Hi All,

i know the V is not designed for high speeds (talking about 140~150 km/hr up); but i want to know if there is any proven enhancement that could make it more stable on such speeds. i feel the car is really flying off the road on 150 km/hr.
I was thinking wider tires, or maybe lowering it a bit, ..etc.

any suggestions?

Lowering it as well as adding shassis stiffening (sway bar, strut braces etc) would probably help. Wider tired would give you more grip, but I'm not sure they would really give you any better handling at speeds.

With all the parts I have on mine its very stable I have had it to 115mph and it felt great no swaying or anything nice and straght. Now when the wind hits it thats different she is all over then lol but not quite as bad as it used to be.

Probably just better, sportier tires would be the easiest and most effective thing.

The OEM tires are junk at high speeds. Replace them before you hurt yourself or others. The suspension mods help a TON as others have said.

The car is never meant for high speeds. That said, once you get it lower and better stuck to the ground, you should be fine at those speeds (on a closed track)

I run the Continental DWS's on the versa, that and a good alignment helps that higher speed wobble.

Good luck
