Ftfy If it has to be an on-track shot, let's make it exciting.

Halfway there. I don't think Bundy has even confirmed he would run these. If something falls through I'll make sure you all get your money back.

This.

If he confirms he'll run it I'll throw some money at it for sure.

Bob?

You would LITERALLY not need anything else. Just pop a gauge in the cluster and let the stock speedo gear live a happy life in the transmission housing. Swap diffs at your leisure and just pay attention to the correct side of the gauge.

If the inside gauge is for the 3.9 and the outside gauge is for the 4.77 why does the numbers on the outside gauge go higher than the inside?

Did rev just do this quickly and is not the actual gauge to be used. Math-o-matics are still needing to be done?

Maybe i'm going full retard, a very real possibility.

So.

Where is the mathematical problem?
Speed sensor is on the trans. In 1:1 gear 2000 rpms = 34mph with 3.9s and 27 with 4.77. At redline (7500) 3.9 = 126mph, 4.77 = 103mph

I threw the gauge together in a half hour. Someone do some correct math and I'll make a new one. =)
