Default Racing... I do, I dont, Its Stupid, Its Fun?

there seems to be a lot of discussion about racing and a poll is a good way of seeing how people feel without having to say on a public forum "i race"... inless of course you want to.


1. I dont race what so ever - you build ur car as a hobby or just for show.

2. ONLY at the track - you race legally ONLY 100% of the time. auto-x or drag. NOTHING is done on the street, no highway gear drops or light to light.

3. Stop Lights - every once and a while ill run a stop light to stop light if the road looks clear and ive got a worthy competitor.

4. Highway/From a roll - when im on the highway and someone pulls up next to me ill drop to a lower gear and see who pulls from the other

5. Night Races - on the weekends i like to get with a small group and go to a location not used by other drivers. normally in a wooded or industrial area. i make sure that everything looks as safe as possible but it is 100% illegal.

lets be honest when we vote fellas

we set up each race seperately. so its not just a week end thing. its a sit down and discuss when where and how were gonna do it. then we meet up and go do that run.

And sometimes from a roll if the situation is ok.

I DO NOT race on the street. I think the reasons are fairly obvious. Besides, my job depends on a clean driving record.

I do race on the track though, mostly autoX.

Back in NYC I had bad experiences with highway racing and racing on city streets. Mostly it was people loosing control when they hit a pothole or seam in the road, that or a car pulled out in front of them. This is why we moved out to the dock and industrial areas, they are pretty well maintained and we weren't endangering other motorist when we lost control, worst case senerio was a trip to the body shop or getting some stiches.

Just remember the worst part of street racing isn't when your wreck your car, or even getting sent to the hospital, it's when you take out that familly of five cause you decided to race before you learned how to drive.

Lates.

well...I race people on the street and highway mostly. Stoplights are too short and there are no curves. And you guys are right, its getting really dangerous (cops are fucking everywhere now) to even screw around on the highway now...fuckers

So you would rather race someone on the streets where there's curves? nice. That's pretty stupid
