Re: max speed in ur car?

Hit 110 in mom's Infiniti FX35 goin down I-95 with the aid of a downhill goin to DE to drop sister off at college

Hit 102 in Dad's 545i goin from atlantic city to home. Felt like I was only goin 60 MPH (In other words, that car still amazes me with its high-speed stability)

Both instances, everyone in the car was sleeping, and I only have my permit....yea, not exactly the smartest thing to do...but hell it was fun.

Re: max speed in ur car?

115mph in my Golf, wheels felt like they were about to fall off.
130mph in a 997. Very stable.

Re: max speed in ur car?

using this page: http://www.stealth316.com/2-awd6.htm

which is from the link about gearboxes you posted earlier.

i found a formula, which related gear ratios to speeds. (on the aforementioned page)


Speed in gear (MPH) = [RPM x tire diameter in inches] / [final gear ratio x 336]

estimating your car has 19" wheels, and the tyre diameter is 23".

let's say you rev to 7,500rpm. and you say you can do 100mph in second. let's see...

7,500rpm x 23" = 172500.

final gear ratio for second is 6.908 for the 1991-1993 models.

6.908 x 336 = 2321.088

172500 / 2321.088 = 74.31mph.

oh dear, look at that; you've come up 25.69mph short of your claim.

Re: max speed in ur car?

let's say, for example's sake, that you had a later gearbox (second with a 7.368 final ratio) tyres with a 25" diameter and revved to 8,000rpm.

you'd still only do 80.78mph.

with the above specs you'd need a 5.900 second final ratio to top 100mph.
