Looking forward to seeing your results too, i love all this high speed stuff
Thank you! Yes, we are aware of the drag coefficient, tire sizes/diff ring pinion setup, power to weight ratio, negative wind resistance, 1-mile mark distance, etc Our in-house Dynojet (upgrade to load bearing Eddy current soon) was tested to see the Vmax possibility if we redline engine with the new NMax limiter + top gear.

If you guys are in Miami, FL are welcome to use the Dynojet 2wd

BTW. I tested redlining my M3 it went up to 207mph @ 8200rpm on the Dyno.
