C56 vs C160

Postby elielalonzo » Mon Apr 08, 2013 3:21 am

Let us say there are 2 cars both with 4AGE 20V Blacktop engines. All parameters are the same including the driver, the only difference is the other has the oem LSD C56 5 speed transmission and the other has the C160 oem LSD 6 speed transmission.

Who would win the quarter mile drag?

I believe the C56 is just a fraction faster, but is a far more reliable gearbox if i believe all the people.

the C160 seems to be one of the weakest gearboxes.

quarter mile drag? C56. The extra shift the C160 makes will ultimately slow the times.

C160 ftw..no doubt about it, ask me how I know...shorter gearing will give it much faster acceleration out the hole and will leave the c56 in the dust in the 1/4 mile...c56 will only out top speed the c160 in mph in the long run.

I have a C160, would not change to C56, I really enjoy the ratios...

As for top-end, I dont know abt the C56 catching.

The only downside is the crown and pinion is very weak.

Generally for drag racing you want longer gears.
