Hey, I know that people come on here to get a break from school and stuff but maybe someone could put all of those physics formulas and stuff to work for me.
I couldnt even figure out where to begin.

Heres my question (and stuff that is relevant):

Assuming that my GA16i engine could pull all the way to the redline (which it can't right now) in third gear, what is the top speed that the car could reach?

My car max's out at 165km/h pulling about 4000RPM.

I have a GA16i that redlines at 6200. I also have a 3 Speed Automatic. Gear 3 I believe has a ratio of 1.000 and it has a final drive ratio of 3.476 .

Also to make it simpler, i would ignore any wind resistance, drag or friction.

When I had the GA16i and 5 speed, I was able to slowly creep to the indicated 105 mph on the speedo with 13" stockers. After going to 16's I was only able to muster a wopping 98 mph. I then shortly took the motor and threw it away. ;)

in my 4door b12 with a stock e16s i managed to go over the 105 indicated on the speedo. i dontknow how fast i was going but id guess 115 or so and that thing was screamin. i think i might have also had wind from behind.

Let's just assume your rate of speed is proportional to RPM (remember KISS) then you should see on your speedo 255.75km/h at 6200 rpm

This is a sad thread all of us bragging about going just a tad over 100mph we should all now hang our heads in shame.
Ha! It really is all relative, isn't it?

Yup, I never took the Sentra 10/10ths, the fastest was a buck-five, but she still had a little more in her. I've got Ziex's, custom exhuast, Weber on it.

In my 240SX, I got it up to 115 really quick, and then let off before the fuel cut had a chance to cut in.

btw this was in the b12 not the 240 dunno bout it cuz i only drove it 4 days till it blew up but i hit 120 and i think the fuel cutoff had been previously removed IIRC its 118 right?

their aint such a thing as a cut-off into a b12. ive been testing that last year on the 1/4 mile and can be revved up over 8000rpm (dont do it)

maybe so but if u stay in a gear at a really high rpm to long and then get on it u deff lack enough fuel to keep goin and start to buck, its happend to me a lot when i dick around and keep it in 1st at 35 too long and then get on it real quick before i shift to second

I am doubtful that the car is cutting out due to lack of fuel. It's probably due to over revving and causing the valve train to float. :rolleyes:
most probably...dont forget i got the double valve spring in my engine !! ;)
