Since the speedo only goes to 115 mph (used to hitting that). I decided to have a friend in a SW20 pace me one night. Carb screaming steering shaking but stable I hit 125 mph*. The car needs a 6th gear cause it still wanted to go! Thank god I didn't try that with the stock steering wheel.

*Several months later it was revealed to me by the SW20's passenger that I indeed hit 130 mph.

since i got an ugly ass ricer wing on my rolla and shes really angled for downforced, once i hit 90 i hit a brick wall, she wont go no faster except down a hill, but ive tried jumping her at 90 on a hill i know will get vehicles airborn at 70 and she was like a white on rice to the road, still waiting for brakes so i can take my journy to get my new hatch and sell the indy wing thats on my hatch now.


side note, before u start hating about the ricer wing, i got it on a trade, have no room for it at my place, so i threw it on, and if u have ever seen my hatch, its mostly bondo, so its no lose

I have hit 100-105 in my AE86 coupe on my way to work at 4:30 in the morning. had plenty of power and rpms for more (devacd and webered) but I was afraid the rest of the car was going to come apart. Hopefully after i go through my suspension this spring it will feel a little safer...

105mph with a stock engine? Maybe on a 20% decline with a 20mph tailwind. With a 5-speed and GTS 4.30 rear end I have a hard time making it up inclines at freeway speeds. I want to see GPS proof that you're hitting 105mph. Until then, I'm calling bullshit.

I made it to 105 on a very slight incline... but that was foot to the floor. I also thought that the suspension I had in there at the time could not take much more Razz This is with a 5speed and a SR5 rear

You can call bullshit all you want. If he had a run at the hill its possible to make 105, I know AE-82's will do 115 and the gearing in a AE-86 couldent be much differnt. So call your bullshit.

HAHAHA... Honestly everybody's car is different with differing levels of shitty old parts... so some can make it, and some can't. Why get upset?

My stock SR5 has done 104 or so (as noted by the speedometer) on flat ground. SR5 rear end, stock T50, stock engine. It took it's dandy time to get there, but it is possible.

Mine can 90 no prob, at 3800 rpm and still have power to go over 100, up to 112

I have a stock carb, stock everything, , maybe because I put zenki bumpers with the heavy braces so its like 100 lbs lighter?

The car does shake like crazy though, feels like a massage chair

I know its a old thread but I think I update it.

My bonestock Corolla FX has once done 175ish on the Speedo(km/h) @5000upm @3 in the Morning and still wanted to pull more.

78HP and 5 Speed manual 4AC.

My 3AC Powered Tercel with 71HP and 5Speed Manual has also done around the same but didnt pulled that much more I think.

When I was a kid I would run my TE27 (2TC) floored at about 85.
Don't want the risk to my 4AC.

My AE86 would do 110-112 with stock engine, and open GTS REAR END.


Took a good mile of highway to do it, but still

Best I ever got was 99MPH, on GPS. This was downhill in the mountains with a tailwind of about 5MPH.

The speedometer was a bit more optimistic, falsely showing in the 105-110MPH range.

afro Hey guys just wanted to let you know, ife done it.

I maxed my AE82 on the german Autobahn tonight.

4AC 78HP 435.000km
Tires: Dunlop Fast Response 195/50/15 (standard is something like 155/80/13)

The Spedo went over 180 topped out at around 185 when the needle hit the bottom.
My Navigation System logged 175km/h (around 110mph) as top speed.

Not bad for such an old engine with this high milage.





Im overly happy and need to celebrate Very Happy bounce bounce bounce lol!
