Tú conduces demasiado rápido. Would it not be "rapidamente"?
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Using demasiado, bastante, un poco, and muy for too, quite, a bit, and very (quantitative adverbs)"

"Rápido" can be used both as an adjective and an adverb. When used as an adverb, it works like "rápidamente".
In this sentence though, it would sound a bit odd to say "Tú conduces demasiado rápidamente". It is only because it is accompanied by "demasiado", and rápido sounds better.
The same happens for example with lento/lentamente. They are interchangeable. For example: Ellos caminan lento (They walk slowly)= Ellos caminan lentamente. (They walk slowly).
Thanks for your question.
