    If you're going to race for money, you'd be wise to learn how to hustle. It's all about bluffing the other guy to think he has an advantage over you somehow, and that you're dumber and slower than what you really are. Go watch "Color of Money" or "White Man Can't Jump" for some cheezy movie scenes on hustling that don't involve cars. Same principles apply, however.

    Guys will lose one race for $100, so they can make $500 on the next one. Some guys have more money than brains, however, and lose repeatedly and never figure out why.

    My theory: Don't race for money unless you are prepared to accept losing your cash.

    I'm not a big fan of organized street races, the smack talking, and the inherent risk of getting busted or an accident occurring. But I'll play around on the street a bit for fun when an impromptu race comes about.

    Good luck!

    Where I used to race (philly) the number of accidents went up once a bunch of n00bs started showing up that did not follow the 'rules.'

    And if you knew the guy was hustling you, and he wasn`t a dumbass, you could have easily made $100. If he was a good hustler, he would have asked you to run for $100, lost, and then asked to go double or nothing, and smoked you, but you being the wiser of the two, would have said no, and made out with $100... or you could have raced an idiot, and he would have just smoked you from the start, and you would have lost $100, but then that wouldn`t really be considered hustling IMO... gambling was never really my cup 'o' tea

    Exactly... For some people, they get more fired up and competitive about the setup than the actual race.

    Just do whatever makes you happy.
