Maybe doing a little math before choosing parts will help. Find out the gear ratios of your current trans and rear axle, tire diameter (or circumference), the RPM your engine needs to run at, and plug these numbers into a formula that will give ground speed. Or, switch the formula around to find the ratios needed to attain desired ground speed. Then look for trannies and/or axles that give that ratio. Maybe both an AA four speed and a "dual high" under drive will get 'er slowed down.
