    Hey Alpal ol' Pal,

    My max in the Green Machine was 140kph uphill on an Adelaide run.

    .................. maybe that's one of the reasons that the engine is being rebuilt! :D

    Kanga Banga states 147 kmph in her manual, and it's pretty spot on!

    I think the governor kicks in then in 5th...

    Manuals will vary according to the year/release period. Igor with his 1800 case Watson 275 Cam, Twin Dellortos and what every else was put into him (believe he is now a 2000) has been off the clock and happily criuises @ 110-130 no problems.

    By flashing your headlights as quick as you can in reverse you can nearly reach the speed of light, But your windows must be shut! But quarter vents should be open with ambulance fans on low setting....... Ok maybe I should go easy on the Caffine
