Default Top Speed Run

Being in Germany allows me to be able to easily test my top speed. Here is a video I took last night. (memory card issues cut the video short, but you can still see the speed.)

Did it top out at 148 or is that the fastest you could go without hitting another car?

Was the car bucking or was it stable? I ask because I know someone who was up to 138mph in a 2005 EVO VIII and didn't dare go any faster because the car was becoming quite unstable. Same person had a G35 coupe up to 140mph on the same road and it was smooth as glass.

I stopped since there was a group of oversized semis further up the road (cant really see them in the vid) and I wanted to slow down well before i caught up with them. The car was glued to the road at that speed. I have a BMW 3 series that gets real light at about 110 but the STI handled well.

I wish I had a GPS when I was doing a top speed pull when I was in Germany. my speedo only went to 140 MPH and I buried that needle. I miss Germany and their no speed limits.

I had the needle buried past 140 as far as it would go and bouncing up and down in my bugeye with a rotated 30r kit on E85 back in the day when I was in, ah, Germany..... With the 30r it hit the 140 mark surprisingly fast.

Car was handling the speed very well really and all it had was rims and eibach lowering springs. I think alot of it depends on how flat the road is your on, some roads that seem flat at 55-60 become alot more "wavy" at higher speeds. Slowing down from that speed was another story, seemed to take way too long to slow it down, no brembos tho so I suppose thats par for the course. I kept telling my wife, look at the needle bouncing but she was so in awe (or scared) about how fast things were flying by she could hardly take her eyes off the road to look at the speedo. I am pretty sure I shifted into 6th with the 07 6mt on that run, that was quite a awhile back tho cant remember.

I miss the autobahn. The stretch from Spang to Wittlich, good lord. Italy is ok so far but haven't had a chance to stretch the Sti out here since I'm still breaking it in.

Don't lift next time until fuel cut.
The trucks are used to being passed they won't drift into your lane.
What car were you driving?
