I need help choosing a good combination of gear ratios for my car, both transmission and differential. Without me saying what is which, I want you guys to tell me what you think is a better set of max speeds in MPH for each gear up to fourth gear.

Thanks!

By the way, this is for a V6. And the lower the max speed, the harder it pulls.

Option #1:

1st: 51
2nd: 80
3rd: 110
4th: 176

70 MPH @ 1929 RPM

Option #2:
1st: 46
2nd: 71
3rd: 98
4th: 157

70 MPH @ 2160 RPM

Option #3:
1st: 43
2nd: 67
3rd: 93
4th: 149

70 MPH @ 2279 RPM

Option #4:
1st: 43
2nd: 75
3rd: 113
4th: 152

70 MPH @ 1723 RPM

Option #5:
1st: 38
2nd: 66
3rd: 101
4th: 135

70 MPH @ 1930 RPM
