    I-55 southeast La. 168 mph on the gps, Lots of noise, no viibrations. Louisiana has it's own autobahn. Speed Rated tires and lowered 1.5". The T-tops aren't made to do this. I'm suprised they didn't crack !!

    That's why you take them off, so you can't hear the vibrations

    When I was running the Autobahn my vibration came from wheel bearings starting to go from the high speed all the time. my .02 cents...

    there are too many possible sources of vibration, unbalanced wheels, tires running uneven, bearings, unbalanced driveshaft, etc.
    the tires on my girlfriends explorer produce a strong vibration at speeds over 60mph, 'cos they're just not round.

    i spanked a new mazda today coming home from work doing 140+. i did notice any problems with the tops. has anyone really had anyproblems with their tops? i figured that if you have them out and windows down it would create more drag.

    Im also curious how much a strut tower brace would help at higher speeds.

    I know its not exactly a performance piece, but i know at normal speeds it helps me out a lot

    from all i've read the weak point of our cars is the midsection, that's why sfcs make such a big difference. above the K-member the car is already pretty solid.
    having that said, anything that stiffens the frame helps.


    and about buying a german car: yes, they are better at high speeds. but even a lexus ls-430 is totally quiet at 130mph. that's why i drive my camaro, because it's loud !!!

    Just enlist in the Army, with a guarantee assignment to Germany. You get to keep your body parts, get paid, and get to go to Germany for 2-3 yrs.









    Disclaimer: you may also have to go to other places as well.......
