- Optimal gearing
- Flat surface
... you could achieve a theoretical 190.58mph
If you have other figures you'd want me to throw in there, I'd be happy to do it. The math is really straight forward, I just coded a simple program to handle it for me to avoid manual-data entry.
I love when other math-/physics-geeks chime in. I write stand-alone code to do crap I don't want to type out myself all the time
