Was running out of room and had a 10 mph side wind, so didn't get 6th gear.
17 inch wheels and 41 t rear sprocket, so taller gearing which more than compensated for smaller wheels.
Stock rear sprocket was 48t.
Will have a videon on You Tube in a day or two.

Driver of Hell cat got arrested for posting his 160 plus speed in HWY
IF you're planning on posting it YouTube use blank os thumb drive type & vpn and new google account post it .
Website fingerprinting pull all info this what FBI/ Government warrant ask for medi-data identify you. Banks and Google/big data have been at this long time

yep the govt down here has fined people for the same thing too - effectively you dob yourself in to the authorities and they can fine you for it.

I can't imagine going that fast on my FTR. The speed limit on the fastest highway around here is 110 kph = 68.7 mph, and even at that speed, the FTR feels a little sketchy and I want to slow down. This summer I am going to try tires that are more highway oriented.

Already have more worthy tires and wheels.

I think that was more about running from the cops than just a speed video on You Tube.

There is a well known You Tuber that does 186 + mph on state highways, even with some traffic on it .

Because here is 122 at almost redline in 5th on stock size tires/wheels... at a track.

And the trap speed was 115.71

The smaller sprocket should make up for the smaller wheels so it should be more of a wash as far as real speed goes.

When you download the video, the gopro software will ask you if you want to include gps speed, g force, gps data, and a few other various things.

There are some YouTube vids out about how to use it.

If the sprocket is a factor, going from 48 to 41 is more than the wheel difference.
I have to measure difference in circumference and do the math.
The stock rpm reference to mph in 5th is helpful. I did have slightly more rpm.
Thanks, Chris

Here an article on Hellcat Driver almost 198 mph speeding posted to youtube.
He was charged with street racing and reckless driving and the original video on youtube may still be there.

YOLO

Sprocket replacement and acceleration notwithstanding, if the rolling radius (not just the wheels) but the tires fitted too has decreased the natural speedo error everyone experiences will be exacerbated and the reading could be way out against actual GPS speed. Any decent sat nav will tell you GPS speed or even your smart phone.
