Default Street Racing warnings!

I just came home from work and was being provoked to race by a mazda 323 filled with some guys saying lets race. I said I dont race for free. They said they dont have much money. I said lets make it cheap fun race for 20 bucks. They agreed. I proceeded to reverse and then burnout. My techniche for cold tires on normal roads. They tried to burnout and forgot the part about the E brake. {FWD}. I like the reversing method because it looks cooler. Well we took off when the light turned green. he jumped the light but no worries. The frog felt happy and easily had half a length on him at the top of second. at the top of third i hit 90mph. I had a length, so I let off. they provoked me to go some more so I was in third at 80 so I floored it again and the Frog jumped again to half a car lead. Then slowly I took a 1.5car lead I think. Then we both stopped at the stop light and they said they never thought a honda could beat them so easy. I downplayed it and said I have some little mods nothing mutch its just the weight of the car. I also mentioned that they had 3 people in the car. two people were out side and the driver was still in the car trying to burnout. The bigger guy reached in and grabbed the twenty. I said dont worry about it lets just exchange numbers. I reached for my wallet to get him a card. and then his other friend punched me from the side and reached for my wallet which i through down real quick. I grabbed my knife and pulled it out and said this went all wrong for us lets just leave it be. The guy with the cash said he had no beef and wanted to shake hands I just retreated to my car and they rushed. I pushed at the big guy upwards at his chin pointing the knife at his throut and said it doesnt have to be this way. Go home. His other friend came at me and I bulldoged the big guy down with a quick push to the face while stepping into him. his little friend backed off and I jumped in my car and ran the red light to get away. It was a bit scary. I usually dont do this sort of thing exept for fun. MKost people are cool but some our out to take you for what you have. Trust no one stay in the car crack your window and wait for your reward. keep it in gear and clutch ready to drop. If you get the cash great if not dont sweat it.

After this whole ordeal I am no longer going to race for money. I am too old for this. I was honestly hoping to plug the site. I might have lost. I heard the guy botch his shift witha huge grind in the gear. That is when I got one and ahalf ahead. From now on I will stick with my Del sol club.

If some punks did that to me they would be in for a bit of a surprise as I carry a handgun with me. I'm sorry that happened to you. I've never even heard of that happening. Not really a big street racing scene around here in Montana. Mostly just friends messing around and making friendly bets.

Good thing you had that knife with you or they may have gotten away with it. It is assholes like these that make you carry a weapon around with you.

No way you were going to lose to that car if it was stock for stock and they had extra weight. I am assuming that is was a GTX by far the fastest Mazda 323. At stock it is about as fast as your car and with even one extra person in the car would put them out of the running as long as you didn't make any mistakes.

Man I love being in High School, if anyone tries to beat you up it's just your friends screwing around with you, like once a few weeks ago me and a friend were at a stoplight when someone else we knew rolls up and him and 2 others jump out of his car and run up and pretend like they're stealing our car (everyone else at the stoplight looked so scared lol) but it's all good, my friend jumped out and took their car and we scared them for a few hours before we gave it back.
