The Bonnie is a heavy car but what is an extra 15 MPH? My 2001 SSEi tops out at 125 MPH due to the speed limiter. I have had it there a hadfull of times. The fastest I have ever driven was 148MPH in my ex-girlfriends 1997 Viper GTS I drove it all the time. When speeding you have to smart about it. I would never be weaving in and out of traffic at over 100 MPH. If I drive that fast it is only in that lane and not with a lot of traffic out there.
you dont have to weave in and out of traffic to be a smart speedy driver. Anything can happen. A crack on the road can cause you to loose traction. An unecpected lane change, a blown steer tire. All this can play a role at high speeds. I am not preaching or anything but lets thing ahead here before we do something that might not llook good in the long run.
maybe its just be.......but on a empty 2 lane highway going 140 behind a s4 didn't seem all that fast.....i mean, it was fast, but not all its cracked up to be. then again there wasn't anything like trees or buildings to give a sense of speed
I had a 2003 SSEi here in Germany and ran it on the autobahn and got to 130 mph. At that time the limiter kicked in but a German told me that when that happens to quickly tap the accelerator. I did that and the car got to 138 mph before it kicked in for good. The car got totalled (not by me) with only 2500 miles. I have since ordered a GXP and I should have it by mid July. I'll post some updates and German reactions then!
