Default My Box hit 100MPH!

Yay! My Turbo hit 100MPH the other day! Pretty good, my mom's non-turbo (1992 940 GLE) Tops around 80-90MPH

I was going uphill, and it had more headroom, but the road didn't... (nobody takes that road...) The only place I can go to test it max on a flat road (nicely paved too. ) is about 50 miles out... Maybe some day... NOBODY ever drives on it. And the cops radars couldn't read me by the time I slow down when I see them. The braking on my car could take me 100-60 pretty fast... without skidding.

Although I do not encourage speeding and really try to avoid it, I too have it the 100MPH mark. Twice actually.

Once in my old 1.5L Mitsubishi mirage (92 crank HP, lol)

and then again in my Eclipse GST. That car is governed at ~145MPH, but could probably do 160 with ease.

oh yeah, don't speed,

roflwofl, my dad's a cop... he would string me up if he found out. I'm very careful. My computer is protected, as is my browser activity blocked from the gateway.

Speeding is great fun lol. My mum has a 1994 Honda Civic 1.3L. Going down a hill that thing reached (about 110mph) 170km in fifth. I have no idea what it was revving since it doesn't have a rev counter lol. The fastest I've ever been in a car was 260km on the autobahn with my uncle. He had an Audi RS6 avant at the time. God that thing was fast

My friend and I did 100mph down the highway at night when it was snowing. It was in his 1988 Mazda 323 with a fuel injected 1.6 w/ a 4 speed/od

A little speeds OK now and then. The first time I hit 100mph, it was quite a rush....now it's almost a daily thing when my foot needs to strech

I've gone to 140, to go faster then that I need to fix my front lip to be on there stronger.

What's fun is riding a explorer sport trac at 97mph topped out, cruise controlled...weeeee

@[email protected] its ok to speed as long as you know how to drive. Some people speed, and then theres a rat in the road or something happens out of the norm, and they totaly freak out and flip their car @[email protected]

If your not an idiot, have fun. Otherwise please don't.

Fastest I have ever went was 140 in my brother's Ford Taurus SHO (pretty surprising those things can do 150). Me and my friend go 100-120 in his Integra Type R every once in awhile. It fun going through lightly curving back roads at that speed.

I hardly drive faster than 100, any time me and a friend are lining up to see who's car is faster we always back off around 100 because by that time its obvious which car is faster and there's no point in being overly reckless lol. Fastest I've been though is 140 on the freeway, 115 on normal roads in a Mercedes C230 sport we had as a loaner when one of my parents cars was in the shop those things are so much fun especially because after a few days you send them back and never see it again lol (its terrible but whatever).
