Why some slow cars FEEL fast

Ever wonder why certain cars give you a rush while others don't, even at the same speed? Well there's tons of science and math behind why some cars feel fast and others don't. we look at the difference between Speed and Acceleration, the phenomenon of "Jerk", and how the manufacturers can even tune in a sense of speed. Everything from the suspension to the chassis, to the windows come into play. In this video we explore how much a drivers sense of speed can be affected, and just how susceptible our host Jeramiah really is to all of it.

Simple answer is... they don't!. Slow cars feels fast cause they don't have much power and fast ones have potential and you know it and you felt it before!!

Dankie/ Merci Donut Media. Now I know what is and how to use an ACCELERATION meter. 100km/h (60mi/h) in my Renault 5 (1980) is like light speed! 100km/h (60mi/h) in the BMW 528i (1980) feels very-very slow and DEAD.

This is actually something ive noticed after passing my drivers license. In driving school we had a VW Golf 7 and at home we have 1. gen VW Touran. And in the Touran i drive about 5 km/h faster by feel (than in the Golf) , because the Golf has a softer suspension than our Tourans, and im not having the same bodyroll that Im used to from driving school. So Im acelerating more than i have to, to have the effekt that Im used to

Is just that the suspensions are so old that they basically dont have suspension so it feels like your going 300mph because suspension done and bumps yea

I will say this. I drive faster in my nissan rogue than my parent's vehicles.... 1) its my car so I can be more edgy with it 2) its a higer vehicle than their sedans/convertibles Audi a7, Mercedes c400, and slk 350 convertible. 3) their cars cost more lol Ironically I'm enjoying my cvt more than the traditional vvt. I literally had to look at the speedometer to stay at 35 in a 35. Otherwise I'd drive 30 in a 35. In my own vehicle id drive 40 in a 35. Sometimes up to 45. No higher. Basically i have to REMIND myself to slow down in my car but speed up in his convertible. And sedans are the easiest to maintain proper legal speed. But the get up on their vehicles are truly amazing. Lol, they have more jolt/jerk. Mine never jerks even if I floored it. The revs will roar but the 170HP, 175 lb/ft torque is NOT goona win any drag races. I still love it though. 28 city/38 highway mpg. She's 3 years old now and i think id buy another Rogue once this one dies.

I knew it for most part atleast the ride height. My mum always overreacted that i was going to fast due to louder exhaust and lower ride height in my old Celica, but i always was going below the limit in these. In SUVs i find myself speeding accidentally. It could also be set of tips for game designers to finally make it feel fast to drive. So many games like Gran Turismo and Forza fail miserably at capturing the sense of speed of cars making it looks incredibly bland mostly because of very badly done camera work, lowering it and widening the fov would surely improve the sense of speed.

Adrenaline does make you react faster, i am no scientist. But i experienced. It kicks in so fast, our brain becames super focused, being able to react at speeds at wich we normaly can't, it helps you take split second decisions. It almost makes you immune to shock or pain. Is litteraly what armies dream of to make a drug for soliders. Problem with it is, it exhausts you very very fast. I am simply describing what i felt when it kicked in. Is what people call clutch in videogames. And it litteraly does that, make you faster. I drove a 3litre Jeep once, and it felt like a cloud, i could not feel the road, or the speed in that car, on the highway. I mean you do want to feel all the vibrations, the vibrations from the tires, the gearbox, the engine, this is how you read the road, if is sand, or water, or is simply slippery cuz there are trees on the side. Sure you don't one those garbage builds wich have 2 inches of springs stiff as wood, and another inch of rubber as a tire, that is just plain stupidity. People call it "traditions" but we must see that some traditions are Bullshit. I guess you want a car wich is kind of balanced, you feel the vibrations just enough so you can feel and read the car, and also give you plasure driving it. And Also you want a car wich doesn't kill your back, or your ears on a long ride. I mean every real driver out there knows that slippers or whatever you call those tires are simply garbage. To me real drifters are the rally drivers. They drift out of necesity, where ricers simply abuse tires. Lower gard cars makes you feel alot more conected to the surface you're driving on.

I usually find it's a combination of lower to the ground (I've found big vans feel quite slow for the actual road speed), more road noise and bumps, more wind noise and panel rattles, possibly engine noise too. If it's a convertible, feeling the wind increases the speed sensation - another reason why bicycles feel faster than cars for the same speed despite being quieter and higher up (although the wind blowing in your ears you probably hear a louder sound than driving) and also the feeling of instability in a vehicle makes it seem faster. Whereas I bet something like a rolls royce is one of those cars you can float along peacefully at over 100 mph. Or within a less extravagant budget a Vauxhall insignia 2.0 tdi felt surprisingly relaxing at 80 mph.

The year was 1996, the place USA PA. When my Dad and I would drive all day long in a snubbed nosed Mack we felt like we were not going that fast. When he got into the Chevy Lumina, it felt like the same speeds were faster. Also if you drive like a snail on back roads for a while, then go the speed limit. It feels like you are flying. Because your brain got used to the low speeds.

I'm not sure he understand the concept of vehicle upgrades. If somebody upgrades their exhaust system to sound rougher, chances are, they speed. I'm talking from experience. Grandma's don't x-pipe their minivans. They also drive slow on sundays.

I think this video was a great idea but really fell short of what I was hoping to find out. What features, attributes, characteristics should I look for in a car to find one that will feel "fast". Do i want a higher torque, or lower horse power, or a certain ratio, etc, etc?

The same principle can explain why wide multi lane roads with buildings set well back are more dangerous than narrow streets with everything close together. Wide roads give the driver less new information to process and feel feel slower, so people unconsciously drive faster. So road authorities that widen streets and improve sightlines in the name of safety are actually making the safety problem worse. Add in the trend towards big SUVs and trucks and you explain why more and more pedestrians have been getting killed by cars in recent years.
