I do wonder how it always takes them long to reach a certain destination...
yeah, at the end of dragonball when he is getting ready to fight Tien it is mentioned that he can go as fast as the speed of light. he is able to go that fast after his training with Kami.
in DBZ, according to Akira Toriama the DBZ creator, when they "phase out" in a fight they are going the speed of light.
