Well, in an insane speed run....weight isn't as big of a deal as it seems....while you don't want a brick.

Simple simple simple.....I am sure Cliff Letts L20 and his TC3 both weigh much more than your micro did and I am quite sure they went much faster than your micro did.

And burbs is right.....a car with a bigger pinion/smaller spur will always have a higher top end than the same car with a smaller pinion/bigger spur......assuming the gearing is correct for the motor....
