Re: Whats cheaper
street racing is not drag racing. street racing kills.
what's cheaper? lawsuits certainly are not. potential loss of your license is not. a friend was cited for a "speed contest". hired a lawyer, is facing misdemeanor charge & loss of license.
i "commute" to etown & island dragway (NJ) from queens, NY.(during the week i am "green",i take the bus to work). no trailer, just a 5spd stang, no A/C, no P/S. traffic & tolls are a hassle, but worth it. i have AAA plus, which covers free tows up to 100 miles. had to use this service twice (in 2008 & 2009).
so go to a local track for test & tune, grudge nite, brackets or autoX & have fun & peace of mind.
