Has anyone actually managed (legally) to hit 189 mph in their car? If so where?
Thanks!Good luck Hovy, the top I could get on that track is 220 on the long straight. With R-tronic you will probably see more though.
Is your weekend a private event or are you doing it through the Jim Russell school?
Oh no I was in an R8 very much like yours and yeah it's kph You can probably get it a bit higher but that turn comes pretty quickly ones you pass the cables.
You'll love your car, definitely. It's made for the track!
Odds are I'll be on my honeymoon and back around the 15th so any time after that I'd be available! Yeah I've seen that black R8 once, looks good. Also saw a Daytona like mine with CF and a silver with CF like yours.That's cool! Why don't you join us in September? I'll PM you mid to late August if you'd like. I don't know where you live but I know there is a black R8 in Westmout; the guy lives on top near the Saint-Joseph Oratory. I saw it few times when I go jog from where I live (downtown) to there. It'd be cool to get most R8 owners for a track day.
ps: I am also taking my Cayenne to see what it can do on a track
So you're getting married this summer! Congrats! No worries. Enjoy your honeymoon. I am also gone on vacation in a week 'til end of August. I'll PM you and if you're available and wish to join, it'll be nice. I will try to get in touch with other Montreal R8 owners (via forums) to see if they'd also like to join.Odds are I'll be on my honeymoon and back around the 15th so any time after that I'd be available!

I live in old Montreal.
So are you from Montreal? Which dealership did you get your R8 at?
that's actually pretty accurate. someone when I coast next to someone and can see their large digital speedo, and i'm going the same speed, it's about 2-3mph difference.I have put my portable GPS in my car to test, Audi runs 2 MPH slower than speedo shows

Good to know. I know in my GLI it got to the point where you were 3MPH off at like 35. At 75 you were doing maybe 67-68Yes, my run at Bruntringthorpe was for Performance VW magazine and they had fitted a Racelogic "Driftbox" to the car. As far as I can remember the speedo was within 2 mph at 170.
That seems to fit in nicely with RS4CAB's findings.
