Smile Fastest you've ever been in your TL or other car

Whats the fastest, you've been in your TL? or other car? I took my TL(non type S) to 98mph the other day(feels very stable, and able to go an extra 40mph!!), with only 2kmiles on it I did 107mph in my 2000 cavalier Z24, on a trip down south! Its a funny story actually, I drove with my mom as the passenger, and the car was LOADED with luggage! When we got to tennesse and hit those hills and valleys, I looked at the speed and it read 107! The only reason It happened was because I was going down hill at 80mph steady, and I guess gravity did the rest, because I didn't give it more gass, and the thing Was hitting the fuel cut-off!

The fastest I've gone in my ('01) TL is 110mph and she wasn't even breaking a sweat. She was steady and planted.

With other cars:

125mph in my '93 Vigor. I was driving on a lonely stretch of highway between Chicago and Champaign, IL. I was basically the only car on the road and figured I'd see how fast I could go. I previously hit 110mph a few times. It was summer and I had the A/C on. I got up to 120 and she was running out of breath. Flipped off the A/C and got it up to 125mph before I chickened out and let up. Didn't want to get caught for "felony" speeding. I don't think it had much more in her since I think the Vigors were electronically limited to 130. The car was steady though without a hint of vibrations.

125mph in my wife's previous ('93) MX-6 LS V6. That car was fun to drive and was pretty quick in it's day. She felt like she could have pulled up to it's 145 mph governor with no problems. I did it on my way up to Wisconsin (I-94). The car felt like it was glued to the road. In hindsight it was pretty foolish since that strectch of road always has cops.

Hit the limiter on '90 Blazer at 110. The POS was shaking like crazy!

I buried the speedometer in my old '78 Impala several times, but I don't know how fast I was really going since the speedo only registered up to 85mph. That was more of an experience with the typical floaty ride and numb steering of those '70s boats.

Don't do that too much anymore. A family tends to make you realize you're not invincible.

Let's see...

2002 TL-S --> 115mph
1993 300ZX 2+2 --> 150mph (my old car, now dad's car)
1993 Miata --> 120mph (my car before the Z)
1969 Chevelle --> 100mph (scariest thing possible!)
1993 Pathfinder --> 110 mph (my mother's...very stable surprisingly)

2000 TL - had it two weeks - 110mph. It is amazing how stable it feels at that speed and how quiet. Had my 99 GTP to 120, but it didn't feel as stable and was not nearly as quiet. 94 Dodge Ram 4x2 reg cab short box - 100mph - not much fun.

I did 220kph(speedometer reading) in my brother's 330Ci effortlessly, too bad it's governed

then I did about 150kph in my TL-S because it's only a week old, but I feel a lot more confident in the BMW, so hopefully this will change soon after I drop the car :p

130 mph I could of buried the odometer but I thought the cars stock michys were gonna explode. I think anything more than 110 in our cars is scary.

what's the cutoff for both tl-p and tl-s?

i did 181 or 182kph and would've kept going but i ran out of road (we don't have many highways here in canada...i was driving along a rare small stretch of highway that connects the university to a major city street)

but i think i better wait till i get bigger tires 1st before i attempt it again altho i was surprised by the smooth ride with stock tires.

Did 143 MPH in my 1994 25th anniversary Mustang Cobra (Woodhaven Road for anyone from Philadelphia)

I can remember 127 MPH in my 99 TL-Navi

Somewhere around 70 in my 2003-TLS Navi (It is only 2.5 weeks old and no VTEC yet)

128 in my old '88 CRX Si (yellow) on the NE extension going up to Lehigh Univ

140+ in a friend's mom's 1976 Mercedes 4-Door Sedan (don't remember the model) when I was in High School. We were driving down Route 130 in Cinnaminson NJ.

In the TL-S I've been up to 120 on a open stretch of I-95.

The fastest I ever drove was 134 in my 1994 Firebird Fomula.

It was !

110 on a TL-P


Have you guys seen the video this guy made in his Ferrari(?) where he clocked 320 mph (?). He made the video and sold it to several people including an undercover officer and got arrested. The video is constantly featured on Scariest Police Chases.

You must mean kph. The only cars I know of that go 320 mph are top fuel dragsters.

in TO there's no problem for going up to 90mph on a the hwy...all the way...

sometimes i hit 105 when i am in hurry...

last time i was driving my buick from TO to london...1.5 hr drive...
i was at least 90-100 all the way and went 107 for a while

cops didn't bother at all..most cars were going at 90 at least...

I'm such a wimp. The fastest I've ever gone was in my TL, was around 100 mph on a lonely stretch of interstate that's never seen a patrolman. I'm too scared to go much faster, I'll try it on a track to go faster.

I thought I knew where the damn cops are as well, since I've been here for 8 years, but no

I got caught speeding in my old Chrysler (I won't tell you the speed I was doing of course :p ), and I got a fat ticket that costed me $430 or something...

I took my TL to 140, racing a Prelude on an empty freeway. I was ahead the whole time, but from 130-140 the Prelude went from his front bumper at my rear passenger door to his rear bumper at my front bumper!
