Good progress Brady!
No, it definitely is ridiculous to put a 3.62 in the rear on a car that has a 6500rpm red line. Even if you bump it up to 7000rpm you're still doing a measly 85 miles per hour at the top of 3rd. Better to keep the ratio low and add an LSD than to sacrifice MPG, top speed and cruising speed. I know for a fact that I don't need to be turning 3600rpm doing 74mph on the high ways.
