08 GT50 goes 179 mph


Recommended Posts

Not in the quarter though!

 

Took my 08 GT500 along to an event last Saturday called VMax Overboost held at Bruntingthorpe airfield here in the UK. The runway is 2 miles long & timing beams were set at around the 1.5 mile mark. All kinds of exotica were in attendance such as a new Lexus LFA, Ferrari 599 GTO & a RUF CTR.

 

My car has Justin’s tune & pulley with KR mufflers, I was hoping for 170, but knocking on the door of 180, 5900 rpm in fifth & still pulling well at the line, blew me away!!

 

The CTR went 207 & the GTO 195. A stock ’11 GTR ran 181 (tuned 197) & a Camaro SS 161.

 

Wondering what it would do with a VMP TVS now………….

So how did the car feel at that speed, was your hood / bonnet lifting significantly and what type of suspension are you running ?
