150 twice for me. No more without suspension, and not on a road. Private airstrip I'll see what it will do with the new mods.

Not sure, but my speedo was tapped out. I guess it's safe to say I was atleast doin 160mph. Haven't done it since. I remember the car felt good and tight, but prolly won't do it again. Not on a public road anyways.

Just to preempt all those speed claims that are speedo based and not GPS verified, your speedometer gets exponentially incorrect the faster you go (at the speeds we are talking about here).

Correct gaunt. But we're basing it off of what we have available...either speedo, or in some proper cases, GPS.

:chug:
Well, for my contribution to the thead, I pegged that little speedo and kept on going lol

Even blew past a few cops on the other side of the North 202 while we were at it. They didn't even flip their lights on :secret2:

I've since changed my ways, so no worries.

Maxed the Camaro out on I-10 for a few miles early in the morning in '05. Had lost a G at the casino and was pissed. Next day I get in my car and the power steering pump was broken. Had to drive like that for months cause I had no money or job, heck my license was suspended lol. Driving an F-body with no power steering sucks, my arms got pretty buff though. Haven't gone that fast or to the casino again.

Maxed the speedo and the RPMS climbed a little more but not much. So about 160-165. That was when I was stock, and a 17 year old dumbass. Haven't gone above about 130 since my mods, but it gets there a LOT quicker.

167 in my SS by GPS a few years ago, coming from a dead stop on a 2 mile-ish strait road racing a Turbo Civic (who lost bad by the way) Missed 4th gear. If I hadn't missed 4th I may have broke 170. This was back in the day with a stock 10 bolt and 3.42 gears, was enjoying my First Head/Cam set up. I think the fastest My SS has been since is around 130, most recently 119.81 in the traps.

My Z28, 130 by GPS. Car was pretty much bone stock, including the air lid.

Other Rides I've had:
06 Silverado Z71: 100-101, factory speed limiter. (still have)
08 Cobalt SS: 110, never really tried to go all out (sold)
08 Cobalt Sport (wifes car): 104, did this catching up to my mom and stepdad after a rest stop.
86 Regal T-Type: around 130-135 according to the EVO I was racing at the time, speedo stops at 85 in that one (sold)
01 GP GTP: 139, Heads Up Display verified (sold)
01 GP GT: 108, factory Limiter (sold)
96 Z28: ~150, wasn't sure the exact (sold)
00 Silverado Z71: 120, limiter was set at 128, but with the 285/75/16 BFG's she had nothing left. (sold)
91 GP SE: 115, first car, fastest I ever went at the time. (sold)

I'm alot more seasoned now and try to keep it under 100 on the roads. Usually only break 100 at the track. Drive mostly like an old man now.

165 in the 99 WS6 once and 120-130 multiple times. Every time I do it though my car is about to break. I hit 130 a week ago and now it vibrates at 90. Then before that my brakes started acting funny. The time before that I broke my torque arm. So yeah lol.

Hit 110 in the SS and nearly lost it slowing down, the brakes and steering were fucked on that car.

Hit 120 in the Chevelle and it was smooth as butter. Then the starter stopped working.

Hit 120 in the 80 ta and the carb threw up. Did it again and the tranny blew. Did it again and the carb fucked up again.

I've lost count how many times I had that speedometer needle buried.:lol: Yeah mine felt good at those speeds stock and felt even better with the Bilstein HD's and SLP SFC's. Not sure why some of you say your car is trying to fall apart at those speeds, you must have something worn out maybe?

140ish in 99T/A let out because the shocks are worn out.
About 150 in a 01 Mustang GT which took a lot longer to get there.

That must have taken FOREVER. I had a bolt-on '01 GT and it took a LONG time to get to 140.

Been 155 in a 1/4 mile but that was a race car. Hit 155 (speedo) in my 97 TA and my 02 TA with bolt ons and cam. Got there alot quicker in the 02. Sold the car 3 weeks later and the guy that bought it in New york tuned it and changed suspension then said he hit 183 GPS on some back roads. He road races the car at watkins glen.

Also did 140 in my G8 GT. That was the smoothest 140 ever to.

148 MPH in my car when it was still stock

155 MPH In a friends 2002 SS

160 MPH in a friends C6

I'd love to beat my top speed in my current car in the quarter this next time around but I don't think thats going to happen.

174.6 GPS verified.

Before the suspension the front end felt really light at 140+ and was kinda spooky..

Broke 140+ 3 times coming back from the beach recently but for some reason the DS window now starts sucking out and makes a terrible noise at those speeds...

Mine too. 140 feels like a rocketship through space, no shaking or anything, just smooth sailing and screaming RPMs.

145 but let off because I was coming up to the top of a hill, which there could have been a cop. It had a lot of pedal to push and this was when I was stock.

Just shy of 150 in the SS had to slow for the exit & the golf that tried racing us(wasn't even racing, just wanted to see how fast we could go) that was bus lengths back! just managed to pass us as we were leaving the exit at about 50ish.

And about 140 in the last 99 T4 Volvo we had, till a truck crushed it.

I ran mine up over 150mph a few times back when I first bought it nearly a decade ago. It's been 5+ years since the car has seen 100+ off the track though.

And I tell you what, right or wrong, when I see most people pay more attention to their cell phone conversations, the radio, their cup of coffee, or the 2.5 kids in the back seats then they do to their driving, I don't really worry about how much danger I may or may not be putting them in.

Years ago I did 140 in my buddies 2001 WS6.
I've only done 120 in my car. New tires and wheels, and good shocks, before I go any faster than that. When I was a teenager I prolly would be typing that I did 155, b/c I have a lot more responsibility and common sense than what I used to have.
