Any you drive over 130 mph how often? Most peopel drive inthe 70-80 mph range, less than 3k rpm, not an issue in my book. I'll probably swith to 4.30's but am not totally sure yet. There is a calculator, I thougt I had it bookmarked but don't, that lets you put in gear, mph, tire size et al... I'll see if i can find it.</P>

I think your car either has 2:73 or 3:23 gears you gotta check the vin number. You can go up to a 4:10 gear and not have any problems on the highway.</P>

running top end once in a while is fine, but doing it regularly is just plain stupid. I thought I was invincable when i was young but you grow out of it and hopefully get a little more responsible.

I've only gone to 100 on the interstates I've been on. I wouldn't fathom going that fast unless I was at the drag strip or a road specifically dedicated for it.
