the Hwy 400 north between Hwy 88 and 89 (after the line 11 bridge) has a very nice top speed downhill run, straight, clear, and 3 lanes. Also on the 400 north, another downhill run just past the first bridge after the Alcona beach road exit, and before the Molson Park exit, also straight, clear, and 3 lanes. (only from mon-thurs at 2-3am)
I'm not advocating that people try this, just stating where they're at.

I'm curious now where you're taking this run....

I had mine up to 220 BEFORE I was chipped, and I have only really gotten up there once after I was chipped, and I hit 227, and that was at the same stretch of highway that Steve did his.

do you have software/chip?

on both my mom's car and my car the speedometer says about 215, but it's really 206km/h where it's electronically governed. The analog speedo is usually off by 4-7%.

NOPE no chip, (well, none that i know of at least, and i doubt it) but i got her to around like maybe 213-215km/h not EXACT, in the between 210 and 220 you know!!
i had my stock 15's on it, and it got there fairly QUICK, i mean it wasn't like STRUGLING to get to that speed!!
and i believe they're all governed differently, the 325's i believe cut out at 245 i read somewhere!

I coulda sworn that pretty much all the m50/2 non-M engines were governed at 128mph (206km/h). Why would the 325 be governed at 245 and the 328 be governed at 206?
