Just wondering what you guys have reached as far as top speed? Mine in km's, i've reached 180, i coulda gone farther but came up on my exit. I drive a 93 LS. I had my sunroof open tho, it was pretty insane. Any others?

120mph in my 93 auto 4cyl, then my governor kicked in, i had only had my car like two weeks and didn't even know what a governor was, it scared the crap out of me, so i suppose i can't go any higher than that.

my 95 mx6 ls, 5 spd fully stock and everything i got it up to about 138ish, i should try it again some time, but i want to wait til i finish my exhaust first and get off my 18's before i do it, lol. i've had it up to about 130ish on my 18's, which is actually about 140+ish, cuz at 60 mph im actually doin 68.

The fastest Ive gone is 85, I dont know what my tires are rated so I dont wanna push it too hard until I know nothing will screw up when going fast.

85! normal highway traffic flows at 90 through KC i don't know how you can drive and not have gone over 85, that's crazy

well 240km/h =149 mph.....

but at that point our speedos are inaccurate

@ 230km/h my tach said 6900 rpms....but then again our tachs are off too

top speed also depends on headwind, road grade, weather condition....and how much your valves float at maintained high rpms......

all in all you're lucky to get over 140 (REAL MPH) in an stock mx-6...since most "mods" people put on don't really do anything i'd say you'd maybe hit 141mph....if your speedo says any different its lying to you....


just ask the cop when he pulls you over.

^ If you calculated the gear ratios and stock tire size, at 7k rpm your speed is 151 mph. Accurate speedo or not, I know my tach is accurate, and they both agree anyway.

135ish in the 6, a couple times, with a little bit more to go. Had 2 passengers a couple times as well. I dont think ill be doing that anymore. My 6 is retired from going over 90 mph ever again.

i agree with Chris, my car saw those high speeds in my younger days, i definitley don't go anywhere near that high nowadays, can't afford the tickets or the risk of blowing my car to kingdom come.
