    Welcome aboard the board!

    Please don't type in all caps as that is considered yelling online.

    142mph sweet. most have said they couldn't quite get to the 140mph barrier stock. What are you running mod-wise?

    138 mph

    Do you have a spoiler?
    Were you going downhill?

    Carlo has had his up to 152mph, at which point his driver's side mirror broke!

    120 is the fastest I've gone and that's already stupid crazy fast for me on a public highway.

    Personally only 140ish range (that was just with boost controller and with all current mods too... only difference being NOW it comes up A LOT QUICKER [heh]).

    But a friend of mine with similar mods (~350hp at the crank) said he did about 170mph I believe. Don't ask me where or when becuase I don't even want to know. He is MUCH braver.... err dumber... than I .

    Who did that? Even with 350 at the crank, I'd bet drag limiting is still short of 160.

    Somebody I know down in Phoenix. He doesn't seem like the kind of person to lie at all either so [shrug]. I left out his name for obvious reasons but I think you know who I am talking about.
