While you are at it you might as well get an alluminum one and really spend some money !

Not sure if they will hit with a small base circle . I know mine would hit with a large base circle with a 3.625 stroke . I had the rods cam clearanced at MGP . The best thing you can do is dummy assemble it and check . Try advancing the cam till it hits then try retarding it . If it will go a few degrees either way without hitting you will be fine . On my new motor I am going to use a Honda rod to give myself a little more room !

Been having big trouble with my sons Pro charged big block ! could not get more than 6 runs out of a high gear without burning it up ! He went to a ringless shaft big pump and 10 clutches ! Also a new BTE valve body ! We will see how that works out !

If it was an un blown car I would say 5 or 6 would be fine but in your case I would go to the 8 clutch pack ! It seems that blower cars are a little harder on clutches ! Also as some one said you might want to step up on your pump pressure a little with a heavier relief spring in the valve body !

Before you get to ordering parts you might want to see if an alluminum rod will swing with that big stroke ! Another thing to check is cam to rod clearance ! On my motor with a 3.625 stroke and a large base circle cam I had to cam clearance the rods and that is with a 2.0 rod journal ! It might be a good idea to talk to an engine builder that puts these combo's together before you spend a lot of money on parts ! Are you going to run a blower ?

In it's stock form the 200 is not really a good trans ! Some of the Comp guys are using them behind a 4 cyl engine but with a lot of expensive parts ! A glide is still the cheapest way to go !

I think the only way to solve it is to add some weight to the front end ! I use my wheelie bar but I run a soft side wall slick and have my bar hit when the tire squats ! If you mess around with your rpm at the hit it's going to mess with your reaction times !

If you have a small cc head you should still be able to get at least 11 to 1 out of it ! When I started messing around with 20 percent nitro I went to a flat top piston to drop compression down ! To my surprise it really didn't slow down much on straight alcohol ! The best it ever ran on the higher compression straight alky was 7.24 and with the lower compression straight alky 7.32 ! If you need to make a little more power just put a little nitro 10 to 15 percent and that will wake it up !
How much of a compression change and from how high of compression? Just interested, thanks
      With the high compression it was 13.8 now down to 12 to 1 !

Sounds like you might be better off changing the chassis and that way you can use any tire you want !My 33inch M+H tire has only 99 3/4 roll out and I don't think that would help all that much !

Chris I have been running that 12x33 M+H on my car and have had great luck with them ! They are heavier than the Good Year 30 lbs but have been quicker for me in the 60 ft ! I will measure the roll out today and let you know what it is !
