140 mph In my 88 Iroc-z after that I was worried about blowing the engine it was still the stock 350 V8. So i decided it was not worth it.

On a side note from that. Does anyone have an idea of what rims are on the cobalt SS, I know they are 18's but some pictures have different rims than others

http://www.engine-power.com/chevy/chevrolet_cobalt_ss_supercharged_4.html that being one of them.

I have pre-ordered a cobalt and there wasnt an option for a different rim so im just wondering if anyone knows which one it will come with.

It's the first set of rims. I really wish they would have put the C5's on (second set) but shit happens can alwasy change them neway.

Thanks, yeah me too those second ones look very sweet on there. The stock rims on the cobalt ss are 25 lbs a piece so it will be nice to lighten some wieght when i change them out.

183mph - Supra Single Turbo 6 speed... racing against my friends 02 Viper GTS ACR on the bottle (150 shot)
Who won?

The Viper -- my 5th gear runs out before his... so I had to go into 6th. If we would have kept pulling upwards of 190 or so, he would have had to have gone into 6th, then it would have been over.

So... I won up to about 168 -- at which time i went into 6th, he pulled back what I had gained up to about 183 or so... and gained another car and a half on me :)

We both had to lift as we were coming up on a curve.

I'd say 130 in the SRT-4. Definately as fast as I will be going on stock suspension. You can feel it start to "stand up: around 115-120!!!

i have heard that a srt at high speed feels like its going to shake into pieces. Does it really feel like that?

hmm.. prob about 165-170 in my 92 stealth TT.. me and a buddy with a 98 ram air TA got into an arguement because he said his ta had more top end.. so he maxed it out.. then I passed him!!!... it felt like a wind tunnel inside the car!! the speedo said 180.. but I'm sure it was a little off.. the car was hitting the rev limiter! The really cool part.. is I had another buddy with a 93 stealth TT.. and he passed me (FAST) after I was maxed out.. and pulling away!!!

also been about 135 on my 600RR!... that I just sold today :(
oh well.. 1 step closer to having an SS when its out!!

I've taken my SRT-4 up to 140mph and it feels like the most stable car at that speed that I've ever driven... even comparing it to the Supra which feels light and likes to walk on the road a bit. The SRT-4 just squats and goes, feels very stable.

Just my 2c tho.

No...its not going to shake into pieces. The reason mine may feel floaty is because the road surface is not the smoothest were I usually do my high speed runs. In fact its rather bumpy...so maybe that's the culprit. I just know that with coilovers and/or even springs and some bigger sways I would alot more comfortable at those speeds.

Don't really recall the fastest.
How about Zero to scary. I remember those.
1st Buryed the needle in a 426 powered Plymouth Fury with the top down. just try an stop that tank. :) All vibrations smooth out after 120 and all thats left is the wind.
2nd was a friends blown chevy 350 powered ford 't' bucket. At about 115 I relized that you can't steer. We adjusted the caster after I cleaned my shorts out. :)

Oh. and I've had my SRT up to 140, no worries. corners just come up real fast.
