Default How fast

Just wanted to know how fast any one has gone in their WRX? On the highway. I reached 120 in 4th gear.

I think it's actually 130mph... on a 4EAT. Those of us with the 5-speed can run right on up to the rev-limiter. Let's not worry about how I know this...

BTW, this is my first post in the local AK-chapter. I'm the guy from Kenai with the big f'in gouge in the side of his pretty blue car. Just thought I'd introduce myself...

I've only been up to 110 between Bird and Girdwood but I understand that Jake was at 142 or 144 on the way to Nenana last year.

BTW, how accurate is the speedo in the WRX anyway? I can't imagine that it's good after about 100?

On my way back from Chugiak I hit 140. Though about going in between the two cars in front of me, but then though "Oh wait, I don't want to scratch the car ..." Oh yeah, didn't want to die either.

I don't know how fast my OBS goes -- not fast enough ;-) I think I may have hit 100, but I haven't really pushed it. Need to get that puppy turbo'd.

I will say that I sustained 115 MPH in my 1975 Scout II back in New Mexico for about 1 1/2 hours. Wasn't a good idea, though. I had to have all the spark plugs and cables replaced afterwards, and I believe the distributor, too, although it was already on the way out. Not bad for a 6300 lb hunk of steel.
