I was pretty surprised at how stable the car felt at 140. I wouldn't do this on a regular basis at all but hey, I had to know.
130mph and still pulling, provided no one was looking. Just the desert, cold air, "new brakes" and a vehicle that sans a little tightening on the ole spring rate could easily do much better with just a little squirt of happy gas. The engine was rebuilt after knee high water met with the intake (which was below knee
). Slightly larger pistons and some awesome work by H&R Racing make triple digits an easy target. Unfortunately this is So. Cal. and most the time is spent below 10mph. 4 years, 90k and yet I still love this vehicle. Yes, maybe foolish, but the only damage would have been to the rocks and sand for they now would have the pinkish hue we Honda owners know as "Milano Red".
Its a "Fit". Drive it like ya stole it. Kudos Honda, kudos.
