IN 4th gear? with 4.10's
Yes. Most people don't realize that you're not ever going to be limited by gearing in a S197. Aerodynamics are going to shut you down way sooner!

Granted I've got 3.55s but I hit about ~120-125 mph in 3rd gear!

Does anyone have numbers for an automatic?

Stock size wheels
In 4th they both have a 1:1 so with the same rear gears and wheel size they will be the same.

That 28.8 allows you to see the 135.

Wow - only 2 of you guys actually mentioned tire height which is VERY IMPORTANT in calculating the proper gear set-up on your car. Most of you guys should be able to see around 128-130 mph on 4.10's through 4th carrying the traps and depending on how good your train is and where you can shift at - its possible to see even higher.
