does everyone brag about street racing?

i have been on this forum for several days now.
i notice that in the racing/rally/motox section - its practically a street racing forum.
stories of traffic light drag racing, freeway conquests of other cars.

i joined this forum because i like the entire svt line. possibly getting an svt focus.
its a shame that some people in here brag about street racing with their focus.
street racing sucks
i lost a family member because of it.
i drive a wrx that has 227 hp stock and an sti that has 300 hp stock
i never race on the street. ever.(at least now that i'm older)
life to me is more precious than to boost ones testosterone level. in hope
of having bragging rights of beating another car on the street.

das jus me

I agree, although I do find some of their topics in there amusing. There are better Focus road/rally/autox forums elsewhere.

^^^yes, Lil_Red started a thread about a week ago about this. I don't believe really anything that most people say in there. But some of it really is amusing to read.

On a side note, if you have a WRX and a WRX STi, why on Earth do you want an SVT Focus?? So you can remind yourself why the Subaru is so much better?

There should be a street racing forum but I don't think FF wants to show that they condone it in anyway not to mention to many people give BS stories If you have a story I want a good description of what happened the other car and what the road was like (infact a picture of the road from mapquest)

You race your STI at the track or in autocross??

I agree it should be a separate forum. I tried to get info on Southern California autocross and not one response. It's all street racing. As for street racing itself, you have to realize most of the owners of the focus' on this site are teens and early twenty's males (and I did say most, not all) and think with things other than their brains still. They are too full of testosterone... They will eventually get older and wiser... They should keep it at the track. I just wish there were more organized safe events for them to race at...
