But, it won't do both 217 and run 10's in the 1/4 mile. Gears have to be one way or the other.
Well, now that you mention it, my car revs at about 3000 rpm at around 60 mph in 5th gear. However, from this point, it seems like the only true performance spec of my car is the 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds, because that I've actually proven myself, but since all of you guys are so doubtful of the 217 mph top speed, I'm now wondering where Protomotive got that number. The specs sheet I have does show a top speed of 183 mph with a Carrera's gearing for all four mod stages, and significantly higher top speeds with a 930-geared G50, which my car is equipped with.

The top speeds of the four mod stages with a 930-geared G50 are:

-205 mph for Stage 1, 360 hp
-211 mph for Stage 2, 485 hp
-217 mph for both Stage 3 (545 hp) and 4 (650+ hp) (My car has the Stage 3 mods)

Protomotive had to have gotten those top speed numbers somewhere, and I doubt they're merely exaggerations, which I hope they aren't.
