that is doing the speed limit in a city wich is 50km per hr

That sounds high to me. 50km/hr (30 mph) may be too slow to set the OD. The RPM's also depends on your rear end gears.

the rear end gears are factory

Sometimes manufacturers will put lower gears in towing packages or sport models. It gives better performance.
