    Just about 147 or so on the interstate during a sunday afternoon between Omaha and Lincoln NE. Got on at an exit ramp, punched it to the floor as I hit
    the end of the curve of the exit ramp. I would say it took much less then a half mile to reach 147, I planned on hitting bottom with my needle. Traffic
    appeared and I had to bail, the came up fast. I do not go much above 25 over the speed limit on a regular day, I would hate to lose my driving rights!

    But I have never backed down from a race, I have lost bad to two different
    rice rockets and beat a H.D. buy about a bike, bike and a half.

    Florida, this past Sept. on our way to St. George's Island, we were on a lonely stretch of very newly paved, straight and no traffic highway. We got up to 142 before I saw an oncoming car. My wife was watching and she said did I see 145? The adrenaline rush afterwards is the best part. When I do something like that, it is daytime, no traffic, and I get up to speed as fast as possible and back down to normal speed almost as quickly. I usually cruise at 8-10 MPH over whatever the limit is and have never been pulled over for speeding doing that.

    Back in the day, car mags were showing top speed for our cars at 155-160. With a 6 speed, top speed was achieved in 5th, not 6th. The car is near 5400 at 155, so it is in the best power RPM to achieve top speed. 6th is for gas mileage. I don't know about cars with 4.10 gears, I guess the top speed would be around the same with no other mods done to the car. You would run out of RPM in 5th and 6th might still not be in the power yet. A4 cars with the 3.73 gears might go low 160s, in OD. Anybody else have input?

    wouldn't the top speed get lower if running 3.73 vs 3.23?

What I go, 150 mph over a long time, is very rare and I drive it only when the highway is not full of cars!A high different speed between cars is dangerous!We in Germany must pass other cars only on the left side and when it enough room for driving we must go to the right side of the road.You in US so I know, can pass other cars left and right, so this is dangerous to.In Germany drive the most cars on the right side so you can go higher speed on the left side and all the other drivers know that!What is the normal speed of your highways in US?

    heh heh, i see you misunderstood my intent. i was being sarcastic because the speed in itself isn't what's dangerous, as proven by the places i named...but i'm sure some of the folks scared of their shadows will benefit from your info

    oh and for the record, it's illegal to pass on the right here as well, but since Americans drive like morons half the time (except us sports car drivers, of course), they do not yield to overtaking vehicles and you end up passing on the right anyway. i personally don't like doing it, but i can only hang off of somebody's back bumoer for so long...

    i went from 3.23s to 3.73s and went from 155 to 162, but the top speed gear moved up to 6th, rather than 5th and it was verified by radar in 2 directions...won't name the place or how the radar was achieved, though, lol, don't wanna get anyone in trouble.
