Thanks! My engine won't be stock, but it'll still be a 2F. I don't know how close I'll get to Redline's "Freaky High Output" 2F, but Douglas has put a lot of work into building up low end torque and boosting compression to somewhere in the 9's. That combined with the EFI, computer controlled ignition, and opened up exhaust and I hope it'll be quite noticeable from a stock 2F. However, I don't think I need a 5-speed for my purposes and I agree that 35's with 411 gears should make it fairly drivable even on a highway. So I am sticking with Georg and his recommendations and bottom line is that I just want to get it all back and start building!With a stock engine the 5 speed is a waste of time except on flat ground, IMHO. In the mountains you will be in second or third going up hill and third going down hill. On 35's you will have "rubber overdrive" on the flats anyway.
