Re: Transmission gear sizes [TANKS]

Speaking of transmissions,
If I run my transmission with a 10 tooth on the EVW and a 30 tooth on the middle
shaft, and repeat on to the drive shaft, I have a 6:1 ration. If I then have a 4
inch drive wheel on a TTS, what is my final gear ration?
And if I go smaller in diameter of the drive wheel, I get more torque and less
