4.10 rear+speed limiter= limited 1/4 mile?
Would post in Drive Train, but I figured it's general enough and would get more views here. Anyway, I was considering some 4.10 gears for my 97 Bird, and was disturbed by the thought of my top speed limiter kicking in during a 1/4 mile run. Would this happen or not...I think since driveline critical speed would be reached faster that there is a pretty decent chance of that happening around 90 MPH or so. If it makes any difference, here's what she's got (drivetrain) now, with more to come once she's paid off: JMod - Mark VIII TC - tranny cooler - manual/auto tcc control - stock 3.27 gears. I realoze that the speed limiter is there for a very good reason, but if it cuts in during my 1/4 mile pass, would unpluging the VSS and turbine speed sensors disable it? If so I would only make 1 pass like that, I don't have any intentions of throwing a u-joint.
