What's the fastest you've ever been?

Post  iiDangerCloseBK on Sun Jan 20, 2013 11:16 pm

Driving and passenger? What car and where and how fast?

Fastest I ever drove myself was 110mph in a BMW 325, I was on my way to work at Road Atlanta and found a z4 and another 325, we just started cruising at 110 for almost 10 miles. Keep in mind this was almost 6 AM and no one was on the road, and we were all going to the same location.

Now I've been faster but I wasn't driving. Friend of my parents has an Audi R8 that he took me for a joy ride. Went about 120 weaving through Atlanta traffic and then got to about 150-155 once we exited the city. I fucking loved that car!

I'm interested in what you guys have done?

That registered on the speedo? 120 in my '70 Buick LeSabre. And this was in 2000 that I did that. So 30 year old car, going that fast. Fun stuff.

However, I got a NASCAR driving experience as a Christmas gift a couple years ago and I got to run at the Milwaukee Mile. No clue how fast the car went, I was told I had the fastest car that they had available, and I still wanted to go faster.

I've personally driven my 90 Mustang, when it had its 5.0, to just over 140, not the brightest thing I've done, but oh well.

Passenger, I've been to about 160, but it was there and then back off, not sustained. That was in a Cobra kit car that had a 428 CJ, that thing was probably the fastest car I've ever been in; 500+ HP in something that weighs 2200 lbs. rediculous.

Chronologically from top to bottom, numbered by speed.
5) 115 in my step-mom's '92 Corvette. My dad was driving, a friend of mine was in the passenger seat, I was in back under the hatch.
1) 150+ sustained in a Ferrari 308 GTB.
2) 140 in my '69 Corvette (driving)
4) 120 in my '83 GTI (driving)
3) 125 in my '94 Miata (driving)

Edit- I forgot my fastest. How could I have done that? One of my uncles works on Ferraris. Anyway, he had a customer who sent their car to northern CA (by the NV & OR borders) to be painted. The painter picked us up in his personal car in Walnut Creek at 10pm and drove us through the night to the Goose Lake area.

We arrived at the paint shop and it was about time my uncle and I drove back. My uncle said, "This first section is about 160 miles and I like to get through it in an hour." We had to pass through school and residential zones and we made his desired mark. He drove the first and third legs. I drove most of I-80 re-entering CA (we clipped NV) and all but the last 20 miles to his shop. Noteworthy: we hit a low flying bird while at speed. We didn't stop and check immediately though we checked the front valance when we stopped for lunch and didn't notice anything.

My uncle was glad I was 19. He made a similar trip with another guy a year before and the guy was 17. My uncle got pulled over and was cited with endangering a minor.

Yeah, it's too bad for me lol... But, still, I got to do it so that was slick. Again not sure the speed, probably 100 or so? Oh well, the Rusty Wallace thing looks like fun bounce

I did the stockcar experience at Pocono last year. As a passenger we hit 165mph, when I was driving they kept us to 150mph.

108 in the '00 Sebring, my '05 Ram, and the g/f's 05' Neon. (Damn governors...)

Depending on how much the stockcar experience is, If I had to pay in the thousands to go 100mph I would be mad. You can easily rent supercars for a couple hundred bucks a day.

Fastest Ive been surprisingly isnt in the low 11sec Pro Street Dart from HS but actually in my current 2001 Dodge 2500. The Hypertech allowed for a speed limiter increase to 128 and on my way home from the NASWI base in Washington I was headed to Oregon just south of Tacoma and there was a decent stretch where I crested a hill at around 120 and at the bottom hit the limiter once. Not to shabby for a 3/4 ton truck running 33s and only a chipped Magnum 360 I must say! Freakin dumb as all hell in hindsight though. I-5 on a weekday around noon....

Oh, yeah, I'm old enough to do that now! Woohoo! Viper's are cheap (comparatively) at the places in Dallas and Houston.

Cars owned and driven by me.

66 Corvair Monza 115 mph
02 Pontiac Bonnie V6 115 mph 4200rpm, damn limiter could of run 135-140 guessing how it was pulling. (Current car)
My Kawasaki Z900 145 mph 10,500 rpm, faster in fourth gear than fifth.

Ride along 69 SS 396 Camaro 145 mph, racing his brothers 454 69 Vette (made me really nervous not driving)

Nascar driving experience Kansas Speedway 1.5 mi track, average lap speed 133 (Straights I'd guess to be 150)

On a closed course I'd drive anything to its redline. Public highways, no thanks to many dumbass drivers way to much risk and liability.

There was nothing frustrating about driving a racecar. I will say this, I have a great deal of respect for speed and physics. Sure, I would have loved to push that car to it's limit, however never being to a limit so high, I'm sure if I had I would have wrecked. Professional drivers make it look easy. I consider myself an above average driver, but I'm no pro. No regrets because I kept my gap exactly as instructed and went as fast as they would allow me to.
