Are 1st and 2nd gear not useless with the AT 3.46? I spin through 1st now with the 3.08 gears.

Just because it spins doesnt mean its useless . I also spend most my time in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th for hard pulls or the track anyways so its perfect. I never launch so its never been a problem for me.

I waited to post until I checked for sure. I'm right at 2500rpms at 80mph in my step 135. I'm sure my speedo registers a few mph too fast.

My speedo seemed really fast when I had stock wheels and tires. With my first aftermarket wheel/tire setup my rears were taller than my fronts and that helped my speedo over register problem. Now it's about as bad as stock with my current tires.

Thinking of this thread while driving to work this morning I had 2800 @ 80mph with 275/30/19 Michelin PS 2's. Oh yeah, MT.
