  • 1.219kg air density
  • Optimal gearing
  • Flat surface
... you could achieve a theoretical 190.58mph.

If you have other figures you'd want me to throw in there, I'd be happy to do it. The math is really straight forward, I just coded a simple program to handle it for me to avoid manual-data entry.
Very nice, smart man.

This was probably around 170mph given how inaccurate the speedo is on top.
