I've hit 200 then quit. That was my aim and thats what I got, didnt have enough safe road to have a run at top speed. Once it changes into 4th on the auto its very very slow in acceleration...

Top speed is supposedly 223km/h from memory but someone said on here they can do mid 230's before the aerodynamics stop them from goin any faster?

VN-Series I-6-90
200km/h

Im not used to absolutely hootnannying, and my vn is pretty much stock cept CAI and 2.5" from CAT back and ive hit 200km/h also, i was pretty freaked out and a roundabout was comming up, glazed the crap out of the breaks to take it. I dont reckon it had anymore than 10km/h MAX. 5 more likely.

No rebuild and 245,000 on the clock.

Apoc.

My manual gets up to 180 on my local track before I have to slam on the anchors. Thats still in 4th and it feels like it's still got heaps left in it. 150+ is where it starts pulling away from the type R integras :yeah: . Not sure what it would be like in 5th though. I'm going to put a VL 3.45:1 diff in it so try to get better acceleration and actually have a need for 5th gear. I highly don't reccomend these speeds with standard breaks...

or non performance tyres commonly found on many commodores.
