Default Why is it?

Why is it people brag bout beating cars that arent worth bragging about. Like people that beat civcs, or any other car that has a small displacement and four cylinders. I would hope so that they could beat them by at least 5 car lengths. Im glad to hear your willing to risk killin yourself or other people just so you can brag bout it. It would be nice if people can post about a race about a car that can be some comp. wether it was won or lost. Sorry just had to vent, and Im pretty sure this will probably **** some people off.

A race is a race no matter what the competition may be. As long as both drivers are aware of what they are doing it shouldn't matter who'* driving what. But that doesn't mean that there stories are necessarily something to brag about either.

Okay man..when bragging about beating a civic..for the most part it is a riced out civic driven by a retard that thinks his car is god..so when you rip him a new ***, its a good feeling ..cuz we are in family cars..ya know? Duh we'd beat a "stock" civic by 5 car lengths..

Thats true but, when there isnt a rev to start with or any other type of communication whatever it may be, how can it really be called a race. I take off fast at the lights and then eventually let up, Im not racing anybody thats just how I do it. From time to time I do get idiots that thing I am trying to race by flippin on their hazards or tappin their brakes. I dont think there has been to many posts about poeple racing against Maxima'*, S2000'*, GTP/X'*, T/A'*, Mustangs (V8'sof course) or anybody else that would be competition without a doubt if not no competition what so ever. If you know your gonna kill em, why not just laugh and save the gas cuz you know youll smoke em anyways. Cuz in all reality is that feelin you were talkin bout really worth gettin somebody killed, losin your liscense, car, and god knows what esle that goes along with it. Cuz if the kid is that big of an idiot to try and race somethin thatll hand him his *** how good of a driver can he really be?

Were you trying to **** anyone off?

Whether you are racing a Honda Civic or a Viper, you are still risking your life and those of others while street racing, and one being a "better car" isn't going to make either race Ok.
Maybe your preception is just different from other'*...chances are they view it as "sharing info" about that riced otu civic they smoked last night, and you could be viewing it as 'bragging.' Just a gap in communication, possibly.

I just like stompin on riced out Mishi'* and Neon'*, (no Civic'* around here), cause while cruisin they got ther big amp system goin and fart cans farting, and it'* just a good feeling when you do get a chance to race em you stomp ther [email protected]@. If that'* call bragging then so be it, I'm a bragger and proud of it. Even tho we have family cars with balls, why not show it off. I do the same thing on the stop lights, rev my engine out and lay off, but whop de do, Anyone can do that, but if thers a car wanting to gun it with you, do you just let them by, heck no you floor it and get a scent of satisfaction. Even if I loose. I really don't see how we are trying to kill ourselves or risking them, cause I don't race into triple digits, and I race on the highway in town which I will only hit 60 in the 35. Who knows why we race this way, or why do people drive drunk or pro' race car drivers race? I guess I will get to the point, I LOVE STREET RACING AND ALLWAYS WILL. Man, thats a ton off my mind.

Well.. it'* true that racing on street is dangerous.. but then again.. so is jay walkin.. so is smokin.. so is breathing the Smogy outdoor air. I do agree and most of the time I will refuse to race a Rice since I know I can easily hand them their ***.. and some have tried by intimidating me ( Reving engine and pointin to go ahead and all ) till they see the Suoercharged SSEI badgin then it becomes never mind.. and they drive slow off the line like a scalded dog with thier tails between their legs.. but then you get those like mentioned before that they think they're all that and a bag of crack cause they've watched Fast and the Furious 600 times that they're car with a wing and fart coffee can exhaust along with those power robbing I mean increasing decals all over that they can beat everthing. hahaha.. times like that you have to put them at their place.. kinda like how you would put a hyper active dog shittin and pissin all over the place to their place.. I"ve raced a Corvetter late 90'* up model.. and I thought he was going to hand my *** on the highway.. but the idiot miss shifted a few times a free reved the motor and all.. and I was in the lead all the time through on the highway till the governor kicked in.. but by that time.. he was branchin off to another highway. so in a nutshell.. I've technically beat a corvette with my SSEI stock.. so would it be ok to brag then? Even though I"ve put everyone around me in danger? and I was doing triple digits in miles hee hee.. don't mean to sound like I"m giving you crap ( I'm not to anyone.. I"m easy to get along with.. but give my 2 cents everywhere ).. just simply being objective and it seems kinda strange to say.. don't race limp crippled Rice cars cause it will cause you to blah blah blah.. save the whale.. this and that.. but it'* ok to put all the dangers on when it'* racing a worthy competitor? hee hee.. kinda hypocritical. I think MEN and some women have the need for speed and to race since the days of horse and chariots.. it'* in the human nature.. don't deny it.. just embrace it and learn when not to do it ( like rush hour and in residential area and around schools and don't tailgate or instigate people with the sign BABIES ON BOARD .. that'* a real pet peave ).. ok.. now I"ve done my fair share of ranting and raving on this topic.. back to watchin South Park and Jerry Springer..hahaha

I've played patty cake with a 2000 Maxima on I-95. Let me tell you, it was easy. That 3.5 V6 has to rev too high, just like the other Japanese engine do, to make anything helpful. It was too easy to lead him up 95 like a puppy. Tha'* why I don't race them. S2000 are nothing more that new Preludes, no matter what the nerds driving them say. I hosed one in Ocean City, MD last summer WHEN MY UPPER WAS LEAKING!!! The guy was talking sh#t at a putt-putt course, so I called him out. He lost by 2 cars.

I don't post all my races here; I try not to brag too much. But it does happen.

No I wasnt tryin to **** poeple off by starting this thread, but after awhile how exciting can it get for readin bout stompin another riced out whatever. But as always to each his own. I was just venting cuz with some of these stories are gettin old and others sound like a tall tale, but there are some that sound it was a good race. Complinitor what are your times, must be well into the low 14'* high 13'*.
