I know those are a lot more serious, but it's the exact same logic. For the record, I belong to several other forums that don't want to promote street racing. When someone posts about it, they're kindly advised that that type of thing isn't approved of there, and to take it to the track.

I dunno. Obviously not everyone agrees with me, and that's fine. I'm just trying to provide a different viewpoint. Instead of encouraging street racing, I think you can encourage people to take it to the track, and race in the safe & proper way.
Are you trying to say you never get in a tussle on the streets Z06 man? I say go for it on the war stories. You can't stop what can't be stopped!!

i vote no. street racing is not cool. this section in other forums always turn out ugly and most people lie about their encounters. it will most likely get passed so you will find out eventually.

Street racing is not my thing, I don't have the right to put others at risk, but go ahead, promote it on the forum.

May I also suggest a "Man! Was I ever wasted on the way home last night!" forum. It would be just as good to hear about how someone nearly killed some kids on a corner or sideswiped a car and took off.

Action, drama, the thrill of illegal behavior.

Before you laugh it off, I would bet a considerable pile of money that more people are hurt/killed (as a percentage of the number of races) because of street racers than by drunk drivers (percentage of drunk drivers).

Almost all of you will grow up and regret racing eventually, so go ahead and mock me. I truly hope you never hurt somebody else and have to live with it.

Someday, you will know I was right. When you grow up, I look forward to running with you on the track.

i agree w/ you 100%.

instead of making a section about ILLEGAL street racing why not make one for LEGAL track discussion? once you grow up and go past your F&F stage you will see that tracks are alot more fun and safer.

It's nice to join an association like NASA so you can race and go as fast as you want and not worry about injuring innocent people and looking out for cops. NASA does things such as Auto-X and Time Trials and HPDE where you can drive on courses like Road Atlanta, VIR, Laguna Seca, yall should check it out Sometime. http://www.nasaproracing.com

I say yes because every forum should have one. It creates more traffic.

Plus, we wouldn't want our 'oh so lovely' mods to just sit back and post whore all day, would we? Lets make them work and keep the war stories section in order!!!!

LOLOLOL!!!
