    i meant to post this, but i kept forgetting. sad story. this street is 10 min from my house and is known for street racing. why would you race on this road, and if you own a saturn ion, why in the name of God's green Earth would you race a 350z? fuckin idiots!

    That’s a damn shame. Everyone looses in that situation. Racing on the street is never a good idea, but if you are going to do it, only do it on an open road. It is one thing if you want to put your life in danger, but you never know what innocent bystanders could get hurt or loose their lives from your immaturity. I was reading about these teenage brothers in my area, they were 17 & 18, drunk, driving daddy's A6. The 17 year old brother was driving and he rolled it and killed the 18 year old. Now the older brother is dead and the younger brother is going to go to jail for killing him. Everyone looses in that situation, imagine how the mother feels.

    those redlines are pretty quick. when i was at the track, a redline with a 12psi pulley kit was running pretty quick if i remember, faster than my H for sure. maybe it could keep up with the Z if it was upgraded...

    I saw a link to this thread about a horrible car accident, I figured I would post it here. It is some of the most graphic shit I have ever seen. I always read about accidents, but there are never really pictures of what actualy happens to accompany the story.

    holy shit....

    theres so many feelings that i have with that post ive responded to bad shit when i was on a first response rescue team in washington.. and that easily rates near the top. i feel sad for that 18 year old, she didnt deserve that, no one does... must have been horrific for her in her last thoughts... then other feels was anger, why the f would any 18 year old have a 911 996 cabriolet, and furthermore why wouldnt they be trained to drive it if they did have the backings for it... i know alot of really rich people and i know some 18 year olds and 17 year olds with RS4's Cayman's and other stuff, and most of their parents have put them through safe driving and accident avoidance / handling classes, and many of them are good drivers... point in hand no one under 20 should have a car with over 300hp, they dont know how to handle it, and they dont understand the risk that they impose on themself and others, that civic driver was fuckin lucky, any other car and they would have been seriously hurt, they were probably doing around 65 so they were getting hit at a force of atleast a 40mph frontal impact maybe more depending on how fast the porsche was actually going

    horrible crash, i would hate to be her parents they will regret the decision to get their daughter a 911 forever
