I think max speed is an opening for gear-heads to be acquainted with the notion that shape is a "performance" issue.Many local guys don't fully react to the T-100 until they learn how fast it will go. I think you should keep that info available to the motoring public. It shakes the "girly-man" foundations and plants a seed toward rational "style."
