I have not taken my se-r to its topend yet, (due mainly to its bouncy ride, i need lowering springs). but im just curious to how fast any of you have taken your "baby" to. Is there a speed limiter on these things?
Im kinda sad the specs say it tops out at 125. My old crx did that. I want more speeed!! vrrrrrrrroooooooooooooooooooommmm!!

Well in 98 at the SE-R meet in LI (see the se-r.net for pics) myself and ralphy were racing and I did about 130.
Then my brother and I did 139. That was in my old unresponsible days. With the new spoiler kit and 10:1 motor I have not tested it out. But I am not interested anymore, as I am not so brave (or stupid) as i used to be. But I would assume over 140 is possible.

I've kissed 130 on the Florida Turnpike, and just as I slowed to sane speeds I came around a bend to see about 4 cops within a mile that had pulled people over. Talk about perfect timing.

I have touched about 142 or so one night coming down I-84 in CT. Was kinda scary because I have never been in my car that fast. Damn I love that JWT ECU. Need to get an exhaust and I'm sure I can do the entire dash...

185 km/h indicated (with a speedometer that reads 6% low due to awful 185/70 tires) with a bike strapped onto the back. I'm a moron.

Was giving my uncle a ride in my car and I made a new best- just past 150. Probably touched an indicated 152mph. That right at 7000rpm in 5th. Does that sound pretty accurate between the speedo and the tach?

Indicated 125 on the front straight at Roebling Road in Savanah, GA. I was stock and drafting a 911. That **** works! The fastest I could do without the aid of a draft was 117.
