C5 Corvette Stock 150mph high speed
Here is a short video of my 1997 Chevy corvette doing 150. She still had
more to go when I let off of her but she was fu***ing flying!! I have gone
high speed on bikes but this was something else!!
C5 Top Speed Run, Aborted at 180.
2002 C5 coupe. Heads and cam,Exhaust,
built 4l65e with 3.42's, 475rwhp. Top speed run at Lake El Mirage CA. Car
started to float at 160mph so I let off and got back on it. At 180mph the
rear started to sway so I shut her down. This was done in 1.8miles, easy
throttle to start. Tires to wide for traction on packed dirt. Motor was at
5600rpm at 189mph, redline is 7000. she'll do 200.
Btw, thats not smoke. Its dust being sucked in thru the bottom of the door.
Supercharged now, 600rwhp. Working on forged internals.
