Okay, so I was on my home from Utah and we stop in St. George to get some gas and some coffee (it was 3 in the morning). I see this black Accent GS fueling up so I start talking to him, I give him a business card, find out he has the 1.6L DOHC and I continue fueling up. He leaves about 5 minutes before me.

I get fueled up, buy a coffee and a Skor bar (best candy bar) and Mary and I leave in the Del Sol. Now, between St. George and Las Vegas is what is called the "Virgin River Gorge". It's basically where the Virgin River cuts between two mountains and they blasted it out and put a road through it, so there are some VERY good twisties.

I'm cruising through at about 95 mph when I fly by the guy in the Accent I was just talking to. As I fly by I notice he speeds up and begins pacing me <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>. I speed up to about 105 mph and he stays with me fairly well, he's probably doing a little under 100.

Anyways, I have to give him props for taking his stock Accent through the gorge that fast, I wouldn't dare with mine <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>.

Oh yeah, and after that is a straight stretch of road where I proceeded to ditch him by taking advantage of the Del Sol's 135mph speed governer <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>.

VTC, it had to have one.

It was pulling hard all the way to 7000RPM then just quit. That's not how an engine reaches its limit.

When did the PR3 start appearing in cars?

really? I found mine to handle 110 pretty good... My nissan pickup got hairy after 90 if the wind was blowing.. got this niffty little sway going. So i guess now anything that doesn't do that feels solid to me. I still wouldn't want to try and dodge something in the accent at that speed.
