Ok, now I'm interested enough in this topic to start a new thread. I've seen several post where "high" gearing is referring what I would call "low" gearing and was wondering if it was a regional thing or location thing, time period or what. I have always heard "tall" or "high" gearing referring to low numeral gears such as 2:75, 3:00 or 3:25. And "Low" gearing as high numeral gears, such as a 3:73, 4:11 or 4:56. Have seen several post lately with what appears to be a reverse definition. I have been around Hot Rods and racing (both dirt track and drag racing) sense the 1950s and have never heard "high" gearing refer to what I would call "low" gear ratios. Is this just something very local to my area?
