3.90s at 5000 rpms in 5th gear. However fast that is. On stock suspension. Not smart if I might add that

I would like to explain that I only went 140 to put a vette in his place. I would not do it normally.

Very nice to all of you. According to my math assuming you did 3.9 on a quarter mile that is 208 mph. But I could be totally wrong about that.

It is a necessity to go 140 when beating a corvette.

What are you talking about. I was on a deserted highway coming home from British Columbia. And honestly I wouldn't do it again on stock suspension

You Said 3.9 seconds and on a quarter mile that is 208 mph I believe.

Throttle back I mean just lift off the gas and not go faster.

Re: Top speed?

I've hit 130 a couple times, there was plenty left although I'm sure it's electronically limited not much above 140...

Don't know. I drove it home when we bought it, and my dad was behind me, we went for a ride later, and I didn't get on it that much, I'd say about 70 mph because it was on my road and I was coming up to my driveway. And my speedometer doesn't work. Lol

How does the suspension effect speed or I mean as mentioned before that someone wouldn't go that fast with stock suspension, what would a different suspension do and what would you change from stock to the desired setup?
