sigh...ur right, i bet if u really wanted to u could get the car to mach one....but just as long as its ur car huh?

With a stock escort?? has anyone else got to 140...considering the SPEEDOMETER doesnt even GO TO 140? I know i havent, i know that no one else i know that has one has...but u, urs might have been a prototype for a new jet car. Well thats cool, u should try to become a driver for a land speed car. Cuz i´m sure if u got in it, u´d automatically get it to go 20mph faster than everyone else.

Wake up, ur wrong, its just not possible with stock.....u tried to bs ur way in the forum and u got caught....its just not possible w/ stock. I´d bet an easy 500 bucks on it. so come to columbus ohio and i´ll lay my money on ur hood and call u out.

before you say I´m wrong maybe you should come for a ride...I never said my car was stock...I have not opend the engine or tranny on it though...but having said that my car would go past the 120 even when it was stock...just because the speedo says something does not mean it is so...my first GT was a 1 gen and the speedo said 85...does that mean that that is the top speed it could go? just because you cannot convince your car to get upand go does not mean I am wrong....come on over I´ll take you out there and show you in my car where and how I did it....tell ya what you are the one calling the BS bring your happy self on down here and put your money where your running mouth is...prove me wrong....I´m waiting....c´mon down....as for the speed of 140 that is an estimation based on the info previosly posted...there is no need to get hateful just because you "think" I´m wrong....I am not the type of person to state a bunch of BS here just to hear myself go on...

haha, see that wasnt the point...i know cars can generally go past their speedo...my poijnt is...u have a stock speedo...therefore U DONT KNOW FOR SURE THAT U WERE AT 140. for all u know, u could have been at 127 and just assumed that since ur car was redlined that u were at 140.

i wish i could call my roomate, however i´m a connection specialist for bellsouth internet service, so i´m already on the phones lol...ne one in the bellsouth region have internet access with us?

Not to take sides or anything but I had a friend with an 88 Dodge Dynasty with a V6 (one cyl was clogged though), with a speedo that went to 85, he caught up to my other friends Taurus at 115 mph in his Dynasty so I´m sure the speedo doesn´t mean that top speed is set in stone.

and if you read what I said earlier in the posts I based it upon the characteristics of how many rpms I turn at various speeds...now I can be fairly assured that my clutch is not slipping I have installed a new centerforce dual friction and I think that after owning the car for eight years I would know the characteristics by now....unfortunately the only way to get an exact on the speed with my limited resources would land me in jail and most likely lose my license for quite awhile I´m sure...I really wish we could actually meet up within the next month before I start tearing the car apart....I have many plans for this car and even though you may call my current estimation bs...it will not stop the future....but suffice to say, when I get done 140 will not be hard for it as I will be regearing the tranny and final drive to make this happen....Bell South eh...I´m with Southwestern Bell...or as it comes now SBC....I didn´t know that Bell South reached that far up north...firgured it would be Bell Atlantic...well if that is still a separate company...I do not keep up with the mergers and buyouts much....n e way...have fun at work....

I hope most of you realize that, damn near all speedos are only accurate to 70 mph, i am not saying you didnt go 140 i am just saying that most speedos are not accurate over 70.

well like I said, ya never know unless you´re there...with all the mergers and buy outs...I got a question though...do you ever get any of those crazy tech questions...like the one about where someone calls in talking about their cup holder being broken on their pc......I aways see the jokes about those weird tech line calls, but was curious
