It wouldn't want to be too much faster as it will fly off the track.
As for the car you will see a brand new car but my understanding is it will not be backwards. It will though be lighter and therefore faster.

Plus at very the top they've got a braking system that prevents it going off the end: http://www.parkz.com...op-and-_006.jpg
Thanks for the pics by the way ads068, good to see DW finally are getting around to refreshing older attractions...I'm just hoping the queue gets cleaned up a bit too.

July 31 2004. (Photo page here)
do you know when that photo was taken, it may just be the point of view, but, the tower looks very sexy, with the colours and all.
I guess it could switch spots with Dodonpa because they only have 12km/h difference. I highly doubt it will beat either Kingda Ka or Top Thrill Dragster though.
Finally, just to show a better overview of the steel I thought I'd include this. The photo is by pin142 who posted it over at Theme Park Review a couple of days ago.

Was that a serious question?

Somewhat. They day I was there, no construction or movement of any kind was taking place between park opening and 1pm when the ride opened. It was why I questioned if the delayed opening was really for construction or for something else (e.g. Cost Cutting like VRTP would do at the moment)
Could have been upgrades/maintenance on the controls or theming in the station?

I have heard a rumour that the progress might be slowed, and finally finish during February/March 2011.
That would be terrible... we all know the park is in desperate need of a major new ride IN ADDITION to this ride refurb. Can you imagine if both the new ride and the ToT refurb did not materialise this year?!
