    I never understand these threads...there is no respect to be earned in beating someone in a street drag race. Period. If your car is faster is merely an indication of either the size of your checkbook or your ability to shift quickly in a comparably powered car. Since the later is usually not the issue, I see no reason why the former should need to be measured.

    Organized drag racing is a different story...people put lots of time and effort into competing within a class or trying to achieve a personal goal of hitting a specific time. At an average night at a track, very rarely are the two people racing down the strip racing against each other...they're almost always just racing the clock.

    You sound like somebody that gets beat in street races!

    Agreed, street racing = dumb....but I always find it fun in similar situations to use a few numbers and statistics to deflate the oversized egos of some of my buddies with Hondas, Hyundai's, (and the occasional fellow wrx enthusiast) etc. who think their cars can run with the best because they put a big spoiler on or take a muffler off

    I agree with you. With stock cars it isn't any indication of a drivers abilities to drive in a straight line. So far I've only gotten chuck (owner of the z3) to even halfway agree to pull a time trial on this guys farm instead of heading to a drag strip. Heck, I could probably teach a monkey to drive in a straight line.

    What a joke!

    I get called-out all the time. Given the cars in question, what's the point?

    For the most part, I agree 99%.

    I belong to a local club, of sorts. Every Sunday night we drive to Mexico and run our cars. I was up against a lightly modded 996TT. Given its driver's disposition, that was far from modest, I not only enjoyed walking hm, and it was also gratifying to tweak a jerk.

    I can agree, it's fulfilling to shut someone up, but most people who run their mouths don't stop doing so after they lose a street race, that's kinda my point. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people lose a race and immediately start in with the "oh well this wasn't running right," or "if I had this or that part installed like I wanted, it would be different," or just plain accusing the other person of cheating somehow. It's a never ending cycle of
