    It's true. We like to bitch, but the truth is our road manners are generally just not that bad.

    My fathers Cadillac STS had no limiter, and I thought I had the sports car. He left me in the dust.
    My SRT-8 had a limiter as well, but the Predator tuner took car of that

    Poor people shouldn't have cars in the first place, so there wouldn't be an issue that he can't pay the fine.

    You can't outrun the radio signal no matter how fast you drive.

    The US Top Gear is a cheap copy of the UK show. They are redoing al of the UK shows they have done over the years, but without all the comedy and information.

    It is an extremely weak show and they had better put their spin on it or they will all be out of a job, again.

    Now the question is how fair was that to everyone else that he had a car like that AND how can the government get it for the government to sell and pocket the money or it to be a toy for ranking detectives to drive?

    Maybe to answer the OP I need to tell the driver's life history, his economic circumstance and how he came to afford the car before people can decide how much he doesn't deserve his ZR1.

    For example, if he is a super wealthy evil businessman, hell no he doesn't deserve it. BUT if he came up with the money because he sued a Home Depot store he claimed he slipped and fell in, then hell yes he deserves it and more, more, more. Only victims of life's unfairness "deserve" a car like that.
    Maybe he rented the car and it wasn't really his.

    True. But depending on the number of exits available and how easily identifiable you were from the cop's perspective, it might be possible to avoid them.

    Still....probably not a good idea.

    We are also afraid of getting sued.

    I didn't want to make any changes like that on my car because I am not smarter than the engineers that made the car.

    If you were racing your car, that is a different story, but I was driving mine on the road.

    I wanted to go faster coming down that last hill from California into Nevada, but at 106 MPH my engine shut down.

    I drove it to the race track, changed the rear tires, and then changed them back and drove it home, it was pretty cool
