this was probly my favorite race i have done before, even though it was kind of an "accidental racce" and kind of a bad idea because i put other peoples lives in danger but...


ok well, i was out with my ex girlfriend, her sister, and her best friendwe had went to the mall or somewhere that night, but she had to be home at a certain time (at 10:30) and the time was 10:20... and it was a 20 minute drive to her house...

so im driving pretty fast trying to get herhome in time weaving through traffic and stuff, then at a stop light im revving my engine a little bit so i can get a good start off, but what i didnt know was there was a guy in a modded VW jetta right next to me, and him hearing me rev my engine he thought i was challenging him, but i didnt notice him because i was talking to my girl

so the light turns green, before i even react i hear tires squealing and his taillights in front of me so im just like :eek: oh shit this mofo wants to race! i mash the gas and catch up to him when i get to 3rd and pass him to where hes about 1-2 car lengths behind me (and at this time my girls sister and best freind were goin crazy panicking in the back seat lol because im goin like 80+ on one of the busiest streets in the city) but then all of a sudden he just SHOOTS right past me and im just like :wtf: i actually thought i smelled nitrous but wasnt too sure, plus i figured he wouldnt use nitrous on a race that wasnt that serious..

so neways i try to catch up but once i reach about 115 mph i just slow down because i got tired of the girls in the back yelling at me, but the guy was at a stop light ahead so i pull up next to him but before we get to talk the light turns green and we had to go our seperate ways, but when he pulled off i heard a turbo under the hood when he shifted gears so that just made me think he was toying with me the whole time anyway (i was at a bad disadvantage lol, my car is stock and i had 3 extra people in the car adding weight)

but anyways it was fun, i still see the guy driving around sometimes and i want a rematch haha next chance i get

i also raced a truck that night and won, but mainly because the guy stopped after we hit 90mph

cant wait till i finally get some mods on my car though



P.S. - i still got my girl home on time :bigthumbu the clock turned exactly 10:30 when i pulled in her driveway, but i was driving 100+ most of the time especially when i got on the back roads and the girls were goin crazy the whole time, i just laughed at them

this isn't drag racing, this is street racing. There is a difference.

Im not starting up anything. I made a comment on naming conventions in reply to someone's public post. If a mod wants to remove it, so be it. I have no qualms about sharing my opinion.

it is both a street race and a drag race. Drag races are basically straight shot races mono y mono.

As far as weaving through traffic.. don't do it. I'm not one to down street racing, because we all do it, just.. not in traffic.. That's the dumbest thing you can do. Plus the fact that you had others in your car.

oh.. I beat a probe tonight. Yaay... not a big deal.

make a street racing form for us street racers??? just an idea but it would keep from having this problem of drag racer ragging on street racers and vice versa....just my opinion

You need to drop this attitude. You are endagering people around you, and eventually its going to catch up with you.

I strongly advise that you rethink your driving habits. Understand?

No its VCRAP. You can probably take that dude if he stops being a baby and always going for his bottle know what i am saying. those 1.8 T may have a turbo but there only pushing about a buck 30-40 out of the box. Turbo your car and then have some more fun.

While this is a good idea to get street racing and drag racing separated, the creation of a forum dediccated to street racing can be viewed as an endorsement by Celicatech. We are very against that idea.

As for PapiChulo, I am glad you are many states away from me. I like having my family remain unslaughter by ignorance on the streets.

Edit: I mean people like you.

I hope these change your mind about street racing. I would hate to hear about anyone from this site in an accident like these
