    Even scarier with the top of the car in the trunk

    Hit about 130 in the SS and about 145 on the R6. For some reason I would rather be on the bike at those speeds. Feels a little more stable.

    Me too 110 and that was fast enough.

    When I recently got my tune done, the tuner says "I just removed your speed limiter." So I asked what the limit used to be and he said 160. Now seriously, is anyone crazy enough to go over 160 in a convertible?

    I've only had the z28 two weeks and haven't pushed 100 yet. I'm thinking I'll hit the track this time as the police officer suggested. The fastest I've been recorded was 135 mph and this was clocked by the Indianapolis police. My buddy said the 92 Eclipse GSX would not go over 115 mph with his 200+ lbs in the vehicle, but it went strong I have no idea where it would have topped out. I pulled up alongside a Crown Vic with laundry in the back and floored it. To my amazement that car with a lady driver and laundry was on my rear in mere seconds and pulled me over. She quoted me doing 135 and said she'd take me to jail if she wasn't trying to do her laundry. Then she made my buddy drive with only his learners permit. I told her I'd make sure he behaves.

    Did you upgrade or rebuild tranny when switching from LS1 to LS6? If not, then it's going to go out very soon anyway, so you might as well start saving.

    New motor + Old tranny = You walking

    well if its an a4 thats directly related to the air damn missing, the #1 killers of automatic tranny's is being overheated or degrated fluid, due to being overheated, if m6 sorry man, get ready to bend over and just send it to sixspeedsinc.com or something like that.

    also you need to get that damn, whether or not you think your not overheating you may be running hot and that dummy gauge does not read hot till its too late, hope that helps,

    I went about 145 once out west. Mine is a '99 Z28 and was very stable at that speed. Things were going by fast, and there were cars up ahead, so I let off. Didn't want to risk hitting someone in the ass at 145 mph. I had a ways to go before I topped out, too. I'm pretty confident that I'd hit 160+ before I hit the rev limiter.

    2000 SS Black M6

    Ok, this is kind of a top speed question. Ill start by mentioning mines the 3.8 V6, A4, 3.42.

    Ive been told mine will get into the 130's which doesnt sound too unreasonable. 4th gear, 2500 rpms = 75mph, 3200 rpms = 105mph. Just 700 more jumps me 30 mph. But thats where the problems start.

    at about 107mph/3250rpms, my car tries to downshift, whether im on it hard, or just slowly creeping up. I know thats a shift point in the other gears, and from 4th down is the only way it can go, and 105 in 3rd gear is up over 6500 rpms, my motor isnt built for that.

    It pulls really good all the way up past 100, but at 107 it freaks out, its not like a rev limiter or governor, i know what that feels like.

    ok so heres a scenario, im crusing along in 4th, need to speed up so i step on it, when it hits 3200, it downshifts to third, gains some speed then back to fourth. so i think that the computer is getting confused when im just cruising along at 100, rather than 60. its sensing my rpms, but not my speed, and thinks i need to downshift to pull harder.

    Pinned the needle running a '03 Cobra on the 210. We were going up the hill towards Sunland. When I had my '69 Firebird I pinned it twice=160 speedo also.

    I was thinking of how fast I've gone in my Z and realized I have gone faster in a Prius I briefly owned.

    105 in my Z
    106 in the Prius. Yes, they will do over 100. Took a LOOOOONG time and the batteries were pretty much locked in charge mode once we slowed down.
