    Actually, at that mph (113) the manual crosses the line in 4th at about 5360 RPM.

    RPM = (Rearend Ratio * MPH * 336.136 * Trans Ratio * Conv Slip%) / Tire Height

    I was way off base.

    I never paid attention but I figured we could make it across the line in 3rd. When I had my srt8 the car would downshift to 4th with a few feet to go and would lose some momentum. I would've thought the caddy would make it through with 3rd. Thanks for the clarification.
