hey why not just trade those si in on yugos there light adn fast . heck vtec is useless anyway if you use it you are prety much braking the law. Com on yes there things happen and it is unfortunate but let's not get over the to . and live in a buble becasue you are afraid to cut a bagle with a knife then bleed to death.

yes racing is dumb but so is drinking and smokin and coca cola. It all has something in comon risk. some bigger obviousley than others. like guns and cars vs eating a bagel.

Live it up a litle but know when to quit when it comes to a certain point. I really fell bad for this person. Im sure most people on this forum have pushed their car to over 100mph.. so therefcore if you had a accident you should be made fun of I think not. but if you live you have braging right and everyone on this forum cheering you on how cool it is going so fast.

If you never push you si or whatever that hard at least on ocassion then you are just driving to home and work trade her in and let somebody that is gonna use it properly a chance to buy it. You just have it to be a poser might as well just keep it in the garge and drive it to churh on sunday brag how fast it is and never puch the thing what a waste of engineering and time.

And nowandays I see alot of that crap going on guys buying evos and sti etc and telling me they never hit 80mph or took a corner where the car udersteers or feels like its getting pused hard they baby it what a waste. If thats how they drive just go buy a lexus or audi they are great for souless drivers.

There are rules to street racing and I will say what the kid die was dumb but has been done may times by young and old drivers alike. There are several rules to live by if you are gonna take a risk on the road
1. I s dont race pushing the car solo is different and doing it on familiar roads is also a plus. when racing a person if you do not do this often you wann push harder till you overcome the fear of death and that's where the problems raise up a few notches.

2. If you are crazy enough to race late apex everything. It is not the fastes way but it is safer and makes for room with error.

3. No racing in high traffic areas. It;s to riskey or on city streets take out on open roads.

4. know when to stop

5. do some track driving and get to know your car and how it reaponds to things before you even decide to sole drive and push the thing.

6. dont be an idiot take stupid risks winning is not worth your lifeknow your limiits and stey well under them and if you are making sobody look bad just stop becsue they may do something dumb and get hurt by being competetive.

This is the selfish attitude I was talking about, only thinking about the risk to self, not others.

I have an MA in English Literature (1964). Always worked in IT, of course, even before I graduated. Geek genes will always triumph. Think 1964.

Strange question for the middle of a thread, but what the hell... it's late and I'm bored.

Sorry, I forgot. There should be places in every town where the street racers could test each other -- with supervision. Despite our flip attitude, I suspect that, if the pigs gave up a roadway with no traffic, supervision, the racer boyz would go to that street. I would. Tomorrow night. Stock. Just to show Glenda off.

Sadly, the one who paid the price was the poor bastard trying to help out, after a couple of motorcycle Racer Boyzzzz showed their "Racerz Skilzzzzz" weren't up to the task:

Police said a 2003 Honda motorcycle driven by Vincent M. Soprano, 23, of Orlando and a 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle driven by Steven Scott Sabo, 28, of Red Oak, Iowa, were cutting in and out of traffic when the Honda closed in on a car changing lanes.

To avoid the car, the Honda's driver swerved, lost control and hit the pavement. A 2001 Lexus driven by Tim Martinov, 25, of Oviedo stopped before hitting the motorcyclist, but was struck by a 1988 Toyota driven by Andrey Sotnik, 17, of Orlando.
