100 mph. I'm not a fan of speed on public roads. I'll never do it again.
Lulz at this thread.
226mph (364KPH) on a GSXR Motorbike.
I seriously doubt that speed unless it was turbo/ or super charged. Those things are huge lead weights. Be sure you didn't mistake MPH for KPH.
Did 120 mph in a Ford Mustang 5.0 i was test driving. The salesman beside me did 140 mph though
Touched 178mph in my dads BMW M3 E46 in Germany. Thought they were limited to 155mph but clearly this one wasn't! Was on our way to the Nurburgring at the time. I wasn't driving unfortunately, I was only 14
Not my dads car but was identical to this one:
I haven't been much over 100mph myself. Local roads aren't the place for it round here, and tbf, the roads in Britain are always to busy and full of inept drivers so don't fancy risking it. I'd like to keep my life please
yes, it was MPH. he had a supercharged w/ 5.7L LT1 engine.
I forgot to mention a very important thing..The 300 was a Twin Turbo.
Well a friend of mine has a photo while being in England and having 270 kmph in the speedo of the rented Lambo.
260kph/161mph in a 1993 Civic :thumbup: no joke. Still Natural Aspirated!
125 mph in my '96 Camaro (Supercharged) - it had a restrictor plate, but it could have hit ~150-155 if I had put about $600-800 into it. I always thought I should do that, but I was growing up too and made the smart choice.
Prior to that though I regularly topped 100 mph in my winter beater car... on snowy roads in Upstate NY. Not the smartest moments of my life...
I know what you mean, lol. I'll never forget the day I was going probably close to 60mph during a wet snow storm (because of wanting to get home fast). All of the sudden I found myself sliding sideways through an intersection at the same speed as the car directly to the left of me. Thankfully, the tires found some traction again and I was able to spin it back in line. Fantastic fun, yet dangerous as hell. Wonder what the guy next to me thought during that, rofl.
275 KM/H in an older Corvette.
240 KM/H in a 91 Mustang LX 5.0.
200 KM/H in a 91 Honda Civic Si.
No not traffic. The VRS was on loan! Awesome vehicle.
147mph on a VFR500R
189mph in a carrerra of which year i dont know
100+mph class 10 car in Baja 250
33.6 kts santa cruz 70 off point sur pitch black huge waves.
You guys make ME feel slow.....
1986 2.9L Ford Ranger - beyond 85mph (speedo stops at 85)
1989 2.3L Ford Mustang - 115mph
1992 1.5L Hyundai Scoupe - 110mph
2002 1.8L Nissan Sentra - 105mph
2005 2.0L Ford Focus - 112mph
2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse - 114mph (not my car)
1986 Mercury Capri - 125mph (not my car either....HEAVILY modified)
Try a 1993 Dodge Caravan at 85mph.....that's freakin SCARY unstable....
Try a 20sec lap on a 1/10 mile asphalt oval (with patches in every corner) in a Champ Kart...
In fact, here's a video of the track I raced on.....lol, about 10 years after I quit racing there (and after the track got repaved, again).
Those guys turn 24-25sec lap times.....
How is a 93 more unstable than an 89? They're both boxes.
Turbo'd to hell, no doubt.
120 mph but not in car, riding a Triumph Tiger M/C on roads in Colorado. Have to admit not as fun as the mountain riding (slaloming). CO roads feature very good sight distance, no trees for Fuzz to hide behind lol. Funnest situation was doing 120 through one of those highway Toll booths..haha. I thought "Buh Bye"...
~ 180MPH, my 1974 Stingray (HEAVILY modified bracket racer) - and it did it in just under 9 seconds. Many times.
Always said that car would be the death of me... then I had twins and don't race it anymore. Still got it though --
(there's no peg to stop the needle on the stock 160mph speedometer, and had it wrapped around to "M" on MPG many different times. No way of telling without the trap speed on the board, but I'll tell you that the road gets awfully narrow at that speed!)
