I just don't see any need to be driving a 5,000 lb truck at over 100mph on the street, no matter what the situation. Are you really going to drive 130mph home from the church because your house alarm went off??? I hope not....puts a lot of people on the road at risk.

Anyway....all that said I have my speed limiter set at 120mph, just because it's an option to change it. I figure one day my truck might be fast enough at the track to actually need that LOL.

Actually I like to race 18 year olds in mustangs and camaros because they think they are fast. Thats in my g55 though. The ram is just to push over prius's.

I'm not sure what a g55 is...is that the infiniti version of the nissan z car? If so, don't they have like 200 or 300 some hp? I know they are around a 3.5L v6...and I know my friend's 01 LS1 camaro had 360hp from the factory. No way the z is faster (also had another friend that had a 350z and can say for sure it is not faster than the camaro, not even close actually. The camaro's run about 13.8 stock, the z cars probably close to a 15). Also, the camaro cost under $20,000, the z car probably more like $30,000, add the infiniti trim on it and it's probably another $5-10k? Just guesses but I bet I'm on the right track. I think the z is only a two seater too...right?

Mustangs and camaros are fast(relatively), especially for the money. Hell even the new v6 one's make 300hp.
