you bet i do. the only problem is that my vehichle is a minivan. Although I have been able to get it up to 110 before, and if i took out the govorner I could probably get it up to 115 or 125. pretty good for a van eh?

i go 40-45mph everywhere, or 5mph faster then posted.

There's this little crappy back road near my house, limit is $35, its not wide enough to meet state requirments and is very um...wavy. Lots of good turns on it. Runs for like 5 miles total. I like to gun it to 60mps (then i chicken b/c this road is right near a steep hill, and i'd like to keep my car in 1 piece) and see how fast i can take the curves and corners. I drop to 40 if i see any other cars, don't want to risk clipping them (bastards always in my lane, afraid they will go off the road its so narrow)

i freak people out when i drive.....even in the city, i accelerate until i absolutely have to slow down for a stop sign only a block away. i tend to drive well over the limit (unless my ol lady is with me, then i cut it down to 10 or 15 over...till she keeps nagging and i have to slow down more...).

i really like taking corners at higher speeds, making the tires bark a little, right on the edge of losing control. i guess i just watch too much nascar......

i agree. Corners are meant to be taken at speeds of 30-35mph or greater (if possible)

my parents think that i am a bad driver for some reason from how i play grand turismo 4. Which is a highly technical driving game, so i dont' see how they can think that.

speeding is cool as long as your a good driver nowsome stupid people don't know how to drive.where i live I-10 is under constructiong so a cop can't pull you over between the k-rails. i did a 110 through them one night rasing a nissian 350z i got my butt handed to me. but i lost my car and my truck only says 80 on the speedo :(. plus gas is to much to speed very much

i know some cops and they told me the trick to speeding- the radar guns have an alarm that goes off to let them know someone was speeding. this alarm is almost always set at 10 mph over. so do what i do- always drive 9 mph over :D

ive taken exit ramps at 50+ in my venge and had no problems with traction

Whats scary is when I'm in the Porshe with my uncle and hes driving...

it's like hes invincible.

me - "ummm, Eric, theres a turn coming up."
uncle - "I know."
me - "Isn't 80mph a bit fast for a turn?"
uncle - "probably"
me - "well are you gonna slow down?"
uncle - "no."
