I think its 230km/h or something like that. But why would you need to go that fast?

Find a dead open road in the middle of bum f**k no where and plant it and wait for the ecu to cut the power.

dont do this unless you have owned the car and driven it for atleast a couple years and you know what its gointo do.
if you dont know the suspension or anythin you do this at them speeds it doesnt take much to go wrong. and when it goes wrong at 200km/h its a big fuk up.

I've had the car for about 6 months so far driven 500km+ trips in one go almost every weekend so far, passing road trains so pretty use to the car and raced speedway for 4 and a half years. And I don't bother speeding to much as the cost for 98RON where I live in close to $1.70 and it starts to cost a bit chewing up all the fuel lol. I just want to know what speed it's restricted to.

Tried getting the rear wheels off the ground (somehow get the car stable enough) and gradually accelerate it until it hits the speed limiter?

It's more than 200km/h for certain, I got my $$ on 220km/h.

Really? That's pretty s**t man. I've gotten my 04 BA XT up to 203 from my GPS, my speedo was showing 210. Wonder why yours isn't getting 200 at least?

XT 4 spd auto - the limiter is 200km, you can get it removed by using the sct xcal 3 flash tune but you shouldnt. the driveshaft will spin itself apart and f**k you up!
