It also depends on how muck power you have...If you have a LOT of power you wont need a "high" ratio diff (might even be unpractical!)...what is the point in having 300Hp with a 4.10 and having to take off in 3rd gear!!!

^ I hate the ix gearing, have to switch so often.. It might be better for acceleration but it gets annoying... (especially with knotchy gears like mine)
