Ive seen 142 unleashed out of my own foot on the pedal Not in the bonne though, Id say Ive touched just over 130 in the bonne on the Garden State Parkway.

If this kid was in Jerzey they'd probably drop it all to unsafe operation and the cop would have also written him for a Provisional drivers license violation. Pay probably 750 dollars in fines and have 2 points. (if he doesnt have any other serious violation)...and anybody here in jerzey knows exactly what im talking about. The courts here will keep you driving if they know they can make alot of $$$ off of you!

You would be amazed by the number of people who have done this, THEY just didn't get caught. Keep that in mind.
ditto... 150/55 in the 00....

Who says the parents bought it? It'* fairly probable that they did, but it is possible that the kid has been saving up and working a job to get this car. Parents probably didn't mind the choice of car because, honestly, if you aren't that familiar with cars, a WRX doesn't look that menacing.

Not defending his actions, just looking at all sides.
Part of his punishment should be a ride along with paramedics that are dispatched to highway accidents to see what the consequences are.

About the fastest I've gone is 110 since thats about all my car will allow. And that was on a road with NO CARS around. I can't possibly imagine going that fast on a public road safely ESPCIALLY with other cars around. That is just totally unsafe. I hope he really does get punished.

"Son, ah bin waitin' for someone like you to make an example of."

"Well officer, I got here as fast as i could."

1) The kid is going to get a bunch of notoriety. Not exactly what responsible adults, like Good Morning America, should do.

2) His parents who are freaked for about 6 or 7 good parental reasons, are going to get roasted like it was their fault.

3) The price of used WRXs just went up another grand.

And yes, if somebody did this in NJ on the Turnpike or the Garden State Parkway they would get pulled over for failing to yield to passing vehicles.

The kid was dumb, he wanted to make his curfew, but instead go pulled over.

140 by ANYONE is reckless on the street. Surfaces can have obstacles on them, sand, etc that weren't there last time you were there, street cars aren't designed for 140 continuous operation, well not anything US or japanese....

I'm surprised it isn't a felony where he was.

Frankly any parent who lets their 16 year old drive a WRX/STi (who hasn't been to track days and what not already) is an idiot as well. A normal WRX on it'* own is still pretty high strung for a new driver. AWD of these cars gives a false sense of security.

That'* a LeMans racer that'* street legalized...

Obviously things such as some hi-po german cars are built to fly on the autobahn, and some sports cars, and supercars.
