anyone know what speed 5th and 6th gear top out at?? I'd do it... but I'd end up arrested... and frankly... um... no.
Im with you on this one. No point of doing these things on public roads anymore for me. Ive done my share of stupidity.

146 couple of times before the supercharger.

it's a sign....im getting old.

Took my old '00 S2 up to 150 with the top down. Everything stock. Did it on a brand-new built highway just north of Oshkosh. Thought my hair was going to get torn from my scalp. Open road, no trafic, no medians or on-ramps for cops to hide, just smooth road. Car felt like a rock, even when going around a slight turn, but it held speed well. Couldn't go any faster due to a couple of pokies blocking both lanes. I haven't really tried topping it out with the top up. Noise is a problem if you are trying to have a conversation or listen to the radio anywhere over 90.
And no I didn't wreck it. I just traded it in for an '03. I think Honda softened the '04s on up a little too much. . . . And I LOVE that 9000 RPM redline!!!!

They suck!!! Unfortunately not only the roads in Athens and all the other big cities are like bombed, the highways and national roads in some parts don't even have bariccades inbetween the two opposite direction lanes...All those in charge of the roads should be :bash
Many get killed under these circumstances for no other reason but the bad asphalt and the gaps,holes on the road.
Not only that we don't even have an F1 circuit and the nearest track is 400miles from Athens. Considering going to Germany- Nürburgring and Italy-Imola to have some fun.
The next question is:where do you enjoy driving your S?
Well apart from the things mentioned above, (i have been 4 times to the track)we have the twistiest,2nd-3d gear mountain roads,with good grip,no holes or bumps (in some parts),and a scenery that can be seen in post cards, photos and documetaries. Nothing is like the real thing. :number1

eh... in Atlanta, there's not too many good driving roads... too much traffic, stoplights, and cops to make anything really worthwhile or fun.

By the Chattahoochee River, there's a couple pretty decent twists and turns, but the roads aren't long enough... it's like a one or two minute hustle, and nothing more.

now I can go maybe 45 minutes north and get into some mountain roads... but not a lot to write home about.
