    Had mine buried for a solid 2 min on a desserted stretch of road. Pulled the entire time. I would estimate I must have been doing at least 170. This was back when the shocks and springs and such were in much better shape. I wouldn't do it again unless I dropped it and upgraded the susp.

    My understanding is that the car is governed at 155mph with z rated tires. My car has Goodyear F1s. I have seen 150 mph on the speedometer. That was as fast I as I had the nerve to go.

    In my current 00 SS I've hit 145 or so, I drove the car from Texas to CT and the very first time I hammered on it I was impressed that it only shifted into OD at 130 and still pulled hard to 145 but then ran out of clear road. In my 93 LT1 A4 I buried the speedo easily! Honestly almost a little easier than the LS1 but I've never had my car checked for gears and had no history on it prior, I bought it as a repo in late 02.

    I've taken a few f-bodies ('79 Z28, '79 T/A, '76 T/A, '01 T/A) to the 140-145mph mark and used to think it was fun. Then I was able to run my ZX9r to 170, run the ZX9r to 140/150mph all the time and it's MUCH more confidence inspiring than taking the car to triple digits. Stinking cars are heavy and way scary trying to scrub off all that speed.

    Been up to about 165 the weekend I bought it... T-tops off, windows up... Didn't realize I was going that fast till the governer kicked in... was a lil freaked at that point..... Have hit just under 140 in my TBSS.... Much scarier, as it's a 5000 lb suv....

    no z is 145+ that's why I let off at 140 when I was trying to see how my car would pull at high speeds. doing more than that on z rated tires is so fucking stupid it's not even funny. I have heard horror stories of z-rated tires coming apart at high speeds. I have h rated right now and I haven't tried any more than 110 on them. they don't feel like they could handle much more. remember: the top of your tires is accelerating twice as fast as your car is. and going twice as fast too. so remember that when you are doing 160+ your tire is doing 320+ so think about it more
