AXLE RATIO - Axle Ratio

The axle ratio is the proportion between a vehicle's driveshaft rotation and its driving wheel axle. For example, a 3:1 axle ratio means that the driveshaft turns three times for every rotation of the driving wheels. By changing a vehicle's axle ratio, you may change its towing capacity, but this also depends on the engine's power, naturally.
