What a joke. Looking at that scenery. He'* not even moving.

I can hardly make a 135mph image show up from vibration and movement while driving. And my car with the longer and wider wheelbase/track width will be generally more stable than a GP at that speed.

It does run through the revs pretty quick though.

Its not a Bonnie, there is no E/M button to switch back and fourth. So either its a Canadian car, or it has stock gears and is really going that fast. (speeds seem to be about right for a 2.93 geared car) And its going through the gears way too slow to have 3.69 gears, it would go through the gears much quicker. That or its just a really slow car!?

Where does it say what the mods are. Sounds about like my dads car, but has very similar mods so that makes sense.

For sure the speedo is in Km/h on the outer row and MPH on the inner row.

That doesn't seem that fast to me, certainly it doesn't have 3.69 gears. Almost every day I drive my car I get to go from 100 to 160 Km/h (60 to 100 MPH), every day I marvel at the way the torque converter unlocks as I first squeeze the throttle, next is the downshift into third, followed by the downshift into second where I hold it for a few seconds at WOT .

I have 3.29 gears with a 2800 stall including fully programmed shifts points on a completely rebuilt tranny with all the hardened shafts, all new clutches, solenoids, etc and a shift kit. The tranny programming makes an incredible difference over stock.

On the highway I can keep up to a 2004 CompG with 3.29 gears (same tranny as mine) and the upgraded, intercooled Cartuning turbo until about 180 Km/h where he begins to walk me. I have gone against a 2001 GP GT with 3.29 gears and a non-intercoolered standard Cartuning turbo...I can pull on him slightly to well past 200 Km/h. (I've posted pictures of both cars here previously).

If I met this guy on the highway I'm sure I'd have his doors

Cheers,

no, its definately in mph. it clearly says mph on the far right just under the hash for 115. and what car would have a speedo that goes to 115Km/h?

You're right...no so clear for us old guys

Hmm, strange that the only point in the video where he really seems to be going fast is near the end, at that point he'* past 120 MPH?

Hmmm....
