well today while driving down the interstate, i decided to see how fast i could get the ole 2-Point up to. much to my suprise, i got it up to 120 MPH before i had to shut her down for upcoming traffic. sure it took a little while to build up some steam, but i was impressed with the ole girl nonetheless. just thought i'd share...

At around 120 the rpms are around 5300, if I remember correctly. And the car will then leave the ground and breakup on re-entry, if I remember correctly.

Nothing like drunken rosey cheeks that scream out in gayness.

Top speed for me...135 on blown turbo and room to spare...except that cop sitting behind the bridge :evil: At that speed, I was worried about my tires blowing on me, and I had lost Shane by 1/2 mile, that was my goal :)

yea i would think i was around the 5300-5500 RPM range, but i really wasn't looking, i was too worried about not flying off the road. she definately had a little more in her too. the stretch of road was maybe a mile from where i got on the highway to where i had to slow down, and it was a little uphill...she rode quite smooth too, and i was rocking the new alloys too, and luckily they were still balanced ! :D

My 1.8 only goes up to 120something. Or at least that what it says. I stopped at 110, around the 5,000 RPM range. Too much history with the cops to want to go any further :x .

I ran my jetta up to 6000 RPM at 143... Great for a 2.0 if you ask me.
