What are you guys running?
Looking to do a ladder bar back half and a 9" on an 89GT 1/8 only bracket car and wonder what tire/gear everyone is running. Ran 7.30's untuned and with unmatched converter. Looking for mid to high 6's with tuning and new converter. Launching weak because of converter and getting 2-3 shift light at traps shifting at 6500. Would like to trap about 7000-7500 in 3rd, so I would think I need at least a 5.14 and a bigger tire to hold that much gear but not too big for my motor. I was thinking of a 29.5X11.5W or 13.5. The two goals I want out of this is consistancy and a rear end I can grow into when I can build a 5 sec motor but not overkill for my current combo. Thanks for any input.

with the right converter, you should be able to get your goal with the gears you have.
