Question Who sells the Highest rearend gears for a Viper?

I have a TH400 auto 97 TT viper making 1300 at the wheels and want to have more top end speed out of the car for drag racing at the end of the track. I'm essentially running out of gear in 3rd, 1:1. I prefer not placing massive rear tires on the car. I drive the car to the track. I am using the stock 3.07 ratio. Even with a rear end conversion kit...does anyone know of a company that sells taller gears? I am running HRE 19" rear wheels with Nitto Nt05R ...fyi. thanks

What is the rear tire height? We usually run 3.43’s in our LS cars with th400’s. The only ones that seem to be slightly annoying are looser converter turbo setups on the highway

Check for posts on people doing the mile.

I believe there is a 2.43 or 2.73 but donít quote me on that. Perhaps someone else was also just looking

You should be getting more MPH than that. What gears are in your transmission? What kind of TH400 is it?

The problem with auto transmissions is the converter. We log driveshaft speed vs wheel speed to calculate converter slip to make stator adjustments

I have seen see the Hotrod article of the TT viper and I did call around to several shops and they tell me that the gears are not produced in that ratio. That's what I don't understand.

It is the lack of high revs that is limitting my MPH

The trans. is a Rossler ...good for 2500hp. Converter is Pro Torque. Final drive is 1:1
