Is it just me?

or does pretty much everyone feel a bit more comfortable driving their Mustang faster rather than slower? See for me my comfort is zone is about 83.

I'm not suggesting an illegal activity such as speeding. Because I would never speed

Both for me. Mostly faster though. Catch myself going faster than I thought all of the time.

Pretty much sums it up for me as well.

Most of the time I don't go over 70, usually around 60-65.. It's different on the bike, usually 85-90 on the way to work which is 100% highway and interstate.

I have a lead foot so I like goin fast but lately I haven't been speeding whatsoever on a count that I just got 2 speeding tickets in 3 days on the same road. I've only had 1 other speeding ticket in the last 5 years.

Limit in my neighborhood is generally 50km/h. If I can't travel at least 70 I feel like I'm standing still.
