ON my way south on the NJTP, i decided to stop being a pussah... and see how fast i could go on a straightaway and forget my faer of state troopers. Well due to traffic i decided to get off of it and i noticed that i hit 122 or so. Doesnt sound fast, but it is a ***** to hit vtec in 4 gear on the quiff SS. i have no idea where the tach was, but i glanced and saw it was above 5250. Car wasnt as loud as i thought it would be. Thats probably the fastest i have gone in my car, not in any car though. That record belongs to a Saab 9000 Turbo on Rt 80.

I have the same fear of getting cought. The fastest I've been in my car was 100mph. The fastest I ever gone was in an ITR doing 153mph. I refer to that as Scary Fast. My girlfriend has a friend w/ a crotch rocket that will do 190mph. Now that's scary.

In my car I've done about 130mph tops..probably shy of that but pretty close. Fastest I've ever been in a car was around 150-160mph in a friends '87-89 Turbo Trans Am...I can't remember anything but praying that a deer didn't jump out in front of us (I wasn't driving)..mind you this was in mid December in a rural part of PA at night. Now that's Scary fast to me...

Scary fast is when you shut the car off because of the rev limiter in 5th gear. @ 150+ it gets real smooth, but loud! According to a friend of mine, if you do the calculation of the gearing and the RPM when the car hit RL in 5th you are traveling @ 164mph. I am running 18's, but when you measure they are the smae size as stock!

i hit 160 or a bit more in a '99 nsx-t for a few moments on I-5 from s.f. to l.a.... scary as sh1t, although the car was pretty composed and still pulling. the scary as sh1t part was that i saw some cars realllllllly far away, decided to slow down, and nearly rear ended them all because they came up so much faster than i expected.

and oh yes, before anyone starts jumping around, everyone please keep in mind that it is NOT SAFE to drive this fast on public roads, even if it is a perfectly flat and smooth interstate as far as the eye can see. plus, the adrenaline rush will take a few months off the shelf life of your heart for sure.

kids, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME

I tried going 90 mph on I-5 from sf to la and was pulled over before I could reach 85
Those cops in Tracy California are somethin else. I've concluded that Tracy Ca gets all its revenue from speeding tickets
