I guess I have been watching to many cop and car chases in Calif on You Tube. if they can only do 107 then I think you don't want to get into a car chase with the CHP. they will PIT you before you can say BOO

My 2005 Cummins would stop pulling at 109 until I disabled it. I've never tried my 2016.

I don't want to drive mine at 109 or anywhere else north of 80. Got that out of my system years ago when speed got expensive.

Driving on the gravel roads I quite often found myself hitting the speed limiter with my old Duramax. Our Acura TSX had a top end of 242 km/h. Good thing it only has a little 4 cilinder engine, I don't think I have the self discipline necessary to drive a fast car slow.

Aw, geez, man, that's awful! I dunno how you can stand it. You need to buy a Bugatti, or at least a Ferrari so you can do at least 200.

Couldn't tow squat, but hey, at 200 mph, who cares?


I may be wrong but I think a Ferrari with a sunroof will tow a 5th wheel, but be sure to get the large diameter pin. :-)

If I were going that route, I'd choose a Staggerwing and run circles around everyone.

Reminds me of when I was as stupid kid. Had the 1978 vintage Dodge full size van...you know where you would turn the wheel 20 degrees before the front tire started to turn...got it up to around 105 on a straight level backroad. Scared the poo out of me and I backed off and never tried it again.
