    it's crazy and we don't have a track, it's wrong but ...

    you can do anything you like on the highway at 4am most of the time, cops will not bother stopping you, they can easily catch you *all cop cars can do 320 top speed, mostly commodores and camry*, but they won't bother cuz it's your life :p

    cop cars drive fast sometimes too , I took a vid myself while slip streaming behind a cop car while hes doing 150 - 200 km :D

    What happens when a truck passing from the other way causes enough wind disturbance to flip your car?

    Bye Bye VE SS

    It's all well and good til you hit a camel.

    I didn't think we were supposed to be putting up threads like this, regardless of country?

    No, they cant.
    id like to see where exactly you are getting this *information* because its B.S.

    EDIT: didnt notice poster was listed as being in Saudi Arabia.
    I thought we were talking about our own cop cars, which wont do 320kmh.

    If you find a post you think breaks site rules use the report post button which is located at the top of every post. At this stage i personally don't take issue to it. I wouldn't even know if he's breaking a Saudi law so i'll exercise my discretion and leave it.

    I've just had a quick look and can't find a thing about Saudi cop cars so it's a bit hard to call bs at this stage without telling us why....

    it's not common as you think, but it does happen from time to time ...

    thank you , and feel free to delete it, but I was really interested in how far can we push an SS , and I don't think I'm the only one who want to see that

    back to the main subject,,,

    do you think the SS is capable of doing 300+ with the stock components ?

    No, I don't think so.

    It's about as aerodynamic as one of those camels you hardly ever hit.

    Disappointing they only hit 250, i had a speed trap of 254 in my VY, would of thought the VE's would be up for more. I would of loved more track to run off, but braking points come very quick at 250+ so wasnt going to push any further.

    Well, it all depends what body it is in.

    By all means, the engine has enough power and even the trans should hold up, but all comes back to what it's pushing in my opinion.

    In a VE, no. In a Redbak Spyder, maybe....or a slick and light kit car or something.
