My top speed was 289km/h on the markham By-Pass (i know anyone who lives around that area will know this road !) I did that while i was driving my fathers porsche ! I hit that speed when i was 1/2 way through the straight away !! It was SERIOUSLY INTENSE ! I LOVED IT .

05-15-2002, 01:56 PM
:eek: That. is. really. fast. Holy shit! on the street. If you had gone off the road you woulda been *angel*... What kinda porsche was it?

05-15-2002, 02:53 PM
well you picked the right road to do it,

for those who dont know, the markham By-Pass is a loong straight of road, no intersections or anything. You can hit your top speed on it no problem and keep going for a few kliks..

05-15-2002, 03:08 PM

I used to live @ warden and 16th Ave for 20 years......i just moved to mississauga (to get my own pad + closer to work)

My quickest time was 240km going down the 407, back before it became a hotspot for cops!! IT felt great!!

05-16-2002, 08:59 AM
LoL the 407........Cops......here is what I think of police...check attatchment :p

The 407 is notorious for police enforcment :( It sucks now.....dont get me wrong you can still speed @ the right times ~~ Anytime JUST before traffic builds up or Late/Early in the morning ! I was on 407 yesterday and topped out @ 208kmh :) It was fun ! Racing a st00pid civic :p

Were you the one driving @ 315 ?
I was with my father when he broke 300.....not 2 much different from 290 ! WHAT A RUSH THOUGH ! WoW :cool: :puke: :P :D

05-17-2002, 12:21 PM
235km/h in my fierogt before i noticed the front end lifting off the ground, so i had to slow down, also because it has no power steering, the drag was causing me to almost lose control, very scary! those things have no weight in the front, and it didn't help having a v8 in the back weighing my rear down =)
this was on the 401 going downhill approaching the don valley entrance going east.

and approx 210km/h? in my e36 (speed limiter kicked in)
this was up on country roads near rice lake

Oh and 300+km/h in a mclaren F1
this was in need for speed =)

05-20-2002, 03:08 AM
car feels really under control at that speed wanted to push it to the limmit but the cars were coming my way too fast...*th-up*

05-20-2002, 04:20 PM
is there any police at that highway!??!:huh?:

05-20-2002, 04:52 PM
:cool: *th-up* Thats Crazy 289km/hour on the Markham by-pass
I'm still an amateur... but ... the fastest i've gone was in my shit box Mazda 626, 89'... i hit 210km/hour on hwy 400 on the way back from Wasaga on a weekday... people tell me thatz not a good idea*no-no* .... too many pigs in that area........hehe... the whole dashboard was shaking in the car... i got my friends holding on the to the "holy shit handles!" *wave*

05-20-2002, 07:29 PM
had my 318is to 120mph, which is about 200km/h. that was at about 6K rpm in 5th and my rev limiter kicks in at 6.5K so that was about all she had left in her. damn those 4.10 gears for top speed:D

05-22-2002, 10:16 PM
240 KM/H in my 325 IS
295 KM/H in my CBR900RR
245 KM/H in dad's ACCORD V6 Coupe

HaHa!! you are so full of shit. There is no way on earth a CBR 900 will do that speed unless you drop a 1100XX motor in it or turbo it.... I've been riding for years and know exactly how far out bike speedo's are. You're dreaming buddy. I'll put money that your Honda won't go over 275km/h.

Nice Try.

05-23-2002, 12:17 AM

205 km/h in Neon with 4ppl when i had an aftermarket chip
235km/h 99 Jaguar XJR with a full load of ppl, i looked down at the speedo and decided it was too fast cuz my bro just got a ticket the day before
255km/h (my bro driving) 89 Porsche 911 Targa

ammmm...ummmm....my guess that at 235 civic would fly....at second they all limited at 180 at third their speedos up to 180 only!!!! i think thats bullshit..anyway...who knows miricles happens lol

05-23-2002, 03:36 PM
Randy, I hit 185 mp/h (185 x 1.6 = 296 km/h) ... i'm not talking about "true speed" , i know there is an speedo error....
About the Civic ... i'm talking about the one with 160cv (also have some mods... read 185cv in a dyno, NOT at the wheels)

... dont like to lie, i know what it feels to read bullshit in forums.:huh?:

05-24-2002, 01:20 PM
cv? what the hell is that?.... Are you trying to talk French? I think you mean HP (Horsepower). I know what you're talking about regarding speed error... the NEW CBR954RR can't even top 168mph on the radar in recent testing.

Saw the cops, slowed down to 160 ish, they radared me at 143.

I was in a rush! [seriously]

Paid ~$300.

I'll be damned if I ever do that again on public roads.

245km/h in my boss's early 90's carrera 4 (before I slammed on the brakes thinking I saw a cop, anything is a cop at that speed)

206km/h in my mom's 525iA, bouncing off the governer....

180km/h in my very unstable at speed pickup truck

102.3km/h on my mountain bike (radar run at Mansfield Ski resort, straight down the hill), on grass

I did an indicated 233km/h in my E30 M3 going from Vancouver to Calgary. I don't know what the actual speed was but I totally slowed down after I saw some mountain goats by the side of the road.

07-04-2002, 01:55 AM
230 in my e36 ( limited

215 in my GTP ( limited )

07-10-2002, 12:42 PM
Hey all this is nothing! Before I owned a BMW I had a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee... I know I know, a turtle right? Nope! Some guy in a Acura hit me on the 400N, he tried to take off thinking I was too slow to catch him... boy was he wrong. I toped off at 185kph, right behind him - in the end, he just gave up and did the speed limit until the cops caught up (we had the cops on the cellphone the whole time).

I love my BMW but damn, Jeeps can fly!


07-10-2002, 04:05 PM
255 km/h from niagra falls :) well it feels nice.... still do not understand where's da limit on this caR!?*par-t*
