Top Speed in 4x4 High?

Hey All, I was wondering if there is a recommended top speed to drive in while you're in 4x4 high? Is freeway speeds too fast? (65 to 70?)

If you're going down the track you really can't help it.

I wouldn't drive that fast in 4wd on the freeway though. If you need 4wd you shouldn't be going that fast anyyway.

Avoid turning corners in 4WD on black top!

The speed should be fine if everything's in good condition, But I would only use it at the track.
