    My friend's father works for some company that tests and manufactures catylitic converters for different cars. The way they test them is to run the motors hard for up to 100 hours in order to "age" the cats to test their effeciency. They run the motors pretty hard at different precent throttles. They just use fans to cool the motors, so my guess is that they do not overheat.

    Highly unlikely unless you have some other problem(s) with the car that would cause a chain of events leading to over heating.

    Driving at 100+ for any length of time WILL cause you to burn a hell of a lot more gas, however.

    Only out in the middle of nowhere (and I mean nowhere - "remote" America) have I ever seen people get away with it. Parts of West Texas would qualify, but those Rangers are hardasses
    funny, the trooper i passed going east at 85 mph in my trans am outside bozeman didn't blink an eye. i came up on slower traffic, went around them and then went back to 100+ for a couple of more hours. this was my first trip home after the reasonable and prudent went into effect.

    it's a lot safer concentrating on your side of the interstate than watching the other side for highway patrol cars. need to realize that in MT it still isn't unusual to have no cars for a mile or more ahead of and/or behind you on the interstate.

    but driving that fast can wear you out so after about 400 miles i slowed down to 85 and got passed by some lady in an old beat up chevy with a kid in the back!

    some low life who abused the limit (driving way too fast on a hilly, curvy 2-lane highway) and claimed to be an ex-NASCAR driver ruined the whole deal for everybody. court said the law was too vague. at least he had to spend some time in jail.

    on another trip i did hear a trooper on my scanner telling his supervisor about a porsche club going ~ 90 and asking if he should pull them over.

    so i slowed down...

    for a few miles.
