Hottigr .. Appologies i didnt note your 205/60... And looked at your effective 3.11 gearing comment

With a 2.88 and 205/60/13 with c/r gears you would get 23.43 per 1000 so 2987rpm @ 70 mph... And yes 140mph at 5974rpm not allowing for tyre slip wind resistance etc...

Michael, you are usually right and I was going off of memory, so I wanted to check the numbers again myself- no apology needed- thanks. Kirk
