    Kinda fast?

    Hello,

    Can I say:

    That car drove kinda fast.

    Does "Kinda Fast" mean fast or slow?

    First of all, the car does not drive. It is driven by somebody.

    That driver/pilot drove kinda fast. or That car was driven kinda fast.

    Kinda means: rather, somewhat, sort of, slightly etc. That means the driver was driving fast, but not too fast.

    Kinda is the informal version of kind of. Do not use it in formal speech.

    Nobody will stop you saying it, but you'd be well advised to write 'kind of'.

    It means 'rather fast'.
