Top speed

Drove down to a wedding today. Got up to 115 before I looked down and realized I was in driveshaft explosion zone. Wondering what your top speeds are?

140 but I slowed when I started seeing traffic ahead. Long dead road.

Fastest I've been in both my v6 and GT has been about 105. I'm a slacked compared to u guys lol. I live in a big city and it's hard to find the traffic and cop free spaces long enough to do much over 100 for a few seconds. .

Use a GPS. Most GPS systems show the speed you are traveling

Just drove down to Austin and got it up to 115. Nice open and straight after the new rest area. My wife took it to 100 before.

Just checked the Android market and they don't. They should make one though.
