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.

The blocked list is getting bigger-but you were the first.

Ok lets say street legal Z car ! not my car , I can't take to out to Nv. and run it, Here is mild build RB25 90mm throttle body and bigger turbo ,can boost up maybe 375hp or more as is .here is where gets hairy ,has stock 330 ratio and pulls hard all gears . I can say I believe 175 mph or more as is ,if your nads can hold on.

I've got an old friend that has a V8 powered 240z, you guys have probably seen it (the black one with wide body kit) and we used to bomb around in that car at speeds that any 510 could only wish to achieve. No matter what the power plant.

 

I've been told that his 240z has hit 180. And I don't doubt it. It would pull away from bikes at over 120 mph.

That's flat movin!

Fastest I've been in a car is 160ish (older 911 turbo), though the most terrified was at about 110, but we were airborn in a 29 Ford, at night, one head light pointed at the shoulder the other pointed about 8' infront of the car, had no windows, no roof, gate latches keeping the doors shut, folding boat seats and no seatbelts......Was fun as hell though

I yeald to the wisdom of Q on this one.

Fuck!!!!!!!! I guess QTip was right...

In college - I had just rebuilt my L-18 (Mild Cam and weber).  Otherwise stock car - hit 110 on the downhill of the 57 freeway coming from the 210 in so cal.  Things went fine, but it was very floaty,,,Looking back I shake my head.  Something small goes wrong at that speed.....but to be younger again!
