Haha oh wow. I've never evaded, let alone be pulled over. Only time I ever spoke to an officer was when I rolled my truck. Never cited me for speeding, only failure to control :)

I have evaded. It was the stupidest thing I could have ever done. $10,000 and about 5 years later and it's finally over.

I was 19 with no prior convictions and they nailed me with a felony. I couldn't get a good job to pay for the fees so I got two crappy jobs and worked then back to back for about 3 years. On my days off I did community service for 180 days. That took a year and a half to finish. It's been reduced to a misdemeanor now and maybe even dismissed but it still shows on a background check. I don't even know if I can purchase a gun which is something I want to get into. I have to seek legal advice and I will soon.

but racing :D i shift at 30 mph first 50 mph 2nd to 70 3rd to 85 and fourth the rest and i do that once or twice every 3 days and im yet to blow my engine so im guessing its in the right range..
In a 3.0 with 4.10's 2nd gear almost matches speed times 100.

65mph in 5th is right around 3k RPM

Other than that, I dont know what RPM's are what. Even when I'm practicing shifting without the clutch, I do it by feel, not by what the gauge says.
