ive looked through this site and found a lot of the guys with mostly stock 3 cyl metros claim very low top speeds like 70 to 80 mph and they say down hill and all that but mine seems to have very little trouble getting up to 85 -90 mph on a level straight road just curious

welcome. :D

i know what you mean about the low top speeds claimed here. i have no problem buzzing the 3 banger hoopty up to 90 mph on the highway. i've done it a couple of times just to check. i usually drive the speed limit or fast enough to keep from getting run over, which ever works better. the condition of your car, transmission type and final drive ratio, brakes, tires, wheel bearings, compression, exhaust, etc. all play a major part in how fast the car will run and i'm sure that we have a cross section of cars here on the forum.

i hope you like it here.

Welcome to the forums! 8) :twisted:
I too have found no problem getting up to 80-90+mph. On the last meet I went to south of the border there were some hills on the way back (up and down), and I was passing a number of cars with my speedo @ 140kph up hill. Granted, its not stock anymore but it has very mild mods.... I've been side by side with a friend @ 175kph, then my friend backed off... I still had room to go in 4th (a bit.... not much).
