racer driving style

i know its bad to race on the streets but say you wanna drive like a racer on the streets how would you be driving? downshifting alot to get around cars? keep the rpms high and keep the gears low to accelerate faster? what is teh definition of a driver that drives like a racer?

If you start off at a stop light do the heel-toe move. With your heel on the accelerator and it is a manuel, try to keep it at 4000 to 5000 rpm with your other foot on the clutch to keep it from moving. With your toe on the brake the car won't move if it is in nuetral. Then when the light turns green you shift into first and floor it.

double clutching and high revs, plus chirping the tires at every possibility. and as for traffic avoiding it altogether is the key. race on the highway if possibe, just start at an on ramp and go to the next exit

Learn how to "performance" drive and you won't have to learn how to act like you do.

In most cases that definition would be an idiot in a car that's mostly show and not alot of GO
