It was my first exposure to that side of the "scene" and the dishonesty among everyone I felt was pretty sad. "Bone stock" civics trying to race 300hp tuned cars for money, mustangs claiming they are stock when you could hear the blower whining, ect. I guess its normal in some places and some of you may be used to it but in other places there really is such a thing as enthusiasts getting together to enjoy cars with no deceitful motives or shady angles. Maybe its the betting and money involved, i dont know. I wasn't surprised at all when that local shop got busted several years ago for stealing and chopping tuned cars.
I would say its mostly the money involved and the rest ego.
