I stayed away from the V8 as well since I can't even come close to using my V6 around here without getting in trouble. After having an 11 second bike I came up with a new term, "Wasted Horsepower". If I can never use it, I don't want it. You simply have to decide if you want to risk legal problems to have fun or want a clean driving record. I switched to clean driving record mode since there are cops everywhere outside of Chicago and how fast do you want to drive in a congested city? Reckless Driving tickets (30 or more over) and Vehicular Homicide is serious business.
