What was your max speed recorded?

By no means I am saying driving fast is a good practice, buy hey, maybe it was a case of emergency? Speed does give us the adrenaline rush sometime, agree?
As I pushed my Perdana V6 to 185km/h for a closest JAMBAN in NSHW once, donít dare go any higher.
What was your max speed have you ever tried? I am not a fast driver but I do respect those who dare, in control, that is. Any technique required? Such as calm feeling; sharp vision; well maintained wheels etc. etc?

I`ve also done pretty high speeds on roads in Malaysia but it is never safe. First is you have to watch out for speed traps, then you have to watch the road conditions because our roads have strange surfaces and third is that there are stupid motorists who change lanes for no reason. My fastest speed is still recorded on my GPS, though.
I am not in favour of speed limits but can understand that some regulation is needed because there are people who just don`t discipline themselves to know that there are places where you just should not speed. In Nevada, USA, thet have no speed limits and the law states that you can go `as fast as it is safe to do so` or something like that. Which means that if you do 250 on a dry, open road, the police will probably see if they can keep up with you but if you do 170 on a road with lots of cars, they`ll stop you for reckless driving. Makes sense.
