When you drive a Vert, noise ain't nuthin...
98 Cobra Drop Top
| Got the new rear end installed. Heavy duty ford racing limited slip,
| strange gears 3.5, 31 spline axles, new bigger break drums, powder
| coated. Was about $2k built and installed by near by drag shop.
| What Ive learned is that 3.5 gears are about perfect for a
| street/performance car. For over a year ive been researching, reading
| posts, and asking what gears would be right for me. I think anything
| higher than 3.75 would probly make the average mustang enthusiast very
| unhappy with the high RPMs. Also dont know if its the limited slip or
| the gears but it is god dern LOUD. I expected it to be noisy but its
| way louder than I expected. Anyone getting new gears should be told,
| expect the driving experience to change and if your picky about stuff
| you take for granted then dont do it. Instead of telling people to get
| 4.11-4.75. Dont get me wrong, i would still have done it, but i probly
| wont go on any more road trips. Just town driving.
| So now ive got the mechanics of the car the way i want them, she will
| be going to the body shop next month for the big restoration phase.
