I ran a 97 SS vert -Mods mainly was engine and suspension- back in 1999 to 170 mph (I stayed on that speed for a whole minute, don't ask me where I did this), the air pressure sounds around the front wind shield was the main reason I didn't go further, after that run I didn't have any structure damage to the top.
Which makes me think that C5 vert should have a better structural integrity than C4 vert, since it's 15 years later..
Otherwise if its the same I would say don't go over 160 mph in a vert because the sounds alone are scary enough.
