I was wondering the same thing cause i hit 141 in my 5th gen and I was the one that slowed down cause I thought i saw a cop. Then again, the lude is 100% made in japan.

The one time I did put my foot on the gas was against a CRX with a B20 or something swap and I pulled on him and reached over 141 and still pulling a bit. But I have upper strut bars on both the front and back and I didn't like that ridgid feel at that speed so I slowed down as well. I have no idea what the top speed would be but I can't imagen it being much more than where I was at.

I also think there is no governor on the Lude.

HP is good but I would like to see a bit more torque would be nice. HP is no good without torque.

But it is still an awesome ride

I got mine to 147, and it was still pulling. I have no idea where the fuel cut of is is, yet alone a govenor. Mine is an SS tranny and I was in total shock I managed to get it that fast. I held that speed for about a minute, then common sence took over. So with that said, I am positive the Lude can and will reach the 150 mark on the speedo.

Later !!!

Yeah I started slowing after I hit 141 and it was still rolling out pretty good, I didn't like how the wheel (steering) felt at that speed, I think it was due to the strut bars I have on the car. I think if the body was allowed to roll a bit more the car wouldn't have felt so rigid.

I think if I were to try the 160MPH test. I would remove the strut bars.
