I've done some street racing. None in the T/A, but the old grey car saw quite a few red-light shoot outs. Even some everybody gets together and goes out to some way-out road and people flag the races street racing.

I dont even consider that street racing. Thats just cat and mouse bs.

To me street racing is you go meet somewhere at 9 pm gather the troops figure out whos throwing down money on whom or whatever what not. Go to the "track" run down your races and then go back to the spot and see who wants a part of whom. To me thats street racing.

Light to light can only be taken so far. I personally dont do light to light cause of the possiblities that can happen this is for day light time when the sun goes down and its entering mid eveving anything goes.

I dont race in traffic and those that do are the ones that give street racing the bad name. I prefer the first method I talked about cause well been doing that for 3 years now I prefer getting my need for speed on the street cause A. I dont have to drive 2 hours (about to be 6 since local track is now closing) to get a few runs in. B. I dont have to pay money to race instead you make it (if you have a fast enough car) C. no cage no limitations full blown balls to the wall racing

Then again I dont race with any 15 second rice boys and btw in the 3 years I been street racing theres only been one death and thats cause some dumb biker was messing around and he fudged up and broke his neck from doing an endo. Other then that nothing serious.

Street Racing is not a Crime :patriot:

you're kidding, right?

so, if a guy wakes up at 2 am with a sore throaght and a cough and he gets hit by street racers while walking to the drug store across the road, it's his fault?

or when a child has a 104 degree fever at 3 am and a mother gets hit buy a guy street racing while driving her kid to the hospital it's her fault too?

or when i'm coming home from work at 1 am and my truck gets slammed into racer, it's my fault as well?

so basically you guys have never had the need to smoke the person next to you? isnt that the whole reason for modding a car to smear someone when theyre not expecting it?

organized streetracing is the bad one. get 1000 immature kids with 400 crappy imports who all think theyre better than everyone else, and you get fights, stabbings, shootings, stolen cars, etc. all in one night. and i have seen this and i will never go again. compared to how many times someone races at a stoplight and how many people get in a accident its like the chance of crashing in a airline.


mabye its just my city. after all, we do have McHenry, the street that "american Graffitti" was based on(george lucas grew up in modesto, duh), so everyone knows mchenry is the place to be at weekends if you have a fast car. people from sac to fresno will converge on this street on a good weekend. and the ricers all pack up and leave to go to "the runs" by 11 so the stupid immature punks are gone by then, all thats left is the hicks in the trucks, a few hoes, and alotta mustangs and fbodies, and me(the undergog). this is one of them streets where you cant park on the side, and each stop is a light(coincidence?) this street was CREATED for stoplight races, the intervals between each are almost perfect for some 2-3 gear rolls.

1. look both ways before crossing, learnt that when i was 3. and usually you can tell when 2 cars are racing, unless they have really quiet mufflers.
2. unless the punk ricers are daring enough to actually run stoplights(which none have the balls to do thank god)
3. if a ricer slams into youre truck, sucks to be them, more than likely theyll suffer alot more than you will.

i cant go to the track, theres 3 things working against me.
1. its 2 hours away, i have a dsm, the possibilities of getting stranded are too high a risk, besides, once it happens to you you will never want to go back either(dam alt).
2. i am convertible, i might get 1 run in before they tell me to leave.
3. i am fwd+turbo. if you have ever tried to race a fwd with more power than a honda from a dig, you will feel my pain. its basically not gonna happen.

so by those factors i am basically tuning my car for street/highway monster. if "the track" meant so much to me ida got a gsx/awd.


i know theres alot more people with fast cars who have them for the single reason of owning people on the streets on these forums that need to vote like its bush vs kerry again.

you keep saying this, but it's not true. ive been to the organized races in san antonio. organized street races are still stupid, but i honestly think they're much safer then racing from lights on busy streets.

and when 2 cars are traveling at 90+ mph on a curvy road, it may not be that simple.

thats how almost all the street racing accidents are caused down here. i mentioned that 3 teens were killed last friday - they tried to run a stoplight.

no, it sucks to be me. i sure as hell don't wanna get in a wreck because some little punk didn't want to go to the track.

Save it all for the track. Whenever I go to the track, it makes me street race less. Road coarse races are the best way to lose the urge to street race. It is so much fun. You get outta the car & your whole body is shaking especially your clutch foot.

Not everyone is fortunate to have a track near by us. The nearest track near me is LVD which is a smig over 2 hours away. This week it was annouced that a new owner is taking over and is closing down the place which makes the next nearest place over 4 hours away.

I personally dont ever wanna drive my car over 2 hours distance esp that im s/c-ed. and 4 hours ha wouldnt even attempt it.

Last time I went to the track it cost me 40 bucks and I got in a measely two runs. Thats not worth it.

Im all for the organized street racing. Thing is most of you keep forgetting theres a differ between a bunch of rice boys going to the racing spot where there usually is some sort of flow of traffic near by racing in one single lane compared to those who go to a meet spot set up the races then venture off to a nice safe location where theres 2 lanes you go race then go back to the spot where you were at. and do it all over again. now thats ORGANIZED street racing

But no matter what people are always gonna think street racing is a big no no and or not a big issue. Street racing is a past time and will continue no matter what

im actually amazed by this thread

the steriotypical mustang guy is all for street racing, rev's at everything, races everything, bla bla bla

i for one, dont have a problem racing someone every so often, but if i feel it to be unsafe, i wont do it, no matter how much i want to

ive only darted through traffic playing cat and mouse once, it was a lot of fun, but i saw how close i was cutting it, and decided to stop

no i personally dont think its ok but i will admit i do race but never above 80 and usually just to the speed limit. In SA we have a track that you can pay 15 and get all the runs in that you can and guess what theres no tickets either.
