Why do people even bother?

Well two races of which to speak one was up north near chicago, after being stalked by this civic with an "intercooler" he finally caught me at a light but when he revved there was no bov sound yet there was definitely an intercooler or what looked like one with what appeared to be proper plumbing, but alas after the run it was apparent, either a blown turbo? why would you be driving? or in fact no turbo at all and some kinda shitty scare tactic with the ic, pathetic

race #2 was earlier today, an older gentleman kept trying to catch me at a light in his 300zx, N/a mind you, and that was probably one of the easiest kills ever. a heavy ass automatic 300zx, the fake civic was probably faster, why did i even bother racing either one, thats beyond me

Civic may have been an oil cooler?? Probably just to look cool (and add weight). Atleast a 300zx has some class....

I know that feeling. Something new I'm trying is strictly only getting into it with specific car models. This months victim list includes the Sentra SE-R Spec 5 and Pontiac Grand Am GT's. Anything else I let slide and plod along doing the limit.
