    RE: Hyundai vs. Mercedes C230

    Well if the speed limit sign says 55, I usually do 60, but no more than that.

    RE: Hyundai vs. Mercedes C230

    No doubt. All the toll roads around here are 55 MPH, but 70 is "average" in rush hour. 70 is middle lane speed in most cases. Cars ride up on you if you're in the left doing 70. It's a bit ridiculous if you think about it (it's like you're pissing people off around here by ONLY doing 15 over).

    Well he rides the 55mph roads up Seneca Lake in Watkins Glen. I usually do 65 on the highway, to keep my fuel consumption low. but man people fly by all the time.

    Seriously. You have to drive like a real idiot to get pulled over on the highway for speeding around here. There are cops, they just do 70 too.

    On the NJ turnpike people do 80mph in the middle lane and they'll be near 100 or more in the left lane.

    It seems like they do it on purpose just to piss people off. especially when they are in the passing lane. you want to pass them on the right, but have no idea if they are gonna get over as you start to pass them. thats when ya gun it lol

    How in the hell has this subject matter have anything to do with an RC hobby ?

    Why not just take it to a Road & Track site ?

    True, but the cops in Ohio are *******s. I slow down once I cross the border when I visit, to about 7 over.

    I would still take the GT-R over any one of those cars. The Lambo won because it had traction off the line, and it was lightweight. The Subaru is still pretty sweet as it just can rip out a doughnut that easily. Nothing beats the sound of an American Muscle V8 though. Awesome drag.

    Why in the world was the Subaru in there? As sort of a baseline "regular car" test?

    My apologies if they say why, sound is busted for my PC at work, so I can't listen, only watch.

    I got in the habit of doing only 5 over where the staties roam, but a lot of the local municipalities EXPECT you to spped a little, like they figure if you are following the law too closely, you might be hiding drugs or weapons, which is very common here
