Unless you are a track guy you will never try to pull in that gear. Letís not forget the top of 4th is over 100mph.

That tall 5th is great on a Modern US interstate where it helps keep the rpms down when cruising at 75mph.

This gearbox is a steal. Itís about $1500 underpriced with just the lsd worth at least $1k.
