Post your kills

Race wise that is, and dont preach about how its wrong blah blah you all do it at some point. Mine so far

While stock:

RSX-s with boltons
from a dig
miata got 1 car length ahead at launch, was passed halfway into 5th

Infiniti I30
from a dig
miata bogged launch BAD (almost stalled), passed easily getting into 4th

vs. 05ish 3-series bmw coupe stick
dead even..he was pulling away when i had to shift and vise versa, in the end it was too close to call

vs. ek civic coupe stick
needless to say I put a bus on him by the time I was through 1st gear and I didnt bother further.

vs 98ish hyundai tiburon turbo

He was about 5 cars behind me when he got on it, when i saw him coming up on me I got on it as well (while being in 4th gear at 40mph)...at 80 or so I was still 1/2 a car ahead..he had compressor surge if it matters

98 maxima auto with intake, exhaust, y-pipe
did 3 runs
Run 1 from a dig: gave him a slight headstart, passed hard going into 5th
Run 2 from a roll: (40mph i think) instantly flew ahead 1-2 cars and was steadily gaining
Run 3 from a dig: was dead even until I missed 3rd gear


With Intake and raised boost:

New Si coupe
beat by 5 lengths until 80 and let off

MK4 GTI VR6 with exhaust
from a dig
beat by about 2 lengths to 60
best part of this one was his girlfriend who was in the car with him made fun of him for losing to a miata

Subaru Legacy??
20-70ish
beat by...2 cars?? dont remember i had to make a turn dude tried to give me a flyby and got denied

I don't. I'd much rather keep my licence and leave the road racing to the knobs who think they're really fast.

I don't really race, but when I'm out with friends or something, I'll try to beat them to wherever we're going (it's usually at night) without doing anything too illegal lol


In the Sentra
Raced a bone-stock Altima about 5 miles, it was mostly straight, only two turns and I couldn't keep up. I was flooring it and he still flew by me. In my defense, I was driving one more person lol.

Against a 2003 Mazda 323 - That car is so much more powerful than my Nissan


In the Caravan
Raced a Rendezvous from Burger King to school. We weren't really speeding by a lot, but when I pulled ahead my friend thinks it would be funny to yell out COPS so I slam on the brakes and fall way behind. I took a shortcut though, and it was pretty much a tie.

Street racing iz koooool to tha max. I live my life a 1/4 mile at a time as well!

Seeing somebody on an open highway to race is one thing (stupid, but nonetheless), but going out and looking for trouble is another.

Old enough to vote and still a worthless little sh*t stain. The only people childish enough to go looking for "kills", and then stupid enough to post them on a forum, are doing everything they can to make up for deficiencies elsewhere. Yes, your boyfriend posted your shortcoming in another thread.

Street "racing" is for pussies, and for those who don't want to find out their 12 second car is actually a 17 second car... In other words, idiots like you. You aren't racing, far from it. You're out endangering innocent citizens because you're not man enough to do it the right way.

Grow up Twinkie.

Only 1 problem..

Its not really all that hard 2 beat some cars in a "street race" rather than at the track. For instance I have a 95 z28 convertible which sits right at a little over 300 horsepower (and no this may not be exact i have yet 2 dyno it) and a friend of mine has a 96 cobra svt with i think its a t56 or 66 supercharger i cant remember he just got it and its got 475 horsepower and i know this 4 a fact cus we just went 2 the dyno with it. But anyway i being a chevy guy got cocky and was messing around and he got me 2 race him. The road was a good 1/4 mile and i beat him by a good 5 car lengths. But be4 yall start saying no way here is my point. Racing outside the track is different cus of the traction ur tires get at the track opposed 2 off the track. Cus during our street race my friend spun through 2nd gear and me having a camaro which are great off the line i was halfway down the road be 4 he started actually getting anywhere. But then we went 2 the track and his car caught traction and as i deserved he waxed my ass which im not sad at all cus i put alot of work in his car with him So this is why i believe this thread on "killing cars" in street races is pointless cus everything is different at the track

Yes but I spend most of my time driving on the street...in fact ive never drag raced my car at the track nor do I plan on it because numbers from the track dont always translate to the street. My friend ran a 14.1 on the track with his camaro, on the street he kept up with another camaro that ran 13.3 on a different day at the same track. Its not to say I don't support legal racing, but I think drag racing is stupid anyway, and if I do want to see who's car is quicker, its much easier for me to find an empty road away from traffic rather than lug ass all the way to the track in the neighboring state just to find out that that day they are having issues with the light, or some ****tard brought out a POS car and left a spill at the starting line...the one time I did want to go to the track with a bunch of friends they shut the whole thing down because the forecast called for POSSIBLE RAIN!

To me, street performance is more important than track performance, the track is a good place to learn, and I do support auto-x racing to improve driver skill rather than noob dodging traffic in rush hour to learn distance perception and braking distance and such.

Cliff notes: I don't care about 1/4 mile numbers because in real life they mean absolutely

Yea, for some reason driving an hour to a dragstrip when I have local places to go to that are safe for racing doesnt appeal to me, call it how you want it. I'm sure I will go to the track eventually, but not for drag racing...road race yes, auto-x yes.

First your friends 14 second camaro didnt get faster on the street, the 13.3 second camaro got slower. Or possibly those few tenths were unnoticable without a timer. that isnt much time.

Second 1/4 times may mean shit unless you are paid to race but so are dang near all perfromance numbers. You think your autocross numbers mean something? No they dont.

And dont act high and mighty about how autocrossing is harder and it has more to do with the driver blah blah blah. Real drag racing isnt easy. People think its easy because of the dumbass ricers who take their 115hp civics to the strip and run a whopping 17 seconds. Drag racing a fast car is hard.

Its the same in autocross, autocrossing a bicycle would be easy cause its ****ing slow.

It all depends on what you're looking for out of the race. If you want a straight line with no margin for error because it's over in under 15seconds or goto a circle track where if one lap you miss a shift or spin the tires you have a chance to catch up in the laps following.
Racing is a challenge whether it's on the strip, circle track, or from a red light on main st. That's why people race after all.
