your 3.0 cant spin almost 6300 rpm....

you need to review your statements before you post
Where was I when you posted this?

My bad, I meant to say fourth gear, and I did it with 29" tires on US 90. Now that you mentioned it, that may have been my '01 2.3L. Anyway, I've tapped the rev limiter once and it was north of 6,000 RPM (looked to be 6,400 RPM, but it was quick and I didn't keep it there to double check), so I'm not that far off according to your calculations.
