11-26-2002, 06:32 PM
the most i hit is 200 km/h several times now...but i just can;t seem to go past it. Probably cause my engine is old.
best place to do it is on the 401 cause there is nowhere that cops can hide there...theres like 8 lanes both ways so a cop can;t bust a radar on you....just gotta look out for the ones that might be cruising.

the 403 too but i'v heard stories of cops posting there so im a little scared to speed there now.

but if u wanna try it out go on the 401 :)

The best place in my opinion is the 400 south exit ramp to Hwy 7. Just check the 2 on ramps for cops...then full throttle it to Hwy. 7 and get the hell out of there!

The ti can't go any faster than 190km/h...due to speed limiter...doh...

well the ecplise needed the turbo to keep up wit u and i would rather get 2 smaller turbos cuz of turbo lag but thats my opinon

he's right, eclipse come with turbo stock though...why dont he put a t3/t4 hybrid turbo and build the engine to run a lot of boost? the boost should kick in around 3500k or so...

Puuuuuuure rush especially since i had the top down, it was really windy with Loud beats and i was just passing every car as if they were going only like 60km/h. best part was i was cruizin around 170km/h, and some stupid civic hatchback with like 8 guys all packed into it tried racing me.. so id simple pop it to 4th and just fly away... 20 minutes later id see them again and id do it again.

but now that i think about it, i wouldnt be able to do it. Just the idea of ****ing losing control and slamming into a tree or something just freaks the shit out of me. Plus I was going 270 with my good friend, if i got into an accident and survived, id feel so horrible if she had been killed all because of an adrenaline rush.

Well the fastest i've ever gone was on two wheels. All though i wasn't in control. GSXR 750 260km, i was on the back and i all i heard were low beats in my ears. It was on the way up to Wasaga on the 400. The broken line was solid. After a while the line began to fade. (cause i think we went a bit faster)

The fastest i've gone with my R6 was 220km on some deserted road up north. I felt as if i was getting into a wabble so i had to slow down.

In my b/f 325is, the fastest i've gone was 240km down 427 south. He slaughtered my friends' boyfriend in his brand new 2002 prelude. He was trying so hard to keep up, we passed him like he was a turtle and we were a jumbo jet.

I got ya beat!!

Fastest that i've ever hit ( on my cbr929rr of course ) was 270kn/h.

Smooth as silk baby!!!

By the way fast_gal, r6's are notorious for their shakes at high speeds due to their steep rake. Buy a steering dampener and you'll see a huge difference!!*th-up*

Thanks, unfortunately i sold my bike about a year ago. I did find out about the shakes after that. All in all it was my favorite bike. The 2003 R6 has lost a few more pounds this year and it will be interesting to see what feedback yamaha gets. And also to see if yamaha was able to address that problem with some of the other changes made for 2003.

BTW, i'm sure we went faster than 260 but i was too scared to look at the speedo. When you're flying by cars that may make a sudden lane change anytime, you kind of start holding on for dear life. BUt i'm glad to hear you're part of the club!!*th-up*

This was last year on my way up to wasaga beach on Hwy50. The different elevation drops make it easier when going down those long steep hills. I hit 195km/h zooming down the 2 lane roads. It was totally a Adrenalin rush:eek:

On my way from niagra i went 255- closer to 260 haven't much time look at speedo i was going FAST, as i said before my limiter (240 as it says in manual)didnt kicked in for some reason.
Anyway it was fun.

I had my bros 89 944 turbo up to about 235, 240!!! I had lots more power and would have gone faster but there was a bad vibration at 210!!!

My dad had a black 96 ferrari I took out without him knowing when I was like 16!!! That thing, man!!! was all top speed, 260 before I knew. It also had much more, But I never pushed it any faster I was scared shitless!!! could bairly drive manual, ha ha man, I was so stupid!!!

Sorry, but I'm gonna call BS on this one. 270 Km/h in a 99 328i? Doubtful, as the car simply doesn't have the HP to get up to that speed.

Max, even with the rev / speed limiter removed, is about 240-250 km/h, going downhill.

I'd put my money against the Euro 3.0L doing that much....aerodynamic drag would have a pretty big impact above 200 km/h, and most of the 3.0L Euro's I've seen top out about 250-260 km/h, even on the track.

That's what I hate about threads like this....a bunch of people figuring they're fast drivers, because they've sped on a public highway.

I know at least a few people here who are capable of driving their cars quite well...I just wish the rest would take a driving school, and learn the difference between driving fast, and being a fast driver.

For sure Pat i wouldnt be able to hit that speed with my 328i cause at 220km/h, my car was already in 5000 rpms on its highest gear. but it was with my carerra.

and yeah, big difference between driving fast and being a fast driver. I was just driving fast :cool:

hey pat, i dont think you'll be needing the flame suit this time...:rolleyes:

whats the fastest you've ever gone? street and track? also...post a track story if you could...i'd find it pretty interesting, it was awesome at that cruise to mosport...your car looks kool on the track with the HID on!

GR8 Ride
11-27-2002, 12:48 PM
At Mosport, my car tops out about 200 km/h at the end of the back straight. (all uphill that darn thing).

However, for comparison sake, I'm also doing about 200 km/h at the bottom of turn 4 (and braking like a b***h going into turn 5).

However, with all of 189 HP, it tops out fairly easily. Most of the Euro 3.0Ls will hit about 220 Km/h at the end of the backstraight, so I'm not really off their top end too much.

In a Z06 I've hit 250 km/h (not much time to look at the speedo beyond that, but we were still accelerating at that point), and in a Viper, about the same.

I'd like to see what one of the LMP-900 cars is doing at the end of the backstraight at Mosport...I'd have to suspect pretty close to 300 km/h, if not in excess of it.

Dan,

I believe the F360 can hit 309km/h (downhill) but I DON"T beleive that Moerom's dad did it here on Canadian soil (especially on public streets). When magazines do top speed testing it take a very long stretch of road to actually truely hit the max speed of the car... all cars take extra long to edge out the last 10km/h... just look at the Motoring videos on the oval course... they all top out on the second lap.

Lilsmoothie.... your car will top out at 230km/h with those mods...again it'll take a while to reach it though.

Ask him, it might have even been a few km's faster...There were actually a few others racing.. one of my close friends dad has a 360spider, and hes hit 310 MANY times on the 407...
heres a pic i took a while back when we went for a cruise.. (didnt get that fast that time )
oh yah, i'll see if i can get you a ride in the spider when next summer rolls around... hes actually got a new 2003 spider coming because so he says "this car is getting old" I'm not sure, but it might even be that 420 horse one.. don't quote me 100%.. i'll ask and next year you can go for a blast... if ya want.. *th-up*

ya I have to say, 309 in a 360 :huh?: on the 407, Im going to have to call bulshit on that one, did you witness this? And who in the world would have lent you a lambo :huh?: come on. Cars like that are insured under exteamly strick policies. and only a complete idiot would let you drive it, even if it means pulling it out of the driveway!!! *wave*

#1) I didn't witness this, but when it comes from moerom (who is family to me) and from his FATHER, and from my friend and HIS father, i know its not bullshit. (there was 3 ferraris together ripping up the 407) ..that's why i wanted moerom to reply..
i don't come on this board to talk shit...and i hope im not known for talking shit...!
and i was passanger of the lambo, i didn't take it that fast...
i just meant in general thats the fastest i've ever been...

btw--that lambo does in fact get lent out quite often, he doesn't care, if it get smashed, so be it... the owner is the most generous person i've come to know... he wants to please everyone and will do anything for even a stranger...

Lambo Diablo SE30
1 of 150 in the world...
he's got many many lambos, but this is probably my favourite!

WOW
Last year I was following my friend with my 87Is and
he had his 1998 Corvette.

On the 174 from the car show in Orleans to ottawa, we were doing over 260kmh....Good thing I had N.O.S.

This is the fastest I had ever gone.

To make sure of the speed we were going ,I asked my budy after the ride How fast we were going.

He was confused because I was able to follow him at 260kmh
But did confirm 260kmh.

I will never do this again....Too fast and too dangerous.

I can show you again.....
Next spring

This car can do 238kmh stock....So with the help of 70hp shot of NOS i was able to go up to 260kmh.

Hey how fast are you on the 1/4 mile
I did 13.85 sec with my N.O.S. setup..

Remember one time I was driving my 2002 GTI 1.8T (sold) from Niagara to Toronto with my brother driving the M Coupe, it was at around 3 at night after we hit the casino, we didn't win or lose anything, maybe the parking fee...

I was going 220 (floored and climbing slowly) on the bridge but he just passed me like a rocket... I haven't tried the top speed on my car yet.. but that was really impressive. I think it was over 250 (speed limiter removed)

Oh believe me! THEY'RE NOT FASTER. LOL. You do the math there big boy... a Duc makes 110rwHP and weighs 430lbs dry a 600cc Superbike makes 101rwHP and weighs 370lbs dry. I've witnessed it first hand MANY MANY MANY times. I never said that you would keep up, just stating that they are an absolute rip off and waste of money for exactly double the money of a real bike. It's all status symbol and a typical Italian dick measuring device. You might as well buy a '80s Maseratti BiTurbo and learn to pay for the repairs on that thing... it's along the same lines.

Randy, Randy, Randy......Your killen me here.........I don't think your on the same page.....I'm talking about a 998. Have you ever driven a 998? And you actually think a 600 will beat it ha ha ha I don't know who your trying to fool, 998 with two less cylinder will beat any 600 hands down. Sorry buds Keep digging...;) the italian bit might buy you alittle more time.........:D

i'm pretty f*cked up....

for all the people that are familier with the hamilton area...

the LINC - 206km/h
Rymal (H. 53) - 165km/h
Stonechurch Rd. - 130 km/h

stonechurch is a small but busy road, and rymal is one of those small 2 lane highways, but not really a highway....the linc in short highway, and everyone was suprised that i did 206 on it...

Sorry, but I'm gonna call BS on this one. 270 Km/h in a 99 328i? Doubtful, as the car simply doesn't have the HP to get up to that speed.

Max, even with the rev / speed limiter removed, is about 240-250 km/h, going downhill.



270km/h is very doubtful indeed, but I once saw 255km/h on my speedometer when I was driven on the German A1 wich has a very long strait that goes downhill. The RPM meter was almost at 6500. I don't have proof of it because I was alone in the car en at that speed i'm not going to take a picture. *no-no*

But 240+ on the speedometer is not a problem in a 328i, this one was taken on a flat road with 2 people and a small dog on board.

Acording to the manuel the 328i has a real topspeed of 236km/h.

By the way a Bmw Alpina b10 bi-turbo is also pretty fast!:eek:

Very true, but I'm not lying about my adventure and I got 2 friends to prove it. But not all of us had a camera on us when we did the stunt. But next time I will.

And what differential was put into the car? There aren't many taller ratios available for the E36, unless it's a custom gearset.

The E36 M3 (US spec) came with a 3.23 rear end, and is mechanically restricted to 157 MPH tops.

With the 3.15 rear end from the Euro M3 it's 161 MPH tops.

Doesn't matter if the car was blown, sprayed, whatever. No effect on the top speed at all...just an effect on how quickly it gets up to that speed.

I'm doubting anybody has changed the rear diff in that car...if anything, they would have gone shorter, and not taller, as the M3 is simply geared for highway driving to begin with. All the Euro options for the E36 M3 involved a 3.64:1 or 3.91:1 rear end instead of the 3.15:1 stock unit.

His car is a Euro 328i, maybe they were different?

No, his car is a US spec M3, blown. It's not a 328i / is.

The 328 rear diff is a 2.93:1 unit, but it's also generally an open diff, and not a limited slip diff.

Also, the bolt pattern is different on the input shaft, and the gearset is a little smaller. I'd be highly surprised if somebody swapped in a 328 rear diff, as top speed would still be restricted to 173 MPH with those numbers.

It's the stupid way to build a car...how often do you accelerate as hard as possible, and how often do you get to exceed 150 MPH? The first one I can see quite often (which is why the Euro models offered 3.64:1 and 3.91:1 rear diffs). Around Toronto (or anywhere in NA for that matter) you rarely (and shouldn't on city streets / highways!) get to see 150 MPH+. Even on a track like Mosport, you might see 150 MPH+ ONCE near the end of the backstraight.

Even if you were building the car as a racecar, you would have gone shorter on the rear end, not taller. We've had supercharged US spec M3's at Mosport before, and they don't max out at the end of the backstraight at Mosport in 5th gear (157 MPH) with the 3.23 rear diff. Doubtful this kid is going to either...

So I agree with SF, and I'm calling BS on this one.
