I'll try to send picks next week.
As for a wave file, I might know some one who can help me.
I won't diss any one's preference or impression.

impossible...your car is speed governed by the ecu. the speedo lies. and there's no glory going that fast on public roads. it's stupid and pointless.

1- My tire size was 205/50R15
2- The date was November 59F "ISA" dry day.
3- 93 octane and Denso Iridium plugs.
4- There is not a speed based fuel cut off on that car, just the rev limiter 8300rpm The previous owner may have chiped it I don't know.
5- No NOS
6-2 people on 2 seperate ocations can confirm my speed.
7-I/H/E you know about
8-The SI have a 145mph spedo
9- With that setup I got a 100mph ticket and I know he was right.
I will accept that at the limit of the spedo there will be some inaccuracy.

The Highway was empty. and it was a calculated risk.
When you fly anywhere there is a calculated risk.
The Flight crew take a risk when taking off. There is a risk that the aircraft will not reach take off decision speed befor it crosses the 3000ft mark at the other end of the runway. at which point they calculate that they can stop the aircraft in the remaining space.
So my accomplishment was not pointless, not reckless.
This is a performance sport. we are constantly working to improove our performance envelope. so I have provided a parts list for a setup and a weather condition whish resulted in me being able to take a calculated risk in exploring the larger performance envelope that I had developed in the car.
I wanted to know if the car could reach the max speed in a real environment.
IT did. That was my point.
"Pointless" That is your opinion and I respect it.

I do not advise recklessly careaning threw conjested traffic.
Find a venue where you can safely do it.
I don't know if a place with a 2 mile streight in the south east.

you do not have enough power to move an almost 3000lb car that fast. it is physically impossible w/ a bone stock motor. you can blah blah all you want on the internet, but all the true tuners on here know it is physically impossible. the fastest you probably went was 120mph....but that is still stupid to do even though you're on an empty highway. if you hit a small imperfection on the road w/ that small tire size you're a goner. if you do survive, how will you explain the accident? since the highway is empty, will you be discovered in time?

at the track where these speeds are okay, at least there are emergency personelle on site and they can get to you in less than 10 minutes after you crash.

if you don't like it, then get out of this forum. we dont tolerate illegal crap here

I thought of alott of ways to anser you.
The True tuner bit is cute.

I respect the desire to encurrage the movement off the street;
and I belive in that.

Take the best in what we both have presented, and persue your project in safty and sucess.
