I can easily hit 100mph in my car and it's still pulling really hard. I doubt I'd want to see what the limitations are though, even on an empty highway. A blow out at that speed could be fatal. Plus, I really just don't trust drag radials at a speed exceeding 120 or so.
    Dont know how true it was but ive heard of back windows being blown out by the force of the wind at crazy high speeds with the windows/T-tops open?--not to mention all of the drag youd be putting on the car.

    Very True...Even in a full caged car with all the head and neck restraints its a hard jolt for sure! But imagine a wreck without it!!.....Look at how our F-bodies crack like egg shells @ a 45 mph hit? Plus like one member said its almost impossible to stop fast at that speed...not to say i still dont do crazy stupid shit i just tend to do it with more caution then when i was a kid!

    Based on my tires, the T56 gear ratio, and my final gear ratio, I can potentially top out in 6th at 237mph
    It's on jackstands.

    nice haha

    here is a video of my roommate from our younger dumber days (I was 19 at the time) when he first got his T/A




    Looking back no a lot of what we did back then was absolutely retarded, used to race his T/A against my moms 300c all the time up to the 300's limiter at 138. Anymore I shut my camaro down after ripping through 1st and 2nd.
