I got the oppertunity to take my R on a salt pan for a topend run, she is still stock, was wondering if the speedlimiter was removed what topend she would get in stock form, any ideas? I would like to mod her before then though. Looking at the gear ratios, if the R was modded and she could pull to the rev limiter in 6th gear what will be the top speed?

Re: S60R and a salt pan (Volvarine_Reloaded)

At 155 mph you can feel she has a little more in her. But your fighting the aerodynamics at this point. If you mod it out you should be able to get up near 167 but I doubt any more than that. I would love to find out though. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

R's (at least '04s) are limited to 135. If you have an ECU flash, you will be good to go.

My 04' was never limited. I remember the discussion way back. We all ran out and started doing runs and taking pictures of the speedometer at 155 for proof.It is not an easy task in traffic! Even on the autobahn.

I'll have to check, some people seem to think you can, some think not.

The problem is most dealers can't, won't, or don't know how to download the software.

Just be prepared to fight for it. Most dealers won't do it because they think it's illegal. It's not. Search the forums for the part #.. it's out there somewhere.

i wish there was a hidden menu somewhere, like what is on the HU-803, but for the car itself. So we could change these things on a whim. THAT would make me joyous.
