Default What is final drive?

I was looking my 4000 specs up on audiworld and I see this thing called "final drive" underneath the gear ratio headings. What is it? and how can I utilize it?

You can utilize it by pressing your accelerator till the tranny shifts to the highest range, D, or 3rd gear, the highest range.

Cheers,

George

In a nutshell! 4.11:1 will give you higher engine revs, faster acceleration, more pulling power, less gas mileage and slower top speed. 3.73:1 will give you slightly lower engine revs, slower acceleration, less stump pulling power, slightly better gas mileage and a higher theatrical top speed.
