My 2006 Mustnag GT auto had 430's in it and it would go 120 with ease and still had plenty of RPM to go but 135 once or twice was all I had the balls to go lol.

Lol. Mine kept going. But it started getting scary. Not a good idea to do it in the first place. In all honestly I thought it wouldn't make it that high. But it did. But now I know what it can do and that's all I need to know.

Do it on a road course and it's a completely different feeling. Me and a buddy consistently hit 150mph on a straightaway in his Shelby without any real worry about wrecking
