It's funny how a lot of the V6 owners think they are so cool and fast, and a lot of them have the ricer attitude. It's so funny because I get challenged almost on a daily basis, but I just look at them and laugh or shake my head and keep on driving.
Yes, street racing is stupid, yes, I have done it. Twice. Both times there were no other cars at all in either direction, one time it was a Challenger RT, the other a Civic hatchback. The RT we just did a few pulls for fun. The Civic was legitimately trying to race me, at first I was like "eh, whatever" but when he was two car lengths ahead I floored it and passed him almost instantly, he couldn't keep up and I eased off when I was about 4 lengths ahead of him. He wanted to go again and I turned him down.
Anyway, it was stupid of me, and I took a chance and was lucky not to get caught. I have promised myself to never street race again, and next time I will take my car to the track. I have yet to get pulled over, but as far as I am concerned I am not doing anything illegal at all in traffic. I just cannot afford raised insurance rates and paying tickets, besides I want to keep my driving records clean.
Stay safe, follow the laws, and take it to the track when you want to race. Paying a few bucks to race at the track is worth it, compared to all the lives one put in danger by street racing.
