I myself have always seemed to have the need for speed. It was not until I got married and got my evo that I have been really able to get a good fix for that need.
The "fastest" thing I have had before that I cannot even put in a class as being fast. For what it was I guess it was okay, but now that I have had the evo I have trouble placing as many cars as I used to in the fast category.
I would love to see some pics of these rides especially the Jeep and the TSX. The bike would look cool but being that I am not much of a bike person it would look about like any other bike to me, but others might enjoy seeing it more than myself. I do not see how people can go fast on a bike with nothing around them to at least take some damage before their bodies do if something goes wrong
I have had the evo well into the triple digits; it is so exhilarating feeling the power that pushes you into the seats. It is as if someone is grabbing your shoulders and yanking you back.

I currently have a 1994 Acura Integra that is the B18 1.8L non V-tec engine. The most modification i have done is remove the power steering and A/C belts as it frees up horses on the crank. I had a modest 8-10 HP boost from doing so, not much, and probably not worth getting rid of the power steering, but i have gotten used to it . Aside from that, my other mod i did was put in a cold air intake and put a K&N filter on it. Oh my god was the difference astounding! All my other friends who have Honda Civics, Del Sols or even some CRX's CANNOT keep up with me whatsoever since i put the cold air on there coupled with the K&N. Some of my friends even have V-tec in their cars and i still dust them once i start to top out 3rd gear (100~ MPH) and i still have all of 4th to just pull away from them. I would suggest a good Cold Air and catback muffler on your WRX. Maybe get a bigger turbo for it too.
The bill, which must still pass the Texas Senate, would allow the state’s Department of Transportation to raise the speed limit on highways that pass engineering and safety studies. Texas currently has a limit of 80 mph on some highways, as does Utah, while a handful of U.S. states have limits of 70 to 75 mph.
“They have high-speed roadways in Europe,” said Rep. Lois Kolkhorst of Brenham. “There could be some merit in having some of those highways in Texas.”
The autobahn in Germany is probably the most widely known European highway where driving enthusiasts enjoy the limitless “as-the-conditions-permit” speed limits. But while Texas is looking to raise speeds, the opposite is taking place the German state of Baden-Württemberg where the country’s Green party is making a new push to impose a 75 mph limit on some autobahn stretches make-the-trek.com...
Think of MotorSport Ranch as a place that its members go to satisfy that "need for speed". Many people own a sports or high performance car, or even a vintage race car. The Ranch is a place to explore the potential of these cars and for the drivers to develop and practice their skills. The Ranch offers convenience and accessability for its members who do are able to treat performance driving as a sport or a hobby
