    Damn IL lawmakers

    Well I just read the local paper and they listed some new state law going into effect on Jan. 1, 2008. The main law that pissed me off was the new street racing law. The law state that anyone involved in street racing can now have their vehicle impounded and their drivers license revoked. Any other states have any of these new street racing laws? I feel like im in So Cal now, except with shittier weather and less mexicans.

    i only street race up to about 15 mph over the speed limit. that way. you never are at too bad of a ticket if caught, and can slowdown real quick. that ain't bad when it is a 50 mph road. 70 mph is enough to see which street car has more grunt. atleast for a 16 old kid in a pickup truck. :LOL:

    Ya when your in a 400+ HP car. o-100 is less than 10 seconds. So before you can look down your already in trouble HAHA!!!

    0-180 in my 240 is around 20 seconds!!! So Thats why I never street race unless its an actual good challenge. I like racing on the track better anyways, There is more people there to watch the actual story go down. No B.S lies!!

    the worst thing about track is the closest 1/4 mile to me is in St. Louis which is over 100 miles away and the closest 1/8 mile track is about 60 miles away.

    Ya that does suck for you man!! The closest 1/4 is in bristol for me and thats 4 hr drive 1 way. But I have an 1/8 mile 30 mins down the road.

    But if your in an open country its a hole new ball game. Just busy streets and towns. Thats a big No no in my book. Just gotta be smart when racing.

    Sucks but it is dangerous. Too bad so many tracks are gone. The public doesn't want the noise of the track but doesn't want street racing either. So car enthusiasts are basically screwed. It's funny that the car manufatures are building more and more horse power that you won't be able to use any more. race you to 25

    Its pretty much national law here now, car get impounded, you get a $350 fine plus a court date. Well that my understanding of what I was told by an officer, be fore the law took effect.

    I live a half mile from what used to be a pretty nice 1/8 track. It sucks they had to shut it down about 30 years ago, now it just has houses on it.

    The scary thing is how they interpret the law. I could see them trying to use it against you even if you just get on it from a light hard without another car around. If you gat a jerk cop and or DA you could be in a world of hurt.

    Ya well when I had my z28 camaro I pulled out of a pizza station and I accidently churped 2nd!! and a cop wrote me a ticket for disturbing the peace!! he was a doush bag!!! So if they wanna give you a ticket they will come up with something no matter what.

    I have cops coming into my dads business (were my car sits) and asks him questions about it all the time, Like whats done to it and if I have NOS and shit. Dad plays dumb and is like That piece of shit stays blowed up so who cares what it has!!! LOL!!! then when they leave he's like wat dumb asses we have these days!!!

    I think cops should lease the drag strip for free 1 night a week and let kids run there cars safely and legaly. I seriosly think this would help in the racing on the streets. But no one likes to listen to the public talking!!!

    Blame the layers and the court systems. You can get sued for anything now a days. It's ridiculous the amount of pussies in this country/world.
