My standard Mjet managed a steady 132mph off satnav, then bottled it, on a bumpy 'private runway'

I totally disagree lol. They're not that light and they've got plenty of grip and downforce - feel planted on the road IMO for a small hatch. If you go one step further and change the suspension set up then you're even more sorted but I found my grande has been perfectly competant and comfortable at any speed i've thrown it standard or not

as standard, on good springs, uprate brakes etc its absolutly fine.... what do you think the corsa vxr is..... a standard corsa with more power.... nope, it has more PERFORMANCE parts in it allowing it to go to 150mph ... (i think its 150 or 149 something like that)

so to sum it up no its probably not safe over 120 as standard but mod'ed it certainly is

- just dont go testing thsi out on the main road people !
