Street Driving???????????????

Hi again,

Sorry to upset you Laminge!

Just trying to create an informative thread on vehicles and performance on the street! Maybe racing was the wrong word to use? Anyway you have shut a thread with many views and one which people have lots of opinions about! Why not shut it after one thread - nothings changed?

Once again sorry to upset you!

Tim

I stand behind Laminge 100% Street racing aint the way to go......
For i promise you 1 day you will screw up & the unfortunate party will the the innocent person or even "FAMILY" you have just wiped out...
But laminge most of the replies are about what can blow ayway what with no real innuendo on "Go out & do it"
Most of these are personal recolections on Stoopid things we might have done, not going to do..
How bout re-opening the thread?? Or do we just start a new one???
p.s. im not trying to pi$$ you off either just trying to keep an open perspective

Hi,

Again I also agree - street racing = bad! I don't go to street races and don't go looking for them! This was poorly worded from start - my fault! However thread had some entertaining comments for those of us interested in on road performance. I was particularly after info. on performance of new xr's te50's etc. against other vehicles such as commys, wrex etc but found the comments on the older vehicles worthy of reading!

Thanks
Tim

street racing is definitely a bad thing, no doubt about that. there's only one problem, most of us, if not all, have done it. why turn a blind eye and ignore it?

my 2 opinionated cents

Dont appologise mate.,

Your views are important and I beleive the thread should have run its life, I am dead against street racing, though i dont mind the odd cruise, I have seen what an impact of a car can do to a human being!

Racing should be kept to circuit work, it should be done in a well prepared car, it should have Ambos available!

Ok a quick drag at the lights is/may appear safe, but ask the mum and dad of a 8 year old girl how much fun it is, watching their daughter being buried!

I will leave this open, I have expressed my views, if it going to be another bragging thread, then I will close it and continue to close/delete all others!

I would hope that I would have at least 90% support!

Thumbs up

Ok laminge, I'm with you. Street racing is dangerous,unsafe,will get you in troubles sooner or later. I feel embarrassed because I was enthusiastic about that thread at the beginning. Though I still believe what Tim wanted is to compare how would the XR8 compares to other makes in normal driving conditions,right mate?

And I get the point, guys: if you wanna do street race, at least do it near a Hospital or something!Just joking ,ok, joking.
No seriously, this forum is a fine one and we'll keep talks like street racing in a private messages,if any.

Talking about street racing is fine.. doing it is another matter all together.
I have no problem with idle chatter about it however if things become too far testosterone filled then I'm with minge 100%. I too know the sad effects of car fatalities.. It certainly isn't pleasant..
