As a Chang owner I daily push the limits of reliability and saftey. I drive it in China.
I've done 120km's per hour, just not for an hour. I've hooked up a more reliable speedo and been paced by an Audi. Of course I don't do that speed for hours just 30-60 seconds or so. I'm daft not suicidal.
Sure the stock brakes stink, since that photo I've switched out my wheels to alloy's, they have hubs that have over double the contact area for the wider shoes that I also fitted..... along with a Barnett cable that superseeds the elastic stock cable. They still suck.

Mine OHV will do 80 kph no ppoblem for extended time......I've even done stretches of freeway at 100.
