Am I right, if I say 87 MPH is 139,2 KMH??

If that is so, this is pretty funny, I can go max max max in 3th gear @ 6200RPM - (on the counter) 140 KMH
Then I really have to shift too 4th gear or my pistons will shoot through the hood lol.

By the way, the other day a brand new type of Honda Accord (dont know what kind of engine, it didnt say anything on the back) got smoked by me, like 3 car lengths in front of him.
Prolly a stock car tho..

HAHA unfortunately I have to agree, and so do the rest of you. just cause chip comes one here doesn't mean he is here to start shit, he usually post useful info.

damn chip do you got a bed rep or what? :lol: :lol:
People just don't like the way I come across when I tell them something, doesn't matter to me.
Even tho I cannot beat you, I will race you!
We cant cuz we live far away, but if somebody in Holland is challanging me, or I think he or she is, I dont care what kind of car it is, I just put my pedal to the f****** metal!!! :)

I ran both of my turbo cars at the flashlights at zelionople, the track is LONGER than an 1/8th and completely unofficial and random... I was consistently killing it with nearly 10mph over realistic traps from real tracks. Just an FYI. Heres a video from a few years ago there.

A great domestic compact car whose rapidly disappearing taillights are most typically seen through the windshields of Honda Civics, Chevy Cavaliers, and other assorted shitboxes.
