55mph at 2000 rpm is what they're saying.
Now to get my hands on some bigger tires and get that top speed raised in the computer.
Should be GOOD TO GO. Its reported to have good acceleration and drives nice and tight.

You're definitely the mileage king!
I'm gonna definitely be driving this shorty a lot, too. Gonna paint it fancy with some single stage acrylic, put some bigger tires on there, and the front wheels are going to get replaced with something like this-


Gonna shop around for some nice used ones, but I'll buy em new if I have to. It'll really make the new paint job look great. That, the duck, and a chrome bumper will really make it snazzy! Some trucker girl flaps and a big chrome exhaust will round out the rear nicely.

my single stage urethane paint that DEV has seems to hold up better than the fancy 2 stage red paint on Redbyrd.
