    My GTO was the chase car....

    Race was from around a 25 punch

    Camaro SS = Automatic , Intake , Exhaust , SLP MAF // Passenger

    SRT4 = Mopar Stg 1, Intake / Exhaust / PCM / BOV / Wastegate? // No Passenger

    Chase car = 2005 GTO m6... intake / exhaust / tune // passenger 371 rwhp. GTO was on 19" rims and street tires so it took it a minute to catch back up after spinning.

    It was a good run.

    blah blah blah

    :rolleyes:

    Go preach to someone who gives a damn.

  4. I bet you'll give a damn when you end up in jail and your car ends up impounded. Or when you end up in the morgue. Or when you cause someone else to end up in the morgue.

    How much does it cost to go to a test 'n tune night at a dragstrip? I bet it's less than lawyer/court fees when you get pulled over for acting like an idiot on the street. Seriously, the last thing that real car enthusiasts need is a bunch of idiots racing around on the streets.

    Sigh.

    Test n Tune night is 20 bucks, plus a 2 hour drive to the closest drag strip.

    There's a lot more dangerous things in the world than a short 20-120 punch on the highway.

    Everyone you saw in the video knew the risk they were taking, and no other lives were put in danger aside from the participating parties. In fact, the trucker you see in the video was egging us on the entire time and went ahead to see who was going to win.
     
  6. $20 and a 2 hour drive? My bad, I guess it's ok to streetrace then. :ugh:

    Oh, I guess if the trucker told you to do it...


    How about those other cars next to you guys in the lane? Was there some sort of invisible wall that would insulate them from your stupidity if there was some sort of crash?

    I don't think you'll find that many people in support of street racing here, at least not the ones that know what they're talking about.

    Then don't participate in the thread? It's that easy man. Your close minded opinion isn't going to make a fucking difference what I think... get over it. :ugh:
     
  8. What is closed minded about saying streetracing is stupid? I think that ignoring the safety of yourselves and others and racing on the street because it's $20 to race on the track and "the trucker egged you on" is pretty closed minded. Why don't you grow up a bit. You have a nice car, and it would be a shame to see it become one with the back of some poor family's minivan.

    You post a thread with a video of you streetracing, what the fuck do you want people to say; congratulations? Are people only allowed to participate if they think that it's a good idea to drive like an idiot and endanger innocent people? Oh, I forgot, it's $20 and 2 hours to race on a track.

    You live a lonely life? Church on sundays etc?

  10. Nope. I spent last sunday racing AT A TRACK.

    If your loacation is Palmetto, that means that Road Atlanta is LESS THAN 1.5 hours away. You have a world class track 1.5 hours away from you. Don't give me any fucking excuses about not racing at a track.

    EDIT: It turns out that Atlanta Motor Speedway, which has drag racing, is only 45 minutes from Palmetto. I find it hard to believe that you have never come to know this before now.

    Atlanta motor runs around 2-3 months out of the year. On friday nights. You are lucky to get one pass in out of a 4 hour span.

    Go preach somewhere else man seriously.
     
  12. Excuses, excuses, excuses.

    "Preaching" against streetracing. I must be some kind of nut.

    You're both right, he shouldn't care that you do what many people needlessly do everyday - and you shouldn't assume anyone cares how fast your car is from a roll against a SRT-4.
    yet, Market has logic on his side of the argument while you have opinion

    That SS had to have more done to it if it beat out a "12 second neon." Stall, gears besides the factory 3.23's?

    Not really. The SS is 12 second capable as it sits. Intake / Exhaust / MAF... and it puts down around 325. With a tire it would go 12's... otherwise low 13's. The neon will do 13's on street tires... with a good set of drags I suspect it'd hit 12's. The GTO is a decent bit faster than both.
