Re: Hi speed cars..useable?

Well yeh , thats like say a mid 90's gtr 4wd.
Im thinking more in terms of Vels recent purchase .
A mild(comparatively),tweak and its probably .5+ second quicker 0-60(cos of the weight) but all the bhp/torgue you would want once en route, the 25%+increase in top speed is more of a bonus ,, but is it usable much?

150bhp is that enough..thats a possible near 150 mph top speed(with a tuning box/remap), but would take awhile to get there..

Your buddy wi the traffic light grand prix..its an option but he wont (whenever it gets back on the road ) be going a faster av speed on mway trips?

Whats a good benchmark.aside from 30-70 accleration for hi speed runs say 200 bhp and good torque for a "nobody goes over 120 much" same as here?

edit: typed this ^ before Vels contribution.. , but I have the far that Mway travel in UK is fairly similar to here.
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
