    I probanly know who it was if they were from PA, thats right near the area where I went to HS. And they'd have been in my class given the age.

    Ya 140 in my B16 coupe and same floaty feeling here. Needs stronger suspension! Regardless, my Y21 trans tops out in gear ratio at ~150, which isn't that fast IMO.

    But it's not really fun going that fast in a torque-less car. You have to cover 2 miles to reach 150.... I'd rather go fast for the type of roads I'm on, as in limited by corners so I'm not maxing my car out.

    when i am speeding and see a cop, i assuming he is going to come after me. i don't "run", but i'll go to the next exit and go to a gas station before he can catch up.

    yea, he really was close to NJ
    do 12771 if you want to see it on google maps
    the greenville google defaults to is towards albany

    he could have just kept hopping between NY, NJ and PA

    then hed probably get beaten by a cop and thrown in the pen.

    I got my old Stanza Hatchback up above 120mph when I was a young lad. Thing was so old it still said Nissan/Datsun on the back. I loved that car. I finally cracked the engine block. Used to drive it down Newbury street in Boston belching white clouds of smoke onto those rich bitch latte loving blankity blanks. It was like spyhunter smoke screen action. It was glorious. I cried when the tow truck took it away... and i was like 25 or something...

    My crx would get floaty feeling around 120, but then it would firm back up 130+. Was odd.

    air does weird things as you get to higher speeds, and is about the only time that giant wing might do something.

    also, if you see a cop, don't slam on your brakes, keep a constant speed. Slamming on the brakes is an admission of guilt, and usually useless.

    After certain speeds, cops don't even bother.

    Yeah, how did that cop catch someone doing 138 if he was at a dead stop?

    Thats a good way of putting it....its always a plan I use just dip down a street and if they say anything just say I wanted to get off the main road for your protection.

    I've had my civic to 125. I just don't like pushing boost on stock internals for long periods of time at high rpm's. I have no doubt it will tach out at 160:D. Now my maxima on the other hand, has seen 140.
