As some of you know. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina. Last weekend they opened up a new highway (485). Its a road that circles the city of Charlotte. Well...... I figured that the cops would be on it the weekend of the opening. So today I went out for a speed test. I first went down it for 5 exits to make shure there were no cops, and then it was time to turn around and floor it. As I was cruz'n at 130mph I was flying past cars. Well as I passed a gold Doge Stratus I noticed that there was a cop sitting right in the driver seat. As I passed my radar detector went nuts. [censored]....I was thinking if I didn't have my damn bike rack on the top of the car I could atleast get 135-140mph since it is a wind hog. Then I figured out hey its a Dodge what do I have to worry about. Well I didn't. I just got off at the next exit and took the long way home.

2003 Nissan Altima V6. Since it justed opened there are NO cars around. I passed only 4 cars in 3 miles. Ohh and the speed limit is 65mph. Only in North Carolina will they build a 4 lane highway and make it 65mph.

thats just crazy rudy, I guess you have to redo the "how dodgy are you"-test

My dad once drove at 218km/h (136mph) with our bmw 528i at a german highway (where there are no speed limits). The boardcomputer saves the max.speed ever. lol

Damn, the fastest I have ever driven down a highway is like 80mph. In New York they will have helicopters on you in a matter of seconds if you manage to dodge the cop on the highway.

The fastest I've been was in a modded '97 Supra manual...(was putting about 650hp to the ground). I got to 210mph with that beast. This was of course on a section of the highway in the middle of the country outside of city limits, so there were fewer cars.

Man, was they ever fun...

Oh, and it got there in less then 12 seconds.

Crazy kids, what are we to do with you

The fastest I've been is 175mph in my old '68 Dodge Polara. Of course it wasn't stock

Those days are way over for me. Don't feel the need for speed except on my proc. Just watch it guys, there are a lot of people on the roads today. Don't want to hear about any of you winding up as a smear on the road, or you taking out a mini van full of kids.

Fastest I have been is 163 MPH on the CBR929RR. Nothing like being tucked up on two wheels hoping nothing hits ya. I still had alot of throttle left but I was running out of road. I love speed.
