haha Matt, that speedo twitch comment reminds me, this is what happens when you top out a fieros speedo YouTube - V8 Fiero - Speedometer Spin
in the vid he hits the limit of the speedo right as he shifts into 3rd.
lol what i meant is the speedo has no more numbers after where the needle was at third gear. heres a pic of what i mean. you have the get the needle back to zero to get it to spin..
EDIT: the pic is of a fiero guage cluster

Honestly, driving over 85 in a Jeep of any kind other than the SRT8 is foolhardy at best. Twitchy steering, scary handling. That's at stock. I think keeping it to the speed limit is probably best. They're not meant for speed, and going 100+ is definitely speeding anywhere in the US or Canada. It's fun to see what they can do, but I don't really think I'd try it again. It's not worth the risk. Either of life, limb, or of getting a ticket.
I can steer, but Jeep steering was never meant for performance racing. It gets very twitchy at that speed. One gust of wind, one bump in the road, or one miscalculation, and you could lose it easily. I tried to see what she could do once, and I learned that I don't ever want to do it again. It's just not worth the 'thrill.' Someday I'll get a Subaru for that.

its definitely still dangerous, but its not like your dipping through traffic at that speed. a jeep would flip in a second if you tried to move more then just a little at that speed.
