BIG thumbs down on street racing. Keep it on the track. Don't endanger everyone else.

Man that little Audi was really bitch-slappin' that BMW. At least the Audi tried to use his turn signal (once) but I was waiting for them both to crash.

Yeah street racing is dumb. And they are incredibly stupid, as trucks can not change direction or slow at any rate to prevent sure disaster. Too bad the Audi plate can't be read by law enforcement, but I hope they track down the video poster.

We had a gasoline tanker truck here go off the overpass onto the intersection below because of that. Unfortunatly, the truck driver was the only one to be consumed by the flames.

NEVER put someone else's Grandmother at risk!

I've seen this vid awhile ago, it's amazing nothing bad happened, I don't care if these idiots crash but it usually involves an innocent victim when an accident does happen.

997 TPC turbo C4S
981 Boxster S
06' SLK 350, Iridium/Ash all pkgs. 6-spd, 19" DCR. (Gone but not forgotten)

No Baron, I have seen it a lot. Most recently it was a Twin Turbo 911 and a CL65 doing it down rush hour (albeit reverse rush hour traffic) down the causeway, going on the sholders and more. It is a wonder noone was killed, but the two idiots made it without a scratch.

Two of the WORST cars to do that in. A mid engine car can handle those directional changes easily, but front and rear are at a disadvantage. Even the PSM couldn't save the rear engined Porsche at those speeds, and the CL65 is an oinker to make change direction and stop as well. They were doing more then twice the speed of traffic, and 5300 lbs. doesn't change direction or stop fast, no matter who tuned it, at those speed descrepancies.

Sometimes talented people can do stupid things, and a lot of stupid people are lucky.

A criminal act.
Sometimes people think that they are protected in their cars.. and they can afford to act silly. Well its not the case, it takes a minute to lose your life or to kill innocent bystanders.
