    What an *$$!
    once i hit 80kph or even 60kph on moderate traffic, i make sure i have 2 hands on the wheel. Baka bata yan bro pekto..

    Scary isn't it? Actually, I was stupid and reckless too when I was younger. But, I wizened up eventually.

    I hope he had V-rated tires which can go up to 149 mph (240 kph). Mine always do. It's also dangerous to have a car that could go that fast and not have the proper tires. A lot of these kids buy the cheapest tires which have the lowest speed ratings.

    As far as objects on the road...... I don't think the car would go out of control if I run over some debris. My main concern is the debris puncturing the underside of the car such as the gas tank.

    minsan kasi bro instead of going over the debris, may chance din na "makaladkad" and mag skid. at that speed, even the slightest debris can cause major damage din.

    From my experience unintentionally running over debris and animals at high speeds, you're either going to run over them or push them out of the way. In the case of animals, there were some jackrabbits that were crushed under the tires. The deer I hit in New York was thrown clear by the impact, but not before crushing the front of the car. I had total control the whole time. There was a big KA-BLAG! My wife didn't even realize we hit a deer at first. Then we saw pieces of the bumper sticking up above the hood.

    There's really nothing for debris to latch on to on the car.

    The most dangerous debris on the road are the shredded tires, even the small strips. If you run over them, they're flexible enough to act like a whip. They can easily puncture metal. I couldn't avoid running over a small strip one time. It punctured the gas tank of our minivan which caused fuel to start dripping. Good thing I had an extended warranty which covered its replacement.

    akala ko mas safe yung rubber ng shredded tires, kasi ginagawang humps dito sa atin ^_^

    Hit 170-175 kph briefly on SCTEX on a weekday with a gen 2 1.3L vios. Not really a speedfreak but that long stretch of bare highway convinced me to tempt fate

    Speed? I was doing 60 mph (97 kph) which is the posted speed limit. We hit the deer around 1 am at night. I was doing 60 mph as well when I ran over the shredded tire strips.

    I think anything under 100kph manageable pa pag ganyan. Di ako maka get over dun sa rubber strip hehehe
