      130? That is literally the top of 3rd gear in this car. Still have four to go.

        True, but hitting the pole at 130 would explain the carnage & it's a bit crazy on public roads.

            Yeah. I made my son read this thread, he is building a 2.7i for his car, and I lean on him constantly. Do not race on public roads.

            We all did it when we were young. I damn near blew up my dads e28, I topped out my e30 back in the late ‘90’s. Going 130 isn’t that big a deal on the right roads if you understand physics. If you sneeze at any faster than that then you’re dead. A twitch and a counter action, game over.

            I love seeing people posting on social media “no racing on public roads”. There are some good kids out there. I hate seeing people die on the roads but I hate even more thinking about what could happen to innocent others. If they didn’t hit that pole and plowed into a family of parent and children I would really have a tougher time with it. Hell, I watch big trucks driving like hell on 2 lane roads around here and think “damn, I’m glad my wife is at work right now”.
