Now , I posted another thread after reading the tons of knowledgeable trans to Rear end gear ratio looking for the ideal 10.0.1- 10.5.1 match . I spent hours trying to calculate my torque convert on the set up I have an I can’t find it . Grumpy provided me with many threads and calculators . I am doing a gear change in the Dana 44 next year 3.73’s or 3.45’s ( but that’s next year . Now I have a 9.39.1 ration multiplying the 3.06 4l60e first gear ratio with the ( lame I know 3.07’s out back ) my stall is at 3200 rpm . Is there anyone who can give me the number after including the stall ? It’s killing me

"Got my ass kicked off the Corvette Forum,"

how did you manage that?
ruffled someones feathers?
 
Hahahaha ,
Another Welcome from NJ. Got my ass kicked off the Corvette Forum,no great loss.
that is great !!! I myself have been scolded and put on warning ⚠️!!! There are a ton of absolute great guys with a wealth of knowledge on the corvette forum. I have done business with a few and every time it was a great experience. However , the corvette forum has “some old fuddy’s “ that start replies to your thread with “where’s you FSM ? “ “Well apparently you don’t know what your asking !!! “.” Your car could not of shifted from the 2 -3 122mph “ and sooooooo forth ! Again. I have a ton of respect for most guys !!! The forum has solved many questions and problems ! But , there is “those Guys “ !! Lol , please PM me your story. Brother , or if you wish , let everyone know !!! Glad to be here and glad you are here my brother !!
GOD bless ,
Robert
