    I used to be that way too, but when I got my Challenger I started to drive faster, because its fairly smooth and I dont realize I'm speeding. The radar has saved my butt many times, well worth the money.

    I drove a 2011 SRT8 for the last 13 months with no issue ;)

    I was driving a 2003 Xterra before the Challenger. And a Mazda 3 and Honda Civic before that. I used to gage my speed by RPMs and gear, but with this AT I have now I go from 30mph to 80mph without feeling it at all.

    660hp just seems insane, and a MT too. You can probably get to 120mph in 3rd gear.

    Without looking, I think it's mid 130's in 3rd. Maybe 135 or 138.

    Must be nice. I have to hit 4th in the 1/4 mile. Would love to have the same final drive ratio as 3.73 is too high for my tastes.

    Launching this beast, even with launch control, is not trivial....
