130 indicated pretty near redline in my 91 with 5psi
135 in 95 volvo 850 turbo

120 indicated in my dads 86 260,000 or more mile volvo 240 non turbo wagon with pushbutton overdrive and no fuking tach on the way to palm springs. im not sure because it has been a decade or so but I think that was the end of the speedo

(either the speedo was a bit off, or the damn near hurricane force tailwind was helping me, or both)

So how steep a descent were you making? ;-)

(The high speed portion of my flight was about 100 NM West of Incheon at 10K feet, level and lovin' it.)

135 when I let off (playing with a turbo vw on a wide open 8 lane hwy) there's def no speed limiter - it was happy to go faster but the vw gave up. Amusingly enough the ecu seems to record the speed/time when you throw a misfire (Bell was surprised to find a Misfire recorded @> 100mph in the ecu when they tuned the car at the gap :-) The car actually feels more planted at high speeds (downforce was not a prob - only have the SE lip,no rear sp). Don't run that fast anymore - too much enforcement & too much to lose

Actually we had to throttle back because we were at the max speed for that alt, and we were flying straight and level!

Fastest with the Miata is not very fast. Around 100mph on track, because I have only driven it in the US. But my BMW hits the rev limiter on 5th at about 230km/h. German Autobahn FTW!! Fastest I have driven was an indicated 275km/h in my friends Nissan 300ZX twin turbo.

Our new company cars (Audi A6) are electronically limited to 250km/h.

In my old N/A NA I hit an indicated 128mph drafting a mk1 mr2 downhill on a long strech of highway.


In other cars, I've gone faster.
