    Well my local dealership was doing routine maintenance and check up on my hellcat when I dropped it off I mentioned to them I felt a small little vibration in the steering wheel at approximately 77 mph. So like any good Service technician would do he rotates and balances the tires and then takes it for a spin up to 70+ miles per hour to see if that fixed the vibration problem. The was problem fix. But not without a Half hour stop by the local law enforcement agency for running 78 in a 55 . The cops had to verify with the dealership that he was testing for a high-speed vibration, I was told that the first cop stop him and within A few minutes two more showed up basically to look at the car so now I guess I will have to watch my six little more !

    Interesting... I mean he violated the law. And in a 55, seems like a bad place to test it unless your highways are low speed. But glad they let the guy go since he was just trying to figure it out for you!

    You would have to drive for half hour to get to an interstate that would let you drive 70 on.the highway's around here are all posted 55.

    Why not test all the wheels when there on the tire machine?

    As teenager I use to get to do those high speed test drives at the garage I worked at. I look back now and realize how expendable I was there... The boss use to say "Drive it like you stole it!" That's because I was the guy who was going to take the hit if caught...

    Never heard of that scenario. Speeding is a ticket which is money.
