    Xandi: Tudo bem! I don't think we have many members from Basil. Welcome to Rennteam.

    I got 125MPH (201KPH), but I'm a wimp and don't want to go to jail for speeding.

    I believe Carlos hit 191MPH (308KPH) several months ago in Spain, but the 911 speedo may be off by a couple clicks.

    Would love to hit 300 on tach... but...

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Right! I taped in video, this is actually a screen shot. I will post the video when I finfish it.

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Max i'v done was 295km/hr then my wife started screaming

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Carlos, get the gear ratios (speed at 1000rpm) and with the revs of the engine you can know the speed in a much more accurate way than the speedo.

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    SO nice!!!!! carlos thats the maximum no!? the revs are at 7.300 but its excelent!!! the max speed with my car was 253 in fifth gear.. after that i stopped because a car.

    MUHRI U MUST RUN WHEN YOUR WIFE IS SLEEPING :d :d THANKS

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    wish i had your heart... this is insane speed.. id never :O

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    156 MPH, or 265 KPH, on a local expressway. That's what the speed limit is for, right? Personal best?

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Nice Carlos.

    Say, what's the redline on the C2S?

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Both speedo's said 180 mph.

    Does this take in account issues such as wind, aerodynamics and temperature?

    I think you can only gauge the speed from the gear ratios based upon statistics from the company (which aren't always accuarte, ahem F-cars ).

    You're welcome! Do you maybe still have that picture beltar? I couldn't find the old thread with the picture you posted of the tach.

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Speedo said 183mph

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    304 km/h

    I have a GPS sistem on my car for radars and it displays GPS "speed over ground" which is very accurate so next time I will look at that

    Hmmmm... I actually don't know, when I hit 308 I had to brake hard for a 220km/h turn, and at 308km/h and with a camcorder in one of the hands, it can be a little preocuppying especially becuause its harder to judge the braking point at that speed.

    A couple of weeks ago I overtook a unmarked police at over 200km/h in that same place! (luckily I got away )

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    great Carlos !!!!

    only 306 for me ....

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Just over 155mph on the Autobahn - seemed real easy!

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    Holly cow!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    I couldn't tell where the redline was from Carlos' pic, but it's clear from sergini's that it's at 7000 rpm. Question answered.

    I wonder why the rev limiter didn't cut in on you Carlos, since you seem to be more than just a litle over the redline . . .

    Re: max speed on your carrera s..!??

    The rev limiter probably doesn't cut in until 7500RPM, if you look at my pic and sergini's, both our tach's are over 7000RPM.
