if you guys take your cruisers on they freeway what do you seem to top out at? lol
70 MPH seems comfy with 33's and 4.11:1
57 if she's frisky, 52 otherwise. 60 for emergency use only.
would that be WITH the wind or AGAINST the wind?
65-70 no problem....
42's and 4:88's
I was clocked once at 92 mph coming home from a LSLC meeting.
4.88s and 42s too..............
been over 100, but prefer to be around 80 ish. soa/36s/465/4.56s
It all depends on the pucker factor at the time. 70-75 with a 350, 4.11:1's and 33's seem to be the comfort level at around 3000-3200 RPM's. I got a 3.73 to try in the rear so I am anxious to see what she's do...
70ish with stock gears 4 speed and a V8, any more and it just seems to suck gas!!!
65-70 on flat level freeway. Can accelerate briefly to almost 80! . Confortable cruising speed is about 62 or something, 33's/4:11s.
my 40 with the nv4500 75-80 mph, the 45 with the sm420 60-65 mph. both have 4.11 and 35's
i go 60 mph and sometimes go up to 70 to pass, i think that there is more in her but with 4 wheel drums i dont know how fast i could stop if something came up. I don't drive the cruiser to get there fast, i drive a cruiser to get where no one else can.
I have never gone over 75 but I think it would, 60 is great still good at 65 at 70 the engine is screaming. It loves 55-60 33s /4.11s
what's 180 kilometers per hour work out to in miles?
briefly, slight down hill, 33's 4.11:1 and a H diesel motor in the troopy
All stock, no problem doing 70-75mph. At 60 I have a problem with one tire that bounces (need new tires). Above 60 mph no bounce.
Not sure the speedo cable is pieced on my rig. even the mileage quit turning over.....that's great. My friends clocked me at 65 flat and 70 downhill.
You can buy one for $20 at Advance or napa that works great and it was not that hard to change out.
65 comfortably. Did it for 500 miles in one day. 70 and above and she'll let you know she isn't happy. 33s 4.11 4spd stock tcase
Have done over 100, GPS verified. Very Dangerous, only did it once.
70mph @3000 rpm was ok cruising speed.
Original 64 drivetrain:
70 was comfortable and easy on 31s
With 33s, 70 is a little tougher - more like 65 most of the time.
Coming down mountain passes I've held 85-90 for extended periods of time.
