Top speed is 175mph from what I've read. Tell the guy to shut the F#@$% up. He's a butt hole that doesn't know jack. Oh and if he thinks they are slow, tell him stock SRT8 Bee pulls down 12.1 in the quarter mile.

Let me guess. He drives rice too!?

No, they do not. For quite a number of years, the German manufacturers had a "gentlemens agreement" to limit off of their models to 155, to head off imminent legislation to that effect after a series fo horrifying autobahn accidents. But they started bypassing that for the serious iron years back.

SRTs policy is that they have no limiters except simple drag/power. As fast as the engine will psuh the car through the air, thats the limit

Most cars, like R/Ts, etc, they do have one, set to a couple mph below the speed rating of the stock tires. Normal R/Ts were 130, but Daytonas and Road and Track packages, that came with tires rated to 150, got the limiter set to 148 or so. SRTs have tires rated to about 180 or so, but gearing stops them at about 173-175.

The Neon SRT was out of the box capable of about 145 or so, but adding the Mopar Stage kit raised that to the 170 range, and so new tires of that capability were recommended.

Even at 130 mph along the back straight—top speed is 175, says Chrysler—the 300 SRT8 remained firmly planted, and there was virtually no wind noise.

^ Yeah, typical Honda driver...

It doesn't matter what you tell him, his mind is made up (just like his information).

Just try to ignore him and maybe he'll go away.

The Police Pursuit is limited to 149 MPH, CHP took a stock Pursuit and raised the limt with the Predator to 175 MPH, the car topped out at 163 MPH. I have mine set at 175 MPH and with intake and exhaust will top out at 166 MPH.

SRT's are NOT limited. (pleasantly suprised when i found this out AFTER purchasing mine)

as for the top speed - i have hit 165 in my 2009 on the autobahn (safely). she had a little left too, but i hit a speed controlled zone and had to slow down a bit. i would say i probably could have gotten 170. note: that was with me (230 Lbs) a passenger (190 Lbs) and an after-market sub w/custom box (70 Lbs w/ speaker) and a full tank of gas (100+ Lbs)....that's nearly 600 Lbs of extra weight (vs curb weight of ~4200). the 6.4 should be able to hit, what? 180? maybe 185?

anything less would be....uncivilized
