What is Top Speed in Each of the Gears
« on: October 04, 2004, 07:27:55 PM »
Hi, I\'ve tried looking around google at every specsheet i can find on the RX7 but can\'t find what I\'m looking for.

Does anyone here know what the top speed in each gear is for a standard RX7 (or even a non-standard if that\'s all you know).

Thanks

I did 133 mph in 3rd at santapod a couple of months ago about 8,700 rpm or so.

Yes Brian, but did the gearbox, clutch and dif join you at the finish line or did you leave them halfway up the strip? :rollin

The reason i had a quick blast in 3rd was due to there being talk of crossing the line on the 1/4 mile in 3rd??? but i guess 4th would be more reasonable to most rx drivers:)

not sure where i read it but some guy was doing a track day with a datalogger and he managed to rev his to about 12,500 RPM

but i would change at the buzzer - you dont need to take it past that ( although i think i took mine to about 9000 by accident !! )
