Not really what I was looking for. I have a NA CHEVY that makes 1100. Y'all have any advice on transmission gearing rear-ended tire size etc

There are many variables here. What is the length of your car? Weight? Front / rear weight? Tires? How flexible is chassis? i am interested to but from what I can tell these front engine dragsters are way different than the general rear engine four link cars.

 I would go with PG with 1.69 low and use best parts.Most companys have a 2500 rated glide and 1500 so go with 1500.If building your own use their list of goodies for shopping list. Gear wise? I am not best on that for your combo. A 4.11 would not be bad starting point IMO. As for wheel and tire? N/TF guys are on 12's,but thats a rule limit not really choice. I would go with 14 as minimum unless  rule restricted. Should be able to borrow a set of 16's if you wanted to try them,heck 90% of the bracket dragsters are running them. Maybe look at guys running your class and what they have. Most have probably tried few different ones,why not use their education to your benifit? Just my .5 cent worth and still maybe over valued.

Thanks yeah that what I was looking for. We're loading the glide with 1.69 low and I think starting off with a 3.80 great. Thanks allot definitely start looking for some 14 wides

I would say that the 3.80 gear would be a good place to start and the 1.69 is also a good choice ! Do you know how far the motor is out ? If it was a small block car I would say the Good Year 2585 would be the best ! At that power level you should run 6.90's easily ! If I was going to guess about a tire I would say a 12 or 13 x 33 tire would be best !
