Default Whats the fastest?

What's the fastest MPH you have reached in your PT? I have yet to 'max' the car out.

I've got Ol' Betsy goin 112 down I-96

Whats the governor setting on the PT?

115mph in 1320'

S1 MPH is limited at 120, 15% of that and it starts trying to slow it down.

I've had my PT up to 183km/h. That's around 114mph. That was in third gear. I didn't like how slow the engine pulled, it was just sitting almost at redline screaming, so I backed off before I blew something. I'm pretty sure I wasn't getting rev limiter. Seems like the N/A engines don't have much power over 5500rpm. I have trouble getting my car to accelerate above 100mph in OD. I think I read somewhere that the governor is set at 115mph. All I know is it's way to bloody fast for our potholed roads. Bouncing around on an uneven road at that speed in a firmly suspended vehicle doesn't feel cool. My Dynasty was better at those speeds on bad roads, it soaked everything up and felt composed. Just don't do anything other than a straight line!

Yeah...I have a hard time trying to keep her around 95, the hills kill me lol. I got to 112 after I was descending on a hill, every little bit counts

I was pretty much racing/pissing off a guy in the other lane. Was wayy too excited to look at my RPM or my speedometer - Just glanced over at my GPS and was like WOAH!

Going across alligator alley between Ft. Lauderdale and Naples, The ex wife and I hit 130 in the PT GT 5 SPEED ,then the gov kicked on and it fell on it's face, the back again. She yelled at me WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU DOING, QUIT PLAYING WITH THE GAS PEDAL, I said Your a party pooper.
So it was 130 for me

To be honest I've never attempted any top speed records, or at least put any effort into it. Once in a life I tried it my Fastest speed is 120.

Maxed my car out a few times... 120 for me then the speed limiter kicked in. Most memorable for me was when I raced an older Audi TT all the way from the end of North Beach in FT. DeSoto (FL) over the Howard Franklin Bridge into Tampa. Neither of us slowed down for anything but red lights and not once did he pass me, no matter how hard he tried. Surprised the heck outta me, I thought TT's were quick!

I think he is just curious as to how fast someone has ever taken their PT up to. I have heard some interesting numbers on the ones with the speed limiters removed. I thought I would throw that story out there to explain WHY I had gone that fast.
