RE: gearbox and engine w 115 -76!
your engine has an output of 60 horsepower at 4200 rpm.
the rear differential is rated at i = 3,92.
I presume your car has 175/70 14 tires.
great exercice for my studies!:
Rw is (35,56cm + (2x12,25))/2 = 30,03 cm.
omtrek tire = 2 x pi x r = 188,68cm
which means if
Vv = (2Pi . nEngine . Rw)/(ix . ie) , then at 4200rpm in 4th gear you are traveling at a speed of 121.3 kilometres per hour.
Mercedes says your car will reach 134kph, which would be at about 4600rpm. (close to redline prbly?)
