If i dont make sense,may be you can help me understand whats considered street racing and whats not.

Thank you !
Hmmm, was or was not one or more of the videos two cars both going WOT at the same point in time? Also did the event occur on a public street? It appears to be visually and you did mention that it was empty at this time.

I call that a street race.

Look not trying to be a hard ass here. Just mentioning forum policy. I've made similar comment in many other similar threads. It appears that the draw of such threads is seen as more valuable that forum rules.

Cheers.

I totally understand the forum rules and get your point but as the title says "Speedo war",its a single run for each car at a time.
I wasnt trying to say that you were wrong or not,im just trying to make it clear to others that its not street racing,its a speedo shot and thats all.

You sound like the clown dude... Everyone here needs to relax and recognize that these vids are simply comparing speedos...geez. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to remember videos (posted by others) on this forum and others, where there are actually two cars racing... This is NOT the same.

If you are bragging about breaking the law-I think you are a clown and would be happy to say it to your face. That is how people get killed-crazy drivers.
Oh,thanks Mom for tryin to save me from the big bad wolf!
I hope we meet some day soon so this Clown here can make you kiss his Rabbit between his ears !

It was on a closed non public road.
I understand where your nailing the clown comment and it's pretty stupid on your part to say/comment in such a way with out knowing all the facts
But at the same token I can see how your looking out ( appreciated ) but a PM to either would have been a much better approach...

For the record I condemn street racing and as it's selfish and unsafe for the driver and most importantly the public/pedestrians & other traveling vehicles sharring the road !!

If anyone chooses to participate in such event ( speedo wars ) please please please take it to a private road coarse or air strip for that matter !!

Forum policy has been mentioned. CLEARLY, nobody is in violation, or else there'd be less talk and simply a closing of the thread.

This thread's been up for 2 full days on an extremely active message board with a very clear title stating what it's about, and it has yet to be closed. What does that tell you? To stop complaining.

And did I mention the clocks? Look at the clocks on both cars and you can see that the runs were taken 25 minutes apart. I doubt M33 sets his clock that far in advance, but just another example of how every measure was taken to ensure this thread wouldn't be interpreted as a race thread.

Getting back to the vids --- Izz I can't even think what it would feel like to accelerate that quickly through triple digits... it's real impressive how it seems to effortlessly pull throughout the range. Damn.

Yea except Ryan Dunn thought he was a smart ass and was driving drunk. I think people are going out of their way to find something wrong with this post. It is two cars going fast at two different times and probably at two different places (correct me if I'm wrong IMG or M33). I'm sure everyone here drives a bit fast sometimes and visits triple digits frequently. All we can really say is stay safe

And to comment on the actual video, it looks so effortless. Those are two beautiful cars guys.
