Maybe 120-ish in a 1980 rx7 years ago.

fastest I've ever gotten to 100 (on a test track,of course) was in a modified Z06.

183 is what my digital speedo said on my KAW 636 but I know it isnt right, I would figure it to be around 175.
But I have been in a 3rd gen RX7 that went 185 I just wasnt driving.

155 on m-59 in a Viper

160 something on I-75 Kawasaki ZX-7R, I wasn't going to take my eyes off the road to look at the speedo, I rolled off the throttle, let the chassis settle and saw the speedo diving past 155mph.

"M" on 75 in my old Comanche, the needle was wrapped around to the M in mph, the guy in the Cobra Mustang I was racing looked confused.

Mine was an 07. It got stolen though. You sure re mapping will remove the limiter? A timing retard eliminator (Called a "TRE" by everyone online) will remove the limiter, the cheapest one is $15. It just tells the computer its in 5th gear and not 6th since it only limit the speed in 6th.

139 on 23 between Ann Arbor and Milan in my '98 5.9 ZJ. It was speed limited at 139 and still had more. I don't think I would have gone much further though. It was starting to float the suspension...

110-ish on a 71 Triumph 650 Trophy (until I realized I didn't know how old the tires were and backed off)
146 in an 85 Chrysler Laser Turbo
130 on the 89 FLHT, windshield bends back pretty far at that speed.
150 in a big block 76 cordoba that was no longer stock


All on 696, except the FLHT, that was on 96 west of Grand Rapids

110 in Renegade II's 442, on a residential street in Saginaw Township. 120 something in my '72 455 Pontiac Ventura, on Tittabawasee, when it was two lane, between Center and Lawndale. Passed 19 cars. It's a wonder I lived past youth. :miff:
