I think you're going to get very frustrated with the 95 km/hr in a very short time once you really start to use the bus.  I changed my gearing from the 5.57 (which is the gearing you probably have) to 4.625 that gives me a top speed now of 115 km/hr, which is alot closer to the 120 km/hr some of our states have.  And you should be able to find that gearing since everyone wants the 4.11 gearing for higher top speed, but wouldn't advise the 4.11 with your power.  Good Luck, TomC
