I thought those were top speed limited to something much less than 240km/h? Can someone here confirm this or not?

You can have the speed limiter removed on any of the biturbo cars, just have to know where to take it.

boost + 2.93 diff = problem solved
edit: theoretically with a 3.73 diff on 205/55-15 tires at redline (6200rpm) you'd be going 235km/h and with a 2.93 you'd be going 299km/h.
I think it would be possible to hit redline in 5th. I've only ventured to ~190km/h with my car and it was still pulling decently enough. No way I actually want to try though lol.

I hit an indicated 230~ with my car going down a hill once waayyyyy back when with the stock motor. Was a tad over 6k in 5th, and just wasn't going anymore. That was with 195/60/14s... No redline for me
