Why bother?

I don't know why people keep posting videos at night? 99% of them you wouldn't even know what you were looking at if it wasn't for the audio. And on top of that, most of them are street racing

Hmmm....maybe because its against the law to speed and street race, so the only way other than go to a track that we'll be able to see these is at night? Unless you would rather them do it during the day and go to jail or lose their license or something.

If you have a video you want to post, please let us see it. During the day of course.

Most the videos are from me. So if you want to get mad at someone im here.

To answer your questions.

I have videos at night because at 1-4 am in the morning the freeways are dead. And I dont do stuff like this during the morning.

If we do race at night we take into consideration the others on the road, thats why we wait for however long it takes to for the freeways to clear up.

As for the street racing part, yes I do take a part of it. But you cant say you havent done it either.

Theres a reason for modding cars.

If it offends you sorry, but you have the choice not to click on the thread or not.

I guess if you don't like them then don't watch them. Problem solved.

Just a generalized statement...not directing at anyone. We're only sorry after something happens...then its too late to say sorry cause it doesn't matter after it's all said and done. Tragedies will occur...and by placing yourself at risk, no matter what the conditions, will place others in the same predicament even when they aren't the intended targets. Shit happens and we each play a part. I'm just as guilty as many others.

They're all racing video's, the 335I's are fast cars, what else do you think they're going to shoot? A vid of their new rims, exhaust? It's all street racing, so why bother starting a thread about street racing videos' shot at night when you don't like this type of street racing.

At least you and the other poster who don't care for street racing, drive slow cars, otherwise you'd be hypocrites, because anyone who has the desire to purchase a fast car, will drive fast and yes participate in a street race from time to time.

Please don't equate these vids to teenagers driving like maniacs in crowded areas, on the wrong side of the road, etc. that we hear about from time to time in the news. That is a completely different type of street racing, which most of us here do not codone or indulge in.

Hmm, that's sounds good; except for the "or something".

how about investing in nightvision video cameras so that we can see the races better.

I'm pretty sure he meant those who actually drive fast cars or those who mod them to go faster.

No need to street race, that sh1t is lame!!!

http://www.scca.org/

duhhh!! surely there is a track very close to every one of you! Drive in a controlled environment where your laps are timed, safe friendly environment full of racers more than willing to teach and help with driving and tuning.

Street racing is LAAAMMMEEEE

Fellas,

I would be lying if I said I never drive my car spirited once in a while. The thing that bothers me is the street racing that's "scheduled" or even at the stop light "acknowledged."

The night videos I think are just stupid.

A: Because you are racing at night, trying to fly under the radar (because what you are doing is illegal), coupled with the fact that it's more dangerous to drive at night.

&

B: You can't see anything in the videos (you are right, I have a choice to open the thread or not, but sometimes, I'm just hoping to see two cars at the track).

Are you guys to cheap to spend a few bucks and set some time up at the track?
