I love driving fast, but 180 mph on a public road is a little irresponsible to say the least. Open desert road...ok. Highway full of cars...not too smart. He won't kill himself...it will be someone around him that merges or pulls out in front of him.

Thumbs down Insanity Rally

Its not a rally is insanity! I think the guys racing the turbo are egomaniacs with total disregard for others. We are not setup like the Germans with the autobahn nor do we know how to drive at those speeds. I see idiots every day on the left lane going to speed limit no faster and get upset if you flash them. In NY you do that speed you end up sans P-car and in jail. That type of driving is reserved to Montana or a desert with no speed limits.
