Need a gearing calc please

Can someone work out the theroretical top speed on a manual EB XR6?

I assume the diff would be 3.45, not sure what 5th gear is. I'm just trying to work out that, given a vacuum, what would be the maximum top speed of the car before it hit the rev limiter please.

Re: Need a gearing calc please

What rpm is it doing at 100 kph ?? say 2000 rpm then work it out from there...
200 = 4000 300 = 6000 rpm Wella.....
Tyre diameter will play into this, especially non std wheels...
