Got to wake up this site. I noticed our newer version Compass has a 160 MPH speedometer. Kinda optimistic for our powerhouse of an engine. Anybody tried to see what our top speed is? Mine will easily do 80 MPH but that is as fast as I have gone so far. Disclaimer: Only try this if you are a professional driver on a closed course, wearing a helmet, seven point harness and have signed all the wavers.

Ok...I admit it. This Covid 19 stay at home thing is starting to drive me nuts. ;)

The 2.4 Compass is not capable of "pinning" the 160 MPH speedo. At best you can squawk out maybe 130, 135 at the very most in perfect conditions, and you need miles of runway to crawl from 95 to that 130 mark. In less than ideal conditions will max out around 120. I have seen one do 135 on youtube though so they throw in a little extra (160) just in case one of you yahoos goes nuts and turbocharges it or something like that :p
