    There seems to be a loud scream coming from the passenger side when accelerating abruptly or driving approximately 155 mph.

    Has anyone figured out how to shut them up?

    Other that that the drive is exceptionally quiet.

    I heard of Homer’s patented “speed holes” but speed tape sounds very interesting.

    Sunshades can solve almost any problem. Then again, driving 155 mph is sort of like running away from those same problems. Feeling very philosophical all of a sudden.

    This is a funny thread, but if you do happen to hit 155 mph, do not post video of it.

    Only video possible would be from the control tower just before take off. Closed airport strip makes everything legal.

    Just imagine the thing under it was your car.

    Or.. you can put them inside Elon’s car and send them to mars.

    Well it happens to me too everyday during my rush hour office commute . At 155 mph I hear some extra noise. Very annoying.

    Did you mean 155km/hr??

    Where did you manage to do 155mph? I just barely (possibly in my dreams) crossed 200km/hr on the 407 for about a minute to test it out lol.

    I get same noise passing 100 mph. I am looking for the decal that says, get in, buckle up, shut up. Enjoy.

    1. Identify source of sound
    2. Stuff good-sized washcloth, etc., in orifice
    3. For additional muffling, pre-soaking in chloroform deadens noise absolutely. And permanently, too.

    Raising the volume to eleven seems to help a little! But I think it just covers up the problem, like a band aid.

    Band aid... that’s it. Put a brass band in the back seat. Tell them that when you hit 155, start playing. Make sure the trombone sits in the middle, so the slide has enough room.
