It's only because of the 7 speed and how nicely it keeps the revs up the whole time. The engine is weak and it shows at low rpm.

I can't wait to get some mods in there. I'm just curious how much of a difference they'll make. I'll find out pretty soon :)

:wtf:

thats fast for 270hp
7 speed :thumbup:



i havent maxed mine out yet, but was doing 165(kmh) on the way to sd racing a bike for a long while, it was kinda trafficky too

my car stock should do 182mph
but porsche are conservative with their #'s, i think the fastest stock carrera s hit 186

im aiming for 186, mine lowered (less drag) lighter wheels and no mufflers. im gonna take it el mirage dry lake bed and see what happens :dunno:

anyone wanna roll? :drive:

:wtf: their website says they don't allow aluminum wheels on the lake bed due to the corrosive nature of the surface (salt). :wtf:

dont trip, im sure they dont check.

if they do, we'll figure something out



im pretty sure you can max your car out there, i did 150 (kmh) on sepulveda in a slower car (e500)

a magazine (dont remember which 1) got a 996tt up to 19x (maxed out) out there

1.3 miles is plenty to top out there. this car hits 96mph stock in the 1/4 mile. It should be topped out by the 3/4 mark :dunno:

Which part of sepulveda did you hit 150kmh ( ;) ) on?

Gotcha. I remember seeing that Mobil gas station in my version of Gran Turismo 4 as well ;)

Intake/exhaust/tune and I'll be ready to run. Btw, I might just do the cats this weekend if we have enough time on Saturday.
