Some basic first aid may have kept the guy from bleeding out. I assume your coworker didn't apply a torniquet. Youngsters should spend more time in Scouts than in sports, arcades, or in front of the TV. You can learn a lot and may save a life one day.

I had it up to about 117 mph according to my GPS...
Was that in the rock garden at ECXC that we saw the video of?

Yeah Steve - Only 117 mph in the rock garden, much slower than normal, I think the head wind was a problem...

Ok, ok, ok, stupid question, I know. I should have thought twice before asking that question. I will admit though, I enjoy the thrill of speed, which is why I love snowmobiling. However, the rude comments that were made were uncalled for and could have been said differently. For those who did answer the question as best as they could, thanks for your help......RJ
P.S. The 01X SE Yellow is no longer, I traded it in Friday for an 05X S Black.

I drove my Xterra at nearly 100mph (speedo' indicated)on an Autobahn in Germany last summer and it was a frightening experience! I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, the handling gets a little nervous at that speed!!!

I was trying to catch a buddy who was in a BMW Alpina X5 4.4 which was a stupid thing to do as he was cruising at 140mph!

It's not speed that kills, it's the sudden stop at the end that does!

Paul.

We need it to remind us that some of us want to drive really fast, and some of us are very much against other people driving really fast.

I'm not sure why we need that reminder, but, that seems to be its only purpose.

hhmmm....smmary:

1. The limiter is there primarily to protect the makers from lawsuits arising from exceeding tire speed capabilities.

2. If you drive an SUV really fast it is easier to have a tragic outcome.

3. You can fool the limiter by using larger diameter tires.

4. You can buy something that can go faster than an X.

5. If you hit a lot of Snail Darters and Spotted Owls at the same time, your truck looks like it was tarred and feathered.

6. The Dali Lama is more spry than he looks.

7. You CAN have shrouds sewn back up if they get ripped.

OK - I think that about covers it.
