Alright...to go back to the original purpose of this thread.
From my rooommate since I'm too lazy to do it myself...the speed for a certain RPM can be calculated with:
{RPM / (gear ratio * final ratio) * [(tire diameter in inches * pi) / (12in/ft)]} / (5280ft/mile) * 60min/hr = mph for that particular rpm
so assuming he'* running a 30 in slick on the car...
7200 * 1 / 4.3 * (30 * 3.14) / 12 / 5280 *60 = 149.3 mph...this doesn't account for converter slip
So, either he'* running larger than a 30" tire, his second gear is overdriven instead of 1:1, or he'* just spouting BS.
