I just wanted to find out what my 91gt would do when strung out. I got 104ish mph at about 5300 rpm. I'm assuming that is the govenor, but i'm just wondering if thats what everyone else gets out of thiers. Fresh rubber, i figured it needed to be tested out. And one more thing: how many miles can i expect to get out of my Falken ziex512's? I'm hoping i can get a good 40k miles out of them b4 they won't kick ass. Thanks guys

I would say 25,000 if you are lucky.I had them on my other car and got them rotated regularly and thats all i got out of them.Never raced the car or burnt rubber.Thats why I am trying to sell the ones I got for the escort.

Well my top speed on my old 91 pony you couldnt tell because the speedo stopped at 85mph.On my 96 it was 120 mph.I was young and stupid when I did that.

The Most Ive had my stock LX up to was 112, on stock tires, (i know not a good idea) but it was shakin like a biiiitch, my doors were shakin, the steerin wheel was shimmyin slightly,and when i was switchin lanes and hit an expansion joint, my rear end started to sway.... it couldnt hold the speed going up hill.. dropped down to about 90... i think i was runnin about 4000RPM @112

I've gotten my 95 LX 5spd up to 117mph..... she was shakin a bit.... but hey I'm stock basically... thats expected.. I did feel alittle sluggish after 107mph, took awhile to get all the way up to 117, but then again after a certain point our speedometers are pretty off, and how did you guys know you were going over 120?... using a GPS or something?

140mph, the off duty sheriff was not happy about that..
thats about my same. we have a streach of about 3mile "straight" road out here that we race on. we figured out that the cops arround here are governd at 110. so needless to say we have never been caught. becides.. i fyou drive by someone at 140 they will never catch up to you unless they have a 1 scond 0-180 time.

I have had the t scort up to 125-130, but the 85 stock supsension is not even close to being able to handle that. Last time il ever do that in that car. The fastest I have been is 138 with a gps, but that wasn't the escort.

looks like the mods needa clear that post, apparently we've all stretched the speed limits, but illegal street racing is illegal for a reason, good going... sorry I feel like being a tattle tell... no racing illegally!

I backed off at 100 in my scort when I had the auto 1.9L and bad tire balance. Never saw the need to make a death wish after that. Unless you're on a track, there is nowhere around here to go that fast and not hit something or someone.
