Don't know your tire diameter, but a 26" tire, 6000 rpm, high gear (1.0 ratio), with 4.11 rear results in about 116 mph. 400hp ought to pull to that no problem. To go faster, you need a higher rpm, taller tire, or lower gear (less than 4.11), or some combination of those. As was mentioned earlier, go too far, and you won't really go any faster, you'll just turn a lower rpm and take longer to get there.
