    cant imagine doing 170mph,many many years ago I buried the needle in my 68 charger on a long straight stretch of highway and it scared the poo out of me-everything was a blur and felt like I was going 300,never again

    You can bet you white a $$ that if I'll ever hit the lottery,I'll be owning a Lamborghini Aventador,find a 4 lane Highway at night with the least amount of traffic,and buried my right foot to the floor!!! At least one time. Lol

    complaining about using that performance on public roadways and potentially endangering the lives of others, to be clear

    Bas a$$ car!! Not sure about this place on the above link,but that is a place in Las Vegas that rent out exotic car,and the have a GPS tracking device that obviously tracks everything from RPM to MPH. You have to sign on the dotted line that you don't go above certain speeds.

    I've had my 13 F150 EcoBoost up to 130+ many times data logging. Feels like you are doing 80. Its weird. Being a truck, once you hit 120-130 its like you hit a brick wall.lol Just puching too much air at that speed.
    When I was young and completely stupid I took my 91 Tauras SHO up to what looked like 140 on the speedo.

    What "speed" are you trying to say the COPO can't hit?

    If you're referring to 171 MPH - you're probably right - the COPO is a drag car that's primary function is to drive a quarter mile at a time. Top speed probably around 150 in the quarter.

    I'm not saying that it couldn't hit that top speed, it would be wounding out to get there.

    Since only 2-3 of us here have actually been 171 mph plus, and we just lost one of the Kings of dragracing Sunday
    in an accident that happened in the blink of an eye.
    I have to say as calmly as possible, some of you clueless fools have absolutely zero idea just how fast 171 mph truly is.
    There is no way in hell some innocent family would ever expect some loser to be flying down a street or highway that fast.
    Why would they!!!!

    I know for a fact a split second hesitation when covering that much ground per second can be catastrophic.
    I missed my spot on a short track throwing the chutes and I missed the turn
    and almost ended up seeing the beach, up close and personal!!!!
