So I just acquired a roller FED, it was set up for a blown flathead and C4 trans. Only ran 10.90 as such, low power car did fine with the steep first gear (2.46:1). I am going to run a more potent motor, on the order of 500 hp. Usually powerglide are used to take advantage of the easy first gear (1.7-1.8ish) giving the car more of a "push" and a controlled launch. I can't get a glide in the car, trust me it just won't fit. So I am stuck with the C4 but worried the steep first gear would be way to violent of a launch, and while a C4 with a 2.20 first gear is available it still seems like too much. Is it? Anyone else using a 3 speed in an FED or altered?
