cross drilled might help a bit, but our huge diameter rotors are quite efficient at cooling by themself!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Jim, don't any of the tunes out there remove it? I remember my IPD C70 tunes was supposed to raise to 162mph ?

Re: (phuz)

I was just on a close route this week. Private property with 2 1/2 mile strech of track. I have the IPD stage 2 Torque deletion. I had the car up to 164mph, prior to shutting down 1/4 mile prior to the stretch ending. So whats up with 155 speed limiting????? I gues IPD's program streches that a bit further. Note: It was a slight down grade at the end of my run and a 10mph wind in my arse. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
