Haven't ran 4th up to redline yet, but 2nd @ 8k is 70 mph for me...?
Related smile - on the edge of town, we have these 2 lane roads that are 4 way stops at each mile, but open up to 4 lane at the intersection for about a 100 yds and then the right lane ends, back to two lane. The right hand lane is not a turn only lane, so I was in the habit of switching the right lane at the sign and passing however many cars were backed up at each intersection to speed along the commute.
After just finishing up a Mikuni VM34 carb transplant onto the wifes KZ440 LTD and getting the carbs dialed in nicely, I pull up next to a new GTO. He sees me on the clutch looks away with one of those "whatever, I'll show you" scoffs and starts revving the Goat. (Granted 6'5" me on a lowered 440 is probably an entertaining sight...) We take off and the 440 has him by about 10 feet when the lane ended. I had to back off to merge, but I still remember the day I took the Goat!
