    Re: STS-V Top Speed?

    I Was at the airport where I use to work last week and hit 174.7 on gps in 1.4 miles and back down to 30 to make the turn off at the end. It might have gone faster but ran out of room and was afraid the sun roof was going to come off the car. I was a hand full at that speed. 160 it's ok but over that it starts floating a little. And that was on a smooth runway.

    im shocked you can get to 175--id think the aero would hold you back I have shelby with a major tune and drove it on Road Atlanta, and the most i could get was 175--and thats with 625HP
