Why is it that I feel like I'm driving faster in my mom's car when doing the same speed in my own?
Different cars make for different sensations. For example, I feel like Im going faster in my truck than I my friends' car because my truck sits higher and I can see my surroundings better.
Different types of cars
The weight of the car.
Drive a new Caddilac and an old clunker you will know smoother better suspension better shocks quieter.
Its how high your sitting and how long the hood is
Your closer to the ground. How fast a vehicle feels is directly related to the distance from the ground. You'll feel even slower if you was driving a truck.
