Well i rekon mine has a heaps good top speed, but it has so many revs after it leaves power band that u cant use the whole rev range unless i run along the road. around 80-90 metres.
Which from a slow corner i run in about 7-8 seconds, ill time it next time though

u have stock gearing right

no 2 speed

and u r letting it go for 80meters flat stick

cant be good for it

i bet 1/4 of the way it stays at its top speed

it probly ony gets a tiny bit faster becasue its on a sligt slope and gravity takes over

Actually, from my dads house i run it about 5-6 houses up, and about 1 - 2 houses back down the other way, and form the far end (6 houses) it peaks as it passes me.
And gets a few more revs after its left power band.

And i drive it up hill from, 6 houses down the hill, to 2 houses up.

Default 80mtrs?

80 Metres = 268ft.....you should be peaking at around the 40-60 ft mark! If it really is still winding out at around the 60metre mark (6 houses) I can only suggest that
1) your clutch is to soft and slowing your acceleration
2) your running heaps too rich and this is bogging the car down at open throttle.
