    Good thing crown vics top out @ 132

    I was on my way home from the broads house and I was going about 100mph. I came around a curve and there was a statey. My initial reaction was let off the throttle but i was going 100 and as soon as I cam around the turn he put his lights on. At that point I panicked and mashed the throttle. Mainly because I thought i would lose my lisence for going 45 over the limit. Next thing i knew i had the speedo @ 155. I keep looking in the mirror and the lights are just getting farther and farther away. Luckily I got around a large curve and was coming up on triple split and I went the way i would normally go home and was out of his sight before he came around the curve. So i killed a police interceptor crown vic. Do you think he had his car topped out? Or did he not pursue because of the high speeds? Also the speedo in our cars goes to 155 if you go over 155 will the needle go past 155 or will it stay there. I could have sworn i was still accelerating but the needle wasn't going past 155.

    Depending upon your gear ratio you can go faster than 155 but I have 3.23's and mine is dyno verified at 155ish top end. The 2.73's can go higher but you have to have some decent mods to allow for the motor to rev high enough.


    In either case, I would let ur car lay low for a while. Its not particularly a good thing that you just outran a state patrol car.

    hahahaha thats great . . . i had a buddy in a 96 z try to out run a cop like that on the interstate at like 3 in the morn. he was drunk and said he had her up to 140-150. he said the cop disappeared so my buddy got off an exit. and when he was almost home he saw headlights and cop lights turn on right on his ass. he thinks the cop was followin him with no headlights the whole time . . pretty funny story except he got his license taken away and he had to sell the z lol

    I know the car can go faster than 155. My question was does the speedo stop at 155, or will it go past the 155 mark and keep going. Kind of like when you fill your gas tank and the needle goes past the full mark.

    Anyway I don't know what i was thinking because i normally pull over. But it was 100 in a 55 so i panicked. There was maybe one car i passed the whole time. I did 155 then slowed to 95 at the split and then back up to 155 no problem. I was surprised how well the car handled the whole time.

    I won't be driving my car for a while, it's snowing here now and I won't take it out. I have a POS isuzu trooper for dd. But the brake lights don't light up when you brake so i'm gonna get pulled over in that eventually anyway.

    If you had the power to pull through...your top speed in 4th gear is 209MPH. 3.23's and A4 redlining at 6200RPM's
    2.73 would be 248MPH.


    Of course, you won't EVER see that. Even with all the power in the world in our cars. At least not in a streetable version.

    I wasn't factoring the speed you could hit if there was no drag coefficient.

    Hopefully the state troopers don't have the common sense to check car forums after something like this happens. If they do, it won't be hard to find you. You probably shouldn't be bragging about this.

    well glad nothing serious happened. and I hope you waved at him, last encounter I had I got hit by a laser going 100 in a 50. I drew a blank so I threw him a wave, his facial expression was priceless. I didn't floor it though I just took the next offramp around the bend and went and hung out at the local speed shop for a good half hour. best part was when I finally got back on the highway I passed the same trooper going the opposite direction and all he did is point at me. I love divided highways..

    this thread is too funny. in high school, my buddy out-ran a cop in his z28. so when i was speeding in my 1989 ford tempo (i was doing 60 in what i thought was a 40) and a cop swung a u-turn when i passed so i put the hammer down to make my get away. i know, i know, in a ford tempo!?!i ducked into a housing development and tried to speed away. i probably kept going for about a good minute until he was right on my tail so then i pulled over. he wasnt too happy and asked why i was running. he then searched my car and let me go with a warning.
