Do you guys think the 3.55 gears would be worth a 2 tenths gain over the 3.31 gears in the 1/4 mile?

Thanks Mark.

I can see .2 better for 3.55 especially for someone who isn't a professional racer. That margin should go down with knowledge, experience and execution but the 3.55 would still ultimately be quicker. I think the 3.31 vs 3.73 would net a difference of .2 consistently.

If you ever plan to tow anything I would only consider 3.55 or 3.73. With the 3.73 I can tow a 30 ft travel trailer in OD.

Thanks i'm thinking the same thing,the 2011 Truck i had with the 3.55 gears is 2 tenths quicker then the 2013 i have with the 3.31 gears in the same weather conditions.

Later Mark.

That last line should have read 3.31 vs 3.73 would net a difference of .2 consistently with a seasoned racer and .3 - .4 with recreational racers.
