    I am not sure if I should post this here but I have to ask , when going down the road at 50 it feels like I am going 80 . Dose anyone else get this feeling? Is it due to the open feeling, seeing the tires , engine, etc

    Your Speedo is not calibrated. You were going 80!

    I think you have figured it out. These T-buckets are kinda like a Harley with 4 wheels. The wind in your face, the tires singing, the roar of the exhaust, it's all part of what makes them such a blast to drive!

    Hmmm, I usually think I’m doing fifty and am actually doing eighty, lol! The feel of a bike or convertible is different than a closed cab vehicle for sure.

    I sold the Harley and picked up a 2017 Dodge ram 34K miles love this truck being an older guy keeps me from hitting things with the sensors all the way around and the back up camera is unbelievable . paid cash for it so no payments :)

    That is pretty much the same feeling I get with my 23T. The steering on these cars is quite sensitive and the sensitivity is more noticeable at speed. It seems to me also that when one gets up over 60 MPH the air drag against the flat windshield and slanted roof makes the front of the car light.

    Had a Harley. Got thinking “this thing goes to fast to need propping up when you get off of it”.
