Which Ring and Pinion
« on: September 21, 2020, 07:27:34 PM »
8 sec FED,  BBC,  4.30 ratio.  Which ring and pinion is the best choice?   US Strange?  Richmond (Italy made)?  Motive?

Have run strange for decades and see no reason to change.If they are having a sale its no brainer. Wish I had enough run time to settle on gear I want in car ,I would buy a new one myself.

Got a fair deal with the on-line purchase from Strange.  Good to deal with!  The are shipping everything today except the axles.  Custom order 4 weeks.  Good to Go!

BTW - Went with the US Strange 4.29s...

Thanks,
Eric
