Really? In that case wanna race for pinks? I wouldn't mind another jeep body. But seriously the top speed of the 545 is higher than the nag1 because the final gear is taller.

Not with our 3.07 rear. Whats the theoretical top speed of the 545 with a 3.73 rear? I know 4th is good for 163mph and 5th is good up to 196mph with the 3.07 rear (nag)

You guys have a 3.07 rear? Jesus that negates any "speed" advantages of the nag. Damn that 3.7 must be a dog off the line

well its not a dog cuz of the gearing, well that's part of it. its actually torque management killing power until 25mph....but from what ive heard on the sprint booster thread on here, that may have fixed it. I just gotta do the testing myself....

but yeah, that 3.07 is the reason I want to go up to a 3.73...and I eventually will with an lsd also

don't worry bro, im hammering it out lol. but seriously, torque management needs to go. mine feels like turbo lag when it finally decides to give me full power @25mph.

watch my 0-60/80mph runs, right around 25 or so when it lets go of its choke hold you see the tack rocket towards redline and the speedo climbs faster

Mine picks up 60mph on second gear I usually get happy around the 3k rpms
