In some states 20 over and you'll be charged w/ reckless driving. This can get you a trip to jail.

Yup here you would have been arrested on spot and car impounded.

^^Understatement, don't live there but on the border, 3 or 4 over and they will bust your ass.
Fyi, you would have went to jail here (WV) too. I got busted a few yrs. back doing 72 in a 45 nearly went to jail, charged with reckless driving, and a car impound.......not to mention my ticket alone was $188 You would have thought I shot the sherriff boxed me in beating on the window with night sticks and shit and by "few year's" ago I mean '94 or '95. I would have thought it would be more by now. Your actually lucky bro. My wanna ease back just a shade or at least before you hit 3 digit's

That's rough man, I got nailed for a 90 in a 65 on the PA turnpike last September... Got it knocked down to a 75 in a 65 with one point and it cost me like 100 bills.

As for the people saying slow down, if you had a MS3 there sure as shit would be a point where you'd probably hit this speed. I've done it, maybe for only a mile or two with no other cars around, but it's bound to happen especially to see what it feels like to go 100+.

I would agree with that, you gotta do it at some point. But taking it easy for a while now would be a good idea, one thing you don't want is two of those back to back. Besides my advice was to ease back a touch at least before triple digit's...haha

telling people on a car forum to slow down is like going to the PETA forums and telling them to throw puppies off the cliff. probably not going to get the desired response.

speeding is one thing, getting caught is another. I'd say be more careful where you speed.

when my friend went on a "top speed" run in his dad's Z06, he made sure to go on a big open toll road, scouted both directions for 2 miles, before trying it..

I have to disagree about speeding being a no-no in Ohio.

The times I've been pulled over in Northeastern OH:

81 in 55 = $117 (age 17)
Spun tires in parking lot = lecture from the cop (age 17)
64 in 50 = no ticket, no warning. (age 18)
75 in 45 = Slow it down, I didn't get you on radar but I could tell you were speeding... (age 18)
54 in 35 = no ticket, official warning (age 19)
42 in (commercial) 25 = $130 (age 21)
64 in 40 = no ticket, no warning (age 23)

Based on my experiences, Ohio is fairly lenient in regards to speeding.
