I took my 1991 Ranger 2.3L/5-speed to 75mph and it started shaking like it had parkinson's, so I slowed down. On the other hand, I took my 2002 Buick Regal to 110mph (the governed speed) and it was like riding on a cloud of air. Very smooth, quiet, and quite comfortable.

haha superkid just reminded me of my friend's 88 chevy caprice with a 305, buries the speedo without much effort and we never seem to find a top speed, just keep pulling, barely even feel the road too, like your just floating along

Yep. The rear felt really light and the front was just shaking. Dunno how else to describe it. You have more weight then I do tho.. might accomidate for some of that ' wall ' effect. I sorta ' bounced off ' of it

Mine is lowered, doesn't shake or top out!!!

AND if it did top out, before I lift off the accelerator, I'd be one POMF'kr!!!

=============================================
When it's your time, it ain't gonna matter if your doin 20mph or 220mph!

Dale Earnhardt Sr. was proof of that...........he'd seen worse crashes than the one that killed him..........was just his time!

I've NEVER been afraid of speed, as long as I'm at the wheel!

And FYI, the fastest I've driven was 160mph in a 68 Z28, and I hit a dip in the road & it changed lanes , I didn't panic, just stayed in it.....but after we got home, it did take me a few seconds to get the upholstery out of my arzz!
