Default does this sound normal with stock gears?

is it right for my 89 notch 5 speed to break the tires loose and spin through 1st 2nd and sometime 3rd gear for a few seconds with stock i believe 3.08 gears with stock motor plus ca intake and exhaust? just funny how my 90 gt would catch traction in 2nd in a few seconds with 3.73s and this one just keeps spinning. also im not to familiar with gears so maybe its normal?

I'm not sure what a regular car is either. Gonna need more than normal tires from a regular car to be able to help you here. lol

Either way, 225 is a bit narrow. I was able to chirp second gear pretty easily with the 225's that came with my car and that's just a V6.

Default Re: does this sound normal with stock gears?

Notch is a little lighter, but what kind on pressure are you running in the back tires? Also, what springs?

Are the control arms adjustable? If they are binding it will easliy blow the tires off.
The best way to tell what gears you have is to jack the car up and put it in neutral. Make sure the wheels move freely and that the brakes aren't binding. Mark a tire and the driveshaft. Have someone rotate the tire and count how many times the pinion rotates with one revoultion of the tire. If the pinion rotates just barely over 3 times you know you have 3.08's. 3 and a half times would be 3.55's and so on.

its all simply about wheel speed. much easier to keep a 3.08 spinning than a 3.73.
