Lets just say you dont want to be caught on the hwy doing it, and you will need higher rated tires. I think the fastest is 201 mph. 150-175 have been done by a select few.

Tires yes, but gotta think aerodynamics, car weight, lift and drag etc at those speeds.

Unless you are properly suited to go those speeds....dont. Even with a chip.

Obviously, he is going to need heavy mods anyway to get up in that rare air.
