Default re: 60 MPH...achieveable? Who cares?!? Let blueprint an engine!

Wind resistance becomes a "HUGE" factor at about 120mph.

At about 80 mph "air" begins to take on the characteristics of a fluid...This is why airplanes fly.

At about 100 mph...ground based vehicles are severely affected by wind resistance...the effect is nearly exponential from about 120 mph.

I can see the 185-190 mph!
