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...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

pulls roughly 125-130@ 2500rpm
