Well, just finished watching the segment on "Downtown" about street racing. I was actually a little disappointed because when I saw the preview about the show a few days ago, it seemed like it was going to be entire show dedicated on street racing. Instead it was just a small 20 minute segment or so. Anyway, it showed a kid that owned a Trans Am that was fully souped up and his daily street racing regimen.

First..the reporters said that street racing is an addiction that young people have.

My thought on that: It's only an addiction if you let it get out of hand, don't keep a smart head on your shoulders, and you do it foolishly. But the people who really know what street racing is all about, know that you don't let things get out of control or get to the point where it does indeed become addicting.

They said the Trans Am gets up to 180 m.p.h. I have yet to see a street legal T.A. get that fast on the street. And considering the speedometer on the car only went up to 150, I have to wonder if they either made that # up, or if he has gone that fast at the track.

Also, the guy that owned the T.A. is the <b>biggest f^cking moron</b> for racing at high speeds with his PREGNANT girlfriend in the car with him. He obviously has a problem, if he's SUPPOSEDLY spending $2500/month on car mods (says he has spent close to 90 G's total on the car) and not saving or thinking about his family.

They did show some nice cars. A couple of Supra's, and the cars in the very beginning of the segment were a nice touch as well. (Blue S-2000, Green Eclipse from Fast & Furious, and a Maroon Rx-7) Anyway, the show could of did a better report on the actual aspect of street racing instead of concentrating on one main racer. BUT, in a way it's kind of good that they didn't report on street racing in a pure form because the reporters most likely would of gave a bullsh^t report.

when i saw the 10 minute clip a week ago i thought it would be a great show, turns out I saw the whole street racing segment. BTW I agree that guy is an idiot, maybe not cause of 2500 a month on car but because of 2500 a month when he has family to take care of and has to save money just so his little t.a. can go

She's on www.girliegirlracing.com My girl just joined with them also. I'll post some pics of her and her ride later when I get home from work. The cool thing is that both my girl and Lauren did all the work themselves on their cars. Suspensions, stereo, body kit installation, engine, etc.... It's getting real popular around this area now as far as girl racers go. Every time I go chill with some racer friends in a local parking lot, I always see at least 2 or 3 girl racers pull up. The other day I saw a 93 Prelude that was dropped, boddy kit, rims, etc... that had 2 AMAZING looking Asian chicks inside. My draw pretty much dropped when I pulled up next to them at a light. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

My girlfriend is into her car. She has a 2000 Celica GTS with a full Kaminari kit, Tien coilovers, 18's, carbon fiber hood, APR replacement wing. It's way nicer than my car. If I knew how, I'd post some pics of it.

My girls got a '92 Saturn SL2 that she drives like its a F1 car. I like speed, but she routinely goes like 115-120mph.<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle> I am not b.s.'ing either. I was going 110 and she was still pullin hard. No mods yet, just repairs (she needs new motor mounts).
