    Default Top Speed run tonight on the autobahn... wish me luck :D

    Well Well... EDS remap done... dads arriving at Hannover airport tonight, so I think it will be time to check out the de-restricted top speed of the 2.8 Sig

    So far took it to just under 160 on the speedo to verify the limiter was gone... As the non Vxr clocks only go upto 170mph I think I will have to use the GPS speedo on test mode on the CD70 (high hopes haha)

    Anyone know what the top speed is meant to be on the remapped cars? My mates Evo tops out at 170mph so even 171mph would mean I can do him... eventually haha

    Now that sounds like fun!

    I'm sure spoons hit the 170 on the autobahn on an irmscher trip, but i'm sure he will confirm/deny this when he sees this..

    haha how come you were in Germany? Serving then? My dads coming over, last time he was here was 94 in Sennelager when it was 3 marks to the £ and cost pennies for a beer and a fschnitzel... I just know he's going to be disappointed with Germany nowadays. Most of the autobahns restricted to 100/120kph too lol

    I think you should hit 180ish down a nice hill. Don't know the Autobahns around Hannover though

    I wreckon you'll see 165mph - if the car is putting out 305bhp.

    Hope you pass the 170 though.

    That beetle would of been a classic now lol! Still slow... but a classic non the less

    My strip of Autobahn is only going to be about 16 miles and there aren't any hills... and just two corners if I recall lol! But its all derestricted so will give it a go...

    180mph... wtf! Thats some scary stuff, 170mph like I said is the fastest I have been in my mates Evo... and some top of the range Cadillac, a 7 series and a Bi Turbo Mercedes were up his arse (think they travelled down from Denmark or Sweden from the plates) was quite funny!
