If you have a newer car I bet you haven't done it when the engine was running at full throttle at a high speed load. Read more

The shifter on almost all current automatics (including these) are just an electronic switch. The transmission controller is programmed to refuse commands that can cause damage, like shifting into reverse or neutral when the engine is running WFO. Read more

Then you'll get cars that lap at 230mph or better, at least for a few laps until the tires let go. There's also the issue of the catch fences being able to keep a flying car out of the stands if you add more speed.
