Been driving for about 6-7 years, and my own supercharged car to use for 4 which I've racked up 50k miles on.
I average 80-90mph on rt87, occasionally hit 100.
I hit 130mph my first time on my way to DC, to watch the stewart/colbert rally. Had to try and beat my friends who were flying there since Oprah gave them all free tix under their seats during one of stewart's daily shows (beat them by an hour)
It's pretty rare that I need to let someone pass me, even though I'm burning through the left lane. As sexist as it is, most of these drivers crazier than I are young females. Can't remember the last time a bro tailed me at 100+.
I'm probably just super, super lucky. NY is a great state to speed in, but it comes at a hefty price:
-You have to be able to identify the make of every single car on both sides of the highway instantly. I know what vehicles the undercover enforcers drive, and after some practice you can spot them pretty easily. Pro-tip, they're all modified versions of that particular vehicle's make (to fit lights, a new mirror or 2, etc) and they're never dirty.
-You have to slow down in densely wooded areas of the highway, and there's no way around that unless you like to gamble. Even if you know where police like to hide, you simply can't spot them in time, which brings me to my next point,
-You need good vision. If you can't spot a police car way in the distance before he sees you, you're done. While I don't speed at night, it's quite a benefit to be able to identify the reflection of the stripe on the side of an enforcer vehicle from a distance. But again, at night you're still prone to undercover cops - it's too fuckin dark to see them!
-You have to pay attention, all the god damned time. Your mind should never stray from looking for cops. If your drive consists of playing some mellow music and zoning out, chances are you'll have a bad time trying to speed. I always have fast music playing, I can concentrate better when I'm super focused, and I enjoy the challenge. This tip can be a pro or a con depending on how much you like/dislike driving
also a disclaimer, never speed with other people in your car, asshole
