    Ok here is the materials you will need .

    1.) Stopwatch
    2.)Chalk
    3.)A friend with good reaction time
    4.)A cacutlater

    Step one , tune engine to perfection and get it warmed up make two lines in a street , parkinglot , watever , ten feet apart like this __________
    _|_____|__
    Step two

    Get to top speed then as soon as you hit the first line start the stopwatch , and stop this at the second . Remeber to get up to full speed before crossing the first , and second , line .

    Step three

    Do this several time and find your average time by adding up all the times , decimals to , and deviding them by the amount of passes you added up . Then fing your feet per second by dividing your average by ten (feet) . That is your feet per second then multiply it by.682 and WALAY mph .

    With your 17t cb and your 36t spur with a wide ratio installed and at an estimate of 40,000 rpm's you should be going approximately

    54.9 mph according to http://www.radiocontrolzone.com/cars/calculator.asp

    and even if you aren't going at 40,000rpm's you're still flyin' pretty fast with that setup man!
