Gear ratios

What are the best gear ratios for somebody that rarely takes the highway and usually the speed limit is 45?

4.10's would probably be best.
maybe 4.56... that'd probably be too much for most of us though.

Gears don't add power. They just make you accelerate faster

Not even close. But 4.10s and that rwhp will be pretty fun for a driver.

One other thing to consider if you plan to track the car is what future mods you plan and to determine what your car will trap at at the track you plan to race at (either 1/4 or 1/8). If you go with too tall of a gear you may be forced to either coast through part of the track or to shift again actually causing not as good of a time as if you went with a slightly smaller gear.

This is why I always try and tell people there isn't no best part its what works best for what your trying to accomplish. And instead of just throwing parts at a car determine what you want to accomplish with the car and what the end goal is and figure out what you need to do even if you cant do it all at once. And could possible save you a lot of money in the long run.

Im not going to use it for the track i just want a car that is very fun to drive and will at least attempt to put me back in my seat when i floor it.

gears, Windstar, cam, port and polished heads, and a 4.2. Then you could run with but not keep up with the new MUSTANGS. A 3.8 would loose a lot of tq.
