Mulitply your top engine RPM by your tire size. Then divide that by your transmissions top gear times your rear end gears times 336.

example:

My motor will run to 6500 RPM, I have 28 inch tires, my M-20 4th gear ratio is 1.00, my rear gears are 4.11's. So it would look like this.

(6500RPM x 28inches)/(1.00 x 4.11 x 336)=131MPH

Just in case you aren't sure how tall your tires are you can figure it out by looking at the size and calculating that too.

example

275/60 15

first number is width in millimeters, second number is aspect ratio (or height to width ratio) and last number is wheel size.

do this:

[(2 x width x 0.0394 x aspect ratio)/ 100]+ wheel size

mine is:

[(2 x 275 x 0.0394 x 60) / 100] + 15 = 28inches
