Alright, not talking about 1/4 mile quickness here.. honestly I suck in my reaction and don't want to abuse my car anyways ... but I do bounce a BSR 158 (as seen on the speedo) limiter. stock tires 205 55 16 = 24.9 OD" , hit this with both 215 45 18 = 25.6" and 235 40 18 = 25.4" , the first one puts me about 5 mph higher at shown mph! so we're looking at 162-163 mph at a limiter!! <p>just wanted to know if anyone has gone faster in his/her S40/V50 (besides Odin race car, that's gone a few mph faster 170ish) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Re: Fastest S40/V50... is it me? (V50_T5)

I've gone like 205 against an Aston Martin DBS. I just floored it. True story.<br>The End.<p>I think you are the fastest one that posts on here, although if I heard correctly there are a few S40s with turbo upgrades out there so I think they might get there faster and possibly beat ya. But they are no shows on here so I crown you champion, until someone comes along and tells me otherwise.<br>However, enjoy your glory while it lasts, as I too have plans to become lightning fast as soon as my wallet says I can. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (kpsingh0)

I bet I could get to 168 mph if you dropped my car out of a plane at 30,000 ft... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (NorthernS40)

ive done 155mph before (260kph on speedo, 250 on GPS). that was before FMIC and increasing to 3 inch downpipe, so maybe could possibly squeeze a few mph more out of the car.

He will probably win as none of us have open stretch of freeway with no speed limit to go that fast without getting a free ride over to prison to meet buba for a shower <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> lol<p>I got up to 140mph from 60 in a matter of seconds in my track car, no big deal <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Fastest S40/V50... is it me? (ForceFed Motorsports)

OK... I admit , I do have the advantage of going this fast w/o worrying about landing in places where if your soap drops ... it's best to leave it there. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> , <p>Love to give up my crown... ASAP , but even here with the Autobahn in Germany , only 2% of all s40/v50s are T5s , on top of that less than 1 % volvo owners, mod them. I'm the fastest here. <p><br> something like ATPs GT 3076 kit should have enough power to pull 180-184 mph (with correct motor management ecu)<BR><BR>

Re: (Mistral)

Mistral.. based on your similar (better) mods and lighter weight you should be a tad faster... I bet you could hit 165! <p>let me know! but don't kill yourself trying , I'm so used to doing 145 mph + ( I do it every day) that I drink coffee at these speeds . <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

Re: (V50_T5)

Hehheh... Where do you do that? I was just in Germany last week, drove from München to Werneck using lots of Autobahns but there were never room to do anything more than 160 kmh or so. Not that I wanted to with the 1.8 rental Civic... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I'm planning to visit Germany again in the future, this time in my own T5. No other mods than BSR but I guess mine should not be a lot slower than yours. Well, I assume I would be able to hit the 250 kmh limiter at least. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (FinnSpeed)

FinnSpeed, on the way to work from Wuerzburg to Schweinfurt on the A7. if the sub 250 km/h drviers get in your way even for a fraction of a sec... do as the Germans do ... left turn signal! and flash lights like crazy <p>this is a nice way of saying ... "you're fast... but I'm faster... please move", most Germans respect this <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>this is also why I feel safer doing 160 mph on the <I>Autobahn</I> , than 55 mph on say I-95 in the states <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (V50_T5)

Würzburg and Schweinfurt... I happened to visit both during that week. Würzburg has always been beautiful, especially the old town and now Schweinfurt has been seriously cleaned up. Very nice.<p>I'm seriously considering moving there (in that area) in the future when my kids finish high school here.<p>Yep, the Civic was not too bad but too slow to use the leftmost lane. I missed my Volvo. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
