Do you street race /o/? Ever gotten caught? Part of an actual club or just do stoplight/highway pulls against randos?
I've never owned a car with more than 160hp, so no.
I'd have no interest in driving straight lines anyway. If I move to Vancouver Island I'll gladly race anyone on the touge once I have my Evo.
Stoplight to speed limit mostly.
I've got an mr2 spyder, so I'll usually pull ahead of turbofags and then tap my brakes. People get so mad. Best thing is ignoring rematches, because I know I'll lose from a roll
>be driving around city, bored

>he does a flyby as the light turns green
>too busy cleaning panties to do anything but follow at 25 mph
I was in my 500 and had a guy in an HHR next to me actually rev several times at a red light. Figuring it was a goof, I put my foot into it when the light changed and he couldn't keep up. Same shit at the next light. I can only imagine how ridiculous it looked if anyone saw it. Not to mention how bad the HHR guy must have felt losing to a slow ass 500.

>blaming something that's wrong with the car on the drivetrain
well i can fix a lot of things, but i can't fix people.
I was racing my friend Turbo Tegra and we flew past a cop at 125 in a 45.
My friend stopped I kept going.
He got a super speeder, liscence spended for 6 months, luckily they didn't give him a street racing ticket.
I helped pay his ticket and gave him rides to school and work.
so are you saying that it would be faster and able to turn if it was just RWD or AWD?
why is this a meme?
top speed is a good indicator of a car.
off-topic, I try to keep my verbs concerning speed separate.
Fast is top speed, any car can be fast, some are faster than others.
Quickness is 0-60, or 0-100 if we want to get really competitive. Not every car is quick, but most can be made quicker.
I mean, that's all anyone here talks about. That RWD and AWD always handle better.
I'm just down in the dumps because people shit on my car, and there was just a big thread on here shitting all over it.
it a 45, but it connects to pretty much everywhere.
disappearing on it is pretty damn easy actually.
I have a galant vr4 with a 6g72 tt. Makes 560awhp on e85
Got a 25 gallon fuel cell in the trunk.
I rip my plates off every saturday night and go get cops to chase me by doing donuts in intersections, speeding, etc. Takes a hot minute to get away cause the tauruses cant turn for shit.
Racing has never really been exciting to me. Running from the cops gives me the adrenaline rush i seek. It's wearing off now after a half year of doing it. I kinda wanna get a 50gal cell , lift her 3 inches and throw on some thick ass tires and do a multi-state chase.
I drive pic related. It's completely stock but it's still pretty fast. It's my Daily Driver though I'm not really trying to race but when someone challenges me at the red light I just have to smash.
I believe it. I once race a state trooper by accident. The car didn't have the top light bar just the side decals. Didn't notice until I made the turn. Had to clean panties afterwards.
Every now and then I'll see another 3S and get my ass handed to me at red lights and whatnot, but every now and then some ricer fag will want to race my "viper." Idunno why people think my stealth looks like a viper at all. I completely walked on a SW20 once and that was pretty refreshing
My buddies and I sneak in to old automobile plants and race there. This one had all the buildings demolished and is now a massive slab of concrete
I fucking love my sho. Best $900 ever spent.
I accidentally raced a cop once too
>visiting some friends in Chicago
>on our way back to the Indiana side of the border after buying a set of evo mr bad wheels
>red charger with tinted windows merges behind us onto the highway
>looks like he picking up some speed catching up to us
>meanwhile my friend keeps telling me "he has the look"
>he gets along side me and I downshift at him for fun
>looks like he starts to accelerate so I gun it to the top of third
I honestly couldn't tell you if he was going flatout too or just screwing with me, but my friends seemed pretty convinced he was racing me, anyways
>2 pulls later as he's rolling up to me I see his passenger window is down
>I unroll my window and look over assuming he's gonna give me the thumbs up or flip me off or whatever
>nope, he's holding up a badge and I'm now shitting bricks
>let off the gas and he cruises on by me
>we take the next exit for Indiana
I'm not from around the area so I'm not really sure what happened but it makes kind of a cool story
>be driving home at ~3am on a weekday
>down a 2 lane road in ye olde camaro
>10-15 over to pass a taxi
>suddenly notice bright lights in rearview right up on my ass
>swing over to other lane as soon as I pass taxi

Hey I am from NW Indiana and we have a shitload of undercovers. Mostly in new mustangs. They go around trying to get you tor ace them so they can pull you over. Land of the free.
There was a notorious speed trap on my way to work on 141 north. There was a stoplight, and after that there was a subdivision entrance where a cop always sat behind the sign. When I would drive my SRT to work, every once in a while, some fag would pull up next to me at the stoplight before the subdivision and rev his engine. I would always rev it back, and when the light turned green amble forward while the guy in the other lane would floor it. Three or four of those guys got caught be the cops.
I don't ever drag race on the street, it's dangerous, illegal, and it proves nothing.
Time and patience. It's alot of labor. If you want your tires to shine like that expect to scrub those fuckers for a good 30-40 minutes. I use generic wax from auto zone. It's really nothing too special detailing your own car just give it TLC and keep it clean.
you guys ever had normies chase you trying to 'catch you?' to lecture you
>eating with friend
>finishing up he wants to go have ride around more
>we go to curvy road in our cars
>2 lane road
>truck in the right side doing speed limit
>we come up behind them
>normie in a maxima notices us coming by and blocks left passing lane
>after like 1 mile of them going the same speed truck pulls into driveway
>downshift and pass them on the right
>friend was behind me and the retarded maxima swerved to the right as he was about to pass and brake checked him
>friend passes on the left
>after this the maxima is fucking flooring it to keep up with us
>we take off doing like 30 over
>we're in one lane in a row
>can still see the maxima following us
>eventually lose their lights
>stop light at 1/2 way point
>friend and I come to stop next to each other
>'wtf was his problem'
>see his lights coming up behind us fast as fuck
>comes skidding to a stop full abs behind friend
>legit thought he was going to hit him
>he gets out of his car yelling
>'YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO HURT SOMEONE DRIVING LIKE THAT I HAVE A FAMILY IN THE CAR-'
>light turns green and we take off
>car behind him starts honking before he's in car
>he goes off on them next
That's entrapment everywhere. If you can prove it, you won't get a ticket and the cops get in big trouble.
I've raced a few times, mostly in HS. We always knew the outcome because it was racing my GTO against a 91 Chevy Pickup or a 94 S10. All completely stock.
>driving around at night with friends
>1967 Jeepster Commando, 3 speed, Buick V6
>see guy in fully restored Willy's Jeep
>pull up next to him, start talking
>11pm, no one else around
>friend challenges him to race
>start revving, dump clutch on 3
>burnout, go into 2nd
>race over since there was a stop sign and turn
>beat him by probably 2 car lengths
That was the slowest drag race ever. By the end, I was going probably 30
some people, I swear.
>it doesnt even have monster stickers or a spoiler which will give me a 50hp boost xDD
found your car kid
this the sho you raced?
eh sure it'd handle togue just fine. it may weigh 1000lbs more that your burner, but it has 80 more NA horsepower, as well as an ever so slightly higher power to weight. SHO definitely handles much better than grandmas car you're thinking of
Lmao this guy right here actually thinks some fucking americuck fwd is better than precisely engineered Japanese technology. Honda makes the fastest front wheel drive on the market. What the fuck is a Taurus? Literally what car is that, what a joke dude.
B16 civics are super sports cars. B18 civic is a super car.
>precisely engineered Japanese technology
>Honda makes the fastest front wheel drive on the market
>B16 civics are super sports cars
>B18 civic is a super car
well long as you're happy, personally would rather have something unique over any poser honda. Everyone knows a skyline is a true work of Japanese art
Honda does make the fastest fwd, pal. Guess you've never heard of Type R. I bet you wouldn't buy an NSX either because ''hurr poser honda''
Face it there are ecoboxes civics and there are eco-tougemonster civics. Those are the b16 and b18. You shouldn't be ashamed when a civic overtakes you, they have superior engineering behind them fueled by years of motorsports.
Course an NSX isnt a poser, whats poser are the civics everybody ruin.
>superior engineering behind them fueled by years of motorsports
what is Yamaha? lol hell it has a mazda transmission as well as the same team behind the svt cobra too.
Now at least tell me you dont have the stupid wing/ fart cannon poser pack as well
that explains everything, sorry bro dont do the whole "white guy wishes he was japanese" thing. Do you even live in Japan? Hell you must still be with parents I'd assume kek
no point arguing with a person so far up their own ass lol
I got a story from yesterday
>pulling onto highway
>get in the fast lane right away
>car immediately in front is a ford taurus, with mini CB antennae and lights in the rear window
>give him plenty of space
>bmw whips up on my ass
>second bmw starts tailgating first
>after a while some space opens up in the slow lane
>let them by
>first bmw starts tailgating cop
>second bmw passes on the right at ~80+ in a 55mph zone
>blue lights come on
>both pulled over
so i showed my car, any pictures of yours? wouldnt mind seeing this togue machine
pic related can beat any of your faggy togue mobiles
I don't even have a sho. there are more than two people talking to you itt. i am just on the side that thinks civics are gay. honda should stick to motorcycles and lawnmowers.
Well we've already seen the SHO smoke a civic that got a 1.5 second headstart, but since there aren't any videos of the two tokyo drift anime togue racing. That's all the proof we have.
I used to do stupid stuff with friends on group drives like see how fast we could get from one city to another on a winding mountain highway, but never actually highway racing, just high speed convoys. Never raced from a light, but have done a few pulls in town against friends in the dead of night.
Closest call I ever had was out cruising around in my 32 gts, with an acquantance in his 32 gtr. It was like 1am on a weekday, come around a corner and he does a huge slide coming out, only to have a cop maybe 100 meters away who'd pulled someone over. She looks at us and we slowly drive by staring straight ahead as she glares at us the whole time.
She was so pissed lol. Penalties are so strict for speeding or racing here that it's too risky to do it. Cars getting impounded on the side of the road, permanently, sort of thing.
Why you avoiding me bro, unless you're too embarrassed to show /o/ your civic? is it a pile or what?
most likely, hes too dense to just fucking post a picture lol
>people who deny fwd sports cars
You either have to accept that
FWD sports cars exist
A FWD econobox is faster, and better in everyway than what you drive.
cry your bitch beta tears :)
>my mom gave me $3,000 to buy a 94 civic
>it didn't live up to my fast and furious expectations
>I'm really sore about it, so I'll shitpost on a Malaysian flyfishing emporium
$3,000 doesn't even buy a civic here. At best you'd get a high mileage Ford Escort.
The third best country to live in the world, ranked far ahead of the USA
Fuck even civic type r would smoke a gtr lmao
Only if you tongue my boipuci first fagget
>hey this'll be fun lets race on this stretch of road no one is using anyway
>oh shit it's the cops!
>get shot, get arrested, get beaten, get car impounded, get car torn to pieces, police seize car, fined 10 years wages, jailtime, probation for years, never job again, police drive car now, police use car to aid in stealing more peoples stuff
Yeah no thanks.
all this civic talk and I'm just dding a fine german automobile, with true racing heritage behind the brand, you guys should do it as we do here in Germany
Just find a hatch with the least amount of modifications you can find. If you like the car you can basically make it into a track car later on because after-market for the civic is insane
It isn't. The 2nd and 3rd gen models are absolutely hideous IMO. The Yamaha 60-deg V8 in the late 3rd gen SHO models was a somewhat interesting concept if it wasn't plagued by reliability issues due to poor design.
But I won't bash anyone for having a different opinion though.
I couldn't care less about plastic interiors or anything like that as long as the car's functional, but paying for better designers wouldn't be too much to ask.
For the 2nd gens the grille looks like something out of a shitbox Fiat.
The 3rd gens tried to be different to its contemporaries but in a wrong way. The car looks bloated as fuck.
we were chased by cops when they showed up to a race but then decided to stop the honda behind us because we were too far ahead, we were in a 2008 bmw 745i
Not really. I have a fast car and there is no point in beating some kid in a civic pushing 140hp at a stoplight.
Will go on cruises through a twisty section of road, spirited driving ensues, but full on racing on the street is full retard.
Tracks are for when you grow up and have a car that is worthwhile.
hurr durr racing expensive toys on a public road with idiots.
Stay pleib /o/
i keep going places and hanging out from people with /o/ who want to show me the racing scene, so we go stand around in the dark for some half-hearted digs in an industrial area or drive around for hours looking to race someone on the highway, always watching for cops and sitting at gas stations. i'm 99% sure at this point that real, good street races are nothing but a myth, an El Dorado. whereas i never fail to have fun at the track, even if my bike breaks or i crash.
can my taurus sho join you? can it win in the twister twistie twister twistie twister twisteie ditwsidti live you i kovey ouy twistie i lovek oyu t iwos tie i lov eou ah i live you twistie
Meet the right group, small private meets usually dont invite riff raff and dont spend their evenings getting chased out of lots.
Met a nice small group of ~20 guys, all into cars and wrenching. Infrequently race, mostly wrenching and bullshitting with an occasional race or group trip to a HDPE or roll race event.
This is what I used to do before I started getting depressed again and disappeared from everyone else's life. Small meets of the usual friends and aquantances with mostly the same cars, shoot the shit quietly for a few hours in a parking lot, then dinner, then sometimes a cruise afterwards.
Very little riff raff, no reving or burnouts or other stuff. If someone new came and did something stupid we'd politely inform them not to, and they wouldn't do it again.
Every huge meet I've ever been to has invariably ended badly, with police getting called.

You're literally an object to me, a toy to be played with until you've exhausted your usefulness. Then I toss you aside and move on to new prey.
my 98 2.0 jetta is the slowest piece or german garbage ive ever owned, the two guys in built cars would have been a mile ahead of me before i got even close to there passing speed
if i had been in my chevy truck, with my supercharged small block, i probably wouldve given them a run though
If you are legit butt blasted by some NEET's comment on a Korean fingerprinting image board then you need to stop posting and get a tumblur xir.
>all these shitposting was caused because of ur memelaps screencaps
kek, where are the pair of butthurt tripfags posting civics again?
I got caught drifting out of a taco bell drive through and into the street, bouncing off the rev limiter, at 9pm on a friday night. A cop was parked in the taco bell parking lot and watched the whole thing. He let me off with a warning...

That's mostly what I did. Did lots of stupid shit in an '81 Firebird, then a '85 Camaro, then an '84 S10 (with the Camaro's drivetrain in it), then an '84 Cutlass ... on and on.
Had the S10 the longest and liked to run it from a dig. Fat tires, light weight and short gearing gave it an edge. With the F-bodies and Cutlass it was like 50/50 dig or from a roll on a highway.
Very rarely had to deal with corners. But I was in the midwest. You'd have to go somewhere with curvy roads for touge shit. The coasts, Rockies, Appalachia, etc.
