As long as they're over you're ok. Car will probably weigh 700kg ish, so make it 500 per axle and you're fine. As for top speed, again, just make sure it's more....

Don't forget that the top speed you put will affect the speed rating the tester will look for on your tyres...

What's the diff' ratio ? On a 3.89 diff' my top was theoretically 160mph -- not likely due to power and aero restrictions. I declared it to be 120mph as when it was SVA'd the power was 165bhp. Now with a 4.4 diff' and 15 inch wheels / 50 profile tyres , it would more likely be a true 140mph , now it has 230 bhp plus.
I just love the Stylus but she keeps swallowing £££ !
