Post Top speed in 5th - Video inside!

Last nigth I went to a private road course and manage to make a video. Itīs the first time, so it wasnīt made steady neither focused as it should be.

The video begins in 3th, pulling all the way to 5th at 7300rpm. the road is at first slightly uphill, then straight. The video isnīt with great quality, but the car hit 230 kph (~140mph) for a long time, with a peak of 235 kph (~142mph).

I have tried in a downhill when I already reached 245 kph in 6th (~148mph), but I wasnīt able to try it again because of traffic. I will try next time

My car is a little tight, mainly because I do 90% city with him (car) and 10% higway/road.

Just one more thing: the car as a K&N induction kit and a home-made wiring cable that donīt improve ANYTHING in top speed.

You have to wait nearly 40 seconds for the download link to show up (policy of the website )Hope you like it.
