So should cobaltss.com have a war stories section?
Your thoughts......

For those of you that may not know what this is.
It's a section where our members can come in and tell tales about what happened to them when they went out for a nice little quiet drive and ended up getting into a knock down drag out street race. What was happening at the time, what did you race, did you win, lose, giving props to the other guy, or just there to talk trash about them. We try to keep it as clean and/or truthful as possible but we'll just have to see about that.
Admins, Mods, get ready to rumble!!!!!1



I'm voting yes

War stories are sometimes funny, but on other forums, such as srtforums.com they just turned out shitty. Everyone bags on the warstories guys and all that happens is "My stock srt-4 walked an evo blah blah blah" then people calling them idiots and telling them to get a video of it.

I dont know about anyone else but I like to hear about what is going with people and their cobalts and other cars. Not too mention I plan on destroying a few people and wouldn't mind tellin the story.

Don't get me wrong, I love hearing about cars, Cobalts or others, BUT....

Most of the time 'street racing' is performed under unsafe conditions, and by drivers that aren't qualified to be attempting those speeds or maneuvers. I think you have to be real careful about encouraging that sort of thing. It's all fun and games till some kid loses it, and hits and kills someone.

If this section isn't created, people will just post it in another forum.

Exactly, it happens anyways this would just be a place to tell about it! Plus a lot of them will be drag strip races as well.

Yeah that will be were MOST of my races will be at. I try not to speed as it is and anymore threre are no places on the street that is safe. And there was one place that a bunch of my freind would race but it was not on the street's but behind a warehouse where there were no cops and no traffic.

I think that's pretty silly logic. People get raped sometimes despite our efforts, so we may as well just make it legal? People sell drugs anyway, so let's just legalize crack too?

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.

The entire Dodge SRT division is Street Racing Technology. Maybe they should change the name. Not trying to be an ass.

It's not so much as encouraging it but making it easier to have one place to collectively organize all the B.S.....I mean stories people have about racing. It's going to happen on a car enthusiast website regardless, so you either bann all the people that talk about it or put them all in one spot to try and contain it.

LOL but my car can do over 100mph. I know for a fact i did it wile i ws chaseing my freinds Del Sol we were doing like 115.
And one other time i was trying my hardest to keep up with mt freinds 5.0 but he would lose me in the strait but i could handle just as well as he could so i would catch up to him. But all of that is history for me all that was year and half ago and since then i have been being very good. LOL
