Shawn, I knew you knew Didn't know if anyone else did!

Having gone as fast as I have, I'll share my thoughts:

1. Losing a tire balancing weight at 120 was so bad, had I been at 130, I would have lost control of the car.

2. Swerving to miss a raccoon at 105 was so hairy, I almost lost it. Hitting the raccoon at that speed would have nearly done me in.

3. Loosing a front tire in the triple digits would be devastating.

4. Each 10mph faster that you go above 100 doubles the risk of something bad happening. It'* like the Richter scale. Each whole number larger is a 10x increase in ground shaking.
