If you do more than 30mph over in a 70 zone, you are virtually guaranteed a ban. They were pulling people again last night on the A12.

Well.. 105mph is 170km/h, which is faster than I regularly drive... But all in all, not that fast..

Makes me wonder what would have happened to me if I hadn't gotten off when I did 168mph in 55mph zone...

Yeah.. You generally only get caught / have a close call for something like that once.

I have not driven 168mph (270km/h) since... Nor do I think I ever will again. At least on a public road...

270 klicks, I really have to get myself a 9-5 Aero now

My daily commute usually has me with at least one nice opportunity to hit 155-160km/h, particularly when going home...

You have to mod it to do that. Usually the governer kicks in at 155mph / 250km/h, but the BSR update takes care of that, and gives it enough power to go all the way up to the redline in 5th which is about 175mph / 280km/h

(if you can find a long enough straight that is, cause even with the remarkable saab handling, I would imagine turns at that speed rating low on the fun scale, and high on the pain scale)

I'm guessing that if the car had been RWD or AWD they would have geared it lower, and given it more acceleration, sacrificing some top end...

Cool High priced deodorant..

Well where to start? First of all ban is a deodorant here. Well they didn't shoot him, only made him more presentable.

I once without knowing it, out ran an unmarked car. It was unmarked The road block was fun though. They forced me to drive with out a license for 30 days. Good practice, 30 days of slow in the middle of the pack stuff. About 20 years ago. Since then I'm clean.

BTW what ever happened to Lexicop?
