Tall 1st gear

I don't know bout you guys, but i think our 1st gear is too tall for the power of this car. My old talon came with 210 stock and had a shorter 1st gear than the svtf. We could have much better accl down low and better 0-60 time if our 1st gear went up to something like 30-35 intead of 40. What do you guys think?

My SVT is #604 of 1079
One of 104 with EAP
