    From a 7k rpm shift:
    1st gear around 35 mph
    2nd gear 60 mph
    3rd gear 90 mph?
    4th gear 120 mph (from what I heard, dunno though)
    5th gear I don't know.

    That's the theoretical top speed based on gearing. In the real world the car won't go that fast because:

    1. It doesn't have enough power
    2. It is boost-limited to 148 in it's stock form

    These numbers, of course assume stock Tire/wheels as well. Larger diameter would increase these numbers slightly.
