    How the hell do you drive that fast that far without getting stopped? Ponderous man.

    Spotters, Waze alerts and high tech gadgets in the car.

    Still crazy how you could get that average. I'm sure there's a luck factor involved.

    Aren't these guys basically assholes putting people at risk? No matter how careful, that speed brings risk.

    I don't care if they wanna drive into a wall, just don't put others at risk.

    Driving over 100 mph is like walking around with a leg growing out of your forehead. People notice.

    Driving for 24 hours plus sounds miserable.

    What makes me call bullshit is that the guy on the right has a Cannonball Run T-shirt. If they got pulled over and the cop saw that, he would know what they are doing and they would be going to jail (and not just for speeding).

    I would be more worried about other drivers then someone doing 100 across country. I do hear what you're saying tho.

    Hooper is awesome. I owned a 72 International Scout II like in the movie, only theirs was a “Hurst” edition, the holy grail of Scouts.

    Averaging 103 mph, jesus, that means their valleys would have been like full stop for gas, and like 60-80 when encountering traffic or spotting a cop, and their peaks to maintain 103 were probably in the high 100's.
