08 xB has a drag coefficient of .32 which is exactly the same as a McLaren F1, VW Golf GTI and Scion tC.

Guys that don't know what they're talking about.. love you guys

Wow I'm actually surprised there hasn't been any full out flaming. yet. I would never dream of breaking triple digits not in this great nation of mine, sooo... on my way through Canada i hit 170 i think kph which is about 106 mph, man that is a long drive.

Triple digits in a tC is easily done..Is it really that hard to get a xB going?

I was close to triple digits. The xB will get there easily. I just started to slow down because I was getting close to a town on the road. I've hit 97.6 according to my GPS. Speedo was only about 1 mph off too. I was impressed. I also did not check rpm. Mine is a manual trans.
