When you want to drive fast whit a high powered engine a 3.77 ratio is good.
Engine's whit a lot of Hp the torque come's in whit 2000-6000 rpm.but are needed to come to the high speed .
Whit the high gear ratio , it's not relax to stop and go into a traffic jam.
When you choice is a lower HP engine you cannot drive's it really faster than 250km/h
1/2 hour of traffic jam is not unusual in my country.
