Just curious... what did this involve? Very hard? What's your mileage end up at? What are cruising RPMs at, say, 80? Would this give me a signifigant increase in acceleration, like sat 2/10s to 60, maybe 1/2 in the 1/4? Just curious, I think that would be pretty cool... Besides the the butt (sorry for the pun) of all the "big rear-end" jokes, I think it would be pretty damn nifty, and almost worth it... The rearend I have is set for 180, which seems pretty silly. I'm positive I could only realize 150, so why not gear it for that? I think I'd only put it up maybe 400 RPMs at 80 or so... I'd REALLY appreciate any real-life experience.
