How Fast Would You Go?

Recommended Posts

Guest Corollasroyce
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.

Yeh i just did the conversion, my speedo was reading 290 kmh...it wasn't geared but did have some minor mods, nothing that would make it that much faster, full exhuast, K&N, maybe raise my max speed by 5 mph...but that was needle buried...i realize that there is speedo errors at that speed but thtas what it read...

 

The new R1's do 106MPH in first gear and they still got 5 more....how ridiculous the gearing is for road driving, they should keep track gearing for the track...

I hit the speed limiter in my 01 Corolla S all the time, car is smooth and only in the 4k range so its really no big deal.

 

On my 96 CBR600 F3 ive hit 150mph a few times, thing wont accelerate after that, and the highways around here dont give you enough time to anyway.

you should be able to go as fast as your CBR 3 times in the distance it takes you to bury the needle in your rolla.....and there is no way a 96 cbr 600 would do 150 mph either, heh....the 2005 honda 600RRs won't go faster than 153 corrected.

Actually the F3 can get up to 153 just like its new brother (600RR). While the 600RR traps about .3 better in the quarter mile than the F3, its basically not any quicker and they both hit the upper 150 range before dying out. Not sure where you got your info from.

sigh...well im too tired right now to go get specs, but i can garentee that the f3 weights about 40 lbs more than the current 600rr as the 2005 model lost 11.5 lbs over the 2004 model.....as for horsepower i think the f3 ran about 90 hp?? the new 600rr has 111.....plus the new 600rr has completly differnt gearing so i HIGHLY doubt your f3 will put down 153 mph in a speed trap....if you want to continue arguing i'll go grab some dyno charts and specs and prove your f3 won't do 153 mph without SERIOUS modifications

F3 stock pushes out 90bhp yes, mine had a full yoshimura exhaust and jet kit and was dyno'd at 105bhp. I didnt have my radar gun handy (this is a joke) while I was going at that speed, but I had my eyes and the speedo was on 150. Sure, analog needles can be off a bit, maybe I only got to 145?

I actually like the tall gearing on the liter bikes... it makes them much more pleasant on longer rides at crusing speeds in top gear. It's nice to only turn 4500 RPM at 70mph.. rather than 7000 like on a 600cc bike.

 

Besides the R1 has a tall 1st gear so that the other gear can be more closely spaced. It also has a lot of over rev...meaning that there is an extra 1500 RPM that does not provide additonal power or acceelration, but allows the rider to avoid an unnessesary upshift on some parts of a racetrack.

 

But I know what you mean ...it's funny that a steet legal motorcycle can exceed all Legal US speed limits without ever shifting out of 1st gear or getting even close to redline.

The fastest i've gone in my 98 is about 105, i gotta say the suspension isn't great lol. In my 90 maxima i've gone 145 which is what it tops at, mulitple times, and the handling was pretty good. The fastest i've gone around a curve is 100 racing some prick in a civic. A cop came behind us and grabbed him !!

Managed to push our '00 Prizm LSi to 105ish, but there wasn't much beyond that (and my wife gave me a mean look). :) I suppose I'd guess top speed at 110-115?

 

Held 130 for quite some time (Nevada) in my old Storm GSi. Wind noise was incredible, but the car was pretty stable.

 

Can't wait to open up my '04 GTO and hit the limiter ~160... haven't really done anything more than commute thus far. Sure feels stable at 100+ though!

I have a 01 toyota corolla 5 speed sport and I had the speedometer pegged as far as it would go and it kept going to about 120 +or- 5MPH, But with the car being governed at a certain speed as soon as it hit 120 or so I still had my foot on the gas but it slowed itself down about 5 MPH and have done it a few times since then. The car does not shake at all and has the best acceleration I have ever seen in a small car.Never had any problems with it.

94 dx with 150k i can get going 110 but i dont want to push it any harder because i feel bad for her when i go that fast... shes not the car she use to be. i drive 90-95 on a regular basis and she has no problem with that.

Hmm! Haven't really pushed the Corolla but often find I am doing 95mph without realising it which is a little surprising! I usually set the cruise control at 80mph which is the speed I am used to driving at (80mph is illegal but ignored on the motorways in the UK).

 

Fastest I have been is:

 

150mph on a tuned Suzuki RG500 (that was the clock speed) and I held it for about a second and then eased off (and my friend passed me.....nutter!). This was on the M62 in England in the early hours of the morning.

 

260kmh in an Audi driving from Germany through Switzerland to Italy and that was almost as scarey as being on the bike as the road was much twistier (even a 'straight' road seems twisty at that speed I guess).

 

260 kmh = 162mph I think.

 

And get this; I has people flashing their lights at me to move over - usually Ferrari's!
