Take it and leave it on the track for speeds like that.

just to clarify I dont support going that sort of speed on public roads... if you are court they WILL jail you and most likely suspend your license etc

re: the light... either you were hitting the speed limiter or the car was trying to tell you that you were losing traction, which is quite terrifying..

+1 on that.. Check your tire pressure and thread depth. Though that is a terrifying situation with that speed and possible tire slippage!

In this case it was an omen:

DTSC = due to speed, crash.

Be careful out there.

please dont turn this into a "look at me, i went 230kmph on a public road" sort of thread...

volvo s80 or not, if you crash at that speed, you are dead..
