Top Speed with Gears

I was wondering if I get 410s what's the fastest I could go in 4th gear

Note that I have a 5spd Mach 1 with 295/35/18

you won't have your top speed messed with...putting it mildly you don't have the power to top out 4:10 gears..not that there are many reasons to be close to that speed anyways. air resistance will stop you long before your gearing will. be safe at the oval track because i'm gonna assume that's where this will be done at.

What's the point of going 140 anyways? How often do you really get up past 100.
I love my 4.10s and have no regrets after the 8 months I've had them.

Do you want acceleration or top speed?? Its not like we are on the bonneville salt flats here lol, i say you would like the acceleration cause i use 4.10s and itll throw you back in your seat sometimes.. But its your decision, i think 4.10s are better for street use especially against lighter cars cause you can launch of and get to your pulling gears faster

Well the track doesn't lie, I come about 200rpm shy of redline at the end of the straightaway on our local roadcourse, it could be higher but that's what I see every time I've checked.

I have 3.73 and that's shorter than 3.55 and I can hit 110 in 3rd. So 4th is about 135

Stock 3.27s for my 01 Bullitt max 3rd at a little over 100mph. Going 120 I'm still on the lower end of 4th. My times at the 1/4 I am about 500rpm shy of redline at 98mph.

Well y'all are right. My speedo is off by about 10.. So that puts my 3rd at 100 and 4th at probably 125 or a little more

---------- Post added at 02:53 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:52 PM ----------

I didn't even think about the change in the speed

Okay looks like I'm going to order the 410s then..

Just worried about going past 120.. That I won't make it.

I don't want to post anything about street racing but, I do race quite a bit over here, and really need top end for 370z and Evos because that's when I pull them ( in late 3rd mid-early 4th )

I just about top out 4th in the 1/4 mile with 4.10s. I would say between 105-110 max in my car.

Depends in distance youll race or run and acceleration youll like, i personally love the acceleration of 4.10s but 3.73s are good compromise.. Maybe find someone with 4.10s and feel how it accelerates and then sorta decide. You know what i mean? Maybe just feeling how they both are will help before you make a decision like that
