Post em if you got them. :lol: For sake of argument the speed is by GPS not the speedo. It was taken in an OHV area, so perfectly legal and I had a co-driver snap the shot. Not looking for arguments just others sweet top speed photos :)

Why the hell would you do that on a public road with oncoming traffic?

Just so you guys know, if your going 100 mph, it takes about 280 feet to stop. Add in reaction/recognition time, and the distance to stop is about 500 feet.

**edit:

Not so sure about the number I used for the 100-0 distance. Just read that a ferrari 430 255 feet to stop from 100 and it's one of the few cars that can stop in <100' from 60.

But you get the idea, it takes a long fucking time to stop from 100.

LOL, you make a point, but, there's no reason? LOL. I appreciate the knowledge, and all, but when i'm on an unrestricted (and relatively quiet TBF) road, i'm not gonna resist temptation.

The only part I will add to this thread is the stock MSM hits the low rev limit at 130mph and can't go above it. Gets there quick and tops out quick. That is all
