    nope. its all about aerodynamic drag that slows the car down alot.

    oh, sure, but you have to be in the right rpm range up there to hold up against the windforce. but at 150 the car was accelerating still well, i just stopped due to my tire rating.

    all tire rating means.. is that you can go that fast for 24hrs non-stop before the tire will explode..

    example... y-rated 172.. means you can go that fast for a 24hr period non stop before the tire will explode..

    ok, to me it's just too risky going 260 or 270 km/h with a v rated tire (240 km/h). friend of me blew a tire at that speed, not recommended!

    its always a risk going that fast.. its a chance you take when you are going that fast.. if you blow a tire going that fast good luck on still being alive or your car still in good cond..

    going fast means you have to maintain your gear in good condition: brakes, tires (tire pressure!!!!), suspension etc. with performance cars like ours comes a certain responsability. and it's one thing to put yourself at risk, but make sure you endanger no others.
    having said that - it's sooo much fun to hit the throttle!!!!!!!

    Don't need it to tell when you get to the limiter.

    I hit 150 coming home last night with relative ease. Dont want to go any faster for now, b/c I wont know how fast I'm going. Need to get one of those 200MPH faces.

    Get a GPS navigator. It will tell you how fast you are going, if it will read that high. I just got one and found out at 60 indicated the GPS says I am doing 61. So, that means when I said earlier that I got to 143, maybe it was 145. How many of us have checked our speedometer for accuracy?

    I have buried the speedo in my 02 SS. Have gone over 170 on my ZX11. Tons of fun. I wish I could do it all the time.
