111 on my handheld GPS... (generally) stock 914/6.

Won't do it again. Testosterone poisoning is a terrible way to die.

We don't have a speedometer in the track car. (about 6000 RPM in 5th)
Road America down hill before braking for turn 5. Car has a one of a kind home-made tail. Stable at speed. (Click on the 3.2 Race car in my sig.)


The street car has never exceeded the posted speed limit (that you know about).

155 and still pulling hard, 320 hp WRX engine, no wing, gt flares. I can say with all certainty that these cars were never designed to attain that kind of speed. Rear felt pretty squirrelly and traction was fading fast. tires were good for another 10 mph but i was already testing my luck as it was.

Halfway down the straight at California Speedway I hit the rev limiter. With my gearing and tires that's 132mph. Car feels totally stable until part way through T1 I have to let it breathe.

Hell, I had my dad's '58 Chevy 348-cube Delray up to 110 on the Palmetto Bypass (Miami) in 1960 or 61. AND noticed when I got it home that one of the tires was through to the cord! Sometimes the lord doesn't want you to die of testosterone poisoning--even when you're 17 and have LOTS of it. (I later drove it to Sebring with a high school buddy to see the '62 race) At 62 (years, not mph) now, I could no doubt do better than 110 in this antique car in my driveway. No bald tires on it. Nor me, yet--further proof that the lord watches out for me. And wait till I get a Jake kit!

My Mustang drifts around at about 160 with the top down, with the top up it starts to drift around at 165. Still lots left but I am a wimp...

My 914 hasn't been able to pass my truck in 14 years. Thank god cause every time she has been on the road she was strapped to a trailer... LOL
