Default Your Top Speed?

How fast have you gotten your G to go and how long (distance & time) it took you?

I plan to push my G tomorrow and see how I can get her to go?!

Be careful since I assume you're talking about doing this on public roads. You can get one helluva ticket not to mention cause great harm to yourself, your car or maybe someone else.

I strongly suggest finding a track day, getting some instruction, and trying it on a closed course. It's much more relaxing to go high speed on a race track where you don't have to worry about opposing traffic or police.

312.3 kph, or 194 mph

Achieved at this event: Race the Base Ultimate Speed Challenge Event Presented by ZR Auto and the Canadian Forces - fantastic charity event, involving 1-mile head-to-head race, 2-mile top speed run, wet drifting course, and "Time Attack"Autocross course. What a blast!

I was still accelerating at the end of the 2 mile acceleration zone.

It was interesting to see, that in the exact same space allotted to all cars, my 2009 LP560 achieved a higher top end than any of the Ferrari 458s present. One guy (rhyno), with virtually a brand-new, just-driven-off-the-lot LP560, hit 318kph. I thought his engine would need to be broken in, more, but perhaps Lamborghini has done minor upgrades throughout the life cycle of the LP.

I was more than happy with 312kph!

In Hawaii 30 miles over the speed limit or 80 mph will get you 2 to 5 days in jail, it's a misdemeanor. So I won't be going very fast anytime soon.

150 mph in my 04 Heffner Gallardo. Not very fast. lol

I really don't drive all that fast anymore. For me I enjoy the short 30 to 130 bursts. I guess I'm getting old. I did a GPS verified 170 mph in my old 993 Turbo. Where I live we have a lot of lonely country roads so opposing traffic and police really aren't the issue. Deer are what we worry about!

What did you run?

330kph indicated on speedo.

A1 between Bologna and Modena.

I find getting to 120mph or so is a breeze, I've touched those speeds in town in what seemed like just a few seconds (rolling at 50mph or so and then pinning it), 150-160ish needs a good run but not long, and after that it sure takes a while for the speed to climb and any traffic will just kill it.

Besides, the twisties at 60-120mph is a hell of a lot more fun than 200 in a straight line.

Have fun!!!

Keep in mind, though, that the speedos on our cars are WILDLY optimistic. When I was going 312 kph, my speedo was reading just over 340kph (I WISH!! )

If you want a (very) reliable speedometer, get one of these:

Racelogic VBOX Performance Box Performance Meters from HorsepowerFreaks

The VBox read 311.5, when I ran the 312.3 at Race the Base. That's pretty accurate
