AYE-ECP is 41km, to finish in 10 mins, you need to average 240km/h..  [bounce1]

When was younger, drove from KL to Singapore , from Sungei Besi Toll to Malaysia Customs 2nd Link in 1 hour 25 minutes

 

A friend did it in 1 hr 15 mins

 

don't think these times are achievable now with the much heavier traffic on the NS highway

Still possible.. Weekdays after 10pm, NSHW is quite free of traffic.. I did once from Melaka toll to 2nd Link in about 1.5hours. Averaging about 160km/h.. I could go faster cos there was virtually no traffic, but it's late at night and not wise to go too fast.

Still possible on the right day and time (and with the right car of course).

 

I recently did 2hr hours flat including smoke and pee break at Ayer Keroh, from JB immigration exit to Sungai Besi toll. Left at 5am arrived at 7am on a weekday so there was morning traffic after seremban.

2813miles for Cannonball.

convert to km = 4527km

Roughly the distance from Singapore to Bhutan (next to Nepal),

 

I rather make a shorter drive to Guangzhuo/Shenzhen and spend some nights at Chiang Ping to hit the same mileage [grin]
