    1/4 ain't sane??
    You are on a track with safety crews.

    Don't get me wrong, I like to feel the car throw me back. But on the street I stay tame for the most part.
    I have ran cars on the street though. Doesn't happen often. And it sure as hell isn't anything above 120MPH.
    And there is NO traffic around. Period. The one place is almost like a closed course.


    Been stupid before though. Sometimes you just keep going on the highway....but I still don't believe I have had my car over 130MPH.

    124 MPH takes me about 12 seconds to get to.
    I am happy with that.

    I'm getting "w" or "y" rated tires soon, then let's see what the baby's got.
    (I'm hoping on 170+ mph...)

    They are governed at 159MPH, but they wont stop until the 170's. Depending on the HP and TQ of the engine. I think that my T/A can touch the 180's given a long enough road. 386HP and 373TQ with 3.73 gears, and a 7000RPM redline. I think that I can touch it. Not too much faster though.

    The cam that I have starts dropping off at 6700RPM, and is long dead by 7000. You are right though, constant 7K, not a good idea.

    well, i know stock C5 corvettes run 300 km/h here, almost 190 mph. also, i have 2.73 gears wich give me more headroom and took the top speed limiter out (hpp3). 150 mph is roughly 4000 - 4400 rpm.

    The lower gears will make it harder to get to a higher top speed.
    With 4.11's my theoretical top speed is still well over 200MPH.

    DJ...stock block LS1 (no stock car) should be able to see 170MPH.

    i dont know man..its aerodynamic drag. and it takes alot of hp and torque to get just a few miles faster. i'd say you'd get high 170's
