Well, it all depends upon your definition of "high speed"...maybe his 
car is always in stage 2, so he thinks that's "low" :-)

I always used to say people were full of it when they claimed a stage 
3...until a couple months ago while out with Dan, waiting for him in 
the parking lot, in 95+ degree weather with the a/c cranked up, stage 
3 came on.  Thought the damn car was going to take off...decided it 
would be best to gently cruise around the block for a few minutes to 
let the car cool off a little(and charge the battery, which was under 
12v by that point, and going down.)

   Time for an Avi alternator and a decent battery, I suppose(car is 
chronically under voltage.)  As everyone at Mt Washington now knows, 
my battery leaves a tad to be desired(nothing like trying to jump a 
car with Messer Royal politely urging us to hurry up so everyone can 
go up the mountain :-)
