I used I-95. so i'd say about oh...5+ miles. I also had firm setting on the stock supension.She never came off the road. My Sc was bone stock. Damn I miss her

In my younger days, I used to be coming home from school late at night (sober), so I had a good, straight, freshly-paved section of I-84 to set on fire nightly. Went from 45 up to 108 surprisingly quickly for a stock car, and it still begged for more…*save for the governor, which wanted to throw me through the windshield.

There was also the time when I obliterated a section of Route 8. Google Maps says that it takes about 31 minutes to go from Winsted to Waterbury. I respectfully disagree. 22 minutes plus three cop cars.

Well did it twice again today.. Luckily the WOT was from stop... but both times i didnt realize the cop sitting there.. First one at 5 this morning just getting on I-69 near swatrz Creek in Michigan decide i want to get ome quickly so i jame on it... the first turn around theres a cop sitting (prolly 2 tenths of a mile on the e-way) i was already at about 80 when i finally saw the car... Luckily no movement. Then on my way to work at 6:30am i was on some main roads and got stopped by a school bus. I had a passing lane when the lights went off on the bus so i lit it up... Then realized there was a line of 3 cop cars waiting to go into the station right there.... WOW luckily i didnt get over 45 (speed limit) and all i had was a cop stare me down.. By the way a cop can Hear a bonnie from a mile away

Yeah the look i got was priceless... Then they just proceded to turn into the station... Normally i think the safest place to speed is in front of the po po station. They never have speed traps set up there
