    what MPH does everyone get to before the limiter hits in first gear?

    my car came with some mods and im thinking i might have gears. i can put the rear end up on jacks and spin the tire and look at the driveshaft to tell right? like if it goes around 3 and 3 quarter turns, i have 3:73s? :santa_undecided:
