    Got in a 'spirited' session with a Genesis Coupe last night on the way home

    It was spirited enough for me to check the Garmin to see if it knocked off my top speed recorded on the trip data. Sure did - 113MPH

    For you GPS owners-Whats yours?

    I took mine on a flight once, it clocked the aircraft @ 484mph.

    On the ground the highest I have had it read was 127mph.

    144 in my '10 MCS hardtop when my center speedo was reading about 151. Now that my '11 MCS hardtop is broken in, I will wait for the right time and do it again.

    I know you wouldn't believe it if you haven't seen it. 2008 MCS 6spd. Stock except for a K&N drop-in filter. This was done on a 3 - 5 mile stretch of road. I think I could have gone faster if I had more road.........

    How did you get a decent picture? I tried for about 15 min and the darn flash kept screwing it up no matter the angle or distance.

    I actually took this picture with my Nexus One phone camera. You definitely want to turn your flash off.

    Well I'll be...the iPhone worked a heck of a lot better than the DSLR in this case.

    Thats a heck of an avg speed too. It does include Dallas - Indy - Winter Park - Dallas though.

    North Texas is not much better, some of the best turns are freeway ramps.
