    The original pro 15 should with proper tuning hit around 50mph... the 2.5R around 60 and the 3.3 around 70... Unless you are in a very large area, 50 is quite fast and 70 is really just for bragging rights as the car is so squirrely at that speed, but its fun to do a few runs and hang on for the ride.
