Street Racing - August 13th 2009, 09:14 AM

I figure this could go here, I wanna get everyone's thought on this "behavior". I constantly have the need to go fast in my car (85-90MPH+) and race any 'ricer' that comes up and tries to challenge me...

This has grown from just little 80-120 MPH pulls on the freeway to doing double the speed limit crossing double yellow's on the back canyon roads going against other people.

I love racing, and I don't want to stop.

How do you guys feel about street racing?

Edit: For those wondering what I race, it's a 2004 Mustang GT 4.6L V8 with a CAI, tune, under drive pulleys, 4.1 gears, and soon a turbo. Putting down around 270RWHP right now... After the turbo 400+ rwhp.

I think street racing is okay personally if you're doing it where there is no one around. I mean, doing it on the highway... not so much.

Have you ever thought of investing your money and time into racing? We have a track down here for amaturs (My uncle used to race) and that's how he got over street racing all the time.

If you have a stick shift, the wonderful thing I figured out today, is pick a gear that you're not going to go over depending on the speed limit and your car. Then you worry too much about the trans to go faster.

The best wayout is always through~
