      I was at a light today, heading home from work. I had a red B5 behind me who gave me dubs when I looked in the rearview mirror. When the light turned green, I mashed the sh#t out of the gas, took off running. He kept up for about 100 feet before I out ran him. Now, I don't know if it was a turbo 4 or a 6 but he ran pretty good. Lowered, good throaty exhaust note. Clean car, maybe could use a paint job, but decent. Nothing cheap looking and no fart can exhaust. So, to the red B5 in Midland, MI heading north or Freeland rd, same time next week, if you're anywhere around.

      Right. Street racing. That's exactly what we were doing. Swerving in and out of traffic, running at 100 mph, all while throwing our safety and every other person's safety at risk. Save your speech for somebody else. We drove our cars hard for 6 seconds or so, all while in a 55 mph zone. Nothing ridiculous. I work as a full time paramedic and volunteer firefighter. I've seen what happens to people when they are stupid in their cars. We maybe hit 65. Maybe. Please save your comments for somebody who is really being an idiot instead of jumping to conclusions.

      Also, I have a gay friend who is a professional drifter. I'm sure he would just love your comment and just gobble it up.

      So you should know that it only takes seconds for someones kid to run out into the street and get killed because you were being stupid and exchanging "dubs" whatever the hell that means. Did you turn on your sweet blue light while you were giving said dubs?

      Really? Is that what you want to make this about? You have no clue where we were. There are NO HOMES within a mile and a half in either direction from there. It is nothing but fenced off, private company owned land. It goes on for miles and miles. I'm sure the middle of nowhere constitutes as somewhere, but it really is the middle of nowhere. The worst thing that would have happened was hitting a deer. But really, the point has been made either way.

      You didn't like what I did and there's nothing you can do to make me feel wrong about what I did. Leave it at that. I really don't feel too compelled to justify my actions to you, and yet here I am. Show a little bit more respect, too. Not everybody is an elderly lady driving their car. Some people actually enjoy beating the crap out of their cars every once in a while. If that's not you, don't read any more of my posts.

      To everybody else out there reading this thread, enjoy your car the way you want to. Dress it up, drop it, paint it, customize it, race it, drive it hard...what ever you want to do. Keep in mind to do so safely.

      Racing on streets is stupid. Go to a drag strip and race your slow VW like a man.

      And who buys a red car anyways? Red cars are only driven by dangerous speed demon maniacs. I bet when he bought that car he said to himself... "I can't wait to go run over a Nun and some innocent school children". This is sick I tell you. It's time the government step in and do something about this. Corvettes should all be confiscated and crushed. Same goes for W8 Passats. Those W8's are just so incredibly powerful and fast that pulling away from a light at full throttle and holding it WOT till you hit 50 is something only the Manson Family would consider doing. If Charlie is reading this, I bet he's jumping up and down with glee. And what about this 55 mph highway speed limit? Don't they realize a child (probably an honor role student) could get lost and wander out onto a highway? That child would get killed. What if that child had several friends following him? They would all get killed. There are highways everywhere. This is simply mass bloody carnage waiting to happen.

      I know I haven't checked all the facts, wasn't there myself and have fabricated my own conclusions, but in my mind, I'm convinced I am right and all the facts in the world aren't going to change that.
