180 in the 1/4 mile!! But not in a Z06. :(

I did take a 165 MPH blast a couple of years ago with Chris Lee of CF outside of Boston. Scared the crapola out of me!! I looked at him and said, "You've impressed the hell out of me, now you can slow this SOB down!!" Had to clean my drawers after that ride.

The fastest that I have ever gone in a car was with my '02 Z just after the 500 mile break in......167MPH, it was still climbing, but I saw cars up ahead and shut it down. What amazed me, was how fast it got to that speed, especially with a "green engine"

The car handled great at that speed, although the front end felt a little light. The road was not the smoothest and was more curvvy than I remembered it in the past, at 100MPH less speed.

Just a little advice........take it easy with the car......it is not worth losing your license or worse......trying to find top speed on public roads. Here is a picture of my first Vette at age 18 on my way to a top speed run. I am lucky to be here today.

Did 175 in my modded '87 IROC. I shut her down before she topped out, the rear end lift scarred the HELL out of me.

I've had the Z to 155 or so, it was no big deal, felt nice and stable. The body wasn't makin weird noises or shaking or anything.

Did 185 mph in buddies 2001 M5. It has some Dinan mods and very fast. This was done just south of the Strip one Sunday morning last year.
