Yup did it on the way up to F1 Boston Kart racing last night. Had already arrainged track time and I was running a bit late. wouldn't have done it on my own but some dude in a newer escort was driving like a madman so I used him as a radar detector. Fastest I've gone in my RES.

had a similar experience...was following a bunch of WRX owners after having stayed behind for a second to chat with some corvette guys. Well yeah...saw 110 thought to myself...okay if i get clocked that's 55 MPH OVER the posted limit...they'll just call the tow truck and cuff me...i then backed off and caught the WRX'ers at the exit we were going to.

Slow but steady wins the race

:D

Was caravanning to the last MidWest race and was travelling in a pack of about 15 scoobs doing 120-ish. Had to hold up and make sure a few of the slower cars we had following could keep up because of low rev limiters... lol. :)

Yeah. :p

115 seems to be about all the road I can find. I think that's about 5mph faster than the max-speed limiter in my '98 L.

Some people ride roller coasters for their thrills. :rolleyes:
We speed. We're bad bad people.

I've done 130 NA, 140 when turbo'd. Lemme tell you, when you get to those points, it's damn scary just because you're pushing so hard to get there.

In Washington I was able to do 120+, but since I moved back to Colorado, she barely wants to do 100. Got her to 110 down a hill.

ah... Well, I've gone faster in other cars but not in the Scooby. :)

Let's just say that we built a 920hp Vette for sanctioned open road racing that topped out at about 230mph and we had to test it somewhere...
