Yeah, hard to believe people survive doing things that can easily get them killed.

I guess the universe is just a magical place.

By that logic, surviving risky behavior means it's not really risky. I guess that means ever soldier from WWII that survived charging a machine gun nest that was firing at them can conclude that bullets aren't deadly.

Brilliant.

It doesn't matter what tires are on the car. Shoot just pulling out of your driveway and driving down the road, even at the speed limit, is dangerous. I don't condone driving that fast on public roads and have already made that clear. Not sure where you are trying to go with this.

I hit 141 with my Predator powered but otherwise stock 2008 3.5L SE+

So, yeah... they actually do go that fast.

Should I be concerned my brandy new drag radials are not speed rated?

If you're going to go fast, do yourself a favor and 1. drive on a road designed for high speed and 2. put some ZR tires on it before you crank up the limiter.
