Street Racing

I know I have included the word "cruising" or "cruise" site in some of my threads. I don't mean Street Racing nor do I condon or endorse this behavior.

We need a poll on the ethical dilemma of street racing.

In Limbo at all times

Street Race

Responsibly might be in order. Time, place, conditions, maximum speed and risk to others. Most on this site are sensible?
A pole here with the right circumstances may reveal some interesting results.

it seems to me that there is a lot of street racing going on guys that haul the car to a place then call it a street car they never go to the track because there cars would not pass tech and therefore not safe. times have changed you will lose your ride go to jail maybe prison if you kill some one then the widow will sue you in court and take everthing else you have left

Trailered race cars showing up at the street races is nothing new. It was always fun to watch the mad dash as they tried to load their cars back on the trailer when the cops showed up.

It's surprising to me that a bunch more people around here didn't get hurt back in the "good old" street racing days. Cars crashing into the back of other cars during burnouts and I'm standing right there a few feet away (holy sh*t!). Cars racing on the highway access road getting crossed up & shooting to the left catapulting down onto the highway entrance ramp (ouch!). Cars loosing balancers and flywheels (yikes!). An Anglia not stopping in time and crashing/bouncing into a field (FIRE!). A chebby monza crashing because a slick hit the curb during the burn out (scuff that paint!). Yea....good times (LOL).

It is hard enough in the current Political climate of Governmental Materalism/Political Correctness/Rapid Environmentalism to get others to understand why Dragstrips are necessary/performance cars should be allowed. Street Racing by its very nature generates negative Publicity that performance cars don't need. ops: :idea:

This Is My Take ON Things AGREE/DISAGREE THATS YOUR RIGHT :!: :!:

where do you think performance cars came from to start with. it wasnt till those (ricers and fast and furios) idiots and those stupid movies came out that street racers got a bad rep. hell most people dont even know about real street racers and where real races take place. 511 fox you probably didnt know it but street racing is what started the muscle car craze in the 60s chrysler even used to test at night time on woodward ave in mi and it was ok then no negative publicity? thats what sold cars. we dont generate any negative publicity because we are not in the public eye like 16 year old rice racers with moms mini van racing in heavy traffic

Yes that is true as far as the beginnings but there is a big push by a mulitude of parties to push the street racers to the track. I agree with them. The streets aren't a controlled environment like the track and even there accidents happen its just they have help already there. :roll:

For your welfare and the welfare of others keep it on the track.
:idea:

PS. You can call me Mike. You may not agree with me and I with you, but I don't dislike you.

Come on now, you can't blame this one on the ricers, it's just not true. Street racing didn't recently get a bad rep just because of the ricers, It has ALWAYS had a bad rep because its illegal & can be dangerous to others. This was true in the 50's & the 60's and it's true today. There wasn't a butt load of boom-box ricers street racing in the late '70's when I first started going to the street races, but the cops hated you doing it just as much then as they do today.
