<font color='#000000'>Whats the fastest you people have gone in your ride?
I took my 03 GTS up to 120mph the day I got my license plates.  I was riding home on the NJ Turnpike and I had a wide open lane so i was like.. eh why not?  I gunned it but eventually had to slow down because there were too many cars around.</font>

<font color='#000000'>115MPH.  I was following a Corvette down the highway.  He had a Radar alarm and jammer and told me to follow him.  I may have been able to go faster, but we ran into traffic and had to slow down.

I used to work at a Toyota/Lexus/BMW/Porsche dealership, and I got up to 165 in a 996 turbo before I hit the curves.  That was not my personal ride though, so it probably doesn't count.</font>

Are you sure about that? I've had it past 140 thanks to a steep hill. And was shy at 145, the engine was REALLY stressing in the rpm range though, but it was all engine and nothing being shot in. I was thinking to use a full bottle to give it that extra kick while in 130, then I should easily hit 150mph.. But its raining today and also tomorrow so I can't try it yet...Maybe its a sign!  :laugh:</font>

<font color='#810541'>Going down 95  from Myrtle Beach, S.C. to Jacksonville, Fl. , i`ve done 120mph. in my 92 GT/w auto.  The trip itself usually takes 5 hours.....but i`ve done it 3. A good excuse that I used to use (when I was still in the navy) whenever I got pulled by a cop for speeding..... I`d just tell them that my ship just did a recall, and that I had to get my butt back ASAP!!! They always let me go!  :cool:</font>

<font color='#000000'>It was around 1 in the morning and I had just left my gf house feelin' on top of the world.  Heading east before the transition to the 202 towards scottsdale (home) I saw a pack of 6 Guys on Crotch-rockets.  I was crusin at a cool 70 (the speed limit was 55) But I knew if I wanted to catch up to them I was going to have to speed up.  I dropped it into fourth and slowly creped up without looking obvious like I wanted to race... I mean come on, these are 180mph + bikes, I knew I had no chance.  By the time I caught up to them we were doing close to 90 (on a 55).  I had the top down so they could see I was Eye Ballin' the chick on the back.  The guy on the bike got alittle pissed off so he sped up and so did the rest of them.  Sitting back for a second I decided to take my car to the limit, but knowing there was no chance I could ever beat anyone of the speed junkies.  I filipped it back in to fourth and waited almost till red line and jumped into 5th.  They saw I was closing the gap and allowed to met up with them again, staring at the chick on the back once more, the driver motioned his hand over to the right and 2 seconds later 3 of the six bikes were on my right side, at this point were dodging through cars at 118mph (knowing that if a cop happen to get on the fwy and see all of us pass by... Guess who would be the one to get popped???  At the moment I did care, I was racing with 6 bikes doing 115+.  After traffic was long gone and nothing but open road was ahead, each bike took off as if I was standing still, and they did it just to let me know I never had a chance.  At that moment, I had the biggest adrinaline rush in my life.</font>
