also, why aren't you going with a posi?

How bad do the 4:10's hurt gas mileage and what is the effect on the top end speed?

I have been using the 410's in my own Mark for over a year and a half now with no complaints. The mileage is (believe it or not) quite respectable @24 average (with Jessica driving)and my top end is revvy but normal.My rpms @ 75 mph are 2650.People are scared out of their mind when they come into the shop and I recomend 410's.After they pick up their chin from my office floor I take them for a ride in King Mark and they are nothing but amazed! You have to remember our od gear is extremely forgiving with low gears that we have customers running 430's 456's,488's and even 513's!!!
