Well, I met up with chris92084 at California Speedway last night, and finally put to rest that age old fact, that 40 more horses doesnt mean that you will always win.

We raced a total of 7 times together, and chris92084 ran 2 times while my car was cooling down.

I won 5 of the 7 races we did, one, I lost with a .430 redlight, and the other race, I lost fair and square because my girlfriend was in the car :rolleyes: .

On our best race, it was only 3/10ths of a second that set up apart, and by far, was the best race that we did all night.

I have video and pictures of the races, which I will post tomorrow.

Anyway, we call it a night at around 10ish, and take off. My girl and I went out and talked a little because one of her old friends was having issues with her. So I calmed her down a little bit by talkiing to her. I drop her off at around midnight after getting gas and start on my way home.

No more than 3 blocks from her house, a VW Golf come besides me, flips me off, and speeds away. Now birng that I had just come back from the races, I still had a little fight left in me, so I match him up at the next stop sign. Little bastard. He goes, and I go right after him. Just as I throw it into 2nd, a cop was hiding at the "T" intersection ahead. I idnt see him. The Golf Nails his brakes and takes a hard left turn behind me. Cops turns around, and starts following me. Damn it, I KNEW I was caught, and there was nothing I could do about it.

I went past main street and he lights me up. I procede about 100 yards ahead into a parking area, because I did not feel safe parking on the side of one of the busiest streets in Corona. He hits his siren for a second because I didn't pull over right away. But I'm sure he appreciated the fact that he didnt have to worry about traffic, so he didnt mention anything to me about that.

Anyway, he comes up, and starts talking about his old Chevelle that he used to have and not to give him any lip about not racing, because we both knew I was, so I play it straight with the guy and openly admitting that I was racing. Which wasn't a good idea in hindsight, because if he wanted to, he could play that in court and have my car impounded and I would never see my stang again.

Anyway, he walks around my car, and I just have my hands on the wheel... just thinking "oh please dont take my car, oh please dont take my car". He comes back up to me and tells me a story of how he was caught, and they took his car but he got it back in 30 days. HE said that he was in my shoes, and was thankful that the cop didnt take his car forever. Seeing how Corona has that new policy since 2F2F came out, you race, you loose your car, he didnt want that. He said he was writing me up for failure to stop at the stop sign and no front plates.

I have to be in court at 1230 on the 5th of next month. :(

Now... to tell my parents. I pay for my own insurance under them, but I'm sure this isn't going to help it at all. 200 a month insurance... here I come :(.

On a lighter note, I'm giving up street racing. Getting caught is just too nerve racking. :x

how many pts is failure to stop?

Im gunna guess 2. Its nothing big. Go to court, fight it, youll prob lose the 2 points and just pay a higher fine.

You know what would happen if I try ti fight it? The cop had a tape recorder and was recording the whole conversation... INCLUDING the fact that I was racing.. which I openly admitted to. He plays that for the judge, I get in deeper ####, and probably end up walking back to work... thank you very much :x . I aint fighting ####. I still have the traffic school option.

don't fight ####, if you make the cop show up after he LET YOU OFF, he may get pissed and WANT to take your damn car. Pay the fine, and learn your lesson, you shouldn't have done it Evin.....stupid move buddy

yeah, failure to stop (ie, rolling a stop sign) is only 2-3 points depending on where you live (been stopped twice for it).

never once did it go on my record though. you can just show up to court, and ask for a plea bargin. do defensive driving and pay the fine, and it doesnt go on your record. and as for the front plates, just put one on before you goto court, and that will be taken off. they also have something like driving probation, where you pay the ticket, and if you dont get another ticket w/in 90 days, then the points from the first dont go on your record. but if you do, both tickets automatically go on.

it was nice of the guy. i wish i could get a nice cop for once. but now do you see why street racing is not worth it? one of the many reasons i dont do it

umm... dont know if you guys know this or not. NJ has the STRICTEST and WORST driving-related punishments. Highest car insurance, etc....

Its bad advice? lol... Its bad advice NOT to plea bargin. Im surprised at how many people are telling him to just take the points. All of YOU should stop the bad advice.

Dont lecture me on tickets, Ive been to court too many times to count, in three states. :wtf:

Rellik, that sucks that you got nailed, but, when you were racing at the track, how can your redlight on a .430? .400 is a perfect R/T.

lol, hey I havent had a ticket since christmas time... Ive been pulled over for no front plate since then tho (just no ticket) but I eventually put the plate on.

I HAVE to behave now.... NJ makes you take a driving class after 4or more points in your first year, and after completion, you go on probation for 1 year. Lucky me I was at school for 9 months, so I took my class this past july 8 and NOW am on probation till next july 8 :oops: :rolleyes: ;)
