    This car gets to 110mph too easily and too quickly. I will accelerate for a passing move and the next thing you know, you are at 110mph. This is deceiving because the car does not make any noise to indicate you are at this speed, no wheel vibrations, just a rock solid connection to the ground.

          Any of you have a copy of my book? It'd be my pleasure to autograph it for you if we can figure out a way to get it to me and back to you.

          E30M3's - love 'em. BTW, that's mine on the cover of the book.

          Cheers,

          Fred,

              149ish through the potato fields in the Middle of Nowhere, Wisconsin.

              133 just before heavy braking for Canada Corner at Road America. I think I had a 20mph tail wind and took the KINK at 115. (yes, major pucker factor)

                        It was tuen 3 on the NASCAR track. Those high bank turns are not for the road race car. The suspension loaded all the way up. There used to be a huge bump in that corner. When you would hit it it with the loaded suspension, the car would go up the track towards the wall. :drive: You had to look out the drivers window to see the rest of the track. If you looked out the windshield you would run right into the wall. Then the track out at turn 4 right up to the wall was SCARY as hell too.:peekaboo: it would jump out and get you.

                          At Bruntingthorpe I hit 154mph on gps with over 300BHP. I had 17in wheels dogleg box euro diff and it was waaaay off the speedo. I did run out of room but it would nt have gone much more than that. Maybe 156MPH max.

                          With a 3.73 ratio E28 M5 diff does anybody know how fast it will go? (in theory of course)
                          I'm dropping the hammer!!!!!

                                I did around 130mph on the motorway last week. That is the fastest i have done so far. I don't usually drive at top speed, but just wanted to see what it was like. the car felt very solid and stable. I couldn't see no cars behind me :cheer2:
