Anyone try using a taller gear in the Buick? I know the TTA took advantage of the taller ratio. Is it worth it? powersix

As the better running cars seem to like a 28" tire, it might be the trick if one is forced to go with a 26" tire??

Seems like that is the way to go in a lighter, more aerodynamic car. I wouldn't put it into a 3700 pound car like the Regal unless you are going with a smaller tire. IMO a larger tire is the way to go if you are making any changes. Easy to borrow a larger tire and try that out first... :D

Wasn't it Cal Hartline who mention, faster the car, best to step up to a taller gear and named some ratios and at what speed to step up to them.
