Max speed in DV is 35 but many places have a posted higher speedlimit. Via Death Valley is not fastest way to Lake Tahoe though. Can''t you make it a 3-4 days drive and add some of Yosemite also?

The OP asked for most scenic route and that's not via LA imo. But you can take that way allright and maybe try to make it to Ridgecrest for the night. Shortest route not always is fastest with LA traffic.
