Say, for example, you have really good tires and/or all wheel drive. This means when the weather is warm and dry, you can have some wide open throttle fun without breaking the tires loose. Is accelerating viciously from a stop up to the speed limit considered reckless driving? This is often how i get my kicks without (at least i think) risking too much in the way of penalty. We have some roads here with traffic lights and 55 mph speed limits, so the ole 0-60 can be fun times.
