456\'s, a C6, and 33\'s

This is my best guestimate since I don't have a tach installed yet but here goes. When I was on the highway this weekend other than stayin' to the right lane I am thinking that I am cruising at about 45-50 mph without sending my motor into the stratosphere. I could go faster but I'd be working my motor alot harder than I'd like to. (I'm thinking of renting a trailer for Moab, are we still doing that?) Offroad you ask? Simply awsome. I was able to clear obstacles at a nice controlled decent without alot of brake work. So in my oppinion since most my miles are currently in town it is a good tradeoff. This is intended to be my offroad toy after all and street manners come in second. That has always been my outlook on my truck. Take Care. NORM

Norm, if my calculations are right, you were doing about 2400rpms at 50, so you should be doing 3000 at about 62-3mph. And knowing you, im sure thats as fast as itll ever go! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
