Transmission Options?

I have a gen5 prelude that i use for racing on a circle track. I'm running an accord trans with the 1.807 second gear. I attempted to use the stock trans but rev'd out about 300 ft before the turn. With the 1.807 second gear, i was getting to around 120ft before the turn before hitting the chip.


I did a ground up rebuild on the motor and now with the fresh build, i'm hitting the chip around 350-400 ft before the turn. Thus killing my power band. I've tried using third gear but i barely hit the power band.



Any thoughts on what i could do to help my issue? I'm already running as big a front tire as I can find.



Thanks

find your current ratios and then something a bit higher or lower here: https://www.preludepower.com/forums/...d.php?t=312544


Or dump a fair bit of money and change the final drive, but the only final drive ratios I ever saw were lower ratios, not higher, so they'd have to be low enough to help you out in 3rd.
