In either your own car, or even someone else's you've been in?
240 in a 99 cougar.
230kmph @ 7000RPM, still had 1200RPM to go but chickened out... 5th Gear VTEC ownz j00!!
Must be a bike??? FUck, thats fast!
235 km/hr in my car. Still had like 1200 or so rpm's till she maxed out.
140 mph wrx - not mine
i am not sure - it was a 2001 supercharged GSR, and i had the kneedle pinned and it still pulled for 2500 more RPM's - 270 km/h maybe?????
13 km/h on my tricycle
265 km/h on my CBR F4. I backed off, Still had some left in it, I ran out of road.
132 mph in my integra took a long stretch of road on a hill to do it
on a bike, prob 175 mph
in the eclipse 162 mph
i dunno how u guys with bikes have the balls to hit anything over 120
i was thinkin the same thing
170 MPH in my Camaro when I had it. That's with the highway gears in her.
Well, you may not believe it but it feels almost "safer" to me. My bike is so stable at speed, its hard to tell how fast you are going. On another note, when you are riding down the highway and drop it down 3 or 4 gears and pin the throttle you gotta remember that its only a few seconds till you double your speed, it sneaks up on you so fast its not funny, you look down at the speedo and see that it says 265, 300 whatever and you yell out "HOLY FUCK" and let off the throttle :eek2: . Hmmm , Im going riding!
250 in my rx7 quite a few times. But it always got there fast hehe
165 MPH ( not sure what that is in km/h ) in the eclipse two or three years ago... friend was with me... My car has been modified more since then and top speed should be at least 20 km/h more now.
edit: 265 km/h = 165 mph... so I should be able to bury the needle now ( 290 km/h )....and we all know how inaccurate speedos are at that high a speed... so I am not claiming I can do 290 km'h in real life.
190-195 km/h in (not sure cause i olny glanced at it for a couple of secs)
in my shitbox 90 1.5 vic. scarey as hell cause the car's front end got very light, probably could have got 200 out of her but i didn't feel like crashing so i backed off. neever again am i going that fast in that thing till i get some serious suspension mods
Yeah, speedo's are very inacurate at high speeds. They are not calibrated for anything much higher than the speed limit. My buddy Jamie and I used his old mans hand held radar gun (his dad is Truro RCMP) and clocked my old Talon TSi at 137 mph, (boost controller, HKS wastgate, 3 inch mandrell bent exhaust, K&N and regulator) while the speedo read almost 165 mph. I was pretty dissapointed. It takes a big jump in power to get even the smallest speed increase out of your ride at high speed.
238km/h in my SiR
255km/h on my buddies ZX-7
145mph ... 2002 Ram Air Trans Am 6-speed
230 in my gti. would have kept going but the radar detector started beeping.
Darren is right, speedo error is huge at high speed.
There are alot of people out there that think they are going alot faster than they actually are, especially bike guys. There are formulas out there to find out exactly how fast you are going, based on gearing, tire circumference, engine rpm.
I only know what I have gone in the race car, just slightly over 150mph at Mosport and Mt Tremblant, it was geared for exactly that. I hit the rev limiter in 6th on my TLR last year, redlined my Si in 4th, it won't accelerate any in 5th. The speedo on the TLR read 295, was actually between 260-270, Civic was just over 200, no idea what it does at redline in 4th with 15's...Slow anyway.
250 km/h in an M5. This was in germany on the autobahn though, so it was all legal!
200 km/h on the back of a bike, 140mp/h in boob's car on a cruise back from montague damn i love that car and km/h in a 90 5.0 and 190 in my corolla or thereso cause it shuts down.
180 in the grocery getter coupe... (damn govner (sp?))... 200 in my friends civic
Not %100 but it was damn fast on the back of Poole's bike.....don't stick your head out, haha. We were creepin up on 3 bills
200 km/h in my 1990 acura integra rs, i know not that fast but yeah thats it.
Speedo read 285 tonight when I let off. Gets a little chilly at them speeds, some huge wind noise too.
205 in my prelude and i have only gone 160kms/hr on my bike....to scared to go any faster......
167KM/h in my rents echo
210 in my GTi.. im scared to go faster
Gotta love centrifical force...
The faster you go on a bike, the more it wants to stay upright. It's the force of the spinning wheels. That's why if you've seen someone on T.V. racing a bike, and fall off, often their bike keeps going without them.
Fastest I ever went on my bike was about 170-180kmph, in a car, about 200-210 kmph...
