I was wondering how fast I was going. I got on the interstate and floored it. I saw that I was at the limit of 125 (as shown on speedometer), but when I let completely off the gas, it took about 3 seconds for it to go down. I thought my guage was stuck or something. Then it dawned on me that I went past the 125 shown. So what do you all estimate my speed to be?

I estimate your speed to be excessive and life threatening.

whenever i got it up to 120+ (long time ago) it would sound like it bounced off the rev limiter

there's really no way to tell your speed because no one knows if the speedo is accurate after the needs goes away from the numbers....the only thing I can say is that i've had my needle in nearly the 6 o'clock position on my '95 5-speed.....another thign to note, whenever I took out my speedo cluster, I noticed that the needle doesn't go past that point.....

So let me get this right: Some altimas have govenors, and some don't, or they all got different top speeds?

its obvious some have governers and others dont . and yes the top speeds range, but im not sure where the difference is.


i know the 93-99 speedo says a top speed of 125
and a 2000-2001 has a top speed of 145
but........
ive seen 1st gens do 140 with me and im a 2nd gen, but ive also seen some 2nd gens not be able to hit 120, same with the first gens ...so where the difference is - i have no idea
