The bad thing about going very fast with a V6 is the gas consumption, you clearly see the gas gauge go down rapidly.
127... I was a passenger in a Police car. It was scary.

But then again, city driving, I barely get 13mpg in the winter.
went over the 180kph mark on the corolla 1zzfe Vvti for about 30 sec before running out of road and getting arrested by a cop. He let me go after talking for a while, I was scared shitless and never done any speeding ever again.
Got lucky that the cop didn't charge you with the 40km/h above the limit very high speed ticket that goes for thousands and lots of points lost. And dangerous driving ticket too.
[QUOTE=Dylan_94;34201265]I drove 100mph for the first time, yesterday night. It was pretty exciting, and made me want to ask this; [b]What is the fastest you guys have ever gone?[/b] I know 100mph isn't insanely fast, but it was damn fast to me. Plus the little civic was running out of steam, and i was running out of road.[/QUOTE] I personally have been 99.1 (according to my GPS) in my Dodge Colt that I used to have, three speed auto and that's all it had. Jap and I got the CRX up to... 113 or something before. And it had a lot of room left to go. Scary shit, though. This was boosting on like 3PSI at the time, haha.
150 in my own truck racing an srt-10 ram :D (got my ass stomped btw, he just walked past like i was still.)
My dad has a 5.7 lr Hemi Ram and it hauls fucking ass, i can't imagine an srt-8, let alone an srt-10...
Almost got t-boned today. I keep playing it over and over in my head, it feels almost unreal
[QUOTE=Glitch360;34203665]Almost got t-boned today. I keep playing it over and over in my head, it feels almost unreal[/QUOTE] I almost rear ended someone at 45 when they failed to signal or brake when taking a left. I overtook them like in GTA... Shit was scary as fuck. (there was another car in the right lane)
110 speedo goes to 120 but fuck that shit. Got my aunts civic up to 80, at which point it sounded like it was going to explode and the needle was crawling slow as fuck. Her civic uses more gas than my v6, come at me wolf
Shouldn't it use more oil than gas though?
It burns more blinker fluid than anything really.
I'm getting my first car soon, and my father says that it needs to have all the airbags modern cars do, be relatively cheap, and keep up with them, any help? (has to be a V6, according to stupid laws.)
My dad's friend owns two slightly older, but fantastically maintained BMWs. He has an E30 M3 and an e24 635csi (shark). He said he would let me drive both of them if I wanted to. I about nearly pooped my pants. I'm going over to his house next saturday
Think I went 130kmph in the field in my truck, once I put my foot down the throttle body really opens up and it constantly pulls till 3rd gear and about 3k rpm then I didn't go any further. If it had a 4 speed I could easily go much faster.

Why do you have to have airbags and ABS?
[QUOTE=Ldesu;34205291]Why do you have to have airbags and ABS?[/QUOTE] Because safety.
86mph driving my 4 cylinder 1.3. Would of gone faster but there was a very worrying amount of steering wheel judder. The was fully laden with passengers and mass camping gear. Someone else has maxxed my car out at 105mph. 130/40mph as a passenger (late for the ferry to France)
the fastest I ever went was 180km/h in my brothers pretty freshly jap imported supra, so it was limited to 180km/h.
My E30 hits the rev limiter hard at 235kmh/145mph, I really gotta get an M3 6-speed gearbox. Fastest I've been as a passenger was about 305kmh/190mph in a Gallardo.

[QUOTE=WubWubWompWomp;34206473]Because i'd prefer my head to be stopped by cushiony air, rather than glass and tarmac.[/QUOTE] You could, y'know, not drive like an idiot and wreck. Almost all accidents are avoidable if YOU be the responsible one and drive cautiously. There are some occasions you'll get into a little fender bender if you are trying really hard to be safe but that happens -- but high speed death-causing wrecks are generally avoided by having your focus on the road and vehicles around you. Cars have always been safe -- it's the people that operate them that we should be updating.
It's not even you. It's other people on the roads. Like when I got t-boned from someone who ran a stop sign. Nothing I could've done to prevent that and thankfully no one was in the passenger seat or they would've been seriously injured. I was once almost hit twice within 5 minutes because two cars cut me off so bad I had to slam on the brakes.
Cool thanks for the boxes. See you later guys. Gonna go build me a box fort.
My dad said he'll buy me a smart car, I said I'll put a [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLtMh20qIp8"]Hayabusa engine in it[/URL]. He's no longer buying me a smart car. ... I didn't even want a smart car.
