The AU would have potential to go up to 240/255 but that is getting to the higher end of the rev range not getting any faster BUT the au is limited to 180kms cause of the possiblilty of tail shaft failure (and to stop f**k wits on the road)

It depends on how long you have. Even with the limiter off the 4th gear in the auto is a tall order on a stock engine to push with much acceleration. The 5spds do better. I believe with auto gearing 205- 215kmh range. 180 is more than dangerous in a standard falcon with its poor brakes and stability. I dont feel safe above 150.

YEP BIN THERE DONE THAT
I pick and choose where I do it though. Out back of where I live is a 10klm strip that is where I do it TOO Dangerous on highways.
Also what I do every now and then is take the battery terminal off o/night put it back on in the mornin when it's cool I dordle out to the strip and boot it in each gear just to the limiter then tap it aliitle more as rack it thus shifting the revs to red line at 6500 this gets me to 245klm @ 6200 and believe me thats movin in an AU3 plus I have the koni suspention and the brakes to pull it up as it came with an upgraded koni/brembo system same as the T series.
