4-piston Calipers are a must... wonder if it was a V or not, I cant imagine racing an Acura (even an NSX) and having them keep up with me past 80mph.

It may be as fast on the top end, but I'd give you a go (on a track only of course).:bouncy:

an unfortunate situation, but.


"Acura Integra and dark-coloured Cadillac began racing along the downtown highway, weaving in and out of traffic at speeds of 130 to 140 km/h, police said."

80-85 mph on a highway "racing" ? That's damn near the unoffical speed limit on the highways around here...

Oh and this wasn't me either.....

80-85 is the normal speed in the left lane here.

I do 140 all the time on the highways here ... This highway is not designed for that kind of speed.

These two cars were weaving in and out like crazy and that caused the problem ... it is a narrow highway without shoulders that travels through the middle of the city. It is a stupid and extremely dangerous section of road to speed on

The highway in question is actually raised off of the ground by about 30 ft and hitting the Volvo actually pushed it obver the guardrail and causing it to flip upside down ... it isn't the greatest road in the world ...

This is the same stretch of highway where a Corvette (that was travelling about 175 km/h) actually flew off of the same section a few years ago (there used to be a small bump that was fixed after this accident). The Vette literally took flight 10 ft off of the ground and over the guardrail (the guardrail was untouched if you can imagine that)

This section of highway has a posted speed limit of 90 km/h because any higher isn't that safe ... even I rarely exceed 110km/h or so because it just isn't worth it
