some of you need to get your stories straight.
What he meant by how fast these cars are going they traction they got, heres what it comes down to.
When street racing started back in the late 60's early 70's there was those street rods and kids racing on straight away open roads, but it wasnt as deadly because those cars werent fast back in the day, they were hitting trap speeds of maybe 70 mph? and had all the traction in the world.
now in todays society street racing has become alot worse then it has, guys are brining cars to the street with HP ranging from 400-1000+hp and running slicks and drag radials to keep traction, but tehres guys with street tires as well.
over here in NY the racing is pretty insane, guys have these old school muscle cars that put out like 700hp and run slicks and when they launch they lift the wheels on the street, now thats with a prepped spot such as a heated street with VHT layed down on it, and then theres other spots like where those imports race at with un-prepped streets and then when they launch they spin and they have a tendency to lose control because the car goes sideways, this kid made perfectly clear sense, some of you just dont understand, the dude is right...
Are you fuckin kidding me man? Cars of the 60s and 70s had trap speeds of what? Back in the 60s and 70s, aka the "Muscle car era", cars weight was twice as much, the engines were twice as big, and they ran very very well. If anything, it was waaay more dangerous back then. You cant get away with shit now, but back then, street racing in a city or w/e was normal, and the cops just broke it up.
Ever notice the similarity in most street racing accidents? Its with kids like this guy, with there modded cars the were handed down from their parents. Very very very rarely do you see a 1000 hp car wrecking street racing. The people who have these cars can usually handle them and are smart enough to kno where and when to race. Guys like this will race anywhere, anytime, and thats what causes the wrecks.
This dude is right in a sense of the speeds the cars are going at is insane. But not him, and not 70 percent of the people racing on the street. Look at the cars they show in the news report, they are all 4 door hondas or beater rides, no 700 hp cobras or 500 hp wrx or 1200 hp supras (nick hogan is an exception)
