Swapping to a direct drive single speed would pick that up a bit wouldn't it?

Kuppler: I think that transmission is holding it back quite a bit. Even a stock Volcano tops out rather quickly with that trans. A two speed is where you would see the biggest difference those mods made. I'm sure you would have enough power to climb through second gear.

ya, also im sure you were not geting it up to top speed. im sure with the setup you have now it would reach 30-35. i think a direct drive would be a good idea to

I was there, Holding the radar gun. Im sure he can get it to 32mph, just the way it is right now.
Our Alley is Bumpy and off camber and hard to drive straight.
We leaned it out a bit and went out to the Front of the buuilding and used the City Street. Had to watch for cars
But the street is SMOOOOTH n FLAAAT! He got a faster run, but we didnt have time to CLOCK it. (lunch time over[&o])
I think he broke 30 mph ,,,easy!
