How/When did you get into street racing

[color=black][font=arial] So all you guys talk about racing and kills and stuff. Well im only 14 but i can drive a standard yet don't have even a permit! But I was wondering how you guys got into and when you got into and if you guys r the " big guy " in town. Also if you want add some stories.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

I got into it because I was already way obsessed with organized forms of racing(NASCAR, F1, you name it) so it only seemed logical for me to do something that I loved to watch...I'm not the biggest fish in my pond, but everyone definitely knows who I am(referred to as "the kid with the maxima")because I have the only maxima in town that races, and compared to everyone else, I'm pretty quick(goes to show you just how small the scene is in my town), so I have a fair bit of clout.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

When I was about 10 years old. My father, brother, and mother were driving to my cousins house. It was a friday night..so we normally weren't out then because my mom worked friday nights..but she was off that night. So we were driving to my cousins house. When my father pointed out a trans am and a mustang and they were racing. Then he exclaimed "now that Z28 is gettin' in on it!" And I was just watching...but I was so excited. It made my heart beat really fast and I was like..in awe. Everything just made it so appealing. And still today when I see/am involved in a race..I still get those exciting feelings. It's what keeps me doing it. But I really got into later when I got a learners permit. I liked accelerating. Not really going 80mph+..I just liked flooring it and feeling the acceleration. And one day...I was in our 93 dodge intrepid ES..which had some sort of suspension problem that made it so easy to spin out in. So when I learned it would squeal wheels obnoxiously loud...I'd drive around looking for sports cars to do that by. Just to see them get on it. And I remember one of my first races in that car was against an early 90s prelude. It was a really close race and I was so excited and thrilled..I was hooked. And that kind of sums it up. The end.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

That's cool. I've seen a couple races upclose but i remmeber what really got me into it. One day after gymnastics practice my dad came to pick me up in my aunt's
1996 mitsubishi eclipse gt-s and i didn't think much of it until we got on the main street and he stops in the middle of the road because he saw a camaro be hind us coming once it passes us he floors it and in 3rd we fly past him( it was a convertible so the top was down) and then that night he told me about his street racing stuff. But i loved the feeling of the air going past me at 100 mph and the feel of the acceleration.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

I have always been into racing since I got my go-kart. That was when I was six. Ever since then, everything I have driven, I have attempted to max out.haha So it just hasn't stopped yet.

I believe anyone will race as it is the human drive to compete. IF you like going fast, and someone else does as well, a race is inevitable.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

In all honesty, after seeing the Fast and the Furious...I wanted to do that, to have a hot looking fast ass car. Not drive under trucks or anything, but to race nad have a fast car and what not.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

And for me it's about the whole culture of it. It's a great bonding thing, its fun to do, and its rewarding to see that increase in your 1/4.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

Honestly the culture has never appealed to me. I can hang out for about 20 minutes. And then I want to race/cruise around. Unless it's a good conversation about cars...but man I hate listening to some guy bitch about his problems. Especially when I'm only talking to him because I raced him/wanna race him. The culture isn't what I'm in it for..I don't need friends. I need a good thrill. But that doesn't mean I'd never be friends with someone from street racing and stuff. I've met some really cool people racing/hanging out at meets. It's just..not what I look for. But if I find it..hell that's cool too. Ya' know?
