I've done it too but only by 9 miles over. Wow, 100mph just to dry the car off, you'd probably getting lots of bug splatters at that speed.

this guy is dumb. I speed up to dry my car all the time, and know for a fact that a simple 60 in a 50 for 1-2 miles will do the trick just fine.

It's the acceleration that gets the water off - not high speed.
