We all know what are cars are capable of in short bursts, out of site of gordon Browns scamera van revenue raisers, but how many here have done a sustained burst of high speed driving in the UK?
As a lot of former Fchatters here know, we (I:grin: ) have a bit of a reputation over here in cowboy country for"enthusiastic driving sessions":smiley:
Post here providing you have witnesses who can verify if needed (or if not who cares:grin: :grin: ).
We have recorded over here on my car 2 runs with the speedo needle actually lodged on the stop bar on the gauge (320kph), several runs of 185-190+ (including me & 2 others hooning about resulting in our two fcars being overtaken at 190 by our mates gallardo @195)
I know Tea **** has recorded similar speeds on his personal racetrack (known as the "A34xxxx" something or other).
Anything under 150 don't count:thumbsdow

If you read the handbook there's 6 gears going forward on the 360, makes a world of difference:grin:

But anyway i know you were only joking when you asked about how fast we go in the UK:grin: :grin: You are a kidder dude:grin: :grin: Personaly i dont go over 71mph at all, what so ever....ever:thumbsup:

I agree with your post wholeheartedly! It might be misconstrued if one was to post an actual pic!!!:wink3: :wink3: :wink3:

As for speeding, Chaa's right, and a most responsible chap!:thumbsup:

BTW Chaa, have you still got that 6 inch nail buried in your speedo, the one that stops the needle going all the way round??:grin: :grin: :grin:

No speedo pics matey, just two high speed witnesses playing tag down the road with me (you know who I mean!! The usual two desperados).:grin:
On a bad note Steve sold his Gallardo on monday:cry3: so we're one car down until he gets a replacement:thumbsdow
On a more positive note that means the B*****d won't be overtaking me at 190+:thumbsup:
I've tried taking pics on my phone but the image is crap and out of focus at night, and its not much fun at that speed trying to alter phone settings so I don't bother:wink3:

And quite right. I only did these speeds on a rolling road at the back of my garage officer (honest).
On a more serious note, please make sure no one posts pics as we did have an issue on the other side with this.

160 in a 456 GTA at Bruntingthorpe last year. Just changed into 4th and still pulling strong but ran out of room :thumbsdow

Back there on Sunday with the Pistonheads boys in the Exige (a piffling 143) but one of the fastest around the bends :thumbsup:
