It's easy to get taken by surprise with the new Transmissions and less aggressive rear ends.
In some of the old 4 speed Auto Trannies, you might get a 1st gear with a 2.48 ratio, a 2nd gear with a 1.48 and a 1 to 1 3rd gear with a weenie overdrive.
THEN, the rear end REALLY made a difference. Big time.
Nowadays with the new high tech 6 speeds, you can get a 1st gear ratio of 4.17, a 2nd gear ratio of 2.34 (nearly as high as the old GM 1st gear!!) with TWO Overdrives. So with a 3:31 rear end, I'm not gonna worry a bit.
I might not see 6th gear very much, if at all, but I don't care. I don't want the Torque Converter to lock up anyway.
