Re: Why does the XC 70 Cross country only have a top speed of 185 kmh ? 110 mph? (zigger)

C'mon now Zig....this is getting ridiculous. It's not meant for speed but instead....a wannabe crossover wagon. It probably doesn't have the necessary speed rated tires either. Get over it already. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Beyond zigger's foolishness, have you (anyone) ever driven a stock (suspension and tires) XC above 110 mph?<br>Downright scary. Heck, doing a high speed corner at 75 is scary in these!!!

Should top out at 210km/h. <br>Here's a souvenir from the local H.P. @ 205km/h (on a 15km straight away) <br><IMG SRC="http://www.volvoxc.com/volvo_photo_gallery/albums/userpics/normal_205kmh.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I would add the IPD swaybars on the XC, it's probably one of the best mods I've done to the XC. The RICA chip comes a very close second. <br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
