    Dom, watch the video in my sig (from this thread), that was my 13.06 run the other night...if you watch closely, i babied it off the line and didnt even spin first gear, yet i netted my fastest mph of the night, but even with the spinning most of my runs were 108mph...gears baby :D

    I've been meaning to write this post all week and just haven't made time to do so. However, I had a little time this morning, so if you've got a minute, follow along as I take your though a trip down memory lane:

    There are three main characters in this little saga: Psycho Mythic (Cody) who inspired this post, those who told him he would not go any faster with 4.88's, and myself because I am the one posting. To keep this as concise as possible, I am going to edit many, many posts together. These posts span from November of last year until Sunday of this week. I'll keep everything in chronologic order.

    What we see in the above posts is that I was interested in switching to 4.88's. Jack recommended it, Cody jumped on board, and the naysayers started to come out.


    The above posts show that many people stated that 4.88's were not going to make Cody's 1/4 mile times any quicker. Fortunately for them, Cody took the time to explain that although he only races "twice a year at best", he has amazing driving skills that will allow him to make the most of the 4.88's.


    What you see above is Cody asking for verification of his current gear ratio. It's notable that the first two helpful responses are from a naysayer and myself. Later in our story, naysayers and cavemen will be referred to as "douchebags".


    So what can we learn from the above posts? That despite many people saying otherwise, Cody has no traction issues with the 4.88's and will probably pick up 4 tenths of a second at the track.


    That's enough of this one. You can read through the rest of the posts on this thread to see that the conversation went nowhere. Basically, Cody went slower with the 4.88's than he did with the 4.10, just as the naysayers said he would. He blamed it on a lack of traction, just like the naysayers said he would. Initially, Cody thought his super-duper driving skills were going to make the 4.88's work. Even after installing them, he claims that traction isn't an issue and 4.88's are the bestest, despite the empirical evidence he supplied (timeslips corrected for D.A.) clearly showing otherwise. And to all you "naysayers" who tried to steer him right before he ever bought new gears, he thinks you are "douchebags". As for this caveman, I want to say thank you to all the "douchebag" naysayers on the VTOCA that don't hesitate to tell it to me straight.

    Doesn't this thread make you want to punch something other than the gas pedal?
