someone said 145, but that's just hear-say, no definite answer yet to my knowledge.
I believe we run outta gear before anything else. I know there is a pic up at the RedlineForums that has someone's speedo at around 130ish and the tach is at 6000ish in 5th gear. So I would assume that if it is limited, it is REAL close to the tranny limit for it.CD'srt said:Well usually most new cars are suppose to have that in their car now, but if you change the ECU or PCM, then that takes care of the issue. The Z rated tires are just there in case you want to take your car that high, but for our cars stock it cuts off at around 149 mph or so.......
kool, ill look into it, thanksSp00ner said:Almost any tire site/store will have something with all the speed ratings explained. I almost positive the TireRack.com has it posted somewhere.
Actually it does matter, because why would you want to go over the speed limit for the design of the tire, and risk blowing a tire at that high of speed? If you go and ask any tire shop, if it matters or not on what is rated on the tires, I'm sure that they would tell you how important it is to go by what speed is recomended by the rate. There is a reason why they have rated tires.......CAVIFL45 said:tires dont matter the Z24 came with H rated tires and topped 108mph
Yea really man, and having a tire go out because of too much speed is NOTHING like having a flat at 60. The tire basically explodes, taking alot of the fender with it, and I don't even have to tell you what controling the car would be like at 100+ mph with an explosive blow-out.CD'srt said:Actually it does matter, because why would you want to go over the speed limit for the design of the tire, and risk blowing a tire at that high of speed?

Somone has a pic of their Redline going 135 with about 600 rpms or so to go on 5th gear. I would guess its gear limited by that, or both. 140+ mph is faster than you're ever going to go on most race tracks, unless it's a plain long oval, and you're never gonna see it on the 1/4 mi track in this car. So short gearing is better to me. If it was geared too tall it would fall out of the supercharger's peak power with every shift.CoBIZZLE said:Yeah Z, Ive heard the 143...
Why cant it go any faster?? Is the tranny topped out??? If so then that sux!!!
I've also heard that its drag limited, what does that mean, I don't think I fully understand. Does it just mean the aerodynamics??? Like how it cant go faster cause how much the air/wind pressure pushes against it???
Hopefully after upgrades it will at least hit 150+mph!!!
I just wanna do that for braggin rights... 150+mph in a 4 cyl is just cool to me!
