Contrary to others post saying that this might be a track purposed trans, the trans is not geared for track usage if the 6th is a 0.50. That is a "save gas" gear that wont be usable for top speed. so much for "no compromise." So top speed is not gear ratio limited, but is limited to power versus wind resistance. a case of enough balls to push that brick any faster. They should have given the car a true close ratio with 6 usable gears if it was a "no compromise car"
