Re: different gears in front and rear
ive heard of the heavy metal trucks doing that in the races and for baja, but i would think the split is fractional like 4.56 in the front and 4.50 in the rear. of course, if you have the money to run a truck like that, you can afford to have custom ratios cut for you. the explanation i heard for that was that the front will pull the truck more than the rear will push, keeping the truck more controllable in the high speed, loose surface straight aways, keeping the fishtailing to a very minimum.
