So you reached 218 mph on the speedo?? That's close to 350 km/h. I am not saying you're lying, I am just very surprised. Are you basing your gps speed on a ticket you once got? The difference between speedometer and gps is not always the same percentage. Usually the higher the speed, the bigger the difference. But I do welcome your new video. Did Russ actually tell this board what his HUD was displaying at top speed? Anyone?
The speedo stops indicating at 211 mph. At the same time the car dropped out of MDM mode and DSC completely disengaged (without my intervention), however the car continued to accelerate (on the GPS) while the speedo stopped and froze at 211 mph.
