I've been to 160 with the dohc it's no joking matter. Going that fast is brutal on the car and driver. It's nerve racking I doubt I'll ever brake 200, I'm not sure I'd like to.

I've done 180 on a bike; it's interesting to travel faster than it's possible to fall from the sky...

How fast is it possible to fall from the sky? ... On average; I know it varies with altitude, air temp, etc.

I just got a single piece mark viii drive shaft ;) need to make sure everything else is tip-top and then go find a track....I'd like to peg the 140mph speedo...anything more than that, well, I don't know if I have it in me....ten years ago maybe, but now anything around 105-110 scares me a bit....need a good long banked track or something.

I'm a thrill seeker. 150 MPH, under the right conditions, with the right equipment, on the right road surface, is fine with me.
