The fastest I have been is 135mph in a stock Mazda MX-6 turbo and I let off when I felt the front end start lifting off the ground. This is scary, the car had more in her but i was not going to test it. Picture is what the car looked like but this is not mine.
Kris, I had one of these as well. Great car for the money; $14,000 brand new in '88. I never got to test its top speed, but it was a lot of fun from stoplight to stoplight & handled well in the corners! The only thing I didn't like was the tremendous torque-steer when the boost kicked in! Ended up trading it in for a new GMC truck in '92.
I paid 100 bucks for mine clutch and flywheel was shot. After about 1grand later it was running tops, had low miles and sat up for a year. Window regulators did not work so i took them out and used a piece of wood to hold them up and did the interior in white and red. Added a set of 17"rims and falken tires. Would run with mustangs, then bought my 94 s10 and sold it to a friend for $500. Still have an extra stock turbo for it in my shed.
I was on my Honda 954RR and hit 182mph (indicated speed) but the speedo gets less accurate the faster you go I have heard they are off up to 10% or more at top end. The bike felt like it could have pushed more I still had RPM's left, I have heard that they rev at 185mph, of course mine was chipped and had some work done so it shouldn't have been limited at that point. I just figured I hit over 180 on the speedo and that was good enough for me. It's a funny feeling when you are going that fast on a bike, nothing else really matters and it feels like you are in your own little world. We covered 30-35 miles in under 10 minutes that day if that helps put it into perspective for you.
Fastest in a car was as a passenger in a ZO6 Corvette at 173mph and it was still wanting to go but the road was getting shorter real fast.
135 as a passenger up and down hills, it was crazy cuz I can remember flying by a 35 mph sign then looking over and seeing us 100 over, its one hell of a rush but Im not sure I would do it again, it was in my friends Mustang, maybe a 98 GT, im not sure, its an all black beast, most I ever got in my 78 grand prix was 215, guessing cuz the speedometer doesnt go that far, and my 79 cadi eldorado has plenty of potential w/ the 350 v8 and high rize eddle broc intake and 4 barrel carb / no the stock fuel injector kit
I hit 135 in a 74 Nova. I don't know all the specs but it had headers, side pipes, and a shift kit. This beast would squeal the tires at 90. Not my car but I spent many hours riding in it. I usually got to drive when my friend got too drunk.
I had an 82 Mustang that I was clocked in doing 125 in a 25 zone. The cop was laughing at me cause I lost him till he saw my car parked in my parents drive with the engine smoking. He only wrote me up for 35 in a 25 and said that I needed to slow it down.
