I just took the ForkenSwift for a spin around the block - fresh off the charger - and achieved a new milestone: I have now officially broken the speed limit with it.

Where the previous highest seen was 49 km/h (29 mph), I just saw 55 km/h indicated, and there was still some pedal left . Speed limit is 50 km/h.

Since the tires on the car are 6.7% bigger than stock, I was actually going 58.7 km/h (36.5 mph) - assuming the speedo is correct. Woo!
