Camry Top Speed II

Recommended Posts

People if you insist on telling the world your top speeds at least claim it was on a track or private road or disused air strip ie. somewhere that it is not illegal and (from the numbers that did still show) likely to cost you your license in one go. Let's think about it alot of people read these forums and most are not in favour of speeding on public roads.

Or better still actually try your car on a track or official drag strip there is a bit more enjoyment to it

$2.25 to make it sound not so bad along a sealed road at a mates farm if you cant work out the speed from that price...yeh...still had more in it but stock width tyres + braking distance fading by the second it wouldnt have been a great plan to push it further

i wanna find out where you can legally/FOC play with your car.. places that i know of, cost around $80-100 per entrance?

i can see that aurion has very large possibilities to overkill a camry on any track, thats why there is no need compare thou.. haha.. i know, coz i own 1 as well..

back last year there was no speed limit on the stuart highway (im in darwin by the way) and it was only a 15 min drive to the open speed limit starting point. that is where my mates would do it, and it was legal but still stupid of course.

Isn't Australia still limited to 110km on all roads regardless of speed signs.

That is our national limit..get used to it as it's not going away.

na teh whole stuart highway and arnhem highway was marked with unrestricted speed limit. all the way to the border of QLD and SA then it 110 (except when going through small towns of course) but now it changed to 130 which is what teh majority of people did anyway. it doesnt matter tho cos how often are you gonna go past a cop car when driving around in the middle of nowhere after Katherine? never.

Dude, I agree that in that amount of space - have some cautious fun... BUUTTT...

... the speed limit is there not so you get busted, but to limit the amount of damage you will do to other and yourself.

The sole reason behind them putting restrictions in NT and the Nullarbor is because too many people were obliterating themselves. 160+ and a Kangaroo jumps out... noone will you find you and your family dying in your wreck until a truckie cruises by 5 hours later...

People don't just die in high speed crashes.

They disintegrate. After seeing some rather ****ed up things, I just cruise and have a little fun here and there without pulling out scary speeds.
