*Video* -My SPI Autocross run-

Yo! Some of you guys may know I have an 03 SPI [SE]. My friends and I have a little semi-vacant lot were we test and try our cars on for autocross. This video is from my friends car in an 94 Integra. I tailed him so you can see me. We cam there to test my car handling. Much to my suprise a Stock SE has pretty good handling. Though it pulls outward any other stock car would. I am hoping once I get the proper parts I can keep up and take a tigher corners. Its a short clip. Got nothing better to do than show something.

Heres the clip.

Seems like cops would be all over that - they would here in Virginia for sure.

I find it interesting some talk about racing this and that car in the streets. But then when I say that I found a vacant lot and just did a short run, you guys automatically shut it down. I respect all your posts and your opinions, but why the negativety? Yes I know we shouldnt be doing that, but then again people shouldnt be racing on a street track. From what you see from begining to end is how long we stayed there. Not that long at all.

I think everyone on here who talks about street racing knows that the cops could "get 'em" at any time - they probably factor that into the thrill. My comment was related to the time of day and place. It seems like that strip-mall wasn't deserted and I just wonder how intense the Stockon cops are? I can't speak for the others, of course.

Yes they are pretty hard on racing teams, and import cars. This was on a back lot, pretty vacant despite for Pepboy's customers. Fortunatley we were not there for very long so nothing happened.
