    I thought it was obvious from my postings that I'm a car lover, but just to make it clear again:
    Yes, I'm a car lover as well.

    Planes and cars are differnet.

    I mean travel is more fun than mods the car alot.

    I am not mods on my car, and only I can put a little things.

    Do you agree?
    Well yea. Actually it depends. Like i prefer travelling by car, as you can visit more places, have fun driving, especially whe nwith friends. LOL you will never hear that much stories as when you'r going somehwere with buddies

    However i don't have a choise when travelling to europe. I don't mod my car as it looks cool as it is (check out the "exploring Toronto' thread).

    Airplanes are fun to watch, cars are fun to drive

    I am glad to hear that not only I am a car lover here. I would even risk to say that cars are more fun than airplanes *looking around, scarred not to get beaten up* just cause you can afford a car, you can mod it and you can do more things in the car than in airplane

We just stand and laugh.

    As for street racing, it's just stupid. For more than one reason too. First, you can very easily kill somebody. It takes all of 2 seconds for some street racing turd to end a life (his own or somebody else's). Second, street racing in the middle of the night is sure to attract gang attention. You never know when some local gang will show up guns blazing trying to kill people racing on "their turf".

    All you guys going on about "sick cars", the only thing sick about taking those cars and street racing is the person you will hit, and your moronic mentality.

    Join a club, stay off the roads. There are enough women on the road without street racers adding to the problem.

    So Tanuj i see that Corolla isn't beating anything but a snail out of that light these days then haha kidding bud.

    Anyways, yeah street racing is just stupid do it on an open highway if you have to or just beat some one out of the light to get your satisfaction that you showed off some person (which you probably didn't anyway) If you want to drive fast, take it to a track and do it there and get your numbers on the your car while your at it too which won't be too impressive for the people here :P hehe ....

    Its pretty awesome to watch, I live in the rice-rocket capital of the US. Most of the kids at my school either have a rice rocket or a scraper.

    Here's my point of view on the whole thing. Tuning is pretty cool, howevevr, I must qualify that statement. There are three situations where tuning can actually make you into a bigger tool than you already are.

    1) You have to start out with a nice car that already has considerable performance (ie, supra, skyline, etc). People who tune things like Honda Civics and such are probably the biggest tools out there. These cars wont be fast, even if you drove them off a cliff.

    2) Dont just fix up the outside. To me, putting new rims on your car, putting stickers all over it and putting a wing on the back (especially if it's front wheel drive) without making any actual improvements to performance puts you in the "talk the talk, but can't walk the walk" category.

    3) This is probably the most important part. The second you put somebody else at risk because you're being an idiot, you should have your car taken away. If you need to race, find a track somewhere. Join a car enthusiast group. Quite often they'll find a track nearby, split the costs of using it and race without putting anybody else at risk.
    Couldn't agree more.

    I suppose you just got yourself a brandnew asbestos suit, huh . Not that I would disagree .

    Oh and as far as "don't race on public roads" goes, that doesn't apply to the German Autobahn . Oh, if only my dad's Corvette was drivable...
