Got a nasty ticket doing 85. I didn't notice that I was going that fast. Really I didn't. There have been a number of occasions when I caught myself going way over the speed limit without intentionally doing it. I have no doubt this car is capable of considerably more without noticeable strain.

done the 115-16 thing twice on the interstate in Maine...took a while to get there like others have noted and that was bone stock...Garm raises valid points though

And before anyone claims the speed limiter would prevent that? One click on the e-brake so the light turns on on the dash shuts that off, but doesn't actually apply any braking. With the e-brake fully disengaged, yeah, the limiter kicks in harsh. One click up? Suddenly it's gone on my '07.
Thanks for the enticement, now I have to put that theory to the test.

Well, it shouldn't be too hard. Just pull the ABS fuse (disables traction control), jack the car up on its front wheels and slowly go up to the rev limit in 5th gear. :33


Fastest I've ever gone in any car was 165 MPH (115 over the limit) but those days are behind me.

Isn't florida state highways normal traffic speed around 90 mph i heard??
Florida highways can be fast, but then they can also literally stop on a dime, so you have to be really careful. I hit 100 once and was still being passed.

Aww, but Garm you are using your brains. Top speed has nothing to do with that type of reality.

99 mph measured by GPS. Tried hard for 100, but it couldn't do it - started acting really bad on a straight road.

I've had mine up to 115 (easily) once two years ago. It has not seen north of 85 since.
AEI intake only with 5 speed.

I asked myself the same question I believe u r the Fastest 0 to 118mph (yaris top speed). have u by pass the Speed limiter?


118mph on the yaris isn't that hard. I do it on weekly basis U just need a long empty road.
