over 120 mph is a high 10 second car. Ive used gears from 2.73 -- 5.57 on the street.My big block Camaro had 3.36 gears and on the high way I felt the gearing was a little steep for long trips,and it destroys gas mileage. I drove my old 67 Camaro from Vancouver Canada to Bremerton raceway Washington state,,60 mph equalled 3.700 RPM on the highway for 2 hours, 3 hour trip took 4 hours
