I took my car towards the upper numbers the other numbers the other day - (in a perfectly safe location I add) I was grinning from ear to ear with the pick up from 80 and up...

What's the max anyone has got out of their cars? and is there a track anywhere with a decent straight I can get to the red line on (yes I know my car corners but am interested in what my top end is in case I ever get to drive it in Germany etc!

Doesn't look like there is the gearing left to go much faster.

There is if you have an 8250 RPM redline.

If you cover the whole car in AstroGlide, you can make up for the hood scoop drag.

... I still can't get used to "UTI" being a school. I hear "UTI" and think "Urinary Tract Infection." A.K.A. "you should've gone to the bathroom after having sex, you dumb whore."

I learned how to get away from cops taking radar on motorcycles when I went there. High speed chases are fun when you get away.
