I'm addicted to streetracing :wub:

Not the peace loving, tree hugging kind where lotsa dumba$$ people gather to showoff their car, but the loner racer style... i love racing on the streets... and i can't help it :evil:

Oh yeah... when i'm racing i even would ignore the most beautifull hentai babe... 100% pure racing mode on :thumb:

Yeah its pretty silly when just-became-adult teens gather up to show their "tuned" (more like 'styled') ricer rice-cups with all kinds of look-mumbojumbo (wings, hoods, "double exhaust"-screw-on-part) and braggin they will get some NOS soon (which they never get) but actually NOTHING is done with engine, REAL tuning, to give justice to their looks.

What kind of car you have BTW. :emb:

:lol:

I know exactly what you mean. It's one of the few times I feel like I'm at peace. I'm much more calm and collected in my car, and it's even better at night. But I don't race as much as I cruise, even though I'm going way over the speed limit.

As far as actual racing, the crew I'm in meets up at the local dragstrip. It's only $10 to run your car, but I usually only go to watch. I know I can't hang with some of the power houses that show up. It's still lots of fun.

Do you really have a BMW 316i or do you have the remains of a BMW 316i ? :p:lol:

Maybe you haven't heard of in-transits? I'd just purchased the car before I took those pictures.

Only 115? Now I don't feel as bad about mine. For some reason I though BMWs came with more power stock. I've been thinking about getting a 325, guess I better double check some things...

Hey FLaRe, what do you think about the new Eclipse?

Alias: I was just thinking about that. That is pretty good and it's NA. The VW Golf TDI's only have 110 and that's with a turbo, NA is 90. But it's usually the torque that makes up for it on any diesel.

I took a look inside them on my last trip to the dealer for my 24K service. They're actually quite nice, but very different from previous models, so I imagine they could take some getting used to. I actually haven't seen any being driven out in the streets yet. With the addition of MIVEC and a few other slight changes, all trim levels get a 40 HP boost, which is nice.

Edit: Actually, I'm going in tommorrow morning so they can install a part they ordered when I was there for my 24K. I'll try to take my digicam and get some pictures.

Heh, I only have 110 with my car but it still gets around pretty well :p. Also, I have a feeling that car isn't a diesel. The power peak seems like it's too high and it lacks torque (for a diesel) for the amount of power it puts out. The power/torque gap with diesels is typically much larger than that. That engine puts out very similar numbers to mine, which makes me doubt even more.

I don't race my car but I go quite fast on winding roads, often dangerously fast :p. It's not uncommon for me to squeal the tires through 5 or more consecutive turns and for me to go into 30-35 mph turns doing 60 or so :D. And I only have 14 inch, 65-series tires :p. While my car may not have a whole lot of power, it handles very well. It's an absolute blast to tear up a twisty road with it and it's only the base model :p.

Oh indeed :D. I'm getting some 16 inch wheels and new tires for it in a day or two, the current tires are worn quite badly (although not by me :D) and plastic hubcaps suck :p. The only problem is that pretty much no one makes wheels for my lug nut pattern/spacing so the selection has been pretty crappy :(.

My family has two cars:

Toyota Camry (around mid 90's model, i dont remember what) 2.2 liter engine, automatic transmission and aircooler. Very nice and large car.

BMW 520 e34 5-stick transmission, 6-straight cylinder. This baby was promotion model, so it has M5 base (suspensions and such). Makes it act very nicely on higher speeds. However, 2.0 liter engine is quite smallish for 500 serie BMW cuz they are quite large cars. Quite stiff on lower speeds, but when going on mid-to-high speeds, it moves very nicely.



And i car which im currently consider getting for myself: (and looks very promising so far) Plymouth Duster -70, V8 around 250hp on stock.

http://www.nettiauto.com/viewVehicle.php?id_car=387890&PN

This is only pony-musclecar i know, but still very cool choice. There was also better Plymouth Satellite with 400hp, but it would be automaticly summer-time car only. We have long winters, so what its worth, ponymuscle are better choice cuz they can be driven on winter too without too much fearing that rear suddenly throws you 180 degrees around. Even think about pressing pedal on icy road with real musclecar and you are suddenly heading towards where you came from. :lol:

racing with other peeps on the streets is dangerous... TOO dangerous. That should be kept for real circuits. And even if my car isn't very strong power-wise, the suspension setup combined with my current skill, makes me quite fast in corners. Enough to make people cry they are going to die, when they haven't driven with me before.

And of course, when it rained a bit, my engine is torqy enough to go into power-oversteer... quite fun to take a roundabout sideways :D

Even tho it's diesel powered, it's still a BMW so i'm sure the handling and ride characteristics are still there. Plus, i'm sure you get 90% of your torque on low RPMs, which can feel very powerful at the start (most cars don't hit anywhere near their max hp until 5000+ RPM).

I guess i've got the most powerful car here so far, surprisingly. I've got a 2004 1.8T Jetta GLS, 180 bph, 170 lbs-ft torque (thanks to it's miniscule turbo). If only I got the sports package, i'd have MacPherson suspension and 17-inch alloy wheels. Too bad it's heavy as nuts and has very poor gas mileage.

Fun to drive and powerful when i need to pass someone, but unfortunately, it doesn't really garner the kind of attention I would hope for. Actually, my college buddies keep expecting to see a girl in it.

the m40 engine which my bmw has, will give the 90% to 100% between 3900-6500 rpm

Before i had a AWD 325iX with 170hp, was really fast as long as it was dry... the tires really hated water(cost me my car:p)

Still, i want an NA engine for the response. This combined with the relatively light but strong body of my car, makes it very fast in corners. If i take the line well, a 90 degree turn is done at 60km/h.

Why is it so addictive, hitting those lines?
