What's everyone's top speed here

i tested out and i hit 195 KMP but i had to slow down, i think it could have gone faster.

195 KMP = 121 MPH

113 but I haven't tested it since I cut the blue wire. I know someone on that buried the needle after they cut the blue wire. Speedo on 3gens ends at 120. They had to be doing at least 125.

Personal best: 110 mph, just before I got my one and only speeding ticket for doing 90 in a 70. Hey, I had been driving for 15.5 hours straight at that point, I just wanted to get to bed!

Does it have to be in an Escort? if not, then 162.8 mph through the traps. (68 charger 440, nitrous... you get the idea) otherwise, 7,000 rpm in 5th in my 94gt. dunno how fast, the numbers don't go that far. Gets a little loose that fast.

The best I've done in the scort is about 110mph (it may have been 100, I don't completely remember.) This was in 4th gear with a "little" room to move and one more gear. I'm thinking my GT might get up there near 120-125 but I've never done it.

For non escorts I've done about 400mph (or there abouts) in a Boeing 757... :lol: :lol:

Me and a friend were goin' down a long straight (he was in his SHO) and he paced me doing 129. It took a while to get there.. 'Twas very scary.. had the spoiler off, and all of the underbody plastic removed.

I topped mine out at 118 (on the speedo), but that was before i did any mods to it. Even though I haven't done much, I bet I can get up to 125 because of the muffler alone. Also, just because it says 118 on the speedo doesn't mean anything. Once you get above a certain speed, your speedometer can't really keep up and can be off anywhere from 5 to 20 mph's.

my 91 EGT runs quickly up to about 107. It goes up to about 112 but takes it forever to gain speed after 105-7. It only had intake but headers arrive on tues!.....i'm stoked. It cruises at 95+ though. it shakes a little from 80-90 but then settles down and drives amazingly smooth after 90. Who knows why but it does. I love living in the country. nothing but long open roads w/ no people or police. It's almost like living in a tarmac rally stage.

Back in the day I bought a '91 Protege LX new. I remember all of the car magazines used to say they would do 130 in 4th gear (5th is too tall to go any faster). That was one thing that got me to buy the car. Wow 130 mph from 125 hp- whooo hoooo.

I wish I still had that car...

Escort GT's top speed is about 120. I cant see it going any faster than
that. :eek:

As far as my 95 gt goes...it pulls strong throughout the entire band...It doesnt really slack off after 80-90-or even a 100...I have tried to get an exact speed but apparently my speedo is way off because I can peg out the needle and still have more vroom vroom left...but I have yet to get a ticket for a faulty speedo....Kinda makes me wonder,hehehe :D

I cannot really tell but I know that I've went to 175 kmp to the max because of the "Govornor" Will try to cut it one day and see what speed i'm going...will be difficult since my speedo is a little weird :p
At 60kmp, it's start gigling :p and when i'm driving at 120 kmp, the idle indicate between 100 and 140 :p
Will try to arrange that one day...too much to repair...too less time!

112 for me but it was in a safety corridor so i know stupid me but hey... Ive also been 111 down the freeway (no cars were around im not that stupid) but i get really nervous because my steering is loose sorta i was told the tie rod ends were bad or someting so it jerks to the right when i let off or then jerks to the left when i get on it so going that fast i dont want my steering to throw me into oncoming traffic or throw me into a ditch.... to much fun :D

I topped my bad boy out at 112 tonight on the freeway...4th gear pegged at 6700 rpm and wouldn't budge. I passed a dark blue cavalier like he was standing still...then I couldn't even see him in my mirrors anymore. :wink:
