    Its not very difficult to get to 140MPH in a stock wrx. You just need a long enough stretch of road (straight) and pray theres no cops, traffic, or animals/debris on the road.

    I 15 Northbound from LA to Vegas during one of many Late night Vegas runs. I hit 140 no problem.

    The fastest I have ever gone was in my 99 Prelude doin 146MPH going to Laughlin, until I saw a big sign that said "BUMPS AHEAD" and I left off and that was that.

    I try not to do that too much though anymore, I dont wanna worry the wifey. Plus I wouldnt recommend since it is waaayy too dangerous, and there are always too many variables that could lead to an accident. The open road can be too unpredictable save it for a track.

    120 is dangerous. 140 is exponentially so.

    A confession:

    Back in the summer 2006 I had by far the best opportunity in my nearly thirty years of driving to test the top speed of the car I happened to be driving (me WRX). Without going into details I had 4+ miles of open, straight, smooth interstate in front of me with not a car in sight in front or behind me.

    Stage two allowed for 140+ until I ran out of speedometer. Scary fast – I do not recommend anyone try this. If it means anything I told a retired police chief who works where I do the story. He chuckled and smiled.

    Sorry I should have clarified...I race high speed autox, and it's not SCCA. Time trial based track racing.
