5.71:1 8.8 rear gears

Has anyone ever driven a mustang with 5.71:1 rear gear ratio? I guess if I switched to smaller wheels/tires it would be the same, as I have 4.10's in the rear. Still sounds fun!

I had an old mud truck on 38.5.x15x15 tires, front and rear detroit lockers 9" lift built trans 2800 stall etc etc. It was at 5000 at exactly 50 mph. Lol. It actually chirped the tires putting it in gear. Stock brakes didnt hold very well. The motor made 500 fwhp.

I was just thinking about how crazy it would be, not that I want it. Since i changed my clutch and PP with the 4.10s i spin my 7in tires way to easily.
