you my friend are the reason why ive gotten 4 free trips to the biggest shitholes on earth. well i guess kuwait was nice so thank you. seriously, i hope thats not your daily driver and you can afford the gas prices. anybody know what kinda mpg he can expect with 4.88 gears?
hehe, thats funny 21k95rx7!!! personally, i dont know why 4.88 is wanted/needed, but whatever. you wont find it. . . you need to go with jimlab's cobra IRS group buy. check it out. . . thats about the only way youll have any sort of choice.
I was thinking the same thing about fuel efficiency, but maybe he just wants a drag car and then it doesn't matter. Unfortunately though, I know of no one who makes those gears for the FD3S so you would be looking to go custom.
I don't know why I'm getting all this heat.
you don't know what I'm doing with my car.
It is going in a 6-speed for mostly drag car.
Trust me I'm not stupid, I know cars.
There are plenty of posts around here asking
about the same gears. I was asking for some help
finding them not opinions of people who don't know jack.
Japan mazdaspeed makes a 4.88 set or it is just rounded
from the 4.777 gears there they do make them.
Rotary performance had a 4.7 something but
the don't have them anymore and won't write me back.
I would rather not go to a ford rearend because I hate ford
but progress must happen so I was just asking.
I have mistakenly posted about 4.88s in the past. I've driven a FD with 4.77s and 315 Hoosiers on it and dyno proved 360rwhp. In the dry the acceleration was explosive without wheelspin, even in first going straight.
The tires are taller than stock, so the 4.77s didn't make as big of difference as you might expect, still cruising rpm is higher.
I believe Jesus Padilla runs a 4.80 gear. You call him names too?
dude, you gotta get off it. if jesus padilla got on here asking about 4.80 gears, im sure everyone would UNDERSTAND what he was doing. . . and im sure hed say, "this is for a drag racing monster." not, "hey, i just want them." and besides. . . why not make fun of jesus padilla. . . its not like hes GOD ROTARY and is gonna strike down on my humble little car for internet humor. geh, get a clue. . . your car isnt THE WORLD.
and, rx-boost, dont sweat this stupid crap. most people get on here to just poke fun. everybody gets poked at. we are a majority of guys, and thats what we do. you didnt "say" it was for drag racing in your original post, so people took it and ran. . . mostly due to the post count. . . they more than likely figured you to be some ricer wanting to "shift mad quick, yo" and all the whatnot.
also, about the ford rear end. i wouldnt go letting the ford rear end stop you. i think its the BETTER option. youll spend a fortune getting the stocker up to par for drag racing. . . when you could just get a for pumpkin.
