The trans should be even better shifting as well. Maybe by quite a bit.
But it does make the gear ratio choice in the diff a most important aspect. Without reading back over it, what was your gear choice and for what size tire?

Thanks

With the right motor then, that could be an excellent performance combination. Even with the overdrive.

My vote is to the wait-and-see category.

The TKO 600 also comes with different options for the overdrive. I chose the higher of the two options. The lower 5th option was 0.64:1

1st - 2.87:1
2nd - 1.89:1
3rd - 1.28:1
4th -1.00:1
5th - 0.82:1
