If you're only considering top speed and not acceleration then the number of gears don't matter. The only thing that matters for top speed is aerodynamics and the power to overcome wind resistance.

The question as asked has no real answer, so let me explain a few topics that will point you in the right direction. The number of gears has no effect on top speed. The ratio of each gear is the important part. You could conceivably have a 3-speed transmission with a higher top speed (for a given RPM) than a 7-speed transmission. Having more gears can ...

It depends There are too many other variables such as: Wind resistance at top speed of the vehicles Loss of power through the various components from the engine to the rear wheel Gear ratios We can get some of this information, such as gear ratios, but the other components necessary are beyond our reach. I don't believe your question can truly be ...

It sounds like you are starting the journey investigating how your car works and how to maintain it properly. Awesome. I recommend that you start the trip with the purchase of a service manual (either Haynes or Chiltons) They run about $30 USD. That book will help you understand how things work. They provide troubleshooting guides for repairing issues. ...

Do you know what each gauge is rated at for current carrying capacity? I would think a daisy chain is fine as long as the wire gauge is large enough. Don't neglect to use the same gauge of wire for both power(DC+) and ground. I'd look at the specs for each display gauge, add a bit of safety margin, then add the current up and calculate the wire gauge ...

Alternator charges the battery at a regulated 5 A/h. It charges at a much lower rate than specified on the batteries usually 1/10 of their capacity. This is because charging at full pin would overheat the battery, generate high levels of hydrogen gas and dramatically reduce the longevity of the battery. 61 A/h battery at 5A/h charge rate would fully charge ...

Just to post the OP's answer to get this closed out: "I just got a new battery a few months ago took the jeep up to napa they tested it n its a bad alternator."

Your car Audio should work well in your garage .Mine has been running for 17 years now .The 12 V DC power supply needs to be rated for the job as others have commented .If you use a switchmode power supply which is more common these days you may get noisey radio reception due to the crud that these supplies put out .Placing the Antenna on the roof will ...
