Rear Gears for 95R.

Going to change rear gears in the 95R . looking for some opinions on which ones. I would like to go with the 3.73's but are the 3.55's a better application for the R. If anybody has different gears in their 95 than the stock ones give me the pros and cons. thanks, 95rcobra.

What do you plan to do with it. What RPM do you want to shift at?

I will be doing some track time on road courses with driving associations and for my own enjoyment on the street. after talking to Byron Reynolds at race systems in cali. he was against changing the rear gears especially the 3.73's saying I would loose the useful range of 1st and 2nd gears. I agree with what he is saying but if I keep the R n/a and do not supercharge the motor I dont see how bad of an effect the 3.55's would be in the 95R. thanks for the reply Terry. Later Steve C.

Assuming the motor is relatively stock, I too would recommend to leave the 3.27 in the car. The engine makes no more power over 5500 rpm than it does at 6000. therefore you only stress the engine more at open track events.
