I think the local speed record with a Limitless is 168mph.

I've never had a TC over 130.

Max speed in a TC for me has been 148. Speed limiter keeps shutting you down around 145 but if you ease of the throttle and press it down slowly you can get a little more speed.
Publicity, fame and accolades can make a theory popular. They can't make it true.

I was in fourth gear and just past 6200 rpm with one inch taller rear tires than OEM when I blew a freeze plug, was aiming for 6500 plus seeing if the engine could do it. Don't know how fast it was but thinking 130 range ?

Right now the Limitless will do 100 mph, so a bigger battery, motor, ESC and gearing is needed to reach 150 mph but weird things happen at that speed. So that's my after Xmas gift for me next, plus I need to get another GPS cause that broke when I hit the curb last weekend.

3500 lbs. Turbo Coupe - 1
12 lbs. Limitless - 0

If only Stinger could Pimp my Limitless LOL

This thing is crazy wild, was hauling the mail and hit a dip and the car flew up in the air and flipped end over end and landed back on all four wheels and kept going with no damage. Also gave it a hard left and WOT and was spinning like a top when it flipped upside down on it's roof and when it slowed down she flipped back up right and sped away. A kid watching couldn't believe what happen. LOL

PS. Got a bigger motor, ESC and now she's on 8S power looking for 150 mph
