I do have some high speed experience at Bonneville. I took a Ford Freestar out there and it was stable as can be. It maxed out at 105 mph and became really boring really fast. Then I decided to do some donuts. Just so you know, the salt flats have an amazing amount of grip and you can get a mini-van up on 2 wheels. In addition to that, I was completely lost and it took me about 30 minutes to find my way back. None of these problems had anything to do with that we (there were 5 of us in the van) were going from Sears Point to Miller (between two Grand-Am races) and we were.... let's say, having a good time doing some 12oz curls.

I literally laughed out loud.
