Default Best gear and tire combo for 200-4R naturally aspirated?

I know Im in definate need of some gear, but Im having a hard time deciding on what to go with. Ive decided to go all out with this car as far as it being a track car. I still intend to drive it here and there on the street, but no much. I need some opinions on what gears to go with and if I need to swap tires. Im currently running 26x11.5x15 ET Streets. Thanks a lot. By the way, the 200-4R gear ratios are: 1st 2.75 2nd 1.57 3rd 1.00 4th .67

What are your goals?

How fast are you now?

IMO, 3.42 gears are probably plenty for most semi-streetable applications. You won't see big gains going to 4.10+.

What is your RWHP peak and RWTQ peak, rpm of peak horsepower/TQ and estimated trap speed? Also vehicle weight?

28x9x15 inch MT ET Drags are a GREAT tire for the track (27.3 overall height)

does the 200R you are getting have a transbrake?
