A friend of mine just purchased a 98 Corvette C5 with exhaust and Cold air intake. <br>He was so confident that his car would kill me, but I convinced him to go for a raced on the highway, as I knew that from a dead stop he would kill me.<br>We went on an empty highway, and we raced from 40 mph to 130 mph. This was in a controlled environment.<br>He was so over confident, and as soon as we floored it my car jumped 1/4 car ahead of him, and it kept pulling; by the time we were done I was about 2 cars ahead... It was GREAT!!!!!!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Patently impossible.

I agree with you guys, I believe more realistic number would be around 105 mph, but those are the numbers the Gtech is giving me, so I am sticking to it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">....<br>I got those numbers running on concrete at about 40 degrees<br>Hopefully I will be able to make it to the track this year.<br>Also a S70 T5 is faster then a 850 T5R at highway speeds...
