    Didnt race anyone but...

    I had to go pick up my back pack from one of my friends house last night at about 3:30am and he asked if I would take him for a ride b/c he thinks my car is fast(mostly because he has a V6 camero) but anyways we were driving and then I get on a Highway to head back to his house and I gave it a go and I kept on it and we got over the crest of this hill and there wasnt a car in sight and so I said what the hell and stayed on it and going down a slight decline for about half a mile I buried the needle, it was on the mph past 140 and this really suprised me(all I have is an up/dp) and there was a thread on nasoic where someone said the wrx topped out at 144 and there was no way in hell I beleived that but I was wrong.

    p.s. please save all the your a dumba$$ comments and all that I know it wasnt the brightest idea but Im not brightest kid so I guess that works out, I just really wanted to see if it was true b/c I sure as hell didnt beleive that a wrx would go that fast.

    I got my wrx with up/dp and stock catback a few mph past 140 on a flat piece of road. I have the v7 STi hood scoop and it looked like my hood and it were about to fly off.

    I mean this with nooooo offense at all. I'm not trying to dis your cars the least. But it freaks me out to imagine your cars doing 120+ Because, when I hit 120+ I hit it very fast, and I don't spend much time at a high speed. But in the 13.7+ cars, once you hit 100 the needle doesn't move quite as fast.... and then it takes a long ass time to hit 140, and you are spending a long time going over 100mph. It's just freaky to imagine how long you had to have been going at over 100 to get to 140
