    well last night i was driving up to see my girl at work..and i pull up to a twin turbo 3000gt. while my car is alright (73 plymouth 318, 360 heads, cam etc etc) im sure his was faster

    he left the light hard...so i did to. i haven't raced a car before.
    at least illegaly.
    he was ahead (which may have saved me)
    well we were going pretty well around 100 mph at least

    well i pulled out because i passed my girls work.
    and as soon as i turn into the parking lot a cop flies by with his lights on...im having a heart attack here..i could lose my car, everything

    so then i go across the street and park for maybe 10 mins. then i see another cop pass by. well i decide its time for me to sneak home...another town over and about 15 mins away.
    so i go the back way..pass two cops and park on the side of my house. im not going to drive for awhile.

    anyone else have a story like this?

    Here in Texas they just increased the penalties for street-racing. If you're convicted once you lose your license for a year. Twice it becomes a class A misdemeanor (which is pretty serious realy and can affect you in other areas). If you're convicted a third time it becomes a felony and now we're talking serious.

    edit: Not that losing your license for a year or a class A misdemeanor AREN'T serious!

    In California, it's illegal to even watch a street race. Even being present during one is grounds for over $1000 in fines.

    Do you ever have anything useful or even positive to post?

    On topic,

    Yeah, I have a story like this.

    So one night 2 years ago, me and a friend were out about 12:30 after a high school football game. He had a sports car, '93 Honda Prelude. We were in a 55 mph zone on an old highway that nobody's ever on that late. So he says, "Want to go fast?" and I say, "yes." So he slams the shift knob into 3rd and gets up to 80. "Faster?" he says. "Yes" I say. So he puts it into 4th and gets up to 105. "Faster?" "Yes" I say. 5th gear, 115. We stay up there for a few seconds and he drops it back down to 60.

    Looking back, it was one of the most stupid things I have ever done. If there'd been a car on that road I'd be dead now. After that I vowed not to do stupid things in cars ever again.

    I seem to remember in one of your previous posts that your car runs 10.50's.
    Was the Mitsu really faster or did he catch you snoozin at the light?




    Or does your car really not run 10.50's?

    If the 3000GT got the hit, I suppose it could go that way, and if it was a VR-4, those things are hella fast.
     

  20. yeah, that would be one bitchin fast mitsubishi!

    i have a few friends that are into the car tuning scene and one of them has a civic SI with the works (NOS and all that stuff) and everyone always talks about how fast he is and he runs like 12 something secs usually*

    (they do NOT street race, there is a big time dragstrip in the next town and they go there sometimes for the open nights or whatever)
