I've done about 110 on the I40 but never hold it more than a few seconds because I know that could be a mean ticket if I ever get caught. I understand it's legal, but going almost twice that is crazy. One wrong move and it's a wrap for you whether it's blowing a tire, a huge bump, a swerve, trying to decel too fast, anything that could be caused by other traffic. Yea, just look for in the slow lane of the Autobahn going a reasonable 85

100 is my all-time fastest. I'd never try 204, only pro racers can handle that kind of speed.

I've done 115... actually I've done it multiple times. However, no way I'm doing that **** again.

I've been pulled over by cops twice (not for going that fast) and I got a warning both times... now my ass doesn't speed.

You push an Impala LS right? If that goes 115, then maybe I really can/could hit 140 in my Grand Prix. Then again, you might not be the poster I think you are

I maxed out at 155 on my 300zx, it does not feel that fast though.

in Texas if they catch you going 30 over the speed limit its an automatic suspension of your license.

I got up to 107 in my 97 Explorer once. It shook so bad i was worried it may fall apart. About 6 months after I did that the whole Firestone tire thing came out. I went to check mine and they were pretty damn worn. I got pretty lucky those things didn't unravel.

Talking about Firestone, I would not buy any new Goodyear tires anytime soon. The Firestone tires were bad b/c they were built by strike breakers who didn't have the years of experience needed to make the tires. Well, Goodyear was just recently using scabs to build their tires during the strikes too. So be careful with those things for the next few years. I would not be surprised to see the same thing happen to them that happened to Firestone.

ROFL how did you remember my car? Yes, I have an Impala LS. It's black. Yes, I'm Shog.

I'm pretty sure the speedometer goes up to 120... it might be 125. I've done 115. Engine is a v6.

I've been in a car going 125mph, my friend did it without even warning me. That was some scary ****.

Never been faster than 110, so not bad myself.

However, I have been in the car doing 95 on a 35 mph road (friend showing off his new car, no warning for me).

I got a good memory plus I was trying to get an Impala myself but I wanted an SS, found a mean black one with dark tints and chromes but they didn't want to come a few thousand off the price so I ended up with an orange 05 Grand Prix.

I think the rule in Oklahoma is 20+ over the limit and immediate revokation of the liscense plus 14 days in jail and/or a fine. I know it's steep whatever it is.
