The speedos are wildly inaccurate. It might display 140+MPH and go right off the clock. Realistically top speed is around 120MPH I think.

My balls have shrunk as I've gotten older, to me 100MPH+ seems a little 'wobbly'.  :lol:

My old MSM C1J lump done 136mph according to the sat nav and still had rev's to go (used to rev it to7800) but the car was scarily rattling and feeling really light
