I found out because the fuel to the engine was cut off.... when I got to 180... I was abit worried and read my owners manual and in there it said that utes are speed limited to 180kms and I think it said that sedans are speed limited to 220kms (this is for the BA's tho).

Cheers

They're what are on the FPV range from factory.

I've personally had them up to 240. :twisted:
