    Since when is the only thing that matters equipment? A race is a race....

    Having said this, in the case of my encounter we stopped before the "race", he challenged me, we raced, and we critiqued the event after the fact.

    Right, which is called a ricer fly-by... im talking if its close.. not a blowout like that.

    that's the problem with drag racing, it's just too contrived. Got to get out there and really go...for real.

    yea...it's not like in TFATF when they keep catching up and falling back and catching up....in a real race, you're either pulling on them or falling behind...It's as simple as that.

    but what ends the race? I mean yes, pulling ahead by a wide margin will do it... and on the 1/4 mile its measured... but what about in a wide open top speed run, even given equal cars... if one hesitates and lifts.. its over.. same goes with a race like that.. especially when a bike is involved.. or bike vs. bike, it takes big balls to keep it that fast on a public road, or anywhere for that matter, and if you lift.. you lose.
