5th is the weakest gear, can go first

You are prob going way too fast.. A 308 is a low gear built for top end speed.... Many people run 373's in there 5 speed cars and never race in fifth it is an overdrive gear and very weak compared to 1st-4th

---------- Post added at 10:56 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:55 AM ----------

If your at 5k rpms in fourth with 308's you should be at 110mph
