with a stock tire diameter of 28.63" you have a tire circumference of 89.90 inches or 7.491 feet.
so at 18,700 ft/min the tires are turning 2,491 times per minute
with a rear axle of 2.82 which is what the R/T has, the drive shaft would be spinning at 7,039 RPMs.
with a 5th gear ratio of 0.83 to 1, the engine would be spinning at 5,842 RPMs.
These cars are areodynamicly limited to the 170 area unless you double the horsepower. Someone on here has a vid of his srt8 topping out around 175 on the autobahn. My car shifts at 6250 with the raised rev limiter on the programmer.

Hmm, I just traded my TRD Off Road 4x4 Tundra for my R/T. My jacked up Tundra hit 120mph no problem and I was running 35" mud tires on it. It would seem pretty darn pathetic to me if my previous mud truck would outrun the R/T.

If you don't like what I'm saying, my response can be re-calibrated. Turn the ignition key to the ON position. Re-read my post and at the same time turn the key to the ACC position. My response has now been re-calibrated.
I topped-out my SXT at 115 once, just to see how it does... quite well, in fact!
A friend of mine has a Hyundai Sante Fe SUV that he got up to 135 once... I was really bummed that his little truck can go faster than my car, but that's OK, neither one of us is likely to do that very often anyway. Too bad he lives in another state, or I'd take him down to the track and see who wins there!
