I think he was just making a point, that speeding that fast on a public road with other car's and pedestrians is stupid, which I agree with completely.

First ticket I got in 3 years and it was for going 15 over on hwy 7. 85km/h on a 70 zone.

yes that's the beuty of the high performance car i had the 97-328is at 215km and feels like at 110km/hr on north american car.

maxima at 200 feels like around 140

honda at 195 .... hold on the steering wheel very tight and don't even blink an eye ... you can feel the car is very light.

subaru outback sedan at 200 feels like 100 plenty of room to go and great traction to maneuver ( all wheel drive ) and stop in less than a dime ( dual pistons x-cross system )

now adays don't even think to do it. there are too many cars everywhere. the none experience driver endangering other people. without the right car .... endangering your self too...
insurance is too high, ppl hate speeder because speed limit here is only 100 on hi-way. unlike in germany autoban you better move your ass fast or get the hell out. i guess the best way to do it would be on the track. the occational 200 .... hmmm when the hi way really empty with the right car ..... hmmm give some more thoughts.

Do you remember WASAGA?

there is no pedestrians on the highways, if someone does 200 on public roads, he must be the biggest moron.

What? During Wasaga cruise when you, me, Julian and Jeff were cruising home we were hardly even speeding, we were going like 10-20km over at the most. It was Nick who took off on us after he saw those bikes pop some wheelies

Anyways, during most Max highway cruises if I don't speed up I'll get lost and loose all of you, one of the reasons I'm scared of the Max highway cruises. It's more fun in small groups as you can keep the speed under control as well.

No offense but you couldn't drive a 5 speed if your life depended on it.

Want to know why there is no power at 2nd gear? Maybe because when you shifted you kept the clutch depressed with your foot on the throttle for like 5 seconds before you shifted, I could hear you redlining it in neutral off gear when you were driving. When you depress the clutch, redlining it doesn't spin the flywheel, your actually slowing the flywheel down, thus when you shift, no power. Your just stalling the car. I didn't say anything because I didn't want to embarass you, but now that you bring it up, you can't drive man.

well i saw the speedometer go over 300. . .
so i dunno maybe i was hallucinating. . .


did anyone hear about those guys that were going 140 on rathburn. . .

im just wondering,
you might want to think of that the next time u speed

getting launched through your windshield into a tree and dying in the hospital cant be that fun. . .

or colliding with other objects in ur car and being killed instantly cant be that fun either
