I got pulled over in my buddies done up 1990 5.0 mustang..we hit 250 but the cop saw us at about 210 and pulled us over...he didn't have his radar out at the time so he gave us a ticket for doing 120km/h....that was a lucky night!

omid 12-17-2003 08:38 AM

the fastest i've ever pulled with my car was 200 km/h.i don no y it's not just the speed that i like when i feel like speeding.i allways loved to go zic zac between cars and speeding at the same way.btw i never do any crazy sh.it any more on the 60 streets i just do it on the highways.

It was on the way home on the 407 pretty late at nite

I'd never do it again tho, i've grown up a little bit and the liscence is pretty important
but if your gonna hit anything over 180 you might as well top out cuz if u get caught either way your ****ed

Believe it or not I got caught doing 190kmh on the 410 and the cop let me off with 115

Kurt Schneller 12-28-2003 08:26 PM

226km/h in 2.2l 320 wich is it's real top speed speedo was showing 230 something, M40 318i 200km/h on speedo with 4 people pretty much maxed out

btw howcome people with friggin M3 engines go only 240km/h in E30? I mean my 1.8 only puts out 85kw and guys in Z3's give me thumbs up on highway before pulling on me, hehe, maybe God has a reason I dont drive a M car

V-Thang 01-23-2004 05:15 PM

Back in August on the 401 comming back from a club in t.o (3am). 401 was empty like theres no 2morrow. had my cousin with me. hehe i was bored on the road so i gave the car gas and wanted to see what i can do. my virgin (i mean Vigor) lol weighs 3120lbs.

so i let her rip and start picking up speed... i glanced at the speedo and it was showing 205-210 (cant remember correctly). After that I took my foot off the pedal and slowed down... I was shitting about 100 bricks/sec because I was just thinking about cops lol.

I thank it all to the engine, 2.5L Inline 5cyl @176HP BONE STOCK! :D

97 Z3 2.8 01-23-2004 07:52 PM

212 up on Hwy 101 for about 5 mins. Top down and all- pretty fun, but not something to make a habit out of.

Boris The Blade 01-26-2004 03:20 AM

well, I've gone 173 mph with my dads ZX10 Ninja in 1995, I maxxed my Harley at 126 mph in 2001, and my little bitch of a 318I I hit approximately 125 on a LOOOOONNNGGGG AASSSSS highway. it took almost 1 min to hit. time for a bigger motor!

peace :cool:

Well i finally managed to do it!
I don't talk shit, i don't brag (a LOT), heres my proof, no photoshop, whatever that is with the speedo error, i dunno, but heres what it said on my car!
Gotta love that 401 W out towards the windsor area!
:cool:

(surprisingly enough, my car is chipped and go go to 7000RPM, and i don't think i woulda had a lot of trouble reachin that 7000rpm limit, i still had enough power to take me that far)

Sorry for the blurry pic, my friend is sorta retarded! He was too busy shittin his pants to focus the camera!
That says 220, just under 6000 rpm!

I'm actually curious now about the top speed of my car not that I got a software/chip. My redline has been raised to 7000rpm also (for now) and no speed governer. I'm gonna bring the GPS and laptop along with me to log my speed. Soldo, you have the stock 3.15 diff in your car right? With that, if you can get it to redline, and if you have 235/40/17 tires you can theorhetically hit 260km/h. But I don't think it'll pull to redline, I'm not even sure a stock US M3 will pull to redline in 5th (someone correct me on this)

I thought the exact same thing, but when i was at that speed, and rpm, my car was still pulling strong!
I don't think i have the 3.15, i dunno, in 5th, my tach and speedo needle move at the same pace and speed, so ya, theoretically, i should top out at around 263 ISH!
I've yet to hit that!
I belive i have the 2.9 something diff that came in most 325's!
And at the time of hittin 220 (i managed to reach 230, with ease mind you, but i only photographed 220, so thats why my proven record is) i had on my winters, which are 205/60/15, i believe thats it. All i knwo is that its the factory tire size!

5spd e36 325's have 3.15
328's have 2.93

My speedo and tach needles go at the same angle too in 5th and I have a 3.15.

NO WAY you got a 2.8L M52 motor to spin to 8000 RPM. The stock 2.8L motor runs out of breath about 6200 RPM; I highly doubt you can get another 1800 RPM out of it.

You *might* get to 7,000 RPM with that motor, but not beyond it.

Just how did you know you're running 8,000 RPM with that car?

Very true statement... got my 6 up to 240km and i was almost at top rpm, just had a little left... but had to slow down... other cars on the road at the time. But i could take my hands off and it would still go stright as an arrow... the only annoyance is the winshield wipers start shaking at about 200!

jimmyd1 02-06-2004 08:10 AM

140 mph, 144 by my speedo. Extremely scary, and stupid on my part because the H-3 Freeway is somewhat windy(25-35mph cross winds) and wet from constant rain. Car still had more to go though. BTW, car is highly modded 89 325i.

Get some wiper "wings" to create downforce on your wipers :D

But seriously, you should go to an automotive shop, they should sell some of those spring clips that you can install on the wiper arms to press them down firmer to the windshield. They really do help a lot!

I'm thinking the same thing, I don't think it's possible to hit 8000rpm without solid lifters, some beefy valves springs/retainers, and a very blueprinted engine. Even then, I don't think the m52's can injest enough air at that rpm.
