Long story short... I was cruising @ over 100-135mph on I-5 today coming from Redding going to Sacramento Before the V1/your ghetto radar detector went off...

Did 100+ for a good hour and a half (V1 equipped of course... saved my ass 6 times)

Question is what's the longest window of time you have had going over 100MPH+

:drunk

about 30 seconds, then i get scared of getting a ticket.

what's your gas mileage like holding over 100mph for that long?

maybe 30 seconds, then the road ran out.

where i live if you go 100+ for too long in any direction, you will end up in the pacific ocean.

Nice Signature Asio.
I've done 90-100 for 45 minutes at a time driving back from Dallas on several occasions. Most recently in the Sequoia last week.

yea i got scared doing 118 at 3800-4500rpm in 5th gear in ohio for about a min, saw a trooper going on the opposite direction so i slowed down, he turned around and got me at 77 in a 55. good thing it was just a ticket, nothing more. havent gone above 110 ever since.

comin home from prom this year ( coming home i went south instead of north accidently and took me 30 miles out because i wasnt paying attention) it was 3 in the morning and i maxed out the e30 at 138 for a good 10 minutes. I stopped when i saw another car but i think i stayed around 100 for the rest of the trip

really late for work a few weekends ago after a night of drinking. needless my car fluxuated between speeds of 180kms to 240kms, i think i was doing 240kms for a good 2 mintues, (which isnt good for the car) i did an oil change that night. i got from home to work which usually takes an hour and 15-30 minutes , in 34 minutes.

i got up to 110 mph the other morning. it was really dark out...well...it was four in the morning. i just got off work and there was a stretch of freeway that wasn't visible to the oncoming side and there was only one car way ahead of me and none behind me. i stepped on it and flew down the road. made it to right around 110 mph. i whizzed by this other car like it was parked and then decided to tone it down, as there was a state police station a mile ahead. so, for about 30 sec. i was cruisin' in my "little wonder." (to quote david bowie) man it was nice. i need to go to germany and buy my next car...do the tour on the bitchin' roads they have out there and bring it home with me. maybe then i could have the real zoll plate. :wub:

I held 100-110 for a good hour with occasionally increases to 125 and one up to 140 for about 2 minutes or so. Please note, I was in a Mercedes C-Class Sedan on the German autobahn, the A-7, south of Wurzburg. :driving

Here in the states, held 100 for about 10 minutes on Ocean Parkway with one brief run up to 120. Then the road went to shjt and kicked it back to 80. Got off to catch the causeway north and immediately picked off K band. Was behind a VW jetta doing 40 on the ramp. Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good.

:gulp

now the only problem with the autobahn part is the "mercedes" thing....eewwwwww... :p
had you said, "the z3 that i special ordered from the states and picked up oversea's....only to tour germany and parts of europe in." you would have been my hero.

Last week when I had a roadtrip to Arkansas, I tied my land speed record. 135-137 in the bimmer (Speed limiter removed by shark injector) It still had a little more to go (not much) but there was too much traffic/no radar detector/ and scared of the wife beating my ass if I got a ticket going over 100. :unsure:
