well with a 2 speed and propper gearing you could probably go 50 but compared to all the engines out there the .15FE is a overweight slow piece of shit engine.

I am not sure about .15 FE, I never play with that thing, just tortured it by experimenting with different oils. Tamia and Fantom (which made absolutly the same way ) go by 50 MPH. I belive if make neccesary mods and tune the car it might goes. Try to make 162 exhaust and 122 transfer with original induction and check, I think it will be much faster then you have now. But remember .15 FE is crap engine and spend time on it just doesn't worthe it. Get OS .15-very relible and easy to work with, also the carb is two needles (.15 FE carb is sucks!!!!!!!!!).
