Speedo read 176MPH in my Lotus Esprit V8, but it felt like 172MPH!! North out of Bloomington Illinois on I-39 toward Wisconsin.

You can tell a difference of 4mph at those speeds? Stig?

...but 94 doesn't go thru or even really near bloomington.... seriously, you have to drive like 130 miles to get to 94... of course it would take him like 45 minutes to do that at 176...

Not to mention that 94 should go East-West, not North-South.

I don't think I've made it past 110, some of these other posts make me feel like I haven't truly lived!

Don't feel bad, most of these are probably BS. I don't see how making strangers think you're cool makes you feel better about yourself...but it must somehow.
