On your commutes?
On weekends/ late nights?

I have to rush job to job in a work truck and I haul ass. GMC 2500 with a 6.0L V8. It's no slouch.

1- old grandma
2
3 - go with the flow of traffic
4
5
6 Fast off line, fast corners, but well within your cars limit, and your capabilities
7
8 HARD ACCELERATION, CORNERS FAST IN, FAST OUT. LATE BRAKING. Borderline wreckless
9
10 -Grand Theft Auto 5 stars status
>>
3 but I live near a bunch of rich assholes who drive pretty fast. Have a friend who drives a solid 7
>>
I drive a Veloster so it's pretty much 10 all the time, all around town.
>tfw revving to 6k legally all day
>>
I'm in no hurry so I don't speed, but I have no tolerance for morons that can't figure out merging/yielding/lane changes, so I drive in the wrong lane, on the sidewalk, over median islands, or whatever else I need to do pretty often.
>>
On work commutes I do 10~ over the limit unless stuck in traffic. I try to get around slow drivers, or drivers I can tell are incompetent cunts (lane drifting, clearly looking at their phones, erratic speeds). So usually a 3-6.

On evening weekend commutes it depends on where I'm going, how far it is, and whether or not I have people with me. Usually a 5-7.

Once every few months I'll have a fucking 10 moment of like spiritual clarity where I will literally #racecar my way from A to B.

If I had a sportier car I'd drive more aggressively when traffic allowed, but I think its extremely rare for me to drive unsafely regardless of how enthusiastic I'm being.
>>
>>14275243
>On your commutes?
4 if im tired, if im a chauffeur 3, if they need to get there fast and don't mind 6. depending what im driving too.
>On weekends/ late nights?
9
>>
3 to 6 depending on mood and conditions
>>
3 - 4 most of the time, because dense population city.
5 - 6, maaaaybe a 7 one time, when driving late at night. Road conditions are less than ideal and that´s as good as it gets.
>>
5-6
I like to preserve fuel and tyres but my car is so fucking fun and I've only had it 3 or 4 months
>>
>>14275289
Me too.
>>
i'm usually in no rush, so it's generally around 3 or 4. I never make an effort to specifically stick to the speed limit and just drive a speed that's not dangerous and enjoable.

however, when i'm driving deliveries, i drive considerably faster.
when i drive for the bakery, it'd be at around 7, since hard accelaration and late braking is deadly to any kind of cake or pie that you have in the back of the transporter.
when i drive i'm usually beyond at 8 or even 9. Mostly dependent on traffic, but when there is none, i don't mind running a red or a few and driving double the speed limit. however, i always watch out for other drivers and pedestrians, so that only those who get pissed at everything get pissed.

muh delivery times
>>
>>14275243
3-4 in town because I have a good reputation to uphold and word spreads quick between 800 people.
6-8 in the city and on the highway because fuck errybody and I got a piece to finish what an uppity fuck starts.
>>
I drive a gutless 95 civic and it doesn't really start moving until I rev it to 4.5k. I think I push it pretty hard sometimes, and take corners sharp too. 7 or 8
>>
1 always
sometimes i go 2 because FUG DA BOLIS but very rarely maybe like once per month at most

6
pretty much my entire driving life.

recently got a new car, has a mpg meter. realized if I dont drive like an asshat I can get 42mpgs.
now I drive the goddamn speed limit or 5 above my 70 mile round trip commute to work.
98% of all traffic passes me except semi
feels so much more relaxing. I dont have to yell, and pop a vein at cunts huggin the left lane.

Normally: 5
With passengers: 3
With eurobeat: 11
>>
mostly 4, sometimes 5 and during pizza deliberies its a 6 or 7 provided its within laws and speed limits.
>>
During the day: 4-6
After 11pm: 8

It's a miata. Can't get myself into too much trouble because it's slow.
>>
>>14275243
In busy traffic?
1, to piss of everybody else on the road
when nobody else is there? probably like a 6 or a 7
>>
3-4 when commuting. I just get in the left lane and follow the guy ahead of me.

7-8 in the canyons, hard but with a decent margin of error and not driving my car to death.

Obviously 10 on the track.
>>
About a 6 unless I'm in a neighborhood, then I'm a 2.

That's really the beauty of the miata, I'm only going 10 over in a 45 but it feels plenty fast, especially when you fly around corners at green lights. It's just so light and fun. I'm actually kind of worried that it won't be as fun once I get a turbo because it will be too fast to drive like I do every day.
>>
>>14275243
On commutes... between 1-3. Late at night though it's between 6-8.

4 to 5 depending on the mood
>>
>>14275243
Most of the time 3-4. Sometimes when I wanna have a little fun I drive at 6.
>>
6
Would drive at 8 if not for the lethargic engine of the Cruze.
>>
Mostly a 6-7, 8 if I'm in a bad rush, but that rarely happens. usually a 4-5 late at night or on a long drive
>>
solid 7 even in traffic. Usually go 20mph above the speed limit
>>
Even if I floored it everywhere I went, my suburban would only be at a 5 compared to a decent car.

On the upside, its easier to push the limits of its grip at the speed limit since its so heavy and the tires are so skinny. It sounds great either way.
>>
>>14275243

Usually 3-4 90% of the time.

When I want to press on a bit I am probably a 6, don't really push my car hard on public roads any more.
>>
>>14275243
On country roads: 6-7. I give my shitbox plenty of throttle out of the corners but it's still pretty slow. I also go faster through corners than an average driver.
In town and on highway: 4. I accelerate faster than most cars from stoplights but don't speed much
On my motorcycle on country roads: 8. It's too easy to go fast.
>>
>>14275243
Usually 5-6, 7 when the mood really takes me.

I'll happily drop down to 3 for the sake of passengers, though.
>>
6, maybe 7 on your scale on a normal bases.

10 when I'm in a real fucking hurry, which has (fortunately) only happened twice.
>>
3-6, maybe 1 if its super cold outside and my gearbox is still full of molasses.
>>
>>14275243
Today i probably did a 7 it was so sick. headphones on and blasting trough a red light was rad as fuck
>>
>>14275243
1-8 depending on the time and day, mostly 3-6 though.

6-7 when blasting eurobeat, 4 when listening to anything else

Mostly 3. 6 when I'm in a rush. 8 when I'm agitated.

Mix of "old grandma" and "go with the flow" minus the lack of situational awareness and complacency.

3-4 on long highway hauls
6 normally
10 the time i offroaded my civic and broke the rad support.
>>
>>14275243
7 literally all the time
>>
Usually a 3 or a 4. I don't mind putting along with traffic with the radio on. Was 10 the other day, but I had to get my mom to the hospital since one of her stupid dogs ripped her arm open. doing 85 in a 35 in Michigan is a little scary in the winter. Especially in a pick up.
>>
3-5 daily.

I'd be doing 6-8 but I'm already dreading buying tires

7 if alone

In my dads truck or my mom's equinox, 8

In my truck, 6 or 7

In the nova, 3 with the occasional 9
>>
I guess about a 4 in my truck. No weird boy racer shit I'm just kind of aggressive in traffic, in the interest of safety really.

Then I get on my bike and scream around at 120mph all day long. Secretly I can't wait to crash and die.

If its someone else's car, 4. Maybe 6 if they ask.

If I own the vehicle and there's nobody I care about inside it, I rate myself a 13 (War Boy). I will happily plow off the highway doing 80 into a grassy field to do some donuts at 3 in the morning.

4.5

I go 10 over, stay in the right most of the time. Depending on the time of day or if I'm not in a hurry I'll stick to the right doing the speed limit. I drive an autotragic shitbox so who would I be trying to impress driving fast?
>>
I don't know honestly. I just drive and depending on my mood I pick a style. I only drive like a madman at night. During the day I never go 20 above the limit in the city and 30 above on the highway. I guess between a 4&9.
>>
About a 7-8
I drive an '02 Focus SVT, so it never really gets out of control for me. I do drive it crazy, though. E-brake drifts around some corners, accelerating to speed limit (+10) as fast as possible, etc.

Commutes 7
Late night 8-9 never take it past a certain limit I set for myself though, and if anything looks sketchy I avoid doing it(wet roads on big sweeping turns ect)
>>
>>14275243
lowest would be 2 and highest is 7, generally 3-4

7 when I'm in going fast on winding roads and doing skids in the rain, 2 when I'm driving my car while it warms up. I'll normally keep with traffic or if it's light enough filter though at 5-10 mph faster.
>>
>>14275243
commute is about 6-7
weekends depends on how much I had to drink. Just a few 5-6, too many 3. When I go out to the mountains 10 if I'm by myself 8 if I'm with someone.

It leads to use of 4-wheel drifting and heavy track-only maneuvers. Also double clutching every fuqqing shift while heel-toeing every tight turn.

but if anybody is around, the eurobeat is turned off... for safety.

I drive time sensitive things
and formerly heroin
which was more like
1/10
>>
I pretty much always give it at least 1/4 throttle off the lime, I just can't accelerate like a geriatric fuck like most people even when I'm the only car on the road. My time is valuable, I'd rather burn a bit of extra gas and get there way the fuck faster than sit there crawling to every light.

I usually brake late and hard but idgaf cuz that $7 brake pad, $50 rotors life. Almost every corner gets the Scandinavian flick in winter because shitty tires and FWD. I only drive slowly in crowded areas and school zones and when the road conditions warrant it .

Nobody should ever be going "Georgian BWM street drifting" mode on public streets.
>>
>>14275243
Depends.

When I want to save gas and normal commuting? Most of the time I'm a 3.

Coming home on Friday nights? 8. Got a lot of fun, windy, hilly roads here in Wisconsin. Went 90 in a 35 today, no cops, no other drivers. I just wish that I had a manual and not that 5 speed Toyota slushbox.
