Admit it, you sometimes get the itch to floor the gas pedal when an opportunity presents itself. Whether you drive an unaltered stock model or are into souping up your wheels there's always the innate curiosity to see how far you can set your personal speed best. And get out of the experience alive in the process. Imagine yourself out there in the expressways or on a deserted provincial road. No visible hazards, the concrete or asphalt feels good beneath you, the weather is reasonably clear and your chariot is ready and primed to eat up the kilometers fast. Before you know it the speedometer is climbing, climbing, climbing.....100...120...130...140...150...160...170 and the tachometer is still far from red-lining.

Still plenty of clear road ahead.

So, how fast have you gone? Where? And with what? What went through you mind?

I'm really a safe driver. But when I get the chance to let it out I go for it. But I haven't really pushed it all out. I'm not in a contest or race with anyone; I just want to find out about and deal with the rush that comes with going fast. The most I've ever done was 150kph southbound on the newly paved NLE around midnight. I felt my Lynx could do more but I decided to save that for another time.

I'm sure one fifty is routine for a lot of drivers out there with better rigs so why don't you tell your story?

What's it like doing 200kph or higher? B)

There are lot of highway stretches around Luzon where you can go all out. Know of any?

I once went past 200 kmh. Car was a Lexus so I didn't really feel it.

I was vacationing in the U.S. a few years ago and was on my way to Miami on I-95 (or was it a turnpike? I forget). The needle was at 120 and it took me time to realize that was in mph, in a 75 mph zone no less. Still, I kept up with the herd, so to speak, and only slowed when the radar alerted us to the presence of a prowl car.

If you want to go really fast, drive on an autobahn, behind the wheel of a big German sedan. U.S. Interstates don't even make those cars breathe hard.

i went 198kmh (needle pointing on line before 200 mark) in my ford lynx on STAR highway (from batangas). the i felt i could have touched 200 if it werent for that stupid corolla swerving lanes!!! that was pretty scary :D

on a more reckless side :evil: i drove from manila to kalinga-apayao (about 450KM) in 6.5 hours :evil: normal travel time is 10-12 hours. pretty reckless and stupid i guess, but nonetheless fun.

i guess we all have our "road hazardous" behaviours from time to time, but escalating gas prices is taming be up a bit :) i rarely see 100kmh nowadays :cool:

just remember, drive defensively and responsibly :mtc:

On my Galant VR4 using the stock 4.9 gear ratio, 235 kph. but I switched ratio to 5.4 so top speed 210 lang pero mabilis dumating dun @ 18 psi boost.

Pero fastest I ran was 155 MPH using my Suzuki GSXR 1100 in palmdale california back in 1987. strong vibration at 120 mph ( 200 kph) but when I passed the 130 mph barrier everything smoothened out. Tunnel vision came in @ 135 mph. It was a trip.

Here in manila i was able to top 235kph with my galant VR4 AWD. Nothing notable to talk about as the skyway was pretty much free.

But fastest experience was in Palmdale California back in 1987 wherein I topped 155MPH using my Suzuki GSXR 1100.At 120 mph (200kph approx) the bike started to vibrate tremendously, common sense dictates to ease off but there was still 4000 of excess rpm available to pop, so I popped it some more and as I hit 135 mph the bike smoothened out and this is where the tunnel vision came in. I was able to hit 155 mph. Could push a little bit more till about 160 or 165 mph but I felt the tires heating up cause slippage started to come in from the rear so I backed off. let me tell you, it was a trip.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


180 kph on an Evo VI is very prudent.

Honda Civic ESi, 195 kph along Skyway. Would like to see how far I can go with the new engine, pero I don't think I'd like to go past 150 kph. Normal driving for me along highways is between 120-150 kph.

Hanggang 160 lang kinaya ng auto ko once sa skyway. Not much difference. Exhilarating cguro kung mga 200.

gone about 250 kmh during a bike trip through USA on a CBR600F2. Just remembered there is a lot of wind and you have to duck your head under the fairing. A lot of wind noise and I learned when you travel at high speeds for a long time you need to wear ear plugs. After trip my ears were ringing for a day or two. The high speed was not that exciting as I thought.
