I'd be going faster than 120 if I lived in Germany. We're only reaching those speeds on closed tracks and private property in a very safe and controlled environment, naturally. Certainly not on freeways or anything...


Shimmy at 60! I was about to go get a brake job done to fix this. Is something wrong or just brilliant German engineering? Are you guys doing 120 in Germany? Is so where, I am in Langen, just outside of Frankfurt.

I'm sure I warped my rotors, I always feel vibration when slowing down from those speeds if I hit the brakes... I know they're supposed to shimmy around 60, but I think they vibrate at high speeds anyhow, just less?

Just my $.02
