Top speed? The top speed we're used to is around 256 Mph, the speed limit is around 80 in most countries. There is simply no need to create a civilian vehicle that can exceed the speed limit.
Beef Flaps I look out for my family and myself FIRST, BEFORE anyone or anything else, that doesn't mean I will not, or do not help others. Don't assume anything. You need to be a litle selfish in this world if you plan on making it and having nice things.[/QUOTE] :agreed:
[QUOTE=Mr. Matt]Our of curiosity, what alternative fuel would you be happy with?
Hyrdogen. We would run cars on hydrogen fuel cells.
Plus the cars would make a very nice 'splosion if the fuel cell was ruptured :D

You scare me Nite, then again, that'd be a cool show. EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!!!

If I recall properly there is insufficient raw material for the construction of efficient hydrogen fuel cells at the current technology level.

That is all your opinion, not mine and many others. People use their cars for legal Auto X and 1/4 mile racing. I am not talking about the need to do 200 MPH down a highway, that is where brains comes in. You need power when you have to pass the idiot doing 40 in the left lane. You need torque for towing race cars, boats ect.
And you need transport for the current order of things to survive. Deal with the essentials, secure as much as what you have as possible; then we can set our sights on luxury items.

Well being I am only alive for so long, I choose to enjoy my hobbies while I am still physically able to.
And if I do the same; and those who follow after me; those after them? To sell all the world to ruin for the now.

So what should I do? Just give up my hobbies because oil might be gone in 100 years? I think I will leave it to the scientists to come up with the solution, when they do and if I am alive I will gladly adapt. Until that time I must enjoy my life.
No show a bit of maturity and be prepared for some short term cutbacks for longterm gains. It's only a bloody a car it's hardly the end of the world if you cant go 0-60 in half a second; the irony is that people like you would make it the end of the world, or at least the end of the current order of things over that 0-60. Grow up already, you've apparently had 69 years to do so.
