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

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 ? what amount of speeding is safe? how long do you have to speed before you are risking your life ?

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.

Thumbs down Opposed to street racing

The track is where its at
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
Why don't they hit the track ? There is a class for everynoe At least over here

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
