LOL, this was wicked scary..

Alright a few days ago I was cruzing about 112 mph on I80, and whell I was looking in the review mirror and I seen this car... and whell I said that it looks like a po.. whhell I decided to slow down and good thing I did.. he got right up on my a$$ and followed my up the upramp and once he could pass he took off so quick.. he probably thought that the "speeder" was way up there still going very quick. LOL long story short I went home and no I didnt want a ticket so I went the so called "limit" lol.

LOL....You "cruise" at 112mph.

So it wasn't a cop but pretended to be one?

I once got up to 100mph and was closing in on a black unmarked Crown Victoria, just in case I was thinking what if right?...hold and behold it was a cop and he puts his blue lights on that are in the car just to warn me and I pass him slow. Scary nevertheless.

I believe the limiter on SE's is 118. I know mine has seen it at least once. I could swear I saw 120 but in another older thread some people were saying it was 118.

I can't recall the exact numbers and i'm too lazy to look for the thread, but i'm pretty sure the engine has nothing to do with it. Like the SE/ES's can do 118, but the R/T's can do almost 150 or so. Don't quote me on this though, my half-year memory is not so good, lol.

Wow I didnt mean for it to go that way.. just a real life story thats all. I apologize for the incovience, and will make sure i have a picture of the speedo or video of the whole thing next time.......... lol though.... someone who had my car before me took it to a "shop" and it said the tcm/pcm or whatever it was.. well it said it was reprogramed in 04.. I dont know what was done but it does say it on this cool sticker I have.. anyways yes I like to cruize at 100+ because I love to go fast when ever I get the chance wheather or not I have a radar detector... get a speeding ticket.. or whatever I just like to live my life to the fullest or the best I can, have fun while I can and enjoy my life the way I would like to..... because if I die tomorrow.... what would I have accomplished......... nothing. (also it was a cop it had the CO and the the unit number 87, with the sherriff tag on the side with the red and blue lights on the top with the spot light on the side and the nice little push bar on the front.... so I believe it was a real copper lol)

That's cool bro. I didn't know that an Intrepid can get up to 118mph.

I've had my R/T to 144 (GPS verified since the speedo only goes to 120).
