I have maxxed out my dads GTO (155), and my old roommates bike (189), both in the right circumstances, and let me say, always respect speed. At that speed, if something happens, you are going too fast to react, you are really taking your life into your own hands.

My Camaro is supposed to be good for over 150, but it is a 94 with original suspension, and I wouldn't even think about attempting it. Even with the GTO my dad checked the tire pressure first, and the car was only about two months old, and he wanted to know how fast it would go.

i have had mine up to 184km on a 4 lane highway with NO traffic then i backed off because i realized that it was NOT smart to be doing speeds like that on a car that is 14years ole and stilll has mostly original parts

I know my car can probably make it to 150, but I will never go that fast.

My car is a stoplight car, not a freeway car.

yea, no SSEi for me however; I have had both SSE'* a little past 110 the Gray one I tested the limitations on the I-465 and the Green SSE on back country roads trying to keep up with a co-worker in his merc cugar.

110+ on slim country roads not recommended, I actually wanted to see what she could do, I'm actually not a speed fanatic like most here, I'd rather slap some paint and shoes on a car that has a good engine to carry it.
