I just can't help that I grew up with it, and I know how long 2 feet is but I don't know how long 6 decimeters/60 centimeters is (they're about the same).
I don't have a good grasp of long distance conversions, but I figured a while back that the road to American metricism would run through the decimeter. It's almost exactly 4 inches, so instead of feet, you can just go with 3 decimeters. It also has the bonus of looking and sounding almost like "decimater", and you know we would eat up anything like that! "A foot? Whatev's! It's like 3 decimaters!! And Brawndo's got electrolytes and ****!!"

Just a felony? I don't know what they would do to someone for going 200mph! That would sail right past reckless driving/endangerment and be damn near attempted manslaughter over here!!

Passing a radar speed check with 300 km/h on a regular motorway... illegally, of course:

300 km/h on an autobahn:

Idiot driver on a not so empty autobahn:

But the 1000 HP engine has a real badass sound.

If you pass somebody with more than 130 km/h here and have an accident, you will always get a share of the fault. Passing anybody at 300 km/h is gross carelessness at the least and if you have an accident then (which usually means death), you will probably go into jail (if you are lucky... you might as well go into a coffin). That guy from the last video would usually lose his licence just for closing too much on the cars before him, if caught.

That looks scary. Also, I am sure my jeep won't go that fast. I'm not even sure the speedometer goes past 120. My old one the lines stopped at 85. I'm not 100% sure on this number but I think the inline 6 engine on my jeep only puts out like 190 hp.

The only way I could go 200 mph is if you dropped it from an airplane/helicopter at great great height.

Interestingly, I wondered if dropping it would even get it going that fast, and I'm not even sure. Apparently terminal velocity on a skydiver is ~200mph (320kph).

so it's a matter of is my jeep more aero dynamic than a a skydiver. maybe close if it was pointing the right way, but probably not. I DO have the sexy smooth lines version, not the boxy ones.

I think you only hit about 180MPH Max even in a HALO that's what they told us.
I think Average fall rate is 115MBH and you hit that fast one you exit, (it's not like you can feel the anything but wind) but we jumped at almost 14.000 feet and pulled chutes as we passed at 5000 foot mark the one jump I made.
As soon as I pulled my chute, the one instructor went vertical dropped to like 700ft and was on the ground way ahead of me. I had some trouble with the rip cord falling out of the pocket and the instructor put it back in so I could pull my chute but nothing like this.

BTW, the fastest car with a road permission is the Bugatti Veyron with 1200 HP and a top speed of 430 km/h, that's almost 270mph. Theoretically it's in concordance with traffic law here to drive that fast, but you might get a problem with criminal law if you try. In practice, you can drive that fast only on a completely perfect, plain and empty road with a clear line of sight of maybe 2 kilometers.
