        Indeed. 170-180 MPH is a bit too much for a GT. It's fast but not that fast.
        I wonder how many laws he has broken to achieve this  ;) .

            Agree .........but keeping high aveverages  means some big numbers at some time...........does the US still have low speed limits ie 55mph ?
