dude, i hit a wall at 90+ miles per hour (probably more like 100+ miles per hour) on stock rims and tires and suspension. i spun a circle hit another wall and stopped, i was doing a good 60+ mph sideways and not once did it feel like it would roll.

SES? I think those of us with the SES trim have "euro inspired suspension" I think they only add a rear stabalizer sor something like that. 8)

Thank you Mr. Newton for an even better reason why:

"You really should only be going past 80 on a track. Even then, you need adequate tires/brakes to control/stop yourself."

Those are all good numbers. Might be fun stateside, but try doing 210kmh (little over 130mph) on icy roads in germany...very scarey, even in the summer...really scared my wife to death.

If you do remove your limiter and you do take it up to beyond the limiter, don't be an asshat and do it on stock tires. Be sure to have appropriately speed rated tires. At least V. Most Foci won't do more than a V tire will be capable of (149mph).

And don't be stupid either. I don't wanna read about someone in the papers.
