Yes, speeding tickets suck, but you clearly know nothing about time travel. You won't go back in time until you hit 88 mph. And don't even get me started about the E46 not having a flux capacitor.

I've gone 142 in my car, couldnt go faster because at the time I didnt have Z-rated tires and I feared my tires wouldnt hold. I have also gone around 140 or 145 in my moms SL500.

Fastest I've gone was 130 to 132 on the freeway trying to get rid of an IS. That pretty interesting since the IS had a higher top speed. I was flooring my car but the computer didn't let me go pass 132.

Fastest I've been been brave enough to do/had enough power to do so far was 135 in my '78 Camaro (also the worst handling car I've owned). Not too bad for a 3-spd auto (although it was all over the place at the time - needed 2 lanes to keep it straight).

I had my '93 MX-3 (V6) on cruise control @125 for 20 minutes once, and I had my lil 4-banger '98 Civic EX on cruise control at 100 coming back from FL for an hour last year.
