    The people over at webquad just won't shut up about top speeds.

    Some kid just keeps claiming his 360 modena can go 270+, and he refuses to provide proof. I've also heard people claim that they have achieved over 260 in their enzos, and I personally max out at 253, and so does every other person I know of.

    Of course the people that produce these outrageous claims refuse to provide any setups. Everybody at that site has a tight ass and doesn't want anybody to know all their precious 'secrets.'

    I've been reading this site for a while and you people seem much more willing to help than they are. (ex; wheelie topic) I was just wondering if anybody here has actually achieved these speeds, or if this guy over at webquad is just an ignorant douche.

    Here's a link to the topic: WebQuad Top Speed Topic

    Where can you test out top speeds, is there a specific area or are people just using the front straight on the Nurburgring?

    I drive with manual tranny and all aids off. It's still an outrageous claim.

    they are probably just running the analyzer in the garage and thats what its telling them if they cant show any proof.

    the analyzer thingy for the z06 {877 hp} shows top speed of 224 mph
    on the test track with aids on and auto i have netted a 232

    they are not always correct, my thinking on this is usuall add 5 mph to the top end for down hill sections and things, and comming off a banked oval at a certain degree will net more speed.

    it is possible. all you have to do is draft with another person.

    He said without drafting. Even so, it would still take a long time to get up to that speed, and to maintain stability around the turns, drifting or not.

    I think the Enzo could get up to 270mph with drafting or maby even close to 300mph.
    I just dont know anyone near me who can drive well enough:(

    I do remember hearing a report of 2 guys that got up to 306 on a 4 lap race around the oval. Team 300 plus or something like that.

    You would definately need a wheel for that.
