Default Open Ratios for 5th Gear???

Am I imagining this or does this "clarification" basically remove all restrictions on the 5th gear of all the 5 speed gearboxes?

Doesn't this now allow alternate aftermarket ratio's for these transmissions--or even allow in other aftermarket 5 speed transmissions?

Why wasn't this mentioned to the membership? Isn't this more rules creep?

Inquiring minds want to know!

5th gear has to be one of the designated ratios, and this does not change that. What this means is that you can have a 4 speed with the four first gears listed for the 5 speed.

Can you have a 5 speed with the first 4 gears listed for the 4 speed and the 5th gear within .05 of the listed 5th gear?

Example, would the TKO 600 be legal?

1st 2.87

2nd 1.89

3rd 1.28

4th 1

5th .64

All are within .05 of the listed 4 speed and the 5th gear of the listed five speed.

repeated requests, over the years, to change the gear ratios, have always been met with negative feedback from the AS community. I don't see that changing any time soon, if ever.
