90, but i have driven 166ish. that was a amazing feeling.

Edit: full stage 3, and on the bottle, should have never sold her.

90 is the fastest I've gone. It starts to get pretty uncomfortable around 80-85 in a lifted Jeep.

98 once, to test out its max speed. I could've pushed it just a bit more, but at that speed on a straight line I was scared to death. Not something worth doing. Sometimes when passing I get up to 85. Gah, but I hate it when people speed up as you try to pass their slow butts. I drive below the speed limit most of the time because I get abysmal gas mileage as it is. So when you're going 68 and you have to pass people...

Anyway, 98 with 235's. I don't know if I could get it to 98 with the 30's. It's got a lot less power. I can't imagine running 31's. Geeze. I6 = I got nothin'!

i was gonna make one of these threads lol

in my wj i race everyone that thinks there fast on the highway

ive hit about 113 in it, give or take a few, but in reality its probably closer to 105 for speedo error

it was totally stable going straight, problem is the turns lol

i feel like ive almost flipped it about 4 times

now everywhere i go i learn the right speed for turns so i dont screw up haha

cant wait to my engine blows so i can totally rebuild it LOL

then supercharger, cams headers intake exhaust performance everything, bored out cylinders just everything

its gonna be the ultimate sleeper

the zj i've had to 95 and it was sketchy to say the least....

had the red-ish one up to 90 and it was scarier than ****, too much stuff wrong with that things front end lol, including my first attempt at custom paint
and the silver one had up to 115, now that was a fun car. near my house theres a set of 4 roundabouts in a row, had the ol silver bullet up to 60 weaving in and out, gotta love performance suspensions still miss that car

when i was with my dad driving, he took it up to 160km (about 100mph) through some straightaways after we were stuck behind some slow ppl for a really long time on a 2 lane highway.

But I'm not lifted.. I wouldn't want to push it very hard if I get anything more then 2"

tbh only twice, one of them was a new gt-r but that wasnt fair LOL

the other one was a bmw 535

i know its not a race machine but highway driving is way different then driving straight up like on a 1/4 mile

i usually cruise around like 80 maybe 75

when someone is passing theyre going too fast, so i go after them, pass them and dont let them pass me again

im gonna start recording when i drive because i miss way too much good stuff, ive beaten all kinds of cars man, old muscle cars, ricers, a tahoe SS, a lexus is350, a gti, monte carlo ss, a sexy looking volvo, a new tl type S, a bunch of kids from my school haha

its the driver not the car when it comes to high way, unless theres alot of turns then my jeep sucks haha
