Re: need more rpms

You could throw a taller tire on there, or change out the rear gears for something numerically lower.

Re: need more rpms

Not sure. What rpm are you at when you cross the line? If your engine is running well, then I'd agree with 67Rally and gear it down just a little.
There are a lot of gear calculators out there.. find one to help you decide.

Re: need more rpms

The answers above will give you less rpm (and slow you down). You're looking for more rpms to go faster. Without information about your set up, no one can help you.
