In Honor of Hypsi87. . .

man this whole thing just really strikes home. We always talk about how safe we are when we street race. Late night when no one is around, who can we hurt? Right. Well Hypsi87 tragic death really shows us who can get hurt, his friends and family. I doubt many of us actually think about how are friends or family would feel if we died while street racing. We might be able to accept it, but not them. Lately street racing is just becoming less and less opealing. So im gonna try and give up street racing. Its dangerous and dumb, we shouldnt be doing it. So starting today (7/24/2005) im not going to street race for an entire month. Im gonna see if driving becomes really boring or not. Maybe after not doing it for a while i will loose the urge to do it. Im gonna give it a try, id like to see alot of other members try as well. One month isnt that long. If youd like to give it a try, add your name to the list.

It is a sad thing to see happen. My prayers go out to the friends and family. I'm new to the forums (still have some shiny spots), so I don't know everybody too well, but I know this cuts deep.

Trashed a ricer for the last time tonight, calling an end to it quite possibly forever.

Over In The Nissan Forums It Said He Died Because Of A A Series Of Rollovers From A Blown Tire But, Didn't Mention He Was Racing At The Time Though. Anyways I Hope His Family And Friends Are Doing Okay.

My street racing has been few and far between lately anyway, but now I'm gonna think twice even harder next time I do some stupid fast driving in my car.

Re: In Honor of Hypsi87. . .

I haven't street raced in a longgg time.

Really haven't raced the Camaro at all. The clutch is bad, so I've been easy.

I guess you can add me to the list... but I've already been doing it for a while. I didn't race the 240z for a long time before I sold it, except for last night I had it.. which we got on video.

From what I have seen he was not racing but he was doing over 100mph according to the cops it said in the article. But I will give up street racing too for at least a month as a way to pay hommage to my friend I miss already.

they said his left rear tire blew out and the car rolled over and he got thrown out of this car, that is what killed him. i didn't think he was wearing his seatbelt. i normally don't street race but there is a race between me and G35 coupe coming up soon. so i don't know if i can hold out. i don't want to put my name on the list then no do what i was suppose to do. that would be disrespect in his name. so i'll pass.

edit: just read the article in the O.T. forum and wow he was wearing his seatbelt but the force was so strong that it tore his seat belt up. now that really is a fucked up way to die. so sad. damn

Re: In Honor of Hypsi87. . .

Jayson, you are awesome.
I came in here and wanted to request a week of silence (No street racing) for Andy, but you beat me to it ... and a month is very inspiring.

As I have said before ... and a few times in the last week, sometimes things happen that make you stop street racing.

In addition to not street racing for a month ... I would like to challenge all of you to enter one SCCA Autocross by the end of August.

It's a great way to learn car control, realize how dangerous 40 mph is and helps get the need for speed out of your system.

Rest in peace Andy
