Now I know the car doesnt have enough power or aerodynamics to make this happen but according to this gearing calculator it is theoretically possible putting aside power and wind resistance.

I factored my 255/35/18 rear wheel and got a tire diameter of 25.0 inches. Then I factored the .85:1 sixth gear. Then I factored the 3:07:1 differential and kept plugging in numbers in the speed column until it reached the 7000 rpm fuel cut off of the car.

Heres the RPM calculator:

if u tow it with a ferrari may be. Wind resistance is huge at that speeds. To get from 150mph to 180mph you need like +80hp. it increases exponantely

Did you even read the whole thread? Read it again slowly and carefully
