Desert Truck

Not sure if anyone saw this off customtacos but I think it is amazing to go 107 MPH on that terrain

Its hard to tell in the video, but it sure doesn't look like its going 107mph. But even so, a well built/tuned suspension should handle that kind of speed

Yes, its true. While not common knowledge, due to the budget crisis, Caltrans is heavily backlogged on replacing speed limit signs in the Los Angeles area. Effective Jan 1, 2005, all speed limits previously posted as 65mph will become 85mph to match current traffic speeds. Those vehicles not meeting the minimum recommended speed of 70mph are asked to simply park on the shoulder out of lanes to prevent possible traffic tie-ups.

thats fine for LA but what about that stretch of I-5 from LA to SD? even back when the limit was 55 the average speed was 85...in the right lane

The speed limit increase extends south past orange county to the San Diego county border. Since San Diego was annexxed by NorCal many years ago, the speed limit reverts to 55 once you cross into SD county.

Sure looks like 107 to me....... This is me doing a little over 90 mph, not a bumpy though.

thats faster than 107... LOL... im guessing 115-120 somehwere in there.. the section he was in wasnt that rough, i dont see why they were testing the vehicle in the same strip.. with a car like that they can run the course in under 50 minutes...

- for 10,000 years, man has been hitting things with hammers to make them work....dont mess with a working formula
