Re: [Chrysler300] 300 F axle ratios.

Le Car wheels must be the new trend. Driving down to the big Morris, IL cruise night this past Saturday, a guy in one of the last big Caddy Fleetwood rear drive sedans merged in right behind me - beautiful big white cruiser with little baby Le Car white walls. He could control the Caddy up to about 65 mph, but no faster.

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
