Since no one else is saying it, I will...
ALL street racing is STUPID and so are the drivers who engage in it.
There's nothing 'special' in being a certain age or having more driving experience, or "knowing your limits." Gee... When you smash yourself up or kill a pedestrian or take out an uninvolved vehicle or the idiot you're racing - I guess that's the LIMIT, eh?! If ya didn't know for sure before that - you'll know after it happens.
Too many variables - residential, highway, rural, wherever.
Take it to the track, people... Give the rest of us who may not move outta yer dang way fast enough - a flippin' break.
