Getch'er rear camber squared-up to the road. ;)

The SRT spec's for rear camber are about 50% of the reason the tires can't bite.

Ever monitor your battery voltage while starting engine?

What is a nominal value below the typical 12 volt value for a battery in reasonably good shape?

I currently have 3.06, so going to a 3.17 or 3.23 would be a shorter gear, right? I'd think the context of this topic is everybody is coming from a 3.06 gear as a starting point. ;)

I was just going to make a topic asking what is the closest available part, if I was searching for a rear axle of 3.17-ish? So that sounds like 3.23 is it, right?

Why am I pondering this? I...

Camber is typically not adjustable on these cars, unless you are swapping in different parts.

When you bring it in for an alignment, all they are doing is calibrating the toe in the front and rear.

That was exhilarating! It's not about just catching a V, but how many times do you get to ride on the fender of a HC with RG going balls out on a closed-course?

I don't think the axle ratio for the manual model would be a good idea for the auto, at all. That's way too much gear, not only for the native ratios on the 8-spd, but for the HC engine specs,...

Yes, that is true, but usually the convertor is upgraded to match the powertrain, so you just end up with the same stall speed, anyway. That said...I guess it is unclear what torque convertor goes...
