I hit a 101 going down the interstate. I was passing trucks and cars weaving back and forth slowly.

It didn't shake at all really... it was a little scary. Things fly past you pretty fast.

I have a radar detector so I have never even been pulled over let alone ticketed, but by the time I was 17 I had been in 2 accidents so even though it's been almost 3 years since my last accident my insurance is far from dirt cheap.

In the 95 black ZJ ( current jeep)
A little shy of 90 in this ZJ , 85 in second gear at about 4.5k RPM. That was racing my friends civic, i had to back off 20 mph in the middle of second gear to let him catch up

About 75-80 another time, racing a built civic. We could hear him banging gears, the VTEC engaging, and i just dropped it down to second and smoked him at 3k, half throttle

But that was the last time ive gotten on it that much. I only do it when the ricers think theyre tough, they look shocked when they get smoked by a ZJ.

In the 95 chargold ZJ

Fastest ever on the interstate was in my last ZJ. a little over 90 passing a tahoe, then an hour later my oil pump blew apart. Around 95 it gets pretty dang wobbly even in a stock ZJ. I haven't gotten all the way on the black ZJ for fear of blowing another oil pump. It may have been just going bad or caused by it, but ill never know so im not doing it again.
