Forward diff. Wavetrac and ring and pinion gears

Hey Guy's, As we now have a front Wavetrac that will soon be available I have some questions that I would like some insight on.

1: How much do you think this will help my torque steer issue? While my springs and links helped minimize it it is still very much present. I feel its back even more with the sudden power increase from the Procharger.

2: Some of you guys have had some incredible 60' times with just drag radials and also with radials and a LSD. How much more do you feel that a front LSD would have improved your already stellar 60'?

Im also thinking about swapping my gears out. I drive at 70 mph a lot as Im on the highway quite a bit. Actually more like 75 as the speed limit is 70. Im wanting to raise my gearing to lower my highway RPM's to. I would love to be able to cruise at 80 and be below 2500 RPM's rather than 3000+.

3: Does anyone have a gearing/RPM calculator that would work for our rigs I can base a gear choice off of?

Thanks in advance guy's, and thanks Chris and Skip for doing what you guys have done to make this happen for us!

Bernie,
I just saw I started this in the general section and not general performance. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Chad

Im thinking Id like to be as close to 2,000 Rpm's at 80 mph as I can be without sacrificing performance or 1/4 mile times. If that makes any sense.

That would take less than 2.83. Give me gears and I will break down different things for them.

How about 3.07, 3.21, 3.55? All potential options. Based on 80 mph highway cruise.
