|jrod66||I have 49's on my bronco and run rocks, pinion brakes too but I could do like 70 without getting too sketched out and my RPM wasnt too bad, I think like 2800 or 3000, but that is with a big tire, you might not want to go that big, if you have to ask, you probably dont want to know.|

|Fl-Krawler||i had rockwells on my old buggy and drove it to work a few days a week.. i run an LT-1 with an auto tranny and overdrive.. i can cruise on the interstate and keep with the flow of traffic no problem(around 80mph). if you are gonna see any street use get some wheel brakes for them..i ate up 2 sets of pads in 3 months due to street use.. my new buggy will have wheel brakes at all 4 corners..i shopped around and was able to put wheel brakes on each axle for about $100 more than a single pinion brake(one of the high quality ones) per axle..|

It's a shame that manufacturers are so secretive about gear ratios and tire circumferences. If you could somehow figure out these variables, it would be so much easier to figure out the speed of a vehicle on rockwells. Alas, we must be condemned to live in the mechanical dark for at least another decade.
