    My frineds dad got his new Nissan Maxima up to 220KPH! I did not know they could go that fast. He said it would of gone faster, but 130MPH is pretty crazy.

    You can get stock '02 SEs down to 14's in the 1/4 mile. 130MPH doesn't seem like such an impossible figure after achieving that.
    fyi- The Altima is quicker in the 1/4 mile [​IMG]

    I'd bet they could get up to 150... more aerodynamic and more power than the WRX, and the WRX can get to 145.

    Yes, I believe the Maxima can go at least 142.

    I've been at 130 in my '01 Maxima, and there was easily more room to go.

    I just bought a 2K2 Max SE 6-speed in April and love it. Coming from a 98 WS6 TransAm I thought I would be miserable and in all honestry the Max is a blast to drive. Very high quality vehichle inside and out. My first foreign car and I have no regrets.

    A Maxima will go a good bit faster if you do something like... put a 125hp shot of nitrous on it! [​IMG]
    I know some guys who were all set to rent a Cadillac and turn the Northstar into a NOStar at the track. The rental place screwed up, so they got a Maxima instead. The NOSxima only had a nitrous bottle put on it and a vice grips on the fuel return line to increase the fuel pressure. It wound up doing a best of 13.6 if I remember. Not so bad. 125 is a big shot of juice, though.

    I've been up to 130 mph in my 93 Ford Probe GT, and it only has 164 HP. Great little car...and it handles like a dream too.

    I believe Road & Track had a previous generation ('95 maybe?) Maxima SE up to 142 mph.

    I had my 91 Max SE to about 135mph and it only has 190hp. I had passed some guy in an American V8 and he thought he would try to pass my back. Too bad he had to watch me pull away. I had to slow down due to getting close to a town or it may have gone faster. It is still running with almost 300,000 miles. I also had my 73 240Z to 135 quite a few years ago. Man what a car!!![​IMG]

    Most GM cars have a top speed of 110 due to a the inclusion of a limiter by GM. Even though they are capable of going faster.

    the maxima has one of the best engines in it's class. sure it's important to have proper tires, but it's an awesome v6.

    i'm confident mine (2K SE 5-SPD) would do 145, but i've only peaked at about 90 once.

    A friend of mine has a maxima and he says he has had it up to 240 kph. What I was surprised by was that my uncle was able to get his BMW 3.28 up to 150 mph with only 193 hp.
