yea go solo if you going to reach them speeds and it would be best at night also and hey just by a parachute for next time lol its a jokeI took my 2.0 to 170 km/h, one day when I was being a complete idiot. That was completely unsafe. I was the only one on the two-lane highway and was in the left lane. I saw a Subaru getting on the highway. I thought he wouldn't come into my lane (seeing how there was no one else on the damn road). I was wrong. He must've been doing around a 100 km/h and I almost rear-ended him. Pressing the brakes as hard as I could without losing control resulted in my fiancee being launched forward to have the seat belt pull her back, slamming her head on the headrest.
Even though the moron cut me off for no reason, I was an idiot for driving at 170 km/h (105 mph), and planning to accelerate further. Our cars, while certainly capable of 200 km/h, are not designed to do it safely. Ive driven other cars at this speed on secluded, open roads with no one with me. At least I only put my own life at risk. I'll stay away from speed from now on.
My Car (2.4 SX Koup w/ 6 speed manual) totally chokes and pukes when I press too hard on the gas pedal after shifting in to 2nd gear in a racing situation!
This reminds me of the same issue I had with my 79 Z28 Camero back in the day. Too much gas and not enough air!
I'm going to buy a tuning chip to see if that corrects the problem unless someone has already tried that?
By the way it will burry the speedo! No not going down hill either.
Little RED Rockett!
And I still average 37 mpg
I'm just using the mileage numbers that the car tracks. I have not actually crunched the numbers independently. The salesman told me that one of the mileage numbers was based on city driving, ie: Driving in 1-4th gear and the second number is driving in 5-6th gear. Assuming that the salesman was correct, 5-6th gear is the number I was referring to and is the most accurate number I can lay claim too without crunching the numbers.
It does help that I drive 500+ miles a week and 90+% of them are freeway miles averaging speeds of 65mph in 6th gear. I do use Middle grade gas, skip gears when up shifting, draft behind larger vehicles and coast down most hills in neutral. All of those things can make a difference. The car has a little over 6000 miles on it at this point and that mpg number just jumped to 38 today.
I will check it at the next fill up and let you know if the computer is even close to the real number.
