MPH Question

My truck has run a 1/8th mile best of 9.02 @ 74MPH with a 1.80 60'.....All the calculators I have looked at say that my MPH should be around 77MPH...Does this mean that I am under geared?

you would only be under geared if you were raping out and no why that is happening, i would say your fine, i run the 1/8th in 8.29 seconds at 84.2mph and that is with a 1.898 60 time
