So, am I the ONLY guy who's going to call BS on this one?

First off, where in the U.S. are you going to find a road smooth and straight enough to get a Fox body Mustang up to near 200 MPH?

Secondly, how much power are you making to get it close to 200 MPH? Given the aerodynamics and suspension on the Fox platform, I'm going to suggest you'll need north of 600 HP to get close to that.

Third, how did you determine 197.7 MPH? If the cop clocked you at 180 MPH (which I have a much easier time believing...), how did you show 197.7? No Ford analog speedometer is going to give you single digit accuracy, much less accuracy to the tenths.

Something smells a little fishy here....

I'm not really an asshole, I just play one on the Internet
