Re: The Fastest you've driven?

The fasest ive gone was in the passenger seat of my cousins old formula 400 firebird. It had a bored and storked 406 bb from his dads race car and we only ever took it up to 160 we both pussed out b/c it wasnt running out of speed and the front end was starting to come up. My idiot cousin blew that motor up a month later so well never know how fast that old car could go. That thing would have made a hell of a drift car if u barely pushed the gas it could break the tires loose.

Re: The Fastest you've driven?

I drove the Diablo VT from my ex-boss 6 years ago. Love that car! How many are 270 km/h in mph? I wouldn't drive faster. This speed was amazing!! Greetz

Re: The Fastest you've driven?

Porsche 997 Turbo, In Catalugna Spain on a private test track, a high speed Oval, 185 mph.

The greatest feeling is when you reach the banks at full speed and the car just sticks to the asphalt with just a little bit of dial in the steering.

One of the best thrills I had.

Re: The Fastest you've driven?

125 mph in my old 1989 Toyota Camry V6 LE. Bought the car at some crappy no-name dealership for $1400 CAD all-in, and loved that old crap box. Because it had zero safety features, it weighed as much as a shoe, and the little 2.5L DOHC could move that sucker. I'm sure it was more a seat-of-the-pants feel because the suspension was gone, but it was fun nonetheless. Raced my friend in a '94 Pontiac Grand Prix SE V6 3.1L, the old Toyota pulled ahead...slowly, but surely.
