Default high speed run : ) 140mph run!

well, on my way to work, the roads are deserted, I get into the throttle, as a pass a cadillac, he decides to keep pace with me, then blows by....

i floor it, well lets just say, at 215KM/hr with snow tires, i was fighting to keep the car in my lane....

I gave up, these cars have no top end... the cadillac easily outran me at highspeeds.

p.s i see sway bars, and a mild drop in my future, and probably another speeding ticket too...

Let em go! It wouldn't be the same around here if something bad happened to you, like a deer running cross the road or a meteor falling outta the sky, or a star drop falling. Man all kinds of stuff happens when you are "racin" on the street, plus that *hit cost $$$$, which you could spend on the car or send to the Macster retirement fund. As for snow tires aren't they rated for maximum speed or something, and don't they handle real funny at high speeds? My PT gets up to a 100MPH real quick as a matter of fact ticket quick, if you want to improve the top end go to larger pipe from the CAI to the muffler.

FWIWM2C

Sounds like a lot of trouble just give out a speeding ticket because someone claims to be going fast.

They would have to find out who you are (not difficult), hang around somewhere in your shadow hoping you speed sometime just to give you a ticket... if we have the manpower for that then I'm never leaving my house again.

Just wait until every vehicle is required to have a GPS unit and speed control is tracked by satellite. We already have the black box which is being used against motorist.
