    Hey all, I am new too this forum and thinking about buying a V8 challenger. My question is how hard is it too drive the speed limit on these cars (city streets mainly). I get the impression that it’s damn near impossible. I drive for work so I actually want to somewhat obey the driving laws.

    Any help/experience would be awesome!

    Easy to do the speed limit in any car, just drive normal.

    I used my challenger as a daily driver for 2 years. No tickets during any of that time. The nice thing about driving it was I knew if I wanted to get on it, it would go.

    Just drive normal and listen to the Hemi talk back to you. We get a lot of unwanted attention from other drivers including snobby looks from Subaru Paul Walker(RIP) wannabes. I have caught some of the cops around here looking at my Purple Thing like a hunter would look at a six point bull elk during hunting season. The Dodge Challenger demands attention as in back in the day '70-'72 and today, never mind if we like it or not. Enjoy.

    I recently picked up a Dodge Dakota and use it pretty much as my daily driver. Except for Fridays, I get my Challenger out and enjoy it. As has been said our Challengers draw attention especially if you have loud exhaust and/or color. As my bright orange rumbles by everyone sees and hears me.

    If you can't control yourself then you shouldn't be driving.
