The final drive for the manual (mine) is 2.68 (for wheels 17")

But we are limited in top Speed with some parameters like Scx, vehicle mass, ...
I did the calculation and the top speed for some powers and the result is :
306 HP -> 286.6 km/h
360 HP -> 303.5 km/h
380 HP -> 309.3 km/h
The last final power is closer to reality.

So we can do even a little better with this MRC ...

according to those graphs the auto has its 6th gear go off the chart... am i missing something?
The latest report on the auto box is very long (2.39) ...
