Depends on the car, ricers no, but I did once, twice actually, run a diesel. With the weight and 4 wheel drive he was good out of the hole but that was it. He got what he wanted to see, my tail lights and we all laughed and went our way.
But yes, on occasion, I will........
Street racing is not forbidden here anymore, so until such time, smoke'm if you hav'm
With 550rwhp, it is a lose lose situation for me. I should beat most anything that pulls up next to me. So IF I were to race and win, well that was supposed to happen. If I were to lose then, I lose. If I were to get pulled over, I lose. If I were to wreck and hurt myself or someone else, many people lose. The problem is that people don't play the tape all the way through to the end be for they act/react. If you race many people may lose, even your loved ones if you are dead or sitting in jail. I win every time, because I just don't race. I am too cheap to race at the track, because I don't want to break my car and have to fix it. However, if drag racing is your thing, take it to the track and have at it; just make sure you have track insurance or can self insure.

No, plenty of challenges though. Let them go on the Saturn or Prius forum and proclaim how they "beat" a Vette, don't care. When I choose to have some fun the only one who will get screwed if it goes wrong is me.
Way to many waxers around here but I do every chance I get in Mexico of course. Plenty of street racing vids around here..You just have to be racing in another country it seems for it to let it fly on this board. Your better off asking this on ls1tech as you see people get offended here very easy
C7 racing me.....snicker, snicker, snicker.....Still hoping to get one to try. No one is invincible BTW, even with all the power in the world something can always go wrong. Even I can miss a shift or just decide to let the other guy feel mighty big. Or like someone posted earlier and just pretend like I'm on the phone and laugh uncontrollably at the thought. Especially if the poor guy is in his new ride and thinks it's all that, really pisses them off. If you street race, you certainly deserve whatever you get, and sometimes it's really expensive and or fatal. On another note.....BE CAREFUL, because that new owner may not even have experience to know what he's doing.
Edited....I've never beat a C7, I'm guessing I may never get to.
