Gears & Axles - 4.11's + M6 = top speed?

if my calculations are correct, w/ a 26" tall tire and 4.11 gears, in 4th gear @ 5842rpm you will be going 110, what would be the top speed in 6th gear?

In theory, the top speed would be 226mph with 4.11 gears in 6th gear with a 26" tire...

kick ass, thanks, I didnt know about that site calculator, I've got 233 @ 6200, you were at 5900 right? ok so that answers my question weather or not I'll run out of gear, lol, I could only hope so, haha

you wont run outta gear but you will need a ton of power to get there most of our cars can only go so far and still accelerate in sixth , drag starts to play a factor too

I've been 170 mph racing a Z06 w/ my 4:10's, on 17x11 ZR1's, in 5th gear.
If the F-body aerodynamics would support it (which they would not), and the 6th gear ratio wasn't so low, technically you could do 210+ mph. But no possible considering the above
