    know the feeling running from da law....whew...and getting away..well not the second time lol

    See, that' the awesome thing about living in Germany. Perfectly legal to go fast (when there's no speedlimit, of course...). 150 two days ago, more than 130 on a regular basis. But it gets old pretty quick, so my cruising speed is usually around 100 to 110 mph (on cruise controle, lol).
    I actually like the US situation with the 70 mph speed limit, cause it evens out the traffic flow. Over here, driving is really hectic with people driving between 50 and 150 or more on the same road, people are getting scared of changing lanes and the like... Would miss going fast from time to time though...

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?

    So far so well, but the most time the fucking Mercedes and BMW driver give you the left lane free. Somtime i wish i have a Bazooka to blow them away

    That would be the official topspeed that's in my german papers for the Z28. OEM topspeedlimiter threshold also. But they're supposed to go 175+ with no limiter! So don't stop trying!!!

    I am doing 402 LS2 forged stroker block swap, so I guess my top speed would go way up 190-200mi?

    you guys see my post a few weeks ago 0-130 its still on anything goes somewhere! that was in less than a mile like someone said do the math if my car can run 112 in a quarter you should top it out within the next quarter mile there is only one gear left. (automatic trans) we run the the toll way and when we leave the toll booth trac the mph by the time you get to the end of the barricade wall.

    Oh I know. I did hit the limiter and I though that I broke something. Since then I have added nearly 120HP and 120TQ to it. It will do 140 with no problem. I have removed all of those nasty governors, and moved the RPM up to 7000. Elimated that pesky skip shift. I hated that thing. And put in 3.73 gears. She should be able to do nearly 190mph now....tires permitting.

    I still have my 2.73 rear end, cos I like low revs when I go fast and I don't drag race (it's not so popular over here). Got a 3" catback, K+N filter and HPP, although it's more for the tranny adjusting and such.. Plan to get a lid, too. Otherwise my car's pretty much stock.
    I'm running V tires now, but I'll get faster ones in spring (and a little wider, 255 or 265). Then we'll see...

    My best was on I-69 in Michigan, nailed 148 in my '93 Z before I came up on some traffic and had to drop to 1/2 that fast. Great time, want another chance at that adrenaline rush!

    I have the 6 speed, and when I put in the 3.73 gears, I noticed only about a 300RPM change when I was at 75mph. Plus I got up there a lot quicker. But its all up to you man.

    Just 300 rpm? I thought it would have been more... Well, since I just got'em redone I'll stick to them for now. Also, it's a different thing here, I go 100 mph over long distances. And gas mileage is really an issue here!

    Yeah, I bet. The government taxes the shit out of it, doesn't it? Prices have been falling here the last few weeks, some places are selling 87 octane for $1.899. My Marathon around the corner (and Shell) sell their 93 octane for $2.259 currently. How much is gas in Germany? I get 26.5-27.5 MPG at 75 MPH cruise, what is your MPG when cruising 110-120? 21?
