Default Gear Ratios

What are you guys running for starting line ratios and rear gears?
I just built a 12 degree 632, I would also like to spray it with about 400 to 500,

I currently have an Abruzzi power glide with 1.80 first gear. I have 2 sets of rear gears 3.70 & 4.30.
Car weighs 3100. 14 wide tire.

What are your thoughts on changing the to 1.65 or 1.58 gear sets? I would also like to run a few motor only events.

I’d say keep the 1.80 and use a progressive for the nitrous passes, lots or ways to make it work, the converter will be the key with that much nitrous going to be hard to get best of both worlds
