expensive is a relevant term there are alot more good deals out there on bracket style glides then turbo 350s and turbo 400s not saying it would be cheaper. but it would be really close gear ratios and you would have a over drive for the street and glide simplicity and durability and low rotating weight. might not be a bad package and if you were just bracket racing don't worry about the middle gear and just run it like a glide.

Didn't Freibergers "F-bomb" camaro at one point have a glide with a G-Vendors?

Not sure what kind of racing your doing but a slower heavy car with a glide I always had trouble catching a light footbraking. The car just don't react to where I like leaving. My personal preference, maybe others who leave on a different spot would be fine.

car should be 3000-3200 total, some consider that heavy and other light.
I know as much as I can learn and try to keep an open mind to anything!

If I didn't overthink stuff I wouldn't be on speedtalk!
