    couldnt agree more.. Street racing isnt cool, and a stock ss shouldnt be able to keep up with you.
    If you have everything under control you're going too slow.

    Just a suggestion, if you don't like reading about street related stuff don't click on this section.


    Also, since we're all safe drivers here be sure to turn your radio off, and eliminate all other distractions from your vehicle, because driving distracted(drink,phone,food,radio) is so un-cool.

    agreed, stop whining and if you can't answer the op questions then don't say anything at all.

    op is the ss a turbo charged or super? a stock turbo ss can trap 103 range. and would be a good race. if it's a super charged one you shouldn't have to much trouble.

    Well in that case... smoke him! Haha
    I'm not saying street racing is a good ide... yet I'm also not saying its horrible... I'm sure every single person with any car (especially wrx/sti's) have accelerated faster than what was needed...

    I think if the road is empty and straight and you aren't being dumb... than its not very bad... then again it is illegal for a reason because most people are dumb... if I see on the news that some one in a cobalt ss got killed... or wrx... I'm not showing any sympathy because of the reason why... lol

    this is the latest street racing accident in san diego. a navy sailor lost both of his legs...



    i have no problem with comparing a wrx/sti with other vehicles, but meeting up with someone and "racing" them is illegal, and can kill people in the cars as well as other people on the road.
