Haha I don't drag race because stage 2 in a FWD with shitty all seasons just spins.. I'm not fortunate enough to have my parents buy me $600 tires hence my cheap stage 2 parts.. (raceland downpipe, homemade $50 intake) if my car was AWD or could hook I'd give it a try.

Get a mount for your camera so you don't have to worry about it if you're going to film.

I think they are worried because of your age and lack of experience driving. So you're going to catch a bunch of shit for videos like this going forward.

Go register with some autocross schools and really learn how to drive, you'll thank yourself later.

Welcome to motorsports.

Late to the party here but thought i would give my input (though it may not be wanted).

Agreed... going triple digits on streets that have intersections (regardless of time of day) is dangerous for other drivers

NOBODY IS IMPRESSED BY YOUR VIDEOS OF DOING PULLS ON THE STREET!
Not that I think youre wrong I think youre over-emphasizing one variable in that crash while downplaying others. Properly sized and quality tires with a better contact patch and he would probably still be alive; might even have posted in this forum where we would be telling him not to do it on public roads with intersections...

Putting myself back in my early to mid 20's with a fast vehicle.... if you talk to me like that you're just getting ignored. Maybe the angry people in here were more receptive to being talked to like that, but I wasn't.

Want to make an actual difference? Teach people how to evaluate and mitigate risk. Show people how to enjoy their vehicles in a way that minimizes, or eliminates risk to others.
Not trying to blow smoke but this is the best response ive seen in this thread.

People speed... people who tune cars speed often. You can talk tough to young kids all you want it wont change anything. The best thing to do is stress "Time and Place." Show how to manage speed and as said above minimize risk to other drivers.

Also just how to be a responsible driver... Im more worried about people passing on the right or splitting lanes in LA than I am about people doing over 100mph

because these cars were never designed for trap speeds in a 1/4 mile...

real test of these cars is an actual road track

To get back on topic, I didn't know a 3.8 coupe was that quick? If the stratified tuned GTI is the guy I think he is (trapping 109mph), his car isnt too far off from a K04 car.

Either way, nice kills on a stock turbo.

Edit: Different guy, car I was thinking of is in a thread below racing a turbo Civic. Looks like that guys car is running quicker, but I think he's about reached the limits of the stock fuel system.
