well this morning going to work i happened to run into a mitsu lancer that started to try and race me. i'm not sure what model it was, i just remember seing the lancer written on the back of it when he took off on me. i heard a turbo, but it seemed really quite to me as well when he passed. anyways....

we were going about 75mph and he jumped a few cars on me, on the start, i caught up with him at about 110, passed him at around 120-125 and kept going. hit 145 in 4th, got up to 155mph while he was still only a few cars behind and we ran out of road. i took an exit and he kept going so not sure what mods he had other than the turbo and exhaust (fartcan). but one thing i know for sure is our cars will hit 155mph, that's with 1/2 tank of gas and a 230 pound driver. all was on level ground as well. that was running about 5500-5700rpm so there was a little more room to play, but not sure if it would go maybe 5mph faster.


p.s. this was all on a closed track ( i drive it everyday on the way to work ;) )

Nice. I take it that would be the governer? I wish you had a camera though.

this was totally un-expected.. i only had a digi cam on me (in my glovebox) and no way in hell i was reaching for it going that fast.

should be able to get some vids sometime, as fast as it was, i'm sure with 1/8 tank of gas and a small passenger, it would be no problem to hit 150, and get them to record it

as for the govenor... haha i think the redline is the govenor lmao

Wait a minute, you said you were racing in and out of cars and that you got off on an exit, then you say p.s this was on a closed track?????? please explain, not trying to call the bs flag on you but that doesnt seem to make sense to me. Im pretty sure our cars will go that fast, for I've gotten up to 120 in 4th, but your story seems to have a loophole in it...

Anyway, I call BS!

lol, go try it. you'll do one of two things:

#1 never post here again because you will feel dumb for making accusations you have no idea about

#2 just pretend the speedometer actually says 155km/h and stay in denial


why do so many people try to knock on other people's stories on the internet? if you don't like it, don't waste your time by posting in the thread mr roy. lol

Ive touched 170mph before..but I had 300rwhp. ;) I never got a chance to run it top end with 350rwhp... :(

Anyone who cares to do the math... .34 Cd, 5300+rpm, in OD (4L60E) and 3.42 rear end. :) 155mph is moving.. glad to see GM didn't cap them at 120 like everything else.
