I had my 2003 LE Corolla up to 95 plenty but it's regulated and won't go faster. :P

 

I wish there was some way to get rid of the regulator without risking hurting my car.

It wasn't in a Corolla, but...

 

~100mph (165km/h) in our old '97 Chrysler Intrepid 3.5L V6 on a straight, flat country road, good pavement. 'Would have pulled well past 100 (no speed limiter) but had to back off since some overpasses and traffic were coming up, didn't want to risk passing a cop.

 

I've done 90 a few times in that car as well, and in our 2002 Honda Odyssey, and once in the new Echo (was surprised how well it handled at that speed, although I'm not planning on doing it every day in that little car).

I have a 95 Corolla that I've gotten up to 110 in under 4 miles. 110 is as high as mine registers, but I've seen the pin go past it, so who knows. I also have a couple mods, though. Here is the page for it.

180 km/h on my '97 automatic, on the 401 highway between Toronto and Montreal. Early Saturday summer morning back in '99, sun rising just to the right of the highway, spotted the glint in the windshield of an Ontario Police cruiser nestling in the underpass miles ahead. Brought it back below 120, waved at the officer, then pushed it again.

I drove my stock 2004 corolla S to 170kph (that's about 106mph) out on a highway with some smooth curves. I didn't dare try more. But then again, i don't think the corolla can handle more than that.

I put my 98 over 100 a few times; if you have the pedal floored, it shifts into the last gear at 100. I might have buried the needle, but once I passed 100, I was afraid to look away from the road for any fraction of time. So let's just say I got it to 100+.

 

BTW, I'm the conservative driver out of my group of friends :rolleyes:

Hey, Im in australia... but i did the maths, so MPH isnt a prob

 

i own a new corolla bout 3000 miles on it,

ive got 5 speed manual, and i raced a mate, in the model before mine, in an auto

we were in teh ###### of no where, n i beat him, i hit 160 k's or as u guys know it, the 100 mph mark... was on the level, n as i got to a big hill, just let the foot off, n slowed down, never put the foot to the floor. so it didnt work that hard

 

P.S do it without the nagging g/f in the passanger seat (i love u hayley)

Buried the speedo on my '03 Corolla 5 speed. I'm guessing that was around 115.

 

Gotten my '01 ZX9R (900cc motorcycle) up to 180 indicated... which is closer to 175 actual. 115mph is close to redline in 3rd... and it still has 3 more gears :)

 

FYI to the guy above - without significant engine mods... a ZX7 won't do mor etha 165. You probably had some huge speedo error. Very common if you dropped the gearing.
