Speedy Gonzales!

I know I'm not the only one.I rememember
Jim's 500e said,if your'e over 1mph.over
the speed limit,your speeding.5.30A.M.
Going fishing at Highway 14,the road is clear,
the V1 is so quite as well,I have to know
what she can do.I can't resist the temptation.
Slowly burried my right foot,before I know it,
140mph.!!!the fastest I drove.(in a very luxurious
fashion).I know,I endangered myself and some
deer crossing,but,,,the situation brought the
devil out of me.It stay there for about 1min.
till I got back to my senses.Never Again!!!

Red face this with or without the resistor in place? also, what was stability of vehicle at such speeds? also, why didn't you go any faster? I mean...there is not much left between 140mph and the limiter...why u not just hit limiter???

also...I wanna learn how to flyfish...I saw it on A River Runs Through looks so relaxing...and girl in the movie was not bad either...he he he...I think I should do more Vancouver, BC good place to flyfish? You need creeks to flyfish right??? Damn it...I dunno where are creeks...all I know is where in Richmond are the karoke and bbtea houses where the kewt aZian girls hang bad...*sigh*...oh god...I have ultimate do you put a flyfishing rod into ur car??? is it collapsible/telescopic??? 'cause ur W124 has no rear seat passthrough!

Effortless and exilerating!! Isn't it? Just brought up the car to 145ish last Thursday nite myself... I do think once you do it, the more you'll want to keep doing it. It can't be wrong ...and that's what I'll tell the cop as he cuffs me.

HI Manny- -

curious- - did you do 140mph in an 500e/e500?

...I thought other W124's were factory limited to 130mph?

Ducky,resistor is resting at the arm rest
compartment.The car is very stable at high speed.
At that time,I wish the car is lowered,I can feel
a little loosenes at the steering wheel thats
why I didn't pushed her all the way.Flyfishing
is fun.Learn and can pick up asian chicks
quick.All my fly rods are 9'and three pieces,so
I can easily store it in the trunk.
Jim,its addicting.Get a V1.Its worth it.
Fad,Its an E420.Theres a liitle bit more
to the pedal,but,,,I don't have the guts.
I have my digicam w/ me,but at that speed
you have to concintrate.The funny thing is,
when I got home,I asked myself,what if?
I'm glad I'm alive.Will I do it again?
Certainly!If I'm in the same exact situation.
