Improve Off The Line Acceleration.
If your 2010-2014 S197 Mustang spends most of its days making quarter mile passes at the local drag strip, you should consider upgrading to a set of Richmond Excel 4.56 Ring and Pinion Gears. Ideal for the serious drag racers who are looking to increase low end torque for faster off the line acceleration and quicker 60 foot times, these Excel 4.56 Gears feature a much steeper ratio than the factory installed 3.31, 3.55 or 3.73 gears. While 4.56 gears can be used for street applications, they are really intended for drag race use.Superior Quality.
