    well i live between some suburbs in a town of 7000 ppl which is still too much to be drivin 90-100mph on even country roads. all the roads ou there are hilly, curvy, and have trees/houses along them so theres really nowhere to let it fly

    I drove our 2002 TA from Butte MT to Missoula MT at over 110MPH the WHOLE way it would hit 120-130 once in awhile. It was about 140 mile trip. MT for a while had not posted speed limit. "any reasonable speed". The road had some curves but nice and straight blue skies and no cops.

    there's actually roads where you can do that!!!!... I need to get off this Island...LOL... just kidding...


    well...if our Rental Volvo did 90-100mph average in the Florida TurnPike... and was doing fine... (even while trying to chase down a beautiful Ford GT at 120+)... then I think our cars can do it too...

    If a 6-speed with stock gears, it'll be turning less than 2,500 rpm. No problems.

    You should have no problems going that fast. When I had my 93 formula I ran 85-110 on a 90 mile stretch of interstate and never had a single problem during the trip or after it.

    IL drivers are bad, in chicago when the house of blues was on fire my friend Jimmy was hit 4 times and they all just drove off, one lady hit us then started yelling at us and we were in a parking spot parked.
