good input guys, i debated 3.90's and 4.10's all winter.. now that its almost spring i think 4.10's is what ill go with. its going to be a bolt on car, tuned, with 4.10's and lots of suspension so I'm going to try to utilize all the power i do have. I think the car will have mid 12's in it at 108+ mph. We'll see what happens i suppose lol

Am I doing it wrong or am I seeing a 180mph top speed for a stock auto 2v? 245/45/17's and auto. Doesn't 180 seem kind of high? There's no way it can be that.

you just cant redline top gear

These cars dont have gear limited top speed its a power limited top speed, wind resistance overpowers the HP at like 140 mph
