Re: 4000rpm at 65? (tracker)

your ratios are all added in! (just change the difference in the Ring and pinions and compare) although you should not completely follow it cause it does not add things in like tire size and what-not!

P.S. that tire size is a wild guesse!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 4000rpm at 65? (tracker)

i am running 205/75-15 tires
on stock rims.
is there a lockup converter in the 3 speed auto?
maybe that is why it is so high.

well if you go back (hate to be rude !) then you will see a post that was...auto tranny or something like that it should be noticeable though anywho we talked about what off-road.com said about those torque converters!

P.S. by the way your tires are 27.1 " O.D.

Re: 4000rpm at 65? (tracker)

My 91 5 spd spins just below that...... factor in slippage in the torque converter..... and that our little rigs aren't highway cars.

My 2000 Tracker doesn't hit 4000 rpm's until 90 mph. Sounds like the tranny is slipping or someone changed the gears.

STUDLYBILLY,that is an excellent worksheet for calculating
rpms!
i'm probably going to 29" tires next to slow it down a little.i will be doing a 2" body lift so it should fit.

Re: 4000rpm at 65? (tracker)

hey I would take credit for the craftmanship but I got it from off-road.com but I still got it! However it does not add things like tire weight so it is not exactly dead on target(unless you have that strong of an engine!) otherwise glad I could help!

P.s. if you want a copy of it I could send you one!

Re: 4000rpm at 65? (tracker)

I would drive it up to 60 mph, and make sure to note the torque converter lockup at 40-45 mph. You'll feel it shift from first-second, second-third, and then a light shift which is actually the torque converter locking up. My wife had a tracker a few years back, and 4000 rpm should be more like 75 mph, IMHO...
