ok so im 17 got myself a 95 WS6 recently and it has the 4:10 gears amd 6 speed and you know us teenagers "need for speed" but it seems to have very little power in 1st? very hard to peel out nd break loose? any ideas or tips to get mow low end power? thanks

well if your WS6 does have 4:10's and a T56 you should be able to absolutely boil the tires in 1st-2nd, lay stripe in 3rd and bark the tires in 4th

....so if you can't something is killing power to allow this or your clutch is toast.

even stock motor and gears..you should be able to lite up the tires in 1st no problem

ya i'm guessing it is the clutch cause a buddy of mine with just a formula can roast em no problem but ya i can break loose in 2nd not 1st

Nope. Something's wrong with the car if you roll into it and stomp and not be able to roast 1-2.

Is there a big gearing difference between a LS1 t-56 and the LT1? With a 4.1:1 rear I get about 1750 in 6th @ 60 with a 25" dia tire.

Edit: What tires are you using?

Mine with a 275/40/17 with 4.10s turns ~1800 @ 60 mph. You sure your not in 5th gear :jest: j/k

Nope, as long as its not a 93 model. 94-02 should have the same gear ratios.

Really Dude. 6th

Are you running a 20" tire?? That's crazy that you are turning those RPMs, do you have a '93 model 6 speed? I know the overdrive ratio on them is different than the later years.

No way that can be right.
Mine does 72MPH in 6th at 2KRPM and thats in line with the calculators. You might really have 4.56 gears but there is no way you have 4.10s with those numbers above.
