As I say, choose your battlefield. I am not going to moralize with you about speed etc. I am commenting on your environment. This is not what I would call a great racetrack: Hard, solid trees close to road, blind driveway or street on the right. Blind crest of a hill. In contrast: This country has many places to drive. Some places are just better than others for fractional-Mach speeds. There are some places where the only person you would be involving is YOURSELF. PS: you can have more fun in less time and distance in a Hellcat than in most other cars. Vroom yeeha! Then slow down. Cars you have to wait a long time to pick up speed are more dangerous, in that one limited aspect. I did a speed show one night for a locomotive engineer along one lonely road at night. I trolled beside him, then hammered it, then slowed down. I did this a few times. It was fun. No animals were harmed in the making of this moment. I knew one guy who had The Red Corvette who used to get out on the checkerboard of Southwest roads and race the same train to multiple crossings, crossing well in front of him multiple times. As I said, choose your battlefield. There is so much fun to have that has almost no witnesses, spectators, or potential collateral damage. And make that woman wear her belts/harnesses, too.
