Here, I just went out at hit 120, for the guy who posted the specs of the escort topping out at 119.
120 mph - 5'th gear, @ 5,600 rpms. Plenty of rpms left to hit 130 BTW, every time I maxed the car, it was at 7,600 rpms in 5'th going well past the speedo's 120 marker, into the blackness of the gauge cluster.
Ashleys laying next to me, and agreed to run another race. The video will speak for itself.
