Road Trip
Updated 06/22/2005 1:14 AM Post a reply Quote this post View Kerr's info
Hey guys, just got back from a road trip from KC to Denver & back. I got a new car awhile back and this was the first chance I've had to really see what it was capable of. We made it to Denver pretty quick, 600 miles in 6 1/2 hours. We had a strong headwind, but we managed two 5 mile runs at 130mph. I expect I could've gotten 140-145mph out of the car without the headwind. Not bad for a four door!

Here are a couple of pics:

If any of you ever plan to haul ass across Kansas, make sure you take a radar detector. Hi-po is everywhere out there!

not something i would want but 130 mph in a headwind isnt too bad for a stock 4 door.

Yeah, I've always been a sucker for the Maxima even though I don't have a family to haul around Smile

Thanks, Skid. I've been swamped since I got back, but I'll get the saves posted up as soon as I can. Thanks for going to all the work of naming the saves.

I looked at Maximas last week. I ended up getting a Grand Prix GTP coupe. I have only had it up to 110mph so far. Is your Maxima like a 250HP, 6 speed manual?

Thanks, man - it does have 255HP but I got the automatic. The manuals weren't out when I bought mine last October. From what I understand Nissan used a cable acuated shift mechanism instead of rod linkage. Reports I've read said ppl are dissatisfied with the shift action in the manuals. I was looking at the GTP myself - that's a great car. A guy at work has one and I've been trying to set up a race with him - I'll post the outcome if/when we race.

BTW, on the road trip I got the Maxima up to 130 which I think is where it's limited. Time to look into modding the ECU - I think it's good for 145, maybe more.

Take it easy,
