it doesnt matter
since when are muscle cars made for top speed?
i dont care about anything past 120 really, thats alot unless on the drag strip, its the 1/4 mile time that really matters, noone buys a stang to go 150 mph

Because going more than 120 in our cars is very dangerous. And not just because of the speed, but because the car isn't meant to go much faster. The driveshaft alone is inadequate for going 120+.


I'd rather be able to max my speedometer out than not be able to reach the limit of it. The Altima will not hit 160. Well, neither will your car hit 120, unless you turn the ESC off.

Put some 4.10+ gears on there and you won't have to worry about hitting the end of the speedo. With 4.10's I redline 4th gear at ~90mph and I don't think I could push 5th to 120.

Ive hit 120 with 4.10s and I dont Think I redlined. Hmm. But yeah I feel like they should of gave us the 160 spedo like gt's. It wont bother you after a little. The higher your spedo goes up is inverse to your penis size :D

You could always buy GT gauges?

I've taken it to 115 and it scared the ever-loving **** out of me. The car was shaking and I honestly thought **** was going to start falling off the car. I was pissed off at the time, so I didn't back down, but I probably won't ever take it past ninety again, unless I'm on the strip. No thanks.

I dunno... I'd rather have gauges that reflected the actual range of usage. It's more satisfying to see 120 and hit 120 than to see 160 and know you've never had that speedo even 3/4s of the way there.
