I was just wondering if anyone got a top speed on thier car yet? sx and ex models. I've done 80 no problem, and today I went to 117mph (assumed because the speedometer goes by intervals of 5) it wasn't that bad, no insane shaking, just feel every little bump in the road. And before anyone starts flipping out how dangerous and all that other crap, keep it to ya self! This is a friendly post so no a-holes preaching!

Has anyone taken their car to the drag strip? It might not hit top speed but they give a printout of different things.

For me I am a bit pokey and maybe 75 or 80 on the interstate.

I have a 20 mile straight (mostly) stretch to my house. Sometimes when I come home late, and there is no one around (I live in the vacation part of Galveston Island so there is NEVER anyone around until summer)... I just floor it. I've gotten to 120 130 ish before I freaked out. It was windy that day so I could tell the wind was affecting my performance.

stock sx is 135 .. I know cause thats going down hill I did this last month at about 2am on a road where nobody was, Safe, no not really but (safer then trying on a major road close to a city) .. car has plenty of room left on the tach.. but there is a ignition block.. once it hits that it starts to hold the spark back.. kind of sad.

Need to reflash the computer to get the real top speed out of it.

I MIGHT see if my local dealer can reflash it to take that out.. maybe, maybe they wont.. BUT IF they do, Im gonna take my car to the Texas Mile and see how fast i can get it up to.

It pretty much would kill the warranty lol youre reprogramming the cars computer basically so EVERYTHING is affected.
