    I'm so sad, yesterday I found out my truck is limited to a top speed of 94 mph. Sigh, it's a shame. It was still charging too. What I want to know now is the fasted you've ever gone in a vehicle, planes don't count but bikes do i think.

    I've topped out at 120 in an old dodge. Sure there are a lot faster than that though.

    I'm going 118-119mph every time I do a 1/4mile :).

    I'm not sure what it'd top out at, on the dyno they were getting 155mph in third gear.

    You mean you've never tried to go flat-out in it? What about a top speed competition?

    Nope, and honestly don't plan on it. My speedo doesn't go that high anyway, lol. Remember, it's a truck and was never designed for any of this. Aerodynamics and weight are not my friend.

    120+ in a 68 impala with a 396 in it. The speedo was pegged out and when you left off the gas it took awhile for it to come down. I live in Houston now and havent had the tahoe over 60.
