Hmm... I guess I can see that, but I'm curious to know how well this thinking applies to centri blowers. PD blowers, yeah I can see traction problems with 4.10s. Centri blowers don't make decent boost and hp until higher in the rpms, so you should already be rolling at a decent speed before you're making big power. If you're breaking the tires loose after they are already rolling at 15-20 mph, you should probably look into DR or other tires with some more grip haha
I'm running street tires with 3.73 gears and a centrifical supercharger. I cannot kick it down at 20 mph in first without spinning the tires and hitting redline. I have to feather the throttle shifting to second or else it does the same thing. I don't intend to run DRs because I drive 500 miles per week in all sorts of weather. But I do need a better tire than the 315/35 Sumitomo's that came on the wheels.
I read a thread once started by a guy running around 475 rwhp with 4.10 gears on his centrifical supercharged daily driver. Apparent his car went sideways almost every time he went around a corner or passed a car. I think the car scared him a little but he didn't have the money to get higher gears. Traction can be a issue even with centrifical superchargers.
I have read a lot of posts from people who have taken out 4.10s for a higher gear. Most were from guys driving supercharged cars but even NA guys who did not like how short first gear became have taken them out. (I read a post from a 4.10 advocate who actually recommended taking off in second instead of first to overcome this problem. Why anyone would intentionally put in a gear that caused them to do that is beyond my comprehension.)
You can overcome some of the drawbacks of lower gears by putting on taller tires. For example switching from 245/45-17s to 255/50-17s will make 3.73s more like 3.55s and 4.10s more like 3.90s. 245/45-18s do the same thing. 19" and 20" wheels really tame down the gears.
