Whilst I don't condone it either I know that Calibers are electronicly limited to 119 MPH. I do not go anywhere near that and try to do the speed limit. And I know this from published figures as well, not experimentation.

Can't get past 90? I have no idea why anyone would be trying to drive faster than that in a fairly heavy vehicle with a 2.4 four banger. Anyways, was he trying to drive up a hill? My Compass will easily reach 85 while passing, I don't see why it would have trouble getting past 90.

I won't tell.

My wife has "confessed" that she caught herself doing 80 more than once just because it rides so nice that you don't realize how fast your going. You could use her excuse if you like.

here in argentina the speed limit is 130Km/h about 80Mp/h.

but hopefully, here we dont have any kind of police control for speed ticket.. for you to know, i have jus tmade a trip from bariloche to buenos aires about 1600Km and almost all the time, the cruise speed was around 180Km/h 112Mp/h and i hit 220km/h 137Mp/h. everybody goes fast here, no ticket problems

but talking about the compass, tomorrow i will try to push it to its limit in the road and see the limit. maybe there is a problem or old software in my CVT or Engine, i dont know, i will get it for a starscan on tuesday or wednesday.

Autostick in 6th gear for me

When I'm putting "Chip" in race mode I use the autostick. It locks in a gear and I get good performance for a 4. That and winter driving is all I use it for.

About 90. It floats around a little at that speed. It also floats over bumpy roads too and thats great.
