For some reason I'm having a hard time believing you did 135 in your truck. What exactly do you have done to it? Unless you're tubro'd I don't see your 4 banger going that fast.

aaron, i hit 110 in mine, and it kept going....but you'd better believe that i was on a huuuuuge hill that had two crests, both downhill. I also recall a huge tail wind.

LOL, My truck is an 1987 It has it's own speed limiter.... 95 HP Even still... I have had it to about 100 MPH on a closed track (California Speedway) and I dare not take it faster..... I don't think it will go any faster without some help from a little spiral Snail that goes vrrrooooomm........ PSSSSSHHHHH.

LOL.

Oh IBTL
