had a little incident last night. had friend with me in the car....breaking in tranny. This Neon kept on bugging me. I am on Bypass 20 up here in Rockford...heading toward the 2 Dixon exit. We started playing around..and one thing led to another...we were soon going 95. I didnt thinking anything of it till the cop we just past shut his car door.

I look back in the mirror..see the lights. I took my friends advice. I floored it. Bypass 20 is sumwhat flat...with long turns....able to take at triple digits. I am at 120....then 130...then 140. My friend is laughing.....tells me those squad cars can do 136. I see my HUD say 148.......I LET off after that. we didnt pass any other people except for the cop. We get off on his exit, do a slow role...look left and right and then turn left. We got back to his house in one piece.

How fast has everyone gone in there GTP's? This was the fastest for me....I dont plan on doing it again. :unsure: The tranny temp got up to 160 when I was pulling into his driveway....and the motor was at normal temp....right on as a matter of fact. I was shocked that it handled it. I dont bash on my car at ALL, but I had to last night. :(

Tranny temp at 160....so....its normal operation temp is 185 :p


Ive gone to 130, because that was what my tires were rated at....not risking a blowout at that speed. But i just got some V-rated tires when winter hit, so we will see.....

I never have an opportunity to go for LSR's, I'm lucky to get to the speed limit in my commute. Had my bike up to (an indicated) 200mph once going out to Byron. I'd estimate given enough road the GTP would top out around 155-160.

In the GTP: 140 going southbound on I-55 to normal. Had to brake for an exit and when i came to a stop the rear rotors were on fire, needless to say i changed those out stat.

In the GA: 123, had more but i decided i was pushing my luck on a state road. Suprisingly the GA handled great at that speed for a smaller car, however it does have Z rated KDWS tires

The cop told me 115 but you already know that story...

I've done the "run from the cop" thing a couple of times, a long, long long time ago.

It does have more in it. i topped out at 156 mph on a upper peninsula michigan back road. Headers, PCM, 3.4 pulley. It took like 30 seconds to go from 152 to 154, then about a minute to make up to 156. I probably could have touched 160, but i was content enough. When the car finally shifts into 4th gear it is nearly impossible to pick up speed.


So i have it right now in the GTP at 156. Bikes arent fair :)

Im pretty sure pictor topped 160, but i cant remember correctly.

Oh and this was on equivalents of RSA's. so iwas, what, 25 mph or so above the rated speed for about 2 minutes... NOT a smart idea for those that wish to try this out. The tires are rated a 129 IIRC for 1 hour, but past that speed the times for failure are supposed to drop VERY quickly. So dotn be stupid. Dont do this around people, and have good tires.

Oh, and it takes FOREVER to safely stop from that speed. if you see someone down the road 1 mile away you arent stopping in time...
