I agree...timb said:Maybe it's because I'm getting older and I have a daughter now but WTF do you need to be doing 100 + on a public road for :ztoohot:
I realize we have all done stupid things but save that SH!T for the track before you kill yourself and take some other inocent people out with you.
Did you say "How BAD??"A-Train said:The 12" torque converter is rated for 5,400 rpm, then is starts to balloon or grow on its axis of spin. There is a possibility that it can wipe out the trust washer and that would be BAD.
Well one of the two got to blow up first. Then you'll know which one it is. 100 + MPH is the limit with these stock T-Birds. Now, how do you go faster? The guys that go to the track, cross the 1/4 mile at 89 -93 mph, depending on mods. That is about 15.5 down to 14.5 secs. This is with bolt ons. On the track it's 1 sec, but on the street it's the difference of night and day. What you need on the street is quick acceleration. Forget about mph. Acceleration is where the fun is. That means upgrading parts that are worn out. Pictures at 11. Ed94cougar4.6 said:Hi guys, today i take my car on the freeway to see how fast it went . Now the card wont go over 100. Is that an engine problem or trasmission
I'm not sure where you get your information. I couldn't find one on my faster times, but here's one of the slower ones.Hollywood Ed said:The guys that go to the track, cross the 1/4 mile at 89 -93 mph, depending on mods.
I'm not sure what your point is here, but without "quick acceleration" I would not have turned 98mph in a quarter mile on the track...What you need on the street is quick acceleration.
