Don't think the 3-speeders went that fast!!
Some models have them, some don't. Not sure what's what, but it's also tied to diff ratios, Ford's reason being a car with 3.45s' tailshaft will be spinning a lot faster than a car with 2.92s for the same actual road speed. Later (ELII etc) cars have fat alloy shafts, don't they?
Having said that, I don't think XRs are limited.
