3.73 gears and a 28" tall tire will give you a 135-140mph. I was at the shootout in south Georgia and saw a car almost dead on to what you're describing and he was running 5.30's at 140 with a glide and 3.73's.
Would you happen to know how high it was spinning at the 1/8?

I have the same setup blow thru on a 26x8.5 I'm running 135 mph with 3.73 5.40s but it hits the tires very hard when I shift it and spins thru the 1/8 also Im seeing about 7250 thru the traps with a 1.26 to a 1:30 60 ft

3.73 or a 4.10 gear would work best, IMO!

My old car ran 3.73 gear 28x10.5's. Ran 5.53 at 127mph, shifting at 7000 and going through the traps at 7400. The converter was a little loose on the topend, but it was a great 1/8 mile car.
