    It is electronically limited to about 165mph or so.

    If I remember correctly, if you remove the limiter, the cars are limited by drag to about 175 or so... maybe 180.

    This info was from one of the SLP engineers a few years back.

    Only way to find out is to use a GPS hand held device to find the top speed since the speedometer will be pegged.

    Or read the computer with autotap or similar.

    Disagree-by all means play with your computer while doing 170+,hell call your girl on the cell too!! Ok-I'm joking-last time I was at 140+ I wouldn't even look down at the speedometer until I was letting off the gas and the damn BMW had long since faded in the mirror. There are more important things to be looking at when blasting along that fast.

    when nearing 145, the dashed white lines becomes a solid white line
