    no street racing for me, i use a spool and it is too dangerous to
    get control on a street, they make D.O.T. slicks that grab pretty
    good, but street racing is asking for trouble, here in tx, they take
    your car away, put you in jail for a while, fine you, and take
    your license away for 5 yrs, if you kill someone, you live
    in jail and when you come out (if you come out) you don't drive
    anymore :cry:

    You have come to the wrong site to get information on this.We don't promote these type of races here at Racing Junk.

    Its just to dangerous and risky for the racers and spectators.Take it to the track and race your buddys,same deal but alot more better controlled safety enviroment

    Besides that street racing is ilegal,please don't confuse street racing with drag racing

    good answer tops, look at that car that was doing as exhibition
    burn out on the street which was closed down for burn outs and
    the car went out of control and killed a spectator, and this was
    a policed event, tops is right, take it to the strip, on test night
    10 bucks will let you go down the track til you blow :?

    I think youll be pleasently surprised when you take it to a well prepped track the first time, it should be so sticky that itll take your shoes off your feet if you try walking down the first 20' of the race track. Hell, I could spin em in my fiero on the street for a month (not racing) before I took it to the track and blew up my tranny launching at 2k rpm. Good Luck! tell us how you do!

    if thats not good enough... relocate the battery, ladder bars or 4-link, stickier tires, 90/10 shocks in front, any weight reduction that you can do, etc.
