    3.90 ring and pinion (available again)

    3.90’s aren’t ideal for the mile. I shift into sixth at 185 approximately 3 seconds or around 800 feet from the one mile line, at one mile I’m usually 195mph.

    Ford GT Forum 200 mph Club & Standing Mile Results

Of course they were completely rebuilt with a hodgepodge of parts from every production year. Heck guys even used a crank from a chainsaw motor that mercury built.

    Nico Rosberg retires from F1

    Verstappan and most of the big names fall under the CRB, unless Merc wants to spend huge $ to pay for both the driver and team he leaves none of the big names (Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren, Renault) are going anywhere. Bottas is the one I suspect will be tapped, Wolff client, not expensive...
