Welcome to the forum.
Thanks!

It faster than the semis on the autobahn!

Top speed on my Rubi is right at 95mph. Its no fun though because I take up both lanes. I usually cruise between 55-65 mph and let every one (except the semis) pass me. DC electronically regulated the top speed on Rubi is due to the fact that the MT/Rs have a low speed rating. A stock 4.0 is probably faster due to the longer gears and no regulator. Its not built to go fast its built to crawl!

I have not had a BMW on the Autobahn yet, but a buddy of mine had a tuned VW Golf VR6 with about 300HP that he let me drive a couple of times. The fastest I have driven my self is 165mph, with the VR6. Driving that fast on public roads with traffic is hard work! DONT TRY THIS AT HOME CHILDREN!! I also drove a Porsche a couple of times, but nut that fast.

It was pretty cool out that day so it was better for me to have the top on. I don’t have a soft top. . Until I get a bikini top the Hard top will have to be in place unless the weather is really good. There are a few more Poser shots in my Nikonians.org gallery. Just klick on my signature. More to come for sure!!!
