HAHA yes, cool cop indeed. I actually blew right by him while he was driving, I didn't even see him. He didn't have me on radar but Im sure he could have wrote me a ticket for being "paced" which i've gotten before.

So the police officer admired your car and then gave you complements after the ticket!!
Shame on him!!
He should've understood then how hard it was to drive slowly in 7000cc car!!
I know that car,
My partner has it and takes it to the track pretty much every other weekend!!
Yet comes onky in manual!! Or should I say it did!!

I like that answer. That would probably put you somewhere between 70 & 80 mph from zero and from freeway speeds 5 seconds of full throttle would put you well over 100 so you're not far off.

If I'm going as fast as I usually go, I don't bother pulling over... there is absolutely no way for anyone to catch me. I just pull off and ditch when he can't see me anymore.

Cop cars can't do anything when you pass them at 140 - 180mph; unless some how there's already a bird in the air and they spot you as he calls it in. I usually immediately open my sunroof and start looking for choppers in the area as I'm evading - they run lights off sometimes and follow to direct ground units to location, so look for their flashing alert lights in the sky - not the spotlights.

If I am going past 100Mph and I see a cop, I just gun it further and ditch the area ASAP - none of the regular patrol cars / highway patrol cars can do anything about us now a days; heheh.
Stupidest mistake I did once was pull over when a CHP lit me up as me and a bike I was playing with passed him at 175Mph, bike kept going, I pulled over and waited.
CHP asked me how fast I was going because he was going 110Mph and we were pulling on him "ridiculously" fast, told him I didnt know, he said I better just pay the ticket because otherwise he would tell the judge if I tried to fight it. So I paid the ticket. Just another reminder to not be nice and pull over when you are going that fast. I always think the cop will be cooler because I pull over and wait for him, but that rarely happens -- sooooooooooooo........ BYE.

Man
You make me feel we are living in the movies!!
R u serious?
If a cop manages to catch you after you tried to ditch, it won't be nice especially when you are 20-30 mph more than him and he's already 120-130!! Goodness you have some nerve!!

You clearly don't understand where he is coming from. It's a completely different world over on the West Coast. You can literally get away with murder on the highways there. It IS a matter of fact. Statistically speaking, California is a WAY bigger state and there are WAY more people living per square mile and there simply are nowhere near enough CHP to try and catch everyone. He was absolutely right, unless they already have a chopper overhead, they are most likely not going to chase you. Also to give you some more perspective, there are rally events held in SoCal from time to time where the Highway Patrol will actually escort exotic cars who pay a lot of money(usually in the name of some charity) and let the drivers drive their personal cars however fast they want on the public highway. We once were doing 140+mph on the 5 with a CHP motorcycle cop right in front of us, escorting. It's just a different lifestyle out there and in my opinion it's paradise. Nothing like what happens in SoCal can ever happen on the East Coast. The East Coast takes law enforcement differently and they pay their troopers better and give them much better equipment for catching speeders. Most East Coast states have tougher laws too, Connecticut anything over 85mph is wreckless driving, Virginia over any speed limit by 20mph and that's a wreckless charge, and so on. California, 100mph is wreckless and most of the time with a good lawyer you can get off with no points. I've seen it happen so many times. By the way, I'm just talking about SoCal here, NorCal is different as well, but not nearly as bad as the East Coast either.

So I wouldn't be so quick to judge others on their habits of driving. I always say that as long as you are not endangering other people on the road, it's all good. If you are the only soul on a deserted road at 2am and you want to do 200mph and run the risk of killing just yourself, then it's all good in my opinion.

Don't remember my highest speeding ticket, but probably 80 in a 65 zone. I did pass a CHP car at 165+ once about 20 years ago. It was 2 AM on a deserted 5 lane highway and he did not even bother to turn on his lights.

What did I miss?
I lived in LA area for about 6 months and never paid attention to how loose things can be when it comes to speeding,
Too late to go back
I am hitting 40 soon -

Yeah I don't know. Maybe things have changed. I almost feel like I'm in car enthusiast prison living here on the East Coast now. But I'm determined to make the best of it. I just can't wait for Winter to be over. I want to organize some events and runs up and down the East Coast this year. I'll keep you posted.

My favorite part is reading about how you stare out your sun roof looking for helicopters while going 140+.

That definitely fits in with the insanity of California drivers.

I feel the same way. It's def car enthusiast prison out here compared to the West Coast.

BTW - did I pass you on Clara Barton parkway this past Sat morning? I was headed into Georgetown, you were coming the other way?

HAHA! Yes! So that was you! I thought it might have been Un Gato Matadoro. Yep, I was taking a quick cruise. Did you hear the straightpipes? I revved as you passed by. .

Yeah I snapped to Neutral. It was fast too. I saw you at the last second and saw you give me the "peace" sign, then snapped to Neutral to give you the M5 salute!
