tried drifting around a corner. on accident. this was after cdot put down magnesium chloride down and lost the back end on an on ramp and into guard rail. fun times. only a broken bumper trim and small dent in fender.

I thought race stories about doing that on public streets was a big no-no here. :nono:

then talk about your track stories

I guess it is one of those things everyone has a story or two but considering it is illegal and dangerous it is a bad look when openly discussed and therefore is better left unmentioned. That is my opinion anyway.

Don't get me wrong im not saying im a 'goody good'. I just think it is not something that should be promoted or encouraged. We love our cars and may break some road rules sometimes but I am just saying think about it. Street racing is illegal for a reason. Things can go wrong in an instant, you only live once and no matter what you think you are not invincible.

speeding way too much and for way too long ? :confused: what amount of speeding is safe? how long do you have to speed before you are risking your life ? :rolleyes:

it's called speeding because you are going too fast.

a kid i knew and his girlfriend were killed in 07' going an estimated 60mph less than a mile from the house they were at. you don't need to be going 140mph for 5 minutes to be in a fatal car accident.

Opposed to street racing
 
The track is where its at :thumbup:
You run your car under controlled conditions (to an extent), have medics on hand and people who can advise & mentor you.
I know a lot of people street-race, but they must not expect me to help them when the sh1t hits the fan. No respect there :thumbdwn:
Why don't they hit the track ? There is a class for everynoe :) At least over here

e30325i 01-22-2013 07:35 AM

everybody speeds u can b killed sitting at a stoplight..goin 5 over is speeding they were goin 150 for a good while..there's a little difference between a qtr mile race n busting down the hw at 150 for miles when most street races dont last more than a few seconds just long enough to show who got the stronger car.. u can b killed following evry road rule.. u can have fun but dnt push it like they were
