Anyone who drives any vehicle with street tires over 100 mph on a public road is an idiot and deserves to be forcibly removed from the gene pool. If you really feel the need to explore the limits, please do it at a BMWCCA HPDE where the risks are mitigated, safety crews are in place, and no innocent bystanders are placed in jeopardy.

Panties in a bunch much???

In all seriousness, I do understand what you are saying....BUT....if I'm not jeopardizing anyone else's health and safety, who are you to tell me how I decide to go?

If I crash at 150 mph on the track or on the road the result is going to be pretty much the same.

I have multiple roads that I can literally see for miles here in AB that are perfectly smooth and under-utilized. You are absolutely correct that if I crash north of 240 km/h, things aren't going to turn out well. Still not something you get to decide.
