If you could hit 136 you could beat a wrx (top speed 130) in a top speed race. lolOriginally posted by zoltiz@Aug 23 2005, 05:18 PM
Like I said before - do you think 9mph will save you? You will run out of gears at 136mph. That's 5th gear redline. So why bother?
Top speed is horsepower limited, and an even greater overdrive gear will only drop rpm at speed. 160 hp isn't going to take the tC all that fast. It won't help acceleration at all unless you redesign the rest of the gearing (which wouldn't be bad at all). So, while I agree the gearbox could use some help, it doesn't need a sixth gear.Originally posted by peglegskier@Aug 26 2005, 01:21 PM
any chance of giving the tC a 6th gear to increase top speed and acceleration?
