Export market TB have a 120 mph (192 km/h) speed limiter and that's faster than I want to go in one. With the experience of driving on German Autobahn, speed vs. time saved, 85 mph seem to be the ideal cruising speed. Even if the road is clear from other traffic, I have to push hard to save more time than just a few minutes. Driving very fast for a whole day feels similar to drink a gallon of Mountain Dew afterwards. If I want to drive faster, wherever it's okay to do so, I have other cars that are built for speed.

I CAN tell you my Garmin proves over & over & over &over again, Drive like H*ll! & you only gain a minute or 2. You might gain more if all the planets are aligned or something but just not worth the risk most of the time. No kidding........ Soapbox; Beating your ride all by yourself is one thing add a Passenger or worse a MORON in another lane could spell Death.... I have had the displeasure of seeing happen and then hands on experience in the aftermath of saving one Bud while watching the other Die. (While people watched & would not help) A horror you don't want to have live the rest of your life with so, You know I'm going to say it; Please slow down. Cripes I'm old! when did this happen

Ah, the thrill of doing something you're not supposed to in something that isn't supposed to do it.

I'm from Greece (Europe) and went to Germany 3 weeks ago to visit my parents. I have a 2005 TB LT w/22' and 265/35-22 Dunlop SportMaxx on it. I have the PCM tune and the speed limiter deleted. Right from my navi system I went up to 224km/h in the "cold" night at 10 degrees, 102 octane Shell fuel and very empty flat and straight german autobahn. The speedometer already stopped working ;o).

Kind regards.

Mike

Lol this thread reminds me of a time this past summer when I was driving up north on the highway.. I was going probobly 75 - 80.. a good rate of speed and then I look back and I see this guy on a motorcycle shooting up out of nowere and fly past me... keep in mind i was already going 80 and at the rate he came up to me and flew past me, he was ATLEAST going 115 +

I then thought to myself, that guys an Idiot hes going to crash... and then literally swear to god not even 60 seconds later I see the dude dump it and go sliding down the road with his bike in fifty peices

I know this is my first post .... However, there are those of us who are talented enough to pilot a vast array of vehicles past 80 mph. Why did I change my speed limiter ? 3 words Silver State Classic. Google it. I've kissed 198 in bonneville on my ninja. my vette saw 186 there also. my 240sx got clocked at 160 in the classic 3yrs ago.we're aiming for 130 avg speed in the TB this year with the new mods. So in closing, bash the street racers all you want BUT some of us are actually doing this legally.

Now I am German, and I drove cars (BMW) as fast as about 235 km/h (146mp/h) without a problem.
But I would NEVER use an SUV to go this fast.
You Mike and everybody else that tries to go this fast as you said, is a reckless driver in my eyes.

Did you ever think about what happens when you have to avoid someone that is on the same lane as you are? Specially at night when you can't see one kilometer ahead of you.
There are always people that for some reason have broken lights or there lights can't be seen from far away.

By the way, normal tires as you probably have them on your TB are not made for cold weather, so you would have had problems braking as well.

You Mike are just reckless without keeping in mind that driving a vehicle is not a right its a privilege.

Sorry for your lost, but it's not the speed that kills, is the reckless driver that uses this speed while not thinking about there consequences.
There are quite a lot of cars, not SUV's that can be handled at any speed they can make. I don't think SUV's should be driven this fast unless it's a live and dead situation.

I've accidently hit 120+ in my SS several times as its very easy to do, and since the frame sits closer to the ground than most lowered cars, it doesnt handle anything like an SUV. $3k in suspension mods tend to do that

But the 03 I don't see a need for anything over 80.
