Why is that? I was thinking about it the other day (when some knucklehead in a Mazdaspeed was trying to race). I didn't bother, but if I had he would no doubt have wanted to go from a roll.

Why is that okay? A good launch is part of racing. The two reasons I can think of, for those who street race, are a) there are a lot of kids with FWD that don't launch well, (in which case, man up...), and b) it can be loud and attract official attention - in which case, either man up or don't race.

What am I missing?

Cheers
