    167 in a Porche.

    154 in my Chevelle. It had some more but the front end started lifting off the ground.

    I've had my Blazer up to 115 when it was still low and had the small block.

    105 on my bike. No helmut. I don't know what I was thinking. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif In a car, somewhere around 120-125. I was an idiot.

    150-ish in a friends '89 Formula Firebird modded with a chip and Flowmasters, at 2:00 in the morning. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    120-ish in my old station wagon.....a '76 Grand Safari 4 door with a 455 Pontiac and TH400 tranny. Stock car, scary handling at that fast. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Hit 100-ish lots of times with various trucks I've owned in the past. No big deal with trucks it seems like. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Not that fast but the acceleration was mind blowing. from 60 - 130, power sliding, faster than you can pinch a loaf.

    Supra dyno'd at 785 without the Nitrous. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I was 17 at the time............

    Here's what it was like. At about 80, the car starts shaking somewhat akin to the space shuttle on reentry. Then at about 90 to 95, everything settles down and it becomes quiet, well expect for the engine. After that run, that car would never get up above 105. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Smart Man! Don't go any faster than you would want to hit something solid at. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif That's why I picked 240 mph. At that speed I wouldn't feel a thing... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
