Governor @ 158mph Boooooooo

Ok im sure ill get flamed for this but i really dont care those that know me know I live my life on the edge everyday so keep your comments to yourself if you have nothing nice to say!!

(THis was done on a closed course do not try this at home)

OK here it goes...

I had the cruise control set a 95 mph and i was catching him.. I was like damb this guy is cruising too right on
so after about 20 min of being on a 4lane highway with NOONE on it i finally caught him and as soon I did that fool took off.. remember were already crusing 95/100 at this point. I was in 6th gear so I dropped it In 4th and caught him right away. we pulled to about 130 and he let off i was like half a car length behind him when i saw his car let off..
we cruised back down to about 90 and we had a HUGE downhilll coming I knew this guy was going to try and ditch me but the wasnt happening!
Were doing 90 he hits his lights 3 times and we both jump!! I jumped him a car length right away and started pulling him to about 130 and then we were side by side and I realized this guy was PISSED.. He started pulling me at 140 a car lenghth i was a whole car lenghth behind him till 150 then he pulled another car on me I was like fuck so I slammed it in 6th gear and as soon as it hit almost 160 the governor kicked in... It was like DEAD THROTTLE...I could keep my foot floored and he throttle would come back on as soon i hit 158. that guy must of went to 180 he pulled me 10 cars at least!
Damb vettes got top end like crazy!!!
Just thought id share Im PISSED OFF my car maxed out at 158 i really thought it would go faster!

I'm going to assume based on his next to last sentence that it was a C6 Corvette. Even a stock level they are beasts on the highway, do some mods and they become full blown hellhounds.

There are no limiters on the top end, your biggest enemy is air resistance and having the HP to push through it.

ADHD: want the PROcede gov. defeat I presume?

I met a vette just yesterday! Not racing head to head but just playing around and yea I'm sure they're lightning fast, got nothing on them. Don't think the one I saw was a Z06, it had "Corvette" written in black across the rear. At one point I had an opportunity to switch lanes and gun it (wide open) but the vette was behind me in that lane and he gunned it and I was literally afraid to make the lane switch cos he was flying. Typically I'd switch lanes with confidence when any other car is on the road but not that guy... his tailpipes had white smoke coming out.

You can If you have money for a well equipped 335i, the vette isn't that much more unless you are talking the Z06.........but after a day or so in that car you will miss your 335i, because other than at speeds of 140MPH, the 335i will keep up and the vette will not be NEARLY as nice to drive and as comfortable.

I beg to differ.

No bullshit but it cruises on the highway better than my 330. Even my wife will admit to that and she is NOT a "car person".

lmao!!! thats funny ya i dont think i wouldve pulled out in front of him either!

its one thing nowing your car is extremly faster than others but when your pulling out in front of a car thats just as fast u better be ready for an ass wooping or get teh fuck going!

this was done with procede 1.45:rocks: :rocks:

It sounds like a new 07, the 08's won't be out for a couple of months.

I'm sure that's part of it.

+1. You gotta work you're way up to that. Mine isn't quite at Z06 level(yet) and it's scared the crap out of me once or twice already and I've been driving for 20+ years.

so what is your rpm in 6th when you hit the governor?

Last time i took my car up that high....over 140mph it was north of 5000 rpm...the gearing is so short I wonder if you'd max it at just over 160mph...
