Re: (phuz)

I thin k it stops somewhere near 254 km/h when in place.<br>Did 267 with my S60R without a limiter so far.

Re: (Johann)

Better question:<p>Pretty ballsy to drive one handed at 260 km/h, don't you think?<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Hope fully that was a digital camera and not one of the old ones where you have to look through the viewfinder!<p>

Re: (phuz)

Looking at the temperature, 26 C is about 79 F. Seems like great performance for a fairly warm temperature. I couldn't make out the the fuel flow, however. What were you getting?

Re: (Shipmate)

Stock settings are at 155 mph. I have the IPD stage 2 (torque limiting deleted). After that ecu upgrade my car has reached 167mph. So if you get the stock ecu re-mapped you can go even faster than the 155mph <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> Rick

Re: I thought R has a speed limiter 250 km/h? (xenophobic)

155 mph = 249.4 km/h <p>My 6mt would hit 155 limiter at 5600 rpms. <p><IMG SRC="http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/5576/1001455amedium7ia.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>So, I think your speedo might be off a little, what size tires are you running?
