Cool story bro :rolleyes:

Really though, 125ish on speedo, so probably 117. (stunt was done on a closed course, by trained professionals. Please do not try this at home.. etc etc.)

Yeah these things are light. Over 120 would be hairy. Let me know how it goes.

If you like terminal speed, you purchased the wrong car. Seriously, it's not even fun at 100+, it's a corner carver, and that's just the way it is. I'm an absolute hot-foot, and I've never even been tempted to top the car out.

I hear you brother, I mostly like to rip up Kings Mtn as fast as I can, just wondering what the top speed is, don't plan on driving around 120 everywhere, though I did hit 95 on El Camino 3 nights ago:nanner:just for a second:shrug:

Oh, dude, be careful on King's Mountain. When the weather is nice, there are tons of cyclists and lots of blind corners. I love to carve twisties in my Elise, and I live to cycle on Kings Mtn road, and given what I've seen on that road, I dare not drive my car fast there.

beware of stock civics when your driving ur lotus they will take you after 80mph.

I was at the track and I had an si next to me lined up...he ran a 14.7 and I ran a 17.8 in the elise...thats what made me buy the civic....I needed a fast car.

dont get me started on the 16 sec benz

I hear you. I usually rip Kings at night on weekdays, the road is empty. That road is infested with cyclists wearing colorful spandex on the weekends.:coolnana:
I go really slow on the weekends, just cruise with the wind in my hair.
