Ill have to see if i can get the video from a friend. He taped me doing a 5th gear pull almost to redline. Was up around 165mph @ near 7krpm. Passing a car going 70mph was like it wasnt even moving.
    Wow you guys are hardcore!

    i shouldnt do it again but now that i have a GPS im gonna have to see what speed i was really goin, last year i did a 17psi 5th gear pull to about 7000 rpms with my friend video taping(i know, not smart) then about a month later runnin 22psi i did a pull by myself to redline which was 79-8000 at that time

    ive got 225/65/15's all seasons which are quite a bit taller than stock, and now ive got about 100whp more than i had last year, i guess we will see soon

    here is the 7000 rpm run i did:

    LOL, Jeff?

    As for KA top speeds, I did the math once for a 7200rpm redline and I think it was in the 160-165 range. You need taller gearing to get much more out of it I think.

    you stopped for them or they caught up to you?

    I did 175 in my s13 SR and it was scary as sheet..car was floating bad, and I was moving between lanes inadvertently. This was with around 270 rwhp, and j30/z32 diff 245/40/17s..speed calc'd from RPM.

    I drove a bolt on supra to 180 before, and it felt much more stable. My z32 at 155 was a rock too..with stock suspension...just something about the s13 makes it scary at high speeds..maybe the aero, or lack thereof.

    wheelbase length and weight is most likely the reason.

    ive done 177ish a few times in scott's (enthalpy's) old s13, and the most disturbing thing about this, is the aerodynamics... like watching the door windows push out and oscillate. The car had no a/c or heat... but the two small openings for the heater core tubes... provided so much warm air that it felt like he had the air set on MAX.

    pretty wild..

    So... to bring this one back to life.... I got my S13 up to 163 yesterday... I about ****!! I didnt know how fast I was going at the time, it just felt like I was going to fly away. My head light were rocking sleepy eye when I got on the interstate... whe I got off the were looking stright up... the damn wind pulled them all the way open... I checked my commander while I was sitting at the red light and it said max was 263 .... I started trembling alittle... and then I thought..... I still have more to go.... gonna have to do it again!!

    Don't buy made in China products.... Don't buy overhyped JDM products either. Research and save your money in the long run.

    I logged a 6800 rpm pull in 6th once and didn't really know what that meant until i did the calc. with my bigassed tires it came out to 187.

    incidentally I heard a slight pop and when I stopped and looked my passenger fender liner was nowhere to be found.

    this was an S14 with S15 swap and 295/35/18s

    Wow risen from the dead.... I have forgot all this one.... I have since hit 174 on my S13 after tuning it.
