I was just curious how many people really get on their elantra's hard and also just what they are capable of. I have done a little over 120 in my elantra, but it really doesn't feel like it wants to push much above about 115 though, it really takes a while to pick up speed above that and feels like it lacks the horsepower to get too much faster even though i have alot more rpm's left to go. Some people did say that this is a governor but it just doesn't feel the same as fuel cuts in most cars i have been in when the governor kicks in

I could do that... but it can wait untill tommarow.

I've had the Elantra up over 90 I'm pretty sure, but not for long. Fastest I've ever driven was 120+ (my speedo didn't go higher than that) in my 72 Dart:

Considering that our cars are limited somewhere near 120mph, there will probably be a bunch of votes for the 110-120. I had my car up to a little over 110 once, just to see what it was like. Getting up to 90 is no big deal, 90-100 takes some time, and finding 110 took a nice long flat straight stretch of open road. With the stock suspension, 110 felt like I was near the edge of what is safe.

yeah, i see that most people say their cars are limited at 120, but im thinking since some guys have turbo setups and other mods they probalbly remapped their ecu and can get higher, also i bet alot of people dont make it to top speed

thats cool that you had a 72 dart, i actually have a 73 dart sport being built for the track with the old motor before i blew it i took that car up to about 130, this is the reason my elantra has no mods in terms of power, i dont like having a race car for a daily driver

Oops, I voted 120-130 before reading the "in your elantra," part. I briefly did 120 in a Mercedes 190E and a Subaru SVX, but I haven't gone much over 110 in my Elantra. I do get up to 90-100 maybe once a week or so, whenever there's more than half a mile of completely straight, empty exit ramp on my way home... I like to exercise my car.

No 100-110 choices?

I took the Elantra to ~105mph with four people and AC. Strangely enough, it seemed to get there very quickly.
