Why would a 2SS/RS with 400hp plus max at 155 and a LT/RS with 306hp max at the same on the limiter? I'm calling BS till I see it.
I know mine will not pass 155,and I know there is a visible shake in the hood at 140. I just dont see a 6 cylinder holding the same with its big brother at top speed.

Because they have the same rated tires. As stated before in this thread, there would be no reason for the car to limit beyond what it's stock tire is capable of handling.

164....... In my fourth gen, needle was buried so had to rely on the GPS. I still had a few hundred RPM till the rev limiter kicked in, just ran out of "runway".

Your very very wrong...the car pulls hard without flooring it up to about 145.

I test drove one "on a race track" and got it up to 120 in 3rd or 4th.. Very quickly...

But my own car on the roads only about 65 mph...

131. Not saying where.

She was still pulling to go in 5th at that speed, upshifted to reduce RPMs and took my foot off the gas to slow down.
