My Dad flew A-4s in the Navy, during Vietnam. He said flying wasn't dangerous. It was just *really* unforgiving of mistakes.

Street racing seems like that. One mistake and it's "Car vs. telephone pole" and frequently, the paramedics are calling it in as an "unrestrained" driver/passenger.
i dont dispute your G factor claims. i was simply stating that the record for pulling Gs with SURVIVAL is somewhere between 11 and 12. (11.6 if im not mistaken) it is scientifically proven that no persons body can withstand more than 12, even with G force training. your organs will begin to rupture, your heart will begin to rip from its muscle mounted point in your chest, taking the aorta along with it...etc. i know that pilots pull 9 and 10 from time to time, and that if they dont do it right they can be seriously injured or killed. i simply stated what i did above to show to those who street race what kind of forces they are up against should they crash, and that at speeds of 100 mph, the g forces are double what it takes to kill you. a 60 mph impact into a 0 mph moving object is around 11 and will kill 99% of the people involved. i was also trying to show how it is virtually impossible to stop if your doing 120 and something gets in your way. leading to the point of why speed like that needs to be done on a track.
