I know you picked up that sign that was taken away in a storm. How could it have cleared up so much that you could pull this off? Also, great video. I'm thoroughly impressed by your car.

Crazy and not very smart. I'll assume this was conducted in a safe environment meant for such things. Because to suggest that one would go these speeds on a street somewhere would be stupid....which i cannot condone, of course.

Couldn't agree more. I'd elaborate, but what I have to say wouldn't be worded quite as nice.

I think the reason you have been identified here is because of the excessive speed (although I have my own opinions on excess speed). Not to pick on you but having been paralyzed due to a traumatic injury, you of all people should know what trauma can result in. Did you think these sorts of speeds would result in less serious injury? This clearly put others at significant risk. It'* unfortunate that you had a bad Christmas, but this sort of behaviour may well have caused your friends and their families to have a bad Christmas too (although they should have been smart enough not to be in the car with you).

No wait a minute. We all mod our cars to make them faster and handle better. Tell me who has spent $$$ on there car and has not driven it a little too fast to see if they could. I say congrats on your very fast run. I am happy you had passenger consent first and obviously the road conditions where good or you would be dead now. My future advice would be to go to a track. But if you have road racing stories, only share them in a pm so you don't get flack.
