You're a hypocrite. Even that is still street racing, it's still illegal, and yeah it increases the risk to others for your pleasure when earlier you posted this:

So by your account then street racing would be what, running 90 MPH across an entire city? The two places that I have lived at most recently the cops can and do give out tickets for either street racing (they call it something else) or exhibition of speed without the vehicles breaking the speed limit.

There is no way you can justify that "this" level of racing is ok. You either do it or you don't. I am not an advocate of running streets but I'm honest in admitting that I sometimes do. That may be something as seemingly simplistic as a short run up to the posted limit but it's still street racing. You have multiplied the risk to others with rapid acceleration, focusing your attention on your "run" and by challenging another motorist not knowing how desperate they may be to win. I just can't comprehend that there are acceptable and nonacceptable levels of street racing.

I know, broken record: take it to a track....there are reasons why people don't save it all for a track. Tracks, auto-x, & road courses are amazing. I did alot of that stuff in the past as well and hopefully can get back into it.
lol do you know how fast 0-50 must be in a porsche or mustang gt....that race would be over so fast.
