    Don't know on Japanese cars. Never had one do it, but then the only ones that I have had up to high enough speeds was a MRII Turbo and a Honda Prelude. Both manual and both sports cars. Also the only time I have ever owned a Japanese make was when I was stationed on Okinawa, not many places where you can get high enough to check it out.

    On American cars that I know of, type of trans doesn't matter. Most GMs require you to get the upgraded suspensions and tires also. My Z-28 doesn't have it, but then, it is a Z-28 with top of line, for stock, suspensions system and tires and is a manual. It can go above speedometer reading but available torque limits it to around 4200 rpms in 5th gear (approx 155) (prior to exhaust upgrade). When I looked at newer ones, suspension/tire options not trans options governed it. My 06 Monte Carlo SS with the V-8 and an auto didn't have it. Or if it did, it was set above 145.

    Generally, since I believe in personal freedom, I do NOT think endangering yourself should be against the law. Under the theory that it should be? Basically everything but saying inside a padded cubical, eating vitamin enriched tofu and drinking sterilized water should be criminal.

    The CORE of freedom should be that you can do any damn thing you want provided it does not substantively endanger others.

    Should drivers have to take a test every 4 years when they re-up on their driver's license??
    Should shooters have to prove they know WTF they are doing with their guns every 4, 3, 2, or one year, TBA??
    Should the State stop giving paper/pencil tests when you re-up with speeding tickets in that cyle ?

    130 no problem, know some, except for the problem of traffic. Never would do it at night, even in Germany, at those kinds of speeds, even a rabbit running out can take you out. Too many critters on the roads at night.

    Nonsensical? Why?

    Makes perfect sense. You play by the rules, you keep your privilege.

    If there are long stretches of road that people want to fight for increased speed limits, go for it.

    Even if it damages the financial stability of an Insurance company..

    Does that include any illicit drug or illicit consensual act ?

    So it sounds kind of hit and miss and I likely won't hit one anyway as I rarely drive over 85mph. My ex's kicked of at 90mph. Scared the crap out him as he had no idea that it would happen the first time.
    The sort of fun part of that story is that about two weeks later I was running the same length southern edge of WY, at about 2-3am, I like driving long distances at night. I was the only one on the road for miles except apparently a cop. I was going the speed limit. So he pulls up next to me and takes off. Fine. Slows down gets next to me again, flashes his lights and takes off. Fine. Does it again, so now I'm thinking there's an emergency. This is before cell phones, and I was on my way to get my kids from my ex. Therefore after the third time I take off and follow this cop whose lights are now out and so I'm following and following, we're going about 95mph and about 300miles later he zips up an off ramp ahead of me, goes to the overpass, flashes his lights twice, and heads back the way he came.
    Most bizarre considering what I had been told over and over about WY cops.

    I had a Challenger SRT8 back in 09. I spent extra money on it to make it go faster. I was pulled over once for 143 in a 55. 4 lane rd with no cars on the road but me an him. I received a warning because I pulled over immediately. He asked to see the motor, I obliged.
