3.08 gear ratio is not a good gear for launching,true. From 25 MPH up,whats the difference from the 3.08 guy accellerating in low gear and the 3.73 guy accelerating in second gear?
At 60 MPH,in my car,using a 950 double pumper,I can yard the secondaries wfo with out bog or hesitation.In fifth gear my over all gear ratio is 2.87.
I have 5 gears so it makes more sense to go down a gear and use 1/2 throttle.
just saying,if the carb works,it should work at all RPMs
