DO NOT ,,,lol,build a muncie.cost too much.work backwards. what ets do you want to turn?at what rpm/horse power? eg: 7200 rpm with 5.13 gears and 29.5 tires(slicks) will give you 112-115 mph (slicks grow and convertors may slip) richmond has or had an online calculator for speed in gears. 26 inch tall tire is short for drag racing. 4.11 gears and over 6k rpm will give you more than 120 mph which translates into a 10 second car.tremec offers 2 o/drive ratios,I have the 0.82 fifth gear.That gear gives my car a theoretical top speed of 177 mph with 3.5 gears.At 60 mph in 5th Im at 2050 rpm with 27.5 ish tires
