I've been wondering why SVT's gears go so high? It seems to me that being a 6-speed that we would have shorter ratio's instead most of my friends 5-speeds shift way earlier than my SVT. I beat them but still. . .

the Getrag is made for Auto-X and the MTX-75 is more or less better made for the drag strip.

First gear is really the only "long" gear in the Getrag.
From there, they're dang close together.
In fact, 6th isn't even overdrive...it's 1.08:1.
The MTX-75 on the other hand has a 1.03 4th gear, and .77 5th.
