How fast have you been

0-79 (That is so wrong)

80-129 (Better but you got 400HP)

130-169 (I'am glad to see you putting 400 hp to use!)

170-250 (keep it on the track!! Offical Rice Killer)

Most every day back and forth to work, I do a nice roll-up in 5th to 100 or so depending on traffic. I drive hard and fast when it is safe and I know I won't scare the shiznit out of people.

Since you asked and my comments on another thread are better suited here, I'll just re-post them:

"This weekend? Let's just say I didn't look at the MPG reading as much as the tach :rofl: This morning, I rode faster than I've ever been in a vehicle. It was the same stretch of rode where my father held the record to date...on Rt. 3 south of Chester, IL in the Mississippi River bottoms between Cora City and the Murpheysboro cut-off, Dad opened up his Buick Wildcat 455. While childhood memories can be a bit skewed, I'm pretty darn sure the spedo topped out at 135, and the needle was pegged. I think I would have beaten my dad today. There wasn't a critter, car, or cop for as far as you could see. I opened her up and stopped at 145...I don't want to know what the extra 20 MPH feels like unless I'm on a track, and besides, if I blow past a Honda at 150, the low pressure I'm generating may just suck them into spin :rofl: "

I love my GTO... :cheers

Don't know how accurate the speedo is but the digital speedo said 156. I thought I was gonna mess my drawers though, so it was time to slow down. I like going fast at the track better. 12.1 @ 120.4...

145 in a 2.0L Saab Turbo... Coming out of Monarch Pass in Colorado. Not a soul in sight for miles.

In the GTO, no roads straight nor long enough, nor traffic free enough, nor state trooper free enough here in Virginia to get much above 90 without getting your license yanked real fast...

The GTO handles remarkably well at 120 and just starts to fell a little too light at 140...thats the extent I've been so far. But thats also a stock A4 on the interstate. Oneday I would like to go that fast in 1/4!!!
:agree My run was dead calm first thing in the AM with no traffic visible for as far as I could see. It doesn't take too long to climb up to 145 and back down though :rofl: I can't imagine doing that with exhasust mods :cheers

Funny you should mention that...

I was running on I95 north tonight out of Richmond and got to 105mph for a spell.

Took her to 151 mph one time on a deserted, long, straight stretch of highway (not that hard to find here in the desert southwest). Kept it there for a few minutes. Much smoother and more controlled than my 98 Trans Am at 140ish. It got squirrelly at about 135, but the GTO was smooth and still felt remarkably solid! Not sure where the speed limiter is, but I have to find it one day!
