How do you know if someone is TRULY racing. How do you know they're not sandbagging. Or afraid to to run full speed towards a relatively unknown street. I know it's still an adrenaline rush but wouldn't it seem the only true test of racing would be at a track where one might actually go full out without fear of hitting a minivan loaded with school children and chihuahuas? It just seems the talk of I beat this or I beat that can be summed up in you really aren't sure. Maybe they saw something you didn't. Anyway, just wondering...

yeah, its mostly the chihuahuas that keep me from going full tilt.

If you win, they were racing. If they win, then you weren't really trying.
good rule of thumb.


of course, you bring a good point to the table, jb. i am willing to bet that there have been times when i was too tired to play, or traffic was involved, and some jackass flew by me thinking about how he gets to tell his friends he smoked a tC. and i probably just shook my head in disbelief.
without question it happens. both ways.

I've never wasted the gas racing a Honda in my Supra. There's nothing to prove, and I'm certain there are a few Honda drivers claiming Supra kills in Sacramento. And I'll sandbag in a heartbeat...

i will say i enjoy the downshift and punch it, drop off and let them go routine. i know it builds them up in their head. glad i could be there for them.
