Default Gear & Tire question

I have an 70 nova bracket car, looks like it was built around the 90s or so. The car is on 33x10.5 Hoosier slicks, 5:13s in the rear. I’m hitting trap around 63-6500. How would going down to 29s affect my car? Car is running around 7.4-7.5.

Car specs:
12 bolt
Strange axles
5.13 gears
Th400 reverse manual valvebody no brake
60 over 350
Dome top pistons
H beam rods
Solid lift cam
Holley alum heads
Quick fuel 750

So, you must be trapping about 118mph at 6500?
33 to 29 inch tire jumps you from 6475rpm to 7367rpm. (approx)

A 7.50 car going 118????
Don’t know if he mentioned it is 1/8 mile. Lol.
I do believe some of these calculators have 1/8 mile data
