i'm not surprised you were late if you were only going at 8mph.

Re: max speed in ur car?

Human being can sustain 18ish mph if in really good shape (translates to a little less than a 4 minute mile).

87 trans am 140mph
95 grand am gt 130mph and it started getting very light in the front
91 suzuki gsxr1100 somewhere around 165
00 camaro ss so far 150

Finding a track to play on with a nice long straight isn't all that easy, around here you have to be a member of scca to get time on most of the ovals.

i never believe anything you say about your car after looking through your CarDomain page.

i've never seen an ex-race car (of which i've seen many) that has the enitre stock enterior, no roll-cage, no race seats and no harnesses.

apart from that, the car in the magazine article is not your car, it has different wheels, a different spoiler, and the engine bay is different too.

and on top of that, visually there's nothing to suggest that your car makes the "530bhp" you claim it does. i'd be quite amazed if your car could break 150, let alone 180.

Re: max speed in ur car?

Damn the mags and the face lift gave it away lol
Is there anyone who thinks the same as this guy. I can hit 100+ MPH in second gear (6 speed) from a launch detuned on pump gas 15psi down from race 20psi, now you do the math, my car also has a top speed of 193mph FYI...........

Oh I still have those mags from the magazine at home if you want a pic

The engine bay isn't any different to the mag apart from the BOV (which i replaced) K&N catch can and samco joins (which I also replaced)

Bloody num nutts

Re: max speed in ur car?

I'm on the fence on this one. 100+mph in second gear is kinda tough to believe. Whatcha got for gear ratios? I'm thinking second would have to be a bit tall to hit that speed. I get 80 out of the camaro, and that's pushing it hard.

You know, if you were in NZ I would challenge you to a race, but people like you would either run away, turn up in their mums car, or both............

Re: max speed in ur car?

according to the magazine article, the car has a 6-speed gearbox.

Getrag don't make a front transverse 6-speed gearbox for all-wheel-drive.

they only make a 5-speed for that spec, and it's rated to take 320Nm, or 236lb/ft. and if "your" 3000GT was making "530bhp" i think it would be making a little more than 236lb/ft.

it doesn't fit, does it?
