i hit 128mph in my 1.6 sport the on monday night (down a dual carriageway), and i wasnt far off the red line at that .....i think that it might have touched 130mph but i was running out of road and im not sure if the limiter would have kicked in by then as well

ive got an induction kit (BFO) and full de-cat stainless zorst system, so i guess that helped a little

.......whats everyone else getting out of their 1.6's

yes, 120mph minus 10% = 108.

your actual speed woud have been 108-115max

FFS, my speedo at the Corsa Vs Saxo day was READING 130mph, but the Datatron equipment said I was doing 115mph.

I believe Patrick's speedo was reading about the same as mine.

Top book speed of Sport is 119mph. I just squeezed 134mph (Datron timed) and that's with 215bhp. A few extra mph requires a hell of lot more power

haha two stroke, think mine turned into a diesel/2 stroke hybrid, the smoke of a fook diesel and the oil burning capabilities of the 2 stroke
