I know it'll hit 120 before braking for T2 at Laguna and near 130 before T1 at Thunderhill.

Have zero desire to find out what it does on public roads, straights are the boring parts before turns anyway.

Agreed. Itís one of things that most of have done once or twice, realized how dumb it was and went back to going too fast on the bends.

125+ (no aero) through all of Turn 8 @ (WSIR) Big Willow. I am assuming 130+ on the banking @ Autoclub Speedway in a couple weeks for Bimmerfest, will find out shortly.... cornering well into the triple digits on street tires is where the fun begins.

I have a 3.73, so probably 135-138mph top speed.
