    I recently pushed my 99' STS to 120mph, then pulled backed. Has anyone reached their top speed yet?

    Late year, when we were coming home from holidays in Florida. My 2000 STS was riding fully loaded, 4 persons, trunk so full that you had to push it shut and a large sports gap riding in the 5th seat. I calculate that the Caddy was weighing in at approx. 6500 lbs. On I75 we came upon a Mustang that wasn't letting anyone pass it. I suspect that it thought that it couldn't be out run. Wrong! The Caddy passed him at around 126 mph. By the time I got off the gas the STS was on its way from 135 to 140 mph and the engine was turning just under 5000 rpm. My STS was still accellerating when I let up on her. It was the wife (in the back seat) saying "do you want to STOP THIS %$#^%$%%$# STUPIDITY" that prevented me from actually finding out just how fast her could go.

    Theres no car thats y2k + that allows you to go over 120, as far as i know unless you have a tune you cant reach those speeds, or are all of you on factory tune?
