    5.56 gears, you run a high chance of absolutely no traction at all

    Doubtful but its worth a try.

    4.56s have a lot of leverage. I ran a worn out LSD with 11.5" wide tires and it still hooked up very well. Give it a try.

    Slicks + 4.56 = Quickness or something broke. I would get a driveshaft loop.

    how many RPMS and how tall of a tire are your running?

    I forsee you running out of RPMs wayy before the 1/4 mile.
