Hell yeah that was a pretty sick video. That white turbo C6 got sideways on the highway, damn that was pretty crazy! That compound turbo 300zx was pretty quick too, and on a 2JZ-GE!

The only thing that bothers me about roll racing is that it takes the driver out of the equation. I like to think that winning is a race is partially because of your car, and the driver. When you beat a car, it's cool because you helped make that happen. It's especially fun when you beat a car that's faster, because you were better than that guy that day, in spite of him having an advantage over you.

It is a little easier for a stalled auto to launch better, because your rpms go up so much faster, but it's not necessarily that they hook better. I've let other people drive my car (even on DR's), and completely fail at launching, it still takes some skill to launch a stalled auto. Especially if you're on street tires.

Everyone has their excuses though, of course stalled auto's don't like to roll race because it puts them at a disadvantage over going from a dig. A manual guy will complain about tires, or 10 bolt. I figure if you have a weak link in your car, that's your fault you built it up that way. If you go for all power and drive around with shit tires, it's not my fault you can't hook unless you go from a roll, or are afraid to break your rear because you can't launch right or didn't want to upgrade it.

Now I'm not saying that roll racing is retarded, it's fun. I like to roll race, my car does good from a roll, better from a dig, but it's fine from a roll. But if you're going to decide who is faster, than it should be done from a dig. Roll racing is just for fun, imo. The launch can be the deciding factor for the winner, and it takes a lot of skill to get it just right, and when you take that out, it's just not the same.

On a side note, it's funny now that people know what a stalled auto is, people don't like to race from a dig. I remember when all I had to do was tell someone mine was auto and if they had a manual they'd always think they were going to win automatically, even if it was a 15 sec car, lol. Now if I tell people I have a stall, and what size it is, they refuse to even race at all from a dig, sometimes even from 20-30 roll, lol.


Pretty cool video though, the flames coming out that vettes exhaust were awesome.

lol any car that dead hooks on the street is probably a slow car anyway. I'll bring some 275 drag RADIALS to your stop light. You may get me for about 30ft, but I invite you to watch the show as I skate by and continue to put bus lengths on you while still hazing the tires at 140+.

Just as much as putting an automatic. Driving a car that spins tires because of power and not just launching it to hard is a much different game.

Just what do you have to "drive" in an electronic automatic car? Stab and steer is all you do.

If that's the point, I don't wanna hear about how good of a driver someone is. Anyone can push the gas pedal and go straight.

A STREET CAR
Any car driven on the street. Most people use it when talking about cars that are built to race but are still driven on the street.Doesn't matter luxery/stripped interior/whatever. If its registered/plates/"legal" than its a street car.

I'm up for it. Loser buys the first round. I've got a nice little section of abandoned road (4-lanes, 2 miles long) by the house.

I'm trying to get my pig tech legal by the end of Feb. NHRA is at Firebird 19 - 21. They prep the crap out of the track for the event, and the following weekend is usually packed for the "Street Drags" on Friday night. If you want to see what your car can really do; this would be a good/cheap weekend for it!

Later,

Greg

Well I'm putting my cage in right now and will have to cert it in March, so I can't run it on the track until after March. But I may make the trip after it's cert'd. Then I'll put a few busses on you on the street, then a few football fields on you at the track
