buddy, if it way a 5.0 that mustang would of wiped his ass with you. Even a stang with a spring set can handle it's own against an E30 325E. He could off just blown you away in the staights

He was going up the 400 North (hit hwy 9 (davis dr.) and they caught him doing 250 and accelerating. He was going to Barrie National pines golf course. They didnt get him until he was on the 1st tee. hehehe

He got off and NO record of him speeding is on his perm. record.

Hope you get a couple breaks ........... GOOD LUCK !!
Talk about making a tee time! If the cops got him on the 1st tee I don't think they can do anything once he's on private property.

he had a good reason to speed to get to tee on time thats for sure is acceptable. all the road should clear for him and cops should be escorting to the golf course parking lot at least. ....lol ..

Both my cousin and his best friend has 1990 Mustang GT's (5.0L). They both complain about how horrible the car handles at speed, appearently they get twitchy (unstable) and hard to control once things get out of hand. I don't even want to imagine what it'd feel like at 240km/h+

What'd you do to keep the car on the road (as far as suspension setup)?

Yeah, once the air gets under the car at those speeds you gotta get the downforce going to keep it planted, otherwise, it goes into "kite" mode.

Nevermind downforce and suspension, what about GEARING??? HAHA, The stock 3.08 gears will top out around 250km/h in 5th gear... that record car I was talking about had a 6 speed transmission.

How much gas did your stang drink during that top end speed?
Almost ran out of gas

and the 197.7mph thing... i dun even wanna comment it. Do u even have time to look at the speedo when you're at THAT* speed?

*I really doubt that number

i know many of you have a hard time believing this, but just to let you know, the car was made for drag races. It punches out around 970hp.(with the mods that were made at the last minute) It doesn't even look like a stock 5.0L. I know many of you have a hard time believing this but I am not going to try to convience any of you into anything. My car reached this speed down Interstate 10. Now in this highway, you drive 4 hours when going to L.A there is a part of the highway that is just plain straight. Many people dared me to do it and it was all setup. All my friends helped on this project becuase we had to wait for the right time to run the car. We waited until the road got a empty as it could get and my friends helped with radios, radars, ho and I forgot to mention one of my friends as this artifact that can read the speed your car is making even, after you passed your speedometers limit. He told me the car was at 197.7 top speed and again, if any of you were oing to see the car, it does not even look like a stock 5.0 it's more like a baby 5.0L funny car and all of you know what those cars can do. Now, I know you are going to ask for pics but the only pic I have is form when it was still stock. Now, my dad took it from me and said that I was never driving that car again. He took it to our warehouse in Mexico, and that damn warehouse is the only place I don't have access to Sad to say, that was the fifth and last time I drove the car. Since I got it, it always spent it's time at the shop, getting ready for our project.

One thing that I would like to make clear to you guys. I know that many of you have a hard time believing what I said. My mechanic Jeff, he said one thing that I think you should know. He said that the GPS thing he used has a 50/50 percent chance of being right. He did say however, that IF the car didn't hit 197.7 like the GPS said. It at least hit, a good 180+ speed. Again I am not going to get into detail on the mods, as far as supsension, engine, aerodynamics, and things of that sort. For a good reason, The project was made secretly and me and my crew agreed not to talk about the mods and things that were done to the car. When we got caught, (and I was in court) the judge made me tell him the truth. Me and the crew were working on a web page and put the video of the stang on the web. When I told the judge my intentions. He said that all videos, pictures, sounds(even the cop cameras) were to be destroyed, he said he did not want any side benefiting from the event (which he labeled as insane). So there you have it. I admit it probably didn't hit 197 or 190 but hey that's what the GPS read and hey guys, I was happy, I mean imagine 197MPH. How would you feel if a damn GPS thing read that your car hit 197mph?

How convenient, a completely circular defense.

"I can't post any pictures of the car because the judge ordered me not to." "I can't tell you any of the mods, because my mechanic wants to keep it a secret."

Right....


More BS to cover up the BS in the initial story....doesn't the smell bother you after awhile?
