What's the fastest you've ever gone in a 510?

.15mph. I recently pushed my first one out of a garage.

Bringing this thread back to life with a 72 1200/B110 coupe hitting a GPS verified 155 mph, is the body 510 really that bad aerodynamically? Yes it was a scary experience and I'd rather not do it again, but it could! The 3.73 gear helped but it definitely had some more to go if I stayed in it... definitely not as stable as my S13 at that speed!

Yes, and so is a 1200. But you're pushing an awful lot of torque through a very light weight car, so...   ^_^

 

Don't forget the average 510 is likely 400 pounds heavier than the average 1200, as well...


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

On a related note, I'm amazed at how many 1200s can routinely hit 140-150mph on a drag strip, but I've never seen a 510 that could. Perhaps it does have a more slippery frontal area?

The 510 has the same drag coefficient as an Easybake oven. I think the 1200's biggest aerodynamic advantage isn't the front end but the swapped rear window. 

 

This Coupe comes within a breath of 200 mph. Insane.
