I got my 99 3000gt sl up to 135 mph on just a flat straight country road and my 98 vr4 up to about 143 mph on the same road, i was runnin out of straightaway with the vr4 so i had to quit accelerating, another 30 seconds to a minute and that vr4 would still have been going probably around 155 mph or so.

some have compared the North Dallas Tollway in Dallas, TX to the closest thing in the United States to the Autobahn in Germany. That's where i was able to hit 125, and where anyone could hit 155+...just make sure its aroun 1 or 2am, and there's no one on the road...just a LONG straightaway!

Re: top speed

I've taken mine just on 150mph off road of course and its hairy i can tell you. it was still pulling tho, i'd hate to know what exactly it will do flat out, i would say in the 160's on the guage who knows maybe more. its hard to know how accurate the guages are at that sort of speed.

Re: top speed

I've been up to 155 before in my car, then I slowed down.

Re: top speed

Heh, I plan on getting a very acurate speed reading by puting my handheld GPS up on the dash and runing it up real fast and looking at the max speed I hit to within a tenth of a MPH, I would be intersting to see how far offf the stock speedo is.

Re: top speed

hey im new to 3g gt forum and i drive a 93 honda (poor college kid) but i know enough bout 3g gt to know that they sure as hell can go faster than 120....especially 93PearlVR-4 ...i hope you still had power to go at only 135...you have twin turbos!!! hell my car (accord) is ecu governed at 115....and i can do that in 4th gear....5th just gives me better gas mileage .....the speedometer says 160 or 180 i believe in the 3g gt....doesnt necessarily mean u can top it out depends on the car and if its governed....mine says 130 and i hit 115....and sure you can get a chip to override the governer and the rev limiter..... as for StealthModifier i would take ur car out on a country road and just let the fucker fly. im from the country and there are FEWER cops and find a nice long straight stretch and just open it up. i wonder what people think when they see my accord doin 110 down the hick country road passing mustangs and camaros just to piss them off lol

Re: top speed

Long country roads become very short when trying to get above 150. Just a little FYI for everyone, drag is exponential, and it takes about 2.5 or 3.5, I cant remember, times more power to go 150 than it does to go 100. But you also have to factor gearing into that.

Re: top speed

Ive gone 110 in broad daylight on a sort of busy highway. It wasn't a big deal and i could tell she wasn't about to let up anytime soon.
