Cruising RPM

Hey guys, I just wanted to know what RPMs you are at when just cruising? I know running to low will go through spark plugs, and i'm sure running high has it's cons.

Re: Cruising RPM

Same for me, 6k-7k+, stock gearing. I live out in the middle of nowhere so I can go a little faster out here. Plenty of room right out the front door to get her up to 170mph! Good mountain roads too!

Re: Cruising RPM

With gas prices like they currently are? My RPM on the streets is much lower.

Re: Cruising RPM

10,500+ on the track.

On the street 5000-8000 range when cruising.

Blue because it is faster.
