Smile How fast???

I had my sisters 2003 lighting a few weeks ago and got to 137 MPH.
It would'nt go any faster boost was all the way and tach was about 4000.
She took the her cover off the bed so I dont know if that would have helped.
Its bone stock no mods. Very scared of someone pulling out in front of me.
Anyone else get faster?

I'm sure this was on a closed course with a professional driver, right?

I had my stock 04 burried at 140 on the interstate early one morning with no traffic. I had the tonneau on, the antenna removed, and the mirrors pulled in. It's very scary to go that fast in a truck on an open highway!

I've been in my brother's not so stock porche gt2 on the same stretch of highway at close to 200mph and I felt very safe harnessed into the passenger seat with a roll cage wrapped around me except everything outside the car was a blurr!

Wink link

The link is in the word "Here". Which is blue. You may not be blind, you may just be color blind

I have had my 02 Harley at 140 with three other friends in the truck at the same time, just before melting the end of a spark plug off. 14 lbs of boost, that could have been costly!

So far, 151 by GPS and still climbing. I ran out of safe road to quickly, to top it out. Of course it isn't stock.

I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it...........154 on GPS with a couple 151's and 153's to back it up.

Box stock '04 Lightning that is "supposed" to top out at 147.

I will try to get a pic of the GPS shortly.

Would love to hear about your mods DOHC.

I got my Lightning up to about 130. Ran out of room.

I did get my Honda RC 51 (motorcycle) to 174 mph, and that wasn't so bad. The faster you go on 'em, the better they handle..

stock lightnings are governed at 142 m.p.h. once you get a chip it clears that.last year i was on the freeway cruisin with some friends(on the way to the track of course lol)turboed viper,sn95 mustang with procharger,caddilac sts and me lightning.we all nailed it and me and the viper started pulling then about 140 he started pulling me.i felt pretty good seing how i am driving a brick.anyway a couple times of that i let the caddie get ahead of me because his speedo goes to 170.and i still went by him and he was at 160.so i would say i was praboly around 165.
