Default rear gear

ive got a full tube chassis s10 with a 600 hp 496 and glide 32x14 slicks 9" with 456 gears. im going to run 1/8 what would be a good gear? i have my limiter set at 7000.

I had a '69 Camaro that weighed the same and I liked a 488 over a 513.

i would like to see mine run like that :lol: i may just leave it alone. everything around here is 1/8 its bracket racing anyway. would it hook better with the 456 than a 513?
