    Do you have a site I can go to? Or any suggestions on modifications without changing the entire tranny?<!-- Signature -->

  4. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    I hooked up an aftermarket MPH guage, and headed to the salt flats.

    I went about 205 MPH. It scared the sh*t outta me.

    I have my tranny fine tuned. I have the first 4 gears tuned for 1/4 mile racing, and the 5th and 6th gear fixed for top speed.<!-- Signature -->

That's why on tracks, it is leagal to drive fast, because the street is perfectly clean of anything to affect your driving skills. On the salt flats, you gotta watch for animals. I had to clean up some roadkill on my car that I hit doing 200. LOL<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    Well I just have the stock Speedometer, so it stops after 150, but i know one morning i was going to work and i didnt want to be late, but i bet i was going at least 170-180 cuz it was all straight country roads so i mean i could see really far ahead of me, and no animals thank god.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    I had a 97 Z28 that I did up nicely, and got it to 183 at Lebanon Valley in NY. My mother in law bought it off me. I have a 2001 SS now, just about stock (new MAF and took the "cone of silence" off and a Jet chip) and got it up to about 160 in NC on Rte. 40. In 6th gear it seems to lose acceleration. I kept it in 5th.<!-- Signature -->

    You don't just hook up a new speedo and head for the Salt Flats of Nevada when you live in Hanover Pennsylvania. Something sounds a little fishy about your story. Anyways, cool if it did happen. 130+mph is my best, hoping for 140+ this summer.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    I highly doubt it's stock,anyways it's cool to hear American Muscle go over 150mph.I myself have gone 125mph on the freeway on my way to school.It scared the shit outta me but I'm ready for more top speed escapades!
     
  16. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    HEck, I live in PA (harrisburg area) and cops are everywhere, but I did hit 143mph once, and a couple times have done around 120. But for the most part, I don't speed that insanely. I'd love to go to a track. Although my car is stock as of right now. Gonna get the LM exhaust and all new intake hopefully sometime this summer.
    Later

  17. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    I have tighter gears in my car, and I top 6th at about 145 or so. I like to run it up at the BMW road course...it's fun. I love pulling the 'Bird in there...every once in a while some snotty guy that has just bought him a new Bimmer or some other sports car will look at it and say "whats this muscle car doing here?"

    Then I'll put 10 grand down that says he can't beat my lap time....only lost once. Porsche 911 GT2 got me by a second and a half. Although some other exotics have fallen victim to the Phoenix, such as a BMW Z8, and a few Porsche 911 Turbos....Porsche wins are always savored, there's nothing like seeing the look on the drivers faces when their babies get beat.

    I don't own a firebird[I hope to one day] but I have been in a firehawk going 178mph on a NORMAL road. I live up in canada. There is a place called algonquin park and several small towns around it. I was with my uncle[My family are the pround owners of 5 F-bodies] and we were outside of a little town by our cottage. There is a highway that is 12 miles long, In a straight line! It was pure sweetness. The normal speedometer on the car was was fine up to 160 mph, but then started to go wacky. It started to drop, but we were not slowing down, It eventually hit 0 even though we were moving at plus 170. he has a digital one built into the dash, which told us the real speed. It takes alot of courage to do that, and I commend all of you who have done it. P.S what happend to the speedometer? Have you experieced this problem before?<!-- Signature -->

  22. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    One time I was coming home at like 1AM with 4 other people in my friends Impala SS. Some guy in a Golf tried to take us right after the light turned green like we were trying to race, my friend was like,"Oh hell no!" and stepped on it. Burned that guy so bad. Then we got onto the hwy. 290 freeway going about 85 and the guy tried to build up some speed before he got up to us. I estimate he was going about 105 when he went past us. This was his big mistake, I don't think he realized that on the freeway it's a whole new ballgame racing an Impala. Driver let him get by for maybe 5 seconds and then he stepped on it. We blew by that guy going 140 and still pulling. So thats my B-Body story, closest thing I personally have to an F-Body. Even got that one on tape. :Þ

    I know someone though who lost his license because he blew by a Z28 cop going 160 in his SS. He was out of sight before the cop could get his lights on, so he pulled off onto the feeder. When the cop caught up he told the guy if he wouldn't of slowed down he would of never seen him again. Then the guy made some crack about how he wasn't speeding, that the car took him along for the ride. So the cop arrested him.
     
  23. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    Oh yeah, one time I was coming back from a trip going East on I-10. If you don't know about I-10 in atleast Texas, it is absolutely desolate from San Antonio to Houston with only a few small towns in between. I think Sealy, Brookshire, Columbus, Flatonia, and Schulenburg, all spread between the 200 mile distance. I was in my friends LT4 vette that dad eventually bought. I woke up because of all the noise and we were going 155, ended up maxing out at 165 for a LONG time. Anyways, we set some kind of personal record for the trip (we go like 3 times a year). Old record for the total 312 mile trip was 3 1/2 hours no stops, avg. 5 hours with stops. New record is 2 hours 40 minutes.

    NOTE TO EVERYONE: DON'T SPEED 20 MILES EAST OR 60 MILES WEST OF SAN ANTONIO ON I-10. STATE TROOPERS ARE RELENTLESS OUT THERE. I WAS COMING BACK FROM FIGHTING MY TICKET OUT THERE (WHICH I WON) AND EVERY SINGLE PERSON THAT SPED PAST MY CRUSING SPEED OF 69MPH WAS PULLED OVER A FEW MILES AHEAD OF ME. IF YOU GET PULLED OVER OUT THERE FORGET ABOUT FIGHTING IT. I SAW TIME AFTER TIME PERFECT DEFENSES GET TORN DOWN BY THEIR JUDGE, THEY WANT REVENUE BAD. SOME GUY WAS ACCUSED OF GOING 95 IN A 70, HE PROVED BEOND A DOUBT HIS CAR COULDN'T TOP 75 AND HE STILL GOT NAILED GUILTY. ONLY REASON I WON WAS BECAUSE MY COP WASN'T THERE, THEY STILL TRIED TO PROSECUTE ME!!! THEY TRIED TO TELL ME THAT ONE TROOPER WAS AS GOOD AS ANOTHER WHEN ACTING AS WITNESS, I TOLD THEM THAT WAS ILLEGAL AND THEY SAID OTHERWISE. I FIGURED IF THEY WERE GOING TO LIE I WOULD TOO, SO I JUST DENIED EVERYTHING. I DENIED EVEN BEING THERE AND THEY COULDN'T DISPROVE ME. I WAS THE ONLY PERSON (OUT OF THE 20 THERE) THAT GOT OFF THE HOOK.

    i just did 140mph.!!!
     
  25. Re: all f-body owners post your fastest top speed

    Fastest fbody I've ever heard of was an SS with a blower making about 500 rwhp, went just over 200 mph in 6th gear with something like 4.10 or 4.3 gears.

    It would take a lot of power to make an fbody with stock 3.42 gears go over 200mph in 6th.

    and remember, it was on the salt flats as well <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>, if you know what I mean <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>, huh,

    So uh do any cops read this forum? All my high speed runs were also on the salt falts... honest.

    How many of you people talk about driving 150+mph and describe what interstate you did it on? sounds pretty stupid, doesn't it?
