    Default Street racing with a bunch of show offs!

    I was at the gas station at Calgary NE last week and two guys just raced off at the green lights (I think those were a mustang and camaro)..... Has anyone done this?

    I am driving a G35 and once in a while I'd have acura/honda/mazda drivers just trying to tease me to race on the streets. I have never give in... I just find it very irresponsible. I just think it's really stupid and very immature. I didn't buy a g35 to race or to show off. I just like the car and love driving it. Same way as I admire the integras, preludes, rx7/8, 240sx, m3s, and so on so on....

    Anyways, I hope we all stay safe on the streets. Let's all enjoy our rides and don't be stupid behind the wheels. Let's not be jerks behind our rides...

    I think you start to feel more like this the older you get. I'm now 26 and am feeling more like you each year that goes by. I still let my testosterone get the better of me sometimes.
    Several studies have investigated the relationship between intelligence and the degree of religious belief (excluding humanism), with most showing an inverse correlation between intelligence averages and the "importance of religion" to the testee.

    The g35 is a real looker, not a drag car, I wouldn't humor the civs with fart cans by ripping the car.

    Yes, although I am pretty young myself, a couple friends of my neighbours are always pumping their music really loud, spinning tires, reving, probably around 1am...in the middle of VARSITY?!?!? I live in a cul-de-sac and they must be tring to drift the corners in their kitted del sol or something and it's REALLY annoying!!

    I wish everyone was as mature as you.

    well i'm 17 and even though i like to drive faster than most cars on the road i know when to slow down and not race. hence crowded streets, narrow roads, residental streets etc. Don't get me wrong i am young and dumb so i fall for those acuras/hondas/mazdas teasing me but only at night.

    How much is it to take your car to the track for a night of racing?

    Yea I agree I was never someone doing stupid shit on the roads (minus a couple stupid things) but as you get older you get smarter about how things work in the real world, I have been toyed with alot on the road but haven't given in, now I just plan on getting a helmet and getting into autocross.

    But its how it is with age,

    16 - Your the best driver in the world and your invincable.

    19 - You still drive crazy now and then, but you start to realise your mortal and can be hurt BAD, you also noticed a speed sign for the first time.

    22 - You drive fairly normal and you respect other drivers, you realise that the 16 year olds are pretty stupid alot of the time.

    25 - Those 16 year olds REALLY are starting to piss you off, and you now stick to the speedlimit most the time.

    30+ - Your now a respectable driver.

    50+ - You start to get abit worried about other cars and always stick to the speedlimit or being under it.

    65+ - You get overtaken alot and have trouble remembering what driving is.

    75+ - Your now a threat to the safety of others and yourself, you now stick to a strick speedlimit of driving 30 UNDER the limit.

    85+ - Dear Lord SAVE US.

    I drive like a normal person most of the time. There is an odd red light dash here and there, gotta keep working the gaskets so they don't seize up

    What pisses me off is the fact that people in Calgary are clueless when it comes to driving Etiquette. When you're going 95km/h in the far left lane on Deerfoot you will get some dirty looks. People turning left going into the far right lane accross 4 lanes of traffic. etc etc. This stuff is bugging me more and more every day.

    hey whats up guys, i agree with most of you. I'm 17 years old, and i like to go fast, but i keep it to the track. I would never race ANYONE in th city, not on these streets. The only way i would ever feel comfortable racing in a city was if it was in italy or france, and in the middle of the night with no traffic. The streets are WAY better there, whereas here, the governement feels they need to spend less money on our roads so they can spend over $320 000 in travelling for the MLA's.
