Did I mention I did this on the origonal, tired suspension? I don't do top end pulls like I used to with my C4/930 swap- that car I could cruise at 170 with one hand on the wheel- all it had was simple bilsteins and 3.8 rs wing.
If they are the same circumference as the 245/45/16's on the stock Fuchs then you'll have been going the same speed as i was, it's a lot of fun travelling at that pace isn't it

Check out NZ mad bugger Ray Williams setting the NZ land speed record in his 930, in 1995 i think he "just" managed 300kph which is basically 187mph, i would guess stock gears and stock wheels YouTube - Ray Williams NZ Landspeed Record 1995 (Highlights) You've got to be bloody brave to go this quick on a road like that!!

Then he had another go in 1996 and managed 196mph, i guess he'd done something with either the tyres, gearing or raised the rev limit? And he did it in the wet!!! Notice he's taped up everything, removed the mirrors etc. Brave speed on a little road, i have a runway to play on when i do it YouTube - Ray Williams NZ Landspeed Record 1996 (Full Footage)
