I was just wondering how often everyone hits 100mph. I usually hit it about twice a week in my normal driving. I always hit at least 80 mph and usually cruise at that speed. Now I live in San Diego where the normal speed is about 70. I don't think I'm abnomal, except for the occasion triple digits.

By the way, I have a red WRX and no speeding tickets. I guess the cops where I live have better things to do than chase me.:D

once a month MAYBE, if that. Ive done it in the past month on a drive but thats about it. And I broke it a few times tuning the boost controller after the stg 4 install. but daily driving, VERY rarely.

i drive about 80 on average on the freeway and go about 100 late nights just before exiting the freeway usually - [quick exit in case a cop sees me]

You should watch out about speeding in the SD area, lots of CHP on the 5.

I've had my car a year and a half, probably only gone over 100 (not counting at the track) ~6 times. Hit it most of those times going to the STPR in Penn. Those roads just beg you to go fast. Roads in WV are the same way.

Too many to count. Had my 140mph video but I deleted it.

Not all that often. I only broke her in a month and a half, so I haven't beat on her that hard yet.
Two things -

1. Going 100 in this car is hardly beating on it...come on.

2. I have done this myself maybe 5 or 6 times in the almost 2 years I've owned the car.

Driving wrecklessly, with other people around is always wrong, but I think we all have moment where the coast is clear and we can let her rip. And take our lumps if the rollers show up in the rear window.

Once per day, its unhealthy not to.
Amen, preach it brother:D

I usually hit 100 every other day etc (dependant on where im driving). But the car is always running through the gears:D . My min per day is like 80 etc when i run it for a few sec etc. But if i get ont he highway forget it, the off ramp alone ill be in the triple digits. I drive fast, no way around it. Im surprised i dont have any tickets for those speeds etc. The only time i got a ticket, i wasnt even speeding etc (dumb cop guestimated my speed with his eyes).

They cant give you a ticket for that.

Cool, I'm not the only speed demon!

I should note that I only drive really fast when it is safe. I don't swerve through traffic or anything like that. I also get off work cose to midnight at the hospital so there is always lots of open road on my way home (I-15).

I agree, it is a health issue. You must go fast to introduce a good amount of joy into your life. Just do it safely.

I've only had up to 130 once. I hit the speed limiter on my auto. But it was still pulling strongly up until that point.

Can't they take your car away temporarily if they catch you going 100 MPH or more? Yeah I'm sure it's fun, but that would suck if you got caught and they took your car away for wreckless driving or whatever.
