one: dont embellish too much. your tC did not blow the doors off that Boxster S en route to vegas.

two: dont be afraid to let us know you got skooled by a neon. there are several out there that can do that to you, i am sure. i just dropped one to an accord, and i want a rematch.

three: even if you dont own a Scion - post your racing stories here anyway.

four: and if you run heavy mods, list them if we dont already know of them. nice to know what you are running when you tell a story about handing it to yet another civic si.

that being said, i want to take an opportunity to let you know that "we" here at yoursciontc.com certainly do not condone illegal street racing. nor do we encourage it. but we arent going to censor you from telling us about it. that we do encourage. go toe-to-toe with someone at your own risk, then reflect on it here.

drive fast, but drive safe.

Please drive saftely. I am all for illegal street racing out in the middle of nowhere. Just don't do it during rush hour traffic and or on a intersecting road or highway.

With that said hammer down.

Hey guys, I live in one of the most congested areas (at least in NY), so for me, racing's not really an option right now, I'm not suicidal. But anyways, I look forward to reading your racing stories and sighing sadly, wishing I could race. :c(

I'd definitely NEVER even think about racing a car myself but, sadly, I've never been able to see one in person. I live in Southwest Virginia and that's just not something I've found around here.

Anyone know of good spots to head to on the East Coast for a fun weekend trip to see a good race or two?

If so, and you don't want to post it (hehe) just e-mail me [email protected].

Thanks, and happy and safe racing you all!!

and with any luck, i can find some time on monday and tuesday to get out of this damn office and onto the roads. you want twisties? check out this highway.

http://www.pashnit.com/roads/cal/Highway36.htm

the webpage is a motorcylists dream, listing the best roads, highways, etc... in the state with write ups and pictures and maps. but, after having ridden this road on my bike from the coast in to red bluff, i am dying to get back up to it in my tC. click the link, and scroll down. there is a 3D map of the road, and it is beyond curvy. i spent 95% of my ride gears 1-3. super fun. and my matrix put up a good fight on it as well. but the tC... yeah. would be more fun if it wasnt solo. any other tC owners that would want to carve that mountain road with me (hint-hint, buy a tC, eric) let me know.

Racing is Bad!!! My ex used to drive like there's no tomorrow... not even to race... just to drive (90+ every day in & out of traffic). It used to scare the sh*t out of me. Then I got used to it... and then started to drive like him... bad idea. Then I grew up... now I'm an oldie... driving only about 70.

Having graduated from a '95 Camry to my tC, I can finally hold my own with some cars on the road. I've had a couple of stoplight moments with other cars so far, but nothing I want to describe on here yet... I'll post once I find a worthy adversary.

Nothing wrong with racing if you know what you are doing and do it in a semi-controlled area, lol. Racing and driving fast ain't about growing up...People that say that will NEVER understand the passion and thrill for acceleration and speed...You NEVER grow out of it if you are truly into it.
