Default Quick question to admins

i saw that on the "On The Road & At The Track" section, it is strictly prohibited to discuss street racing. Does that mean that street racing cannot be discussed at all on the entire site? i just want to know, before i attempt to post something i'm not supposed to

thanks.

I believe so, because this could potentially cause some cross-forum flaming.

Coming from 1 of 3 admins, the answer quite easily (as mentioned) is yes.

So stories about going 120+ miles an hour on public roads are fine but as long as you are not racing another car on the side of you? I only ask cause so many of us though we dont admit it have done the red light mini races just to see if we still had it. I guess thats still street racing sort of?

You risk your own liscence when posting something like that. You better damn well believe that cops look for street racers on forums. They WILL hunt you down. Dont even risk it, even if you think theres a minimal chance.

Its also prohibited on the forum becuase anyone who reads it is now in danger becuase they knew about it and didnt report.
