Ab Jenkins did 67mph on an Allis Chalmers in 1935, so anything higher than that.

The row crop front axle will aid high speed handling but it's still a short wheelbase.
Some of those early speed records were set by Allis as company policy, touting the advantages of rubber tires to encourage farmer uptake.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
