Why do you need a higher speed? A stock KA's not going to push much more than that, even with the governor removed. Do you have the tires, suspension, safety mods, and aero to support such speeds? Don't go killing people on the highways...please!

^Silence would've been better on that one. We all respect people based on the assumption they're not out doing that kind of stupid stuff.

Keep it to the track.

Like Boostin said, just leave it alone. It is assumed that a lot of people out there "speed" on the streets. However we don't want to know about it or hear about it. It's illegal, and you don't really want it documented in a public forum. Also, if you were to bite it at 120+ mph, in the middle of the night on the freeway, who do you think's going to find you if there's nobody around? I'm just sayin....

What happens when some wildlife (deer/squirrel/etc) runs out when you're at 100. Bye bye num. That car certainly isn't build to withstand a crash at that speed.

Having raced at those speeds, the S chassis isn't meant for it without modification. It's downright dangerous.

Last, no poor schmuck wants to have to get out of bed way early in the morning cause some kid wanted to play race car.


Now, that being said, we all do stupid things. I'm not gonna act like the worlds greatest driver. Will you listen? Eh, based on people's usual reactions, probably not. Do we want to hear about it? Nope.

lol, sorry boostin, i have to say this.....theres no deer in my area...the biggest thing in my area would be a coyote or something, and well, goodbye coyote....lol, i'd rather replace the radiator..anyway, with that being said, it takes to damn long to get to top speed, so why does it matter. dont trip, at the track you'll probably get to about 80mph, then have to downshift and slow down for the next corner. so there's no need lol. anway, this is starting to turn into a bragging match and a few answers have been given.... so with that note....

/thread.....
