At 8000 in 4th with my 4.44 gears I am doing 197kmph...yes it lays down in 5th but I don't need to go much faster. I will take the lower rpm on the highway and just have to be on the ball and downshift early when I want to pass or catch someone.

I love the 4.44 gears! It would be nice to have the .745 OD in my car like you have! Freeway is a killer.

GOOD! As you guys have the most top speed, you can go first to clear the radar for me!

I know with my old trans that had the .86 5th it pulled great past 7500rpm. I did it 3 times (on a closed coarse only of course) and 230 it really really really fast in a 510. I'm pretty sure with the .74 I would have trouble hitting that unless it was a very long stretch of road.

Most I ever did was 140 MPH through the canyon with the Malcinator, that was beyond stupidly fast in a 510, and the car, even with my air dam was really starting to get "floaty"

Ya I got just past 7500 rpm in 5th and it felt like I was just about to achieve lift off.
