I still have 3.27s in my 02 GT. According to the calulator my car should go about 104 at 6000 rmp in 3rd.
I havent got the chance to run my car in the 1/4 yet.
Does anybody keep their 99 -newer in 3rd for the 1/4?

mmac,
So you are pulling around 5520 rpm at the end of your pull? What are guys with 3.73s and 4.10s getting in the 1/4? Obviously in 4th. There has to some balance between the extra shift of taller gears and having tall gears with one less shift. I gues numbers don't lie.

I go through the traps in 4th just before redline. I left my foot in it a second after the traps and tapped the rev limiter, somewhere around 110mph I suppose.

Jeff those are great times. Maybe one day I'll learn to drive!

FWIW I know of a few who have slowed down when they change gears...

My best time below was in 3rd right at the limiter at the 1/4m.
