You are correct. Going with a 26:27 would give me a .962 ratio, while the current 27:26 setup has a 1.038 ratio. Not sure what I was thinking...

To get the desired improvement, I would need a 28:25 and it would cost $$$$!

Get bigger tanks!
I've been thinking about these... I would love to get a set, but they are so expensive! On the flip side, they do provide lot's of surface area for stickers...
