I have had my stock Gen1 up to an indicated 95 MPH but I am on 155 section tires up from the stock 145s so I was probably pushing the 100 MPH barrier. The speed itself isn't the impressive part though. I was doing that speed (what, like 5000 RPM?) for over an hour non stop! I was driving from Seattle to 3-cities and forgot to switch off of I-90 in Ellensburg and it was right before Ritzville that I realized it shouldn't take 4 hours to get to Kennewick. Time to burn rubber down highway 395... at a hundred miles an hour for an hour!! Thank dog for forged rods and steel nodular-iron crank.
it goes 160 km/h (100 MPH) at 5600 rpm straight and 180 km/h (112 MPH) on "downhill sections".
its a J12 MPFI, 4x4.
compared to other cars on the german highways you really feel underpowered with a justy. its not build to be a fast car. but i deal with it and i usually keep behind trucks at 3500 rpm, good for fuel economy, silent and easy-going.
i often have a compassion for other compacts driven like "pedal to the metal" mentality with full speed, just to keep up with cars who are build to go +200 km/h -> 250 km/h. why not getting a sportscar instead? ;D
121? I think you need to try that again with a GPS. The fastest Justy in the world did 123 MPH with a 120HP engine and clapped out/stripped land-speed racecar specs. You know even expensive Porsche speedos (VDO) are known to be inaccurate in the upper range.
I'll be driving across Canada at the end of the month. I'll get some top speed runs while crossing the prairies. Looks like I'll be an east side Justy owner for 6 months. Not looking forward to the frigid Ontario winters!

deegore: I slept in my 2 door driving from AZ to MN. Some front seats that fold flat would be necessary to really get comfortable.

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

justytrudeau: Are they interchangeable?

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.

justytrudeau: Anybody bought aftermarket center caps for their wheels?

Justy1200cc: I bought a pink sti badge off wish. it was pretty big and when I found a real sti the logo was even smaller than the justys
