we had a thread on this just a while back...but if you go to powerlabs (try google) there is a engineering student who spun some cd's using a dremel.....
ever notice that you can buy 52x players, but not 52x cd's? i guess they found that cd's spinning faster than 48x had a tendancy to explode inside the drive pecause of inperfections in the plastic that causes the disc to wobble @ high speeds...even some stories of the foil (where the data is actually contained) flying off.

so with that in mind..i don't think your friend got his info from a reliable source.
