    Looks more like a 12 second car for the rear tire size. Plenty fast though. Curiously, Challenger owners more play with their cars than Vette owners. Most Vette owners drive like the old guys driving them. It'd be nice if Chrysler would lose a few hundred pounds off their Challengers. Sharp cars though.

    Only EVIL people have 10 second cars.

    going 40 is twice as much as 20 in velocity, but FOUR times the KINETIC ENERGY..
    Slow down in town .
    I fully agree with slow down in down in town and overall around others. I don't think the chance someone somewhere might come into the picture in another vehicle suddenly creates horrific dangers for someone driving very fast on an open highway - and certainly not in relation to other life dangers people cause to others.

    As for stability, insurance etc, many hobbies, sports and recreational activities, are very dangerous. And I have no doubt there will be increasing pushes to outlaw and with increasing major penalties all those too.

    It also takes exponentially increasing amounts of power to accelerate and move a car once a car hits about 100, and only true super cars with the areodynamics to match can get past 160. The fabulous Lambrogheni Contact could only do 150 mph top speed, 160 if they removed the rear wing (which was dangerous to do at high speeds). By the 1980s, the fastest production cars made - even super exotics - couldn't reach 170 mph. Given 1950s Jaguars could reach 140, this wasn't much of a gain.

    It has only been the last few years that production cars, even the most exotic, could really go over 200 mph, despite claims otherwise. Most making such a claim still can't and peak out in the 190s.

    Tire technology isn't much good over 200 mph for continuous driving either. The fastest of all production cars, Buggati at 256 mph has tires that cost $10,000 each. When tested for the Buggati's weight, the tires are good for only 1 such run with safety and 2 only a possibility. When tested for 3 such 250 mph runs, nearly always 1 of the 4 will blow.

    The current limiting factor on super cars is NOT horsepower. It no longer even is areodynamics. It is tire technology.

    It had a Kenne Bell Super charger and I would change over to the hoosiers at the track. I like the Challenger becasue it is a bigger car, I don't like be cramped up in a small car.

    What should the officer do and what should the penalty be?

    Here in Ontario, Canada, if you're caught going more than 50kms - that's about 30mph - over the speed limit, your car is automatically impounded for 30 days and your license is automatically suspended, pending a court hearing. Going 100mph over the speed limit - 160kms - would possibly result in jail time.

    In Ontario, this is referred to as "stunt driving" due to several serious accidents where two idiots have been racing cars on city streets or provincial highways and one or both ended up killing themselves and sometimes several other innocents along the way.

    Personally, I have no problem with this but I would also state that our speed limits are too low now considering the safety and speed of vehicles being manufactured today. Racism alert here - there is one qualifier - that being any Asian driver - math geniuses, car driving disasters.

    we have new asian neighbors, they have hit our mailbox once backing out of their drive. They have also backed into a car in motion coming up the street.

    I've often joked that China's secret plan to take over the world is to send terrible drivers everywhere to "drive" us crazy.

    Greetings, CJ.

    The impoundment of vehicles and a license suspension seems a bit harsh if alcohol is not involved, but I bet it does cut down on repeat speeding. Does it?...

    We're due to get some snow Tues or Wed...

    Re: What should be penalty for 20mph+ over limit speeding?

    It is curious how the USA and much of the EU has become anti-capitalism, anti-freedom, billions of pages of regulations, laws and people ever demanding more punishments and more government controlling people - along with national corporate socialism for which everyone is response for everyone else's health, housing, food, and all of life's needs - while Russia and China are racing into capitalism and in Russia in some regards increasingly towards personal freedom.

    In Russia, the government is agreeable to shutting down highways to allow 1 kilometer street drag racing (over twice the typical quarter mile) in production and somewhat modified production cars. This mostly is so rich people can race each other.

    This would be unthinkable to allow in the USA. First, in the USA rich people are evil and allowing anyone to do anything that everyone can't do is totally intolerable. Unless everyone gets a Ferrari no one should have one, or at least no one should be allowed to enjoy one because that's "unfair."

    "Fairness" has replaced "freedom." The only way to obtain perfect fairness is to use government to reduce everyone to the absolute lowest common denominator.

    Second, OMG someone might get hurt! And the purpose of life and the purpose of government is making certain that no one ever gets hurt as the foremost purpose of government and of life. "Liberty or death" had been replaced with "Protect me!"

    Snow tires get worse gas mileage and should not be allowed as planet killers. They also do not stop as fast on dry payment so represent intolerably endangering others - particularly since they will have different reactions to braking, accelerating and turning than all the cars without them. What right do you have to endanger others this way?
