Default Re: 60 MPH...achieveable? Who cares?!? Let blueprint an engine!

I finally got a tach on my motor and just got back from a test to see what my motor was turning....At 32 mph it was running at 7600 rpm`s, as steady as I could hold it that is....And that mph was read on a Wallymart speedo that seems to be fairly accurate by riding next to a car....Give or take a mph or so.....Idle is about 3600 rpm`s....Much lower than that it wants to die out....
So to go 60mph I`m guessing these/or Jims motor would have to be turning some pretty high rpm`s....

If your living on the edge , you`re taking up too much space....
