    or dont street race - always the best answer. Save it for the track. I know, i am finding myself floorign it sometimes in first to get thrown in my seat, and its a abd habbit.

    How is the other boy who did not die? Hopefully doing good? And my condolences going out to both families, esecially the one who suffered a lost.

    drive within the abilities of your car and yourself. If not... take it to the track. Be safe guys.

    thats why i wish i knew the limits ofmy car, so i never do anything too stupid. Also want to go to a driving school to learn how to drive fast/under control. So that way in any situation, i can keep my cool and hopefully not get hurt.

    I learned my lesson on the street and luckily no one was hurt, but caused about 10k in damage to my car. My advice don't race on the street, you never know when its going to go bad. Although people never really listen and have to find out for themselves. Unfortunetly sometimes it costs people their lives. So please save it for the track or auto-x or rally-x.

    there's a fine line between spirited driving and wreckless driving.
    we got our rexes for thrills from day to day, so driving it hard during safe conditions is understandable. but i dont think we should find the limits of our vehicles in situations where innocent motorist are operating on the same road. leave stupidity and racing off the streets.

    i was a pretty stupid driver when i was a teen too. good thing my dad gave me a slow jeep, i mighta been dead by now. i'm a much different driver half a decade later.

    unfortunately for those young kids, their ego got the best of the them. it's not the first time i hear of fatal crashes from the result of street racing. and i doubt it'll be the last time i hear of it. too young to die. RIP.
