under conditions of best run ever with this one,, speedo was passing (quite easily may I add) the "P" in mph,, it was on snowed over, packed seasonal rd and I was enjoying some saturday test and tune time by myself with clutching used on this day that one week later went 95.6 on packed lake ONLY DUE TO 3 a-holes cutting across in front of me as I was headed directly inline twds my remotely mounted stalker,, speedo was just breaking 101-102mph mark at time of having to let off and grab brake to avoid possible death from collision,, now look at a cat analog speedo and see where 100 mark and the mph print are,, at 95.6 mph on gun, it was 102 range (approx 6-7 mph variance), now look at mph's "P" and as far as that is away from "102" area, i'd be willing to bet that my gun (if i'd set it up that day) would've said between 102-104,, however gun wasn't in plans that day,, as I was just tuning for best accelerometer's "G-forces" on top showing best (hardest) pull on top to verify my rpm experimentation was correct,, If hadn't been cut off, easily over 100, no doubt about it as was still pulling like freight train wanting more!

Only Jeff H knows what's up my sleeve next!

FB,, As long as internal helixed secondary isn't worn out, 95 should be within reach under right conditions
