Nothing on the road is faster than a radio.
He didnt think so

I remember last year I was doing 121mph on the expressway one night and the state police was at a dead stand still, He saw me and i for some reason thought he wasnt going to catch me. Well, i was wrong. i looked at my rear view and saw him gaining on me. he hasd to be doing at least 145mph to catch me. Well he stoppd me and gave my a 90mph in a 55mph. That was bad enough,. those car dont have a factory limiter.

he did have a crown vic as well.

I was doing 20 over one night, had an officer go over a bridge above me, drive another 1/4 mile, then he could get on the frontage, to drive another half mile, to turn around, to come back. He got me before my turn a mile and a half from the bridge. They're fast.

My roomate had a Grand Marquee (CV with options) until recently. We also have a freind how has installed lights and cameras and stuff in squad cars for a while. The cars are fairly stock now-a-days. Their big advantage omes with all the coolers they get (like tranny, steering, oil, etc). Most stock cars will blow their engines after running 100+ for any length of time, but the CV'* can hadle it because of the extra cooling. Like mentioned before, if they need a fast car, they use a Camaro or a Stang to get you.

PS: I've seen a GTP (looked stock) outrun a squad car on COPS before. They got busted because the lady driving it put it in the ditch. Normally cops just wait til your cars blows up then they just roll up and tag you.

I had a '93 Police Interceptor Crown Vic, and it was no slouch. I was actually impressed.

According to a display @ a VA state fair a few years back they(VA STP) are limited to 135mph. After slowing to 80 and finding out I WAS ( I did not know) being chased the PA trooper asked/told me " I've had this cruiser maxed out @115 for 6 miles chaseing you- how fast where you going?" That was in '89 hehe

It doesn't matter how fast they are. Like said above, you can never outrun a radio.
