more cubes more power

Having a long stroke slows the power curve to come in later so I would compensate by running lower gears to get the power curve to start developing earlier . 3:73 wouldn't do it 4 me I'd go with 4.10s

Thanks I already have 4:10s I find it tough to launch and figured that 3.55s or 3.73s would be better all around performance.

define hard to launch
Get some 4.56's, some 9" drag slicks or ET streets or drag radials and some traction bars. Then it will launch hard.
