RE: [Chrysler300] 300 F axle ratios.

Hey Guys, Back in '67 I drove my 'F' once at Fremont Drags. Using 2.93 gears, turned a16.38, slow, but not bad I thought. Hot Rod Magazine had a road test showing 16 flat, 7 years earlier. I don't remember their axle ratio maybe someone out there has the issue. I'm sure all of you remember 6 seconds to 60 mph was considered a pretty good acceleration time, and about 7 sec. for our Brutes, but a Cobra 5.5 seconds, WOW!  
Times have in 2015 my Wife's car.... 2.9 to 60. We are having the time of our lives!  Alan

You surprised me on that one, Gary! Drag racing with a 3.31 RAR?!! That would seem to me to uncompetitively long gear ratio, unless you weren't really serious. I don't recall anyone, even in the NHRA stock classes back in the 60s and early 70s, running anything taller than 3.90. Most were running 4.11s or 4.56s, some 5.12. My daily driver/weekend SuperStocker had a 4.56.


I drive to the strip these days also, 4.11 gears.

 When I was drag racing my Dodge at Lyons Drag Strip in 1960,  I went from 2.93 to 3.31.  at that time The dealer had no listing for a 3.18 when I bought my gears.   Gary Barker
