I don't know how you could bare to sell such a beautiful car.

Hi Steve,

It's a Rancho Pro Street, 3.875 & 3.80, 2.06, 1.48, 0.89. Was hesitating on the 0.82 "freeway cruiser" but after driving one I abandonned the idea immediately as the gap felt enormous between 3rd and 4th, no way in town (ie under 80 km/h).

With my relative small overall diameter (205/45x16) I am doing 130 (GPS) km/h @ 3900 which is something i can live with. With a torque master like your oxy I would suggest it as a good combination between town/freeway but depends what you are buliding that car for.

Now it is sitting in a rented garage while I am moving, than I will see if I can find any other solution
