    OK,, so after seeing a few 2016s get into customers hands, the one thing I has noticed is the A8s are coming with a 3.70 Rear gear ratio,, While our 2015 A8s come with a 2.62... so hoping Top Cat or the few others that have done a switch out can chime in on there thoughts

    The M6 cars do come with this size, But this is for the A8 cars.. Maybe this is how they got there 2016 0-60 times in the low 3s

    Not that it matters much, but won't that decrease their top end capability?

    I don't think so, the top end is limited due to Aero not engine...( cant cut through the wind )

    A taller rear gear will always effect a vehicles top speed, no matter how aero dynamic the car is

    Then why did they put different gears in the a8 and m6? I think it was to make the final drive ratio the same.

    I really don't think the hellcat with the A8 has an issue with reaching its top speed, its not like the old four speed cars when you put a taller gear in you killed your freeway driving,,, this car has double the gears cars had ten years ago...

    I dunno if my window sticker is incorrect or what but I'll take acceleration over top speed any day.

    Maybe some others in the know can chime in? ResumeSpeed Brampton Builder

    Traded in my raptor for this. Really drove trucks most of my life. I'm only 29. This is my first sports car. Did have a couple crotch rockets though before kids. Good times!

    Although I never had a chance to drive a raptor, looks like a cool truck,,I have had three crotch rockets,, and a Roush mustang, a twin turbo cobra, charger rt, hand full of trans am and camaro cars dating from mid 70 to mid 90s. But I think the cobra was the fastest car I have ever driven...

    It's definitely a cool truck but not practical for city driving. Especially in all the damn construction we have in Michigan
