well loll 80km/h is fast a nuff for a buggy with no back suspension unless you are trying to kill your self or tear apart the rear end if you want to go bigger 340cc it a nuff plus remove the cover over the cylinders,head for more air to go on engine head and cylinder wall  lots of modification or liquide cool engine more modifications..!!! :shock:
