Hmmm...still waiting for someone over here to get one through AAFES so we can video that sucker at top end. There's been posts on this already, just search. Some "claim" 155mph, most say 145mph.
Go try it out today!

Same here on the way back from Baton Rouge this weekend (hooray for boon-dock country straight aways!). 145-150ish was about as far as she was willing to go.

this is in the wrong category, but i have had my cobalt up to 155mph that is with my water injection running, and i shut down cause i was coming up on traffic. i don't see the car going much faster than that, i would say 160 at absolute most.. but again i am running water injection, so i'm not sure what it will run bone stock. i tried to go get video of it running that fast a few weeks back but i got pulled over when i came off th eoff ramp at 80mph..luckily he pulled me over before i actually started going.

i will get video of it @ over 150mph soon, but i am still trying to work out the logistical difficulties atm, i just need some time

wish i was back in germany for a few days, then it would be no problem for me to do so lol

well at 80 mph the tach is just about 3250 rpm in fifth, so that means it would redline at 160, but yeah you figure it out, i already got my speeding ticket

Step 1 Find 3-5mile straight of smooth road, no cross traffic, out in the middle of no where, late at night, radar detector armed, balls in hand.

Step 2 Get the car up to temp, & put the gas pedal to 100% throttle, shift prior to redline. Row thru the gears, until you run out of gear, or max speed achieved. If you are affraid of looking at the speedo, then arm your gps and take it with you, it should show your max speed and average.

Thats the how to, I guess????
