I am running an OD Terminator on a 11.90. The 55-57 mph is very possible with a tall gear. Back in the 12.90 days where most cars were 48 we ran a 3:1 gear and 54 mph.

Just curious does your child race the top end? Are you having them look and lift before the finish? I have a 10 and 9 yo both racing for three years now. My 21 yo was great at racing the top end.thjs why I ran the 3:1 gear. My two kids now both ran 7.6:1 gear quite the opposite giving me a 52 mph 11.90 pass. I found that the lower gear was a lot easier to cut good lights and it was more consistent as far as et. So in loosing a few mph numbers we gained a LOT on reaction times and consistency. Every kid is different, find what works for you. The advantage of more mph only works if they wheel race well.
