    street racing is gay

    that aside, a 5.0 mustang fox-body, or maybe an older transam. most imports won't go fast with 8k

    just what we need -- another asshat street racing to kill another innocent person. You should be shot before you have the chance of getting behind the wheel.

    buy a reliable daily driver, save some of the money, and consider another hobby. if you want to go street racing, play some video games, modifying cars is not for you.

    In that case: Ford Festiva. Fast enough to get you in trouble with the law, slow enough to keep you alive once you fuk up and roll it over. :coolugh:

    Oh, and the other $7,500 can go towards bail money or savings or whatever.

    can you fit 20's on a ford festiva? if they dont fit, get 30" wheel spacers. you'll get mad respect at the races... especially south of the border.

    90-94 DSM they are going to get you the best bang for the buck in that price range. Plus you'll fit in with all the recent owners of DSM's, poor ass posing kids that don't know shit.

    If you were serious at all, you would know one: Never say that you are going to street race, even guys that do street race don't talk about it. Two: you'd know what the fuck you were going to build to begin with, you'd own it already, and be building it.

    For 8g's I say buy a bike. That way it's fast, and then when you fuck up, you will just kill yourself. :x:

    2 days ago, there was a HUGE accident on the corner of Jackson and Riverside, where I live. It occured because some idiot was driving 100mph in a street race and ran a red light. He T-boned someones car. This happened about 5-10 minutes after I had gone through that intersection on my way home from work.

    Streetracing kills people. We're not talking about 5mph over the speed limit... we're talking about two people focusing on going as fast as they can, and completely disregarding other people's safety. I often stay late at work, and had I gotten out 5-10 minutes later, that could have been me. I full-heartedly support stronger punishment against street racing, and anyone that thinks it's okay to street race needs to wake up. What if you lost a loved one to a street race? That wouldn't be okay with you, so why do you think it's acceptable for others to give you that authority?

    there was a shooting in a mall near me, my sister works there she got out of work as it started to happen. she still works there and our house still has a rifle in it. just because people street race dont mean there killing people. the guy ran a red light. if i ever race any one im not doing it any city with lights, its on an open streight country road where you can see people coming.

    Well for 8 grand, if you want just a fast car or a car that can be built up....240SX, 4th Gen Prelude SI, early Civic Hatchback.

    Street racing is stupid and I would not advise it. I am not going to try and stand here and say I am perfect and you should be like me because I used to street race all the time but looking back on it I got very lucky that I never got into an accident or killed anyone. Now I just take it to the track. Trust me on this

    But for 8K I would get the following

    91-92 Toyota MR2 Turbo- 5-7K and very reliable and fast.
    89-93 Ford Mustang GT- 2-4K and with a supercharger will be real quick. Not too reliable though.
    91-94 Mistubishi Eclipse GSX- 6-8K. Fast AWD car but again not too reliable.
    92-95 Honda Civic Hatchback- 2-4K. Slow stock but multiple motor swap options and a decently reliable car.
    89-93 Nissan 240sx- 2-4K. Not too fast but SR20 swap will definately wake the car up and the motor is very strong and reliable.

    hope that helps.

    super. a site with a kills section but the members are against street racing. and don't tell me it's for track stories only. find a local street racing website and don't bother with these pansies.
