Enter the axle ratio, transmission gear ratio, and the transfer case ratio into the calculator to determine the final drive ratio.

## Final Drive Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the final drive ratio of a car.

DR = AR * TR * TCR

- Where DR is the drive ratio (ratio :1)
- AR is the axle ratio : 1
- TR is the transmission gear ratio : 1
- TCR is the transfer case ratio : 1

## Final Drive Ratio Definition

A final drive ratio is defined as the final ratio between the engine rpm to the wheel rpm of a car or vehicle.

## Final Drive Ratio Example

How to calculate the final drive ratio?

**First, determine the axel ratio.**For this example we will say the axel ratio is 5:1.

**Next, determine the transmission ratio.**For this example the transmission ratio is 2:1.

**Next, determine the transfer case ratio.**For this example and most cases this is 1:1 on the high end.

**Finally, calculate the final drive ratio.**Using the equation above we find the drive ratio to be 10:1
