<span style="color:darkblue">I believe the official limit according to Nissan is 156. I'll leave it up to you to find out what the real limit is

I agree on this one. Unless you're on some flat, straight, deserted road, it's not really worth it

Yay!
Hey I was reading on a previous post of yours and I noticed that you mentioned that the base model doesn’t come w/ an lsd or traction control, but I was on the highway 3 nights ago and I could have sworn I saw some thing light up it was too fast to see but I just want to know if # 1 base models have it and you just cant take it off / control it? It’s a 2004 and #2 how good are the aftermarket lsd's and is the nismo one worth the money?

Sorry I am bombarding you w/ questions this is my first fast car I traded my 200 v6 mustang for my new love.

<span style="color:darkblue">No, Bases definitely don't have an LSD, TCT, or VCD. I don't know anything about the aftermarket LSDs because I'm fine with the stock one, but I know Richard had the Nismo one on his Z. link</span>

I did 146 and got scared but it was still climbing. Fastest I have ever been in a car. It was a fun adrenaline rush though. I have seen several pictures that people have taken of there speedometer at 156-160. Gotta be crazy to take your hand off the wheel at that speed.
