Street racing is stupid, you made the correct choice.

i backed out of a race in my turbo coupe

i was cruisin the rice hot spot, and a red Talon TSi flies up next to me, and i hear "PPPFFSHHHHHHHH", sounded like an RFL, saw pillar gauges, and what appeared to be a turbo timer, so i gave him the thumbs up, he nodded, and i kept doing the speed limit, he bucked a few times, i didnt even look over after that

^^^mmm sounds spiffy. you shouldve gaven him a run, more than likely if hes venting with a rfl he has no idea what he is really doing.

me and my freind with his eclipse had a 3 way with yet another "v8 are god" ******* GT driver. needless to say he has a new hatred for teh turbo dsm. getting raped by at least 3 cars before 3rd by not 1 but 2 cars at the same time.

ran into a 3 pack of supras, 2 actually turbo, 1 that was bone stock, the other said he had mods but it didnt look fast(he did a little flyby). they wouldnt race though, even when there was a big patch of no cars. id love to add some poopras to my ever growing kill list.

ummm.. supras are in no way a "poopra" So what if its not a turbo, maybe the guy doesnt have that much money... however the looks of the car completely destroy those of your solar eclipse

Thats the most retarded thing I have ever heard!

You did the right thing by backing out! I think you made a very wise choice!! It takes way more guts to say no, than to race someone because you don't want your ego to be bruised!

You have to think of your life and the lives of others out there on the road, it would be all too easy for something to go wrong and end up in an accident that could effect you way more than any ego boost!

eh they remind me of elongated celicas(before the new design). and theyre too overpriced and unless you have 50g to spend on the car+mods theyre too underpowered for the price. they do have 1200hp potential, but its said that youd be putting down a grand or more per every 100hp. you do the math. now add in the price of the supra(25000 for a black one in san jose, tt 6spd) and thats alot of money.

or you could just buy a 03/04 cobra, slap some pulleys, 4.1 tloc and tune and some m/t slicks and run 11's and call it a day, and still be up 10g's.

well, considering stock for stock, a TSi is faster than my TC, and at the time, my TC was making 5psi rather than the 15 it was supposed to make stock, its pointless
