AP1, which gears are best?

Hi!, im debating whether to get an AP1 or AP2 and the biggest issue is the acceleration/ which gear it hits 60 mph/ 0-60 times. i know this car is not made for straights, its for the curves =] and i intend to use it for what its made.

i would love to increase the 0-60 so its quicker on the track with less shifting.

1)which gear (4.33 4.56 4.77) would get me to 60 mph the fastest and in second gear?

=== i do have an ap1 engine, with ap2 tranny and gears schematic. ===

AP1 =8900 RPM Redline=

TRANSMISSION AP2/4.1 AP2/4.44 AP2/4.56 AP1/4.77
1st gear:-----------41 mph-----37.9 mph -------36.9 mph---------36.8 mph
2nd gear----------62.8 mph-------58 mph--------56.5 mph---------56.4 mph
3rd gear:----------86.7 mph-----80.1 mph----------78 mph---------77.9 mph
4th gear:---------110.7 mph----102.2 mph--------99.5 mph---------99.3 mph
5th gear:---------136.2 mph----125.8 mph-------122.5 mph--------118.7 mph
6th gear:---------167.9 mph----155.1 mph---------151 mph--------142.2 mph

2)can someone please post something like this with the AP1 and gears? the 0-60 times and which gear, and how fast to 60.

3)which gear has least noise (i will be getting HKS hi-power silent exhaust). does the 4.77 accelerate too fast and cause quick shifting?

4)what are the advantages of the AP2 tranny in a AP1?

5)does the stock AP1 hit 60 at the end of 2nd?

~~THANK YOU VERY MUCH! this is just for educational purposes only!~~

Sorry dude, I cant help...with the chart and speed in gears..but I can tell you that with 4.77 gears in either, you will probably feel like you are rowing a boat. I am getting ready to go out and take a fun run...I have an AP1, will see how fast it is going at the end of 2nd...report back soon.

Sorry that took so long...but it was 63 I think...too much going on at 9K to really look at the speedo... not sure why it even matters.

If you want 0-60 you may look into a SC... Same shifting / less time.
