You can have a Camaro vs bs forum, but not street racing.

So we can play pretend, but real world outcomes will not be tolerated?

The biggest lsx info site ls1tech.com has a street racing section. Are they kiddies over there?

Please with the holier than thou b.s.

Half of the Camaros heritage is street racing. Maybe the grown ups on other sites are mature enough to discuss it in a "adult" manner while the kiddies here are scared to talk about it?

Sure there was street racing back in the 60's when the camaro debuted. There was also segregation and lead paint, so just cause it happened in the past don't make it right.

This site seems to have a good working relationship with GM, that gets us some perks and info we wouldnt otherwise get. I seriously doubt GM would maintain a professional relationship with a site that openly endorsed street racing.

And now that you mention it, since the 'exodus', the average age and intelligence level of your ls1tech poster has gone down significantly, so I would call them 'kiddies'. A man assumes some personal responsibility and takes it to the track.

seriously? You just compared street racing to segregation? LOL good one. Because street racing takes black people out back and hangs them from trees. Yes it sucks when people get hurt or killed in street racing, but some times in some places you can do responsible street racing. I know its hard to imagine, but people dont die in every street race. Oh and sometimes people actually die at the drag strip. Can you believe it?

If this site does have an actual professional relationship with GM then I understand why they dont have a street racing section. However just because you have a section doesnt mean you endorse it. Allowing people to talk about it isnt endorsing it. But if GM doesnt want it at all that makes sense.

Really? lol you must of migrated from ls1.com. Dont be butt hurt about it. Just be happy that tech exists to provide resources and knowledge you would never get here or ls1.com. This site has huge potential, but there are some serious tool bags that post the most nonsense (not saying its you) and try to pass it off as gospel ..i.e...30rwhp from a CAI or using a line lock to launch is just as good as a trans brake.

You never once ever in your adult life got on the gas next to another car? Street racing doesnt have to be a no B.S. drag race. It could be a roll race on the highway/back road race/ block off road/ old runway....ect ect.

Most forums with a street racing section degenerate even more than the -vs- section which is already the section with the biggest ban-stick short of political talk on off-topic.

Putting aside any moralism, a kills section is just a place to tell everyone how big your epeen is. You're probably lying about the size of it anyway. At least at a race track there's someone there to give you your officially verified measurement.

You know - you make some good points. I don't think any of us here have never gotten a little happy with the loud pedal with the car(s) next to use. For me, it comes down to it's just easier to not allow it than to have to moderate it. Yeah - everything has to be moderated, but there's just something about posting some of the stories I can imagine seeing on here that really irks me. Having a site of my own (that I hardly frequent, lol) I can say that we have a Street Kills Section, but I've never liked it. Too many times I'd read about people evading the cops, or just being REALLY irresponsible around other drivers and with others in their car. This site doesn't cater to GM, nor does it have sponsors that we cator to. I think it just makes it more of a friendly place. God knows that we have enough politics and religion that creeps in making things complicated enough, let alone another controversial topic like this.
