roll racing is like the special Olympics

*** this is my humble opinion, not intending to get anyone's panties in a twist***

but whatever happened to real drag races? enough of these roll races already. no one cares that you can beat a car from a roll when you would lose in a proper race. fwd cars ARE fast and fun to drag race with, people have been making them fast for a long time now and we as a community should be following suit.

100% completely agree. I only do dig racing in my little golf gti. Yea there's the traction issue but with some good tires and a nice launch you'll have a blast. Surprises me every time too

@jay745 I think straight line racing has it's place. like arm wrestling, it's cool, but mma is way more interesting.

it's fun to line up against something that should technically be faster than you, and then beat it.

Ive done about 3 roll races my entire life. I even think theyre posted on this website. After that I just couldn't see the fun in it.

I did however drag race last night from stoplight to stoplight like some oldschool FNF movies. I also lost to the 370Z

It minimizes the driver and you get to see how two different cars compare, rather than someone's ability to get it moving from a stop. But with launch control and DSG it isn't like racing from a standing stop really takes any skill either.

I totally get that, but I definitely prefer roll's only because it's less hard on my car. From a dig is definitely the superior race though, definitely takes more skill. I do more dig races in my truck than my car, because it has virtually no spin, so I can mash the gas and just roll hard. #ZeroSkill
