Was there something inappropriate about starting a pole regarding top speed driven in your R - that the post was removed from the site?????

Re: (97GLTbrick)

The first time I robbed a bank in The R I was involved in a 6 state chase where I hit speeds in excess of 120 through many school zones. Oh and dont get me started on the many red lights I drove through during my crime spree. This thread will last another hour or so, just like the last one.

Re: (TWBarrett)

I once hit terminal velocity in my car which was about 200mph. <p>This happened when I punched threw the guard rail on a twisty mountain road from which the car free fell for some 4000 feet. <p>All I can say is, thank you Jesus for Volvo safety.<p><br>Or version 2:<br>As the car left the road heading toward the cliff, I ejected myself out the door. I flew off the cliff as did my car but miraculously was able to grab onto a few small branches. These branches saved me yet also gave me a great view of my car, as it plummeted to its death some 4000 feet below.

Re: Top Speed (Jeremy7o2)

To find the theoretical top speed in your R. All you have to do is a little math... Here let me help: <p>In 6th gear find an area safe and where posted speed limits will not be broken. If you do this correctly you should not exceed 60 MPH +-<p>Take the total RPMs the R is capable of 6800 (Redline) and divide by 3:<p>Hopefully we all got 2,267 if you rounded up to the next whole number <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>If you would like to know the Rs top speed if it could run to redline in 6th gear:<p>Go to - 2,267 RPM in 6th gear and note the speed @ that RPM: Take that speed and multiply by 3. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>No one has stated that they have pushed it as far as it will go but due to SS rules, I won't mention how fast I know an R has gone. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
