Not quite how I would have put it all, but yeah. Darwin had it right. Reckless behavior results in elimination from the gene pool to the benefit of the species. Adaptive and intelligent behaviour results in evolution of the species to the benifit of same.

No, it's not an attack on a member...just a re-quotation of Darwin's principles. Any similarity to real persons or events is unintentional...Your mileage may vary.

I was simply being facetious in my comments since I'm aware of Darwin's principles. It's too bad that it doesn't translate well on an internet forum.

Haven't had the Mustang much past 110 mph so far, on the back stretch at Mid Ohio. It's still on the stupid-skinny a/s tires it came with. Hopefully next spring it will get some much-needed wheels+tires.
is it the mustang govern at all?

That's just from removing the limiter? thats crazy, I didn't realize that v6 had that high of a top speed.

Here's the problem. You're trying to justify your bad decision making and poor behavior by pointing out the bad behavior of other drivers. This has nothing to do with why people are calling you out. The two things are mutually exclusive. While I understand that many people are killed by texting and driving, lane changing abruptly and not paying attention, that has nothing to do with you.

You willingly went 165 on a public highway and showed a blatant disregard for your safety and the safety of those around you. Don't point the finger at how other people drive in an attempt to justify your actions. That's really the pot calling the kettle black. It doesn't hold water and it won't stand up to basic logic.

They dont scan far enough back to account for a car almost tripling 65mph. Granny might pull a double lane change, having checked her rearview, and never looking back again, because she cleared far enough back and doesn't expect another vehicle to approach that fast.

Animals, well, that's the driver problem, however, if that animal gets that driver out of control, suddenly some family out for a drive has a 165mph, 4300lb missile coming at them, and suddenly it's their problem as well. So, in closing, if there is ANY traffic, going these speeds is irresponsible, IMO. Not that NY, in the fall, might have deer entering the roadway, right?
well said. I can respect the rest of those comments. I made the decision to let off throttle when I saw how far apart those cars are in the third lane and if any were to even move to middle i would instantly start to brake. I dont think I have ever seen anybody move from one side all the way to other unless they're trying to catch an exit from the left lane to the farthest right lane. Although I have not been driving as long as some of you have. Something I'll keep in mind nonethless.

I agree its not the smartest thing, I really wish they had an private open roads like you see in airports where you can pay just run your car for a straight mile. I generally try to drive hard in early mornings because traffic is light or non existent. At night time visibility is terrible, drunk drivers, deers harder to spot.

by no means am I trying to justify it. In our natural mind when we think 165 is crazy because its not a speed we're accustom to seeing, I'm just trying to simply say I'm more scared when I drive my vehicle and I see a car slicing through traffic and riding someones bumper or seeing a car on half of a lane and then the other half because they have a text that is more important than their life. Look I understand speeding 165 is not the smartest thing to do in the world, I don't need anyone telling me that. This is not my first time around the merry go round. People smoke knowing its terrible for them, they smoke when they're pregnant. This is the one stupid thing I do, I love to speed, I try to speed as controlled as possible. Yes things can happen, things can happen when I'm doing 70, I've been in more close calls with commute car where I drive DEFENSIVELY all the time then I EVER HAVE with my charger. I've had one close to call with my charger, guess what it was when a girl decided to just change lane when my car was right next to hers and i was doing the 5 over the speed limit, i was prepared to crash but somehow dodge it. No one needs to tell me speeding stupid, I know.

The thing that drives me nuts, we all act like we live perfect lives. that non of us have to a phase we push our cars over 100, is that any smarter.

While I don't agree with the OP driving during the day with other drivers (I'd have done it early in the morning) I don't see why the new SRT8s cant get above 170, back when I first got my SRT8 I was driving from Hampton to D.C for work and I hit 180 with no tune, it was in my EVIC for the longest time as being my highest recorded speed until I just had work done recently and it was reset with a battery disconnect. Took F-O-R-E-V-E-R to get from 170 to 180 though... Don't remember how long but it did hover around 178 get to 180 then drop to 179-180, 178 etc... aerodynamics FTL.

My run was done @ 3AM with zero traffic (didn't see a car the whole time, and for a long time after).

Mine's not. My 2000 Mustang GT Premium came with Goodyear Eagle ZR-Y rated tires. It goes until she runs out of thrust.

No trying to be a smart @$$, but what would a minivan full of KIDS be doing on the highway, there should be at least 1 adult in there!

My car's speed limit is stupidly set to 298 km/h which is around 188 mph. My only complain is the air noise that starts from 240 km/h till weirdly 285 km/h, then it gets quiet as if you're doing 50 mph. Handling is good, better in sport though due to the suspension hardening.

Removed the speed limited last night using my trinity and it amazingly got to 315 km/h could have done more but the road was almost over.
This was done on a 15 km long road at 3 a.m with no other cars.
