Ring and Pinion Gear Set Which is Best for your Vehicle | Summit Racing Quick Flicks
This installment of Summit Racing Quick Flicks will help you determine
which ring gear set is best for your vehicle. Acceleration and your cruise
RPM can be affected if you select the wrong ring gear and pinion gear for
your vehicle type. The way to determine which ring and pinion is installed
on your vehicle is by counting the number of ring gear teeth, then dividing
that by the number of pinion gear teeth. There are five basic aspects to a
vehicle that help you determine which ratio is right for your car: Tire
size, cam profile, torque converter selection, cruise RPM and vehicle use.
Do you have a daily driver, street/strip car, or a drag race car? Get the
correct ring gear set for your specific car. To shop Summit Racing's ring
