OK, so every friday night the youth of north houston hold a car meet. It used to be great but it seem s the owners of our favorite vacant shopping center dont appreciate the custom rubber paint job weve applied to their huge parking lot, so the sheriffs dept seems to kick us out sooner and sooner every week. The saying is true, " It only takes a few ppl to ruin everybodies good time" imo its dumb to kick us out (imagine a jar of bees, now shake it up and open the lid) its creates chaos on the freeway 3-4 exits in either direction. A couple of us have a designated "Safe spot" we roll too. we keep it hush hush. Well this weekend i caught the attention of a group of other imports including a 2011 lancer MR. and a couple honda and acuras maybe 7 total cars. Its like let the wise cracks begin. I overhear some pretty dumb stuff. So being the gentlemen i am I decide to walk over and compliment whatever the f**k i see first just to break the ice and see who these guys were. they seemed cool just ignorant. so i tell them after awhile where to meet when the cops show up. I tell them to be sure to keep up. Laughs all around. so it happens we wait for the drunk cowboys in big trucks to leave and im gone,we all know where to go. im zoned, I get outta the underpass first heavily pursued by the MR and a trail of his buddies. Well with a lil depth perception and precision tiptronic skills:rolleyes: Oh and evverrrr ssooo stiiicckkyy falken ZE's only the MR (DUH) was in front of me at A HIGH RATE OF SPEED (BOOM KING) ( at 2:30 am of course almost no traffic) for our 1o mile journey. We even encountered a scion that decided to join and didnt do bad but i still wouldn let anyone pass. We get their safely and park. wait for it wait for it..... " whats under your hood? you juicin?(idiot) Man im not gonna lie i thought that car was a peice of shit, (thx)" This was a bit more intense but this happens quite often. ( NOT THE RACING PART, i know its wrong but give me a break pride was at stake ) I love it. Hows everyone elses experiences benn?

I had a hard time reading this post. I just hope you don't talk like you type in real life because "street cred" would be the least of your worries. I'm not going to comment very much on the parts I could make out of you racing and evading cops. It's pretty self-explanatory, although other members might not be so kind. I do recall a thread somewhere on this forum getting locked because a member boasted about breaking the speed limit.

Worst case scenario is that the cops could even show up at your door. There was a 19 year old "kid" in Vaughn Ontario who boasted on an online BMW forum about doing 140 km/h in a 40 zone in his M5. Cops showed up at his door one day, took his car and he lost his license. I was young once too but to me street cred is not more important than your life or getting a criminal charge or losing your car and license. People don't buy Kia Forte's for street cred. That's why they have 1000 cc sport bikes.

Ok man if your gonna comment and talk down on people dont comment at all. If you have a hard time reading this maybe its cause your stupid. I don need you to notify me if the risk of my own decisions like a referee. I realize people could be hurt by street racing and seldomly do it. Screw you on your comment on how i speak/type, you dont know me so KEEP IT TO YOURSELF and move on to another thread. i wont even waste my time trying to insult you cause i have no idea of who you are or how you live. But i could only imagine.
Stuff like this doesnt make me angry Im a really nice guy, but im not gonna stand for someone trying to make me look stupid! Do me a favor and don even read my sh** (Sorry to everyone else who may think im out of line)

Not to really jump in this, but he was just playing around. and as far as your speeding, he just mentioned that on another forum this is what happend, He never TOLD you that you should stop talking about your experiences. Any ways back to topic.
I was driving along behind my cousin who drives the nice new Nissan Maxima which produces roughly 290 if im correct. he wanted to play cat and mouse (within the posted speed limits) and he was quite shocked at how well my forte kept up, that is until we came back to my house and picked up my '97 Honda CiviC(133 at the wheels, not a whole lot done to it), which happened to keep up and pass him, needless to say, he was PISSED, he now has a new found respect for 4 bangers. So what did he do,BOUGHT A FORTE HAHAHAH

I hit 148 and I ran out of room I was on the highway did a 40 roll with the new Mazda hatch Turbo. Might of been a Mazda speed 3. He had boost lag from the start I took off on him. Shift into 3rd and he caught me. Just about at 7k I was catching up he shift again. Booooooost lag I'm like o yes! I was at 7800rpm and had to change gears so I fail short. I just keept trying to keep up waiting to see if the Mazda's governer kick in so I can catch up. Never happened.

Thanks for sharing your story.. It's that kind of reaction that people give us that makes us so proud of our cars.

As for everyone else here nagging Randygg about his speeding comments,
I'm sure you all have sped to some degree too, otherwise you'd have bought an oldsmobile.

Give the guy a break and let him tell a story without crapping on him.

It isn't quite the same as some of the street racing stories that were here before.

Now that being said, try to keep talk of illegal activities to an absolute minimum here. I don't want to be branded as a leadfoot forte owner.

There's gotta be more to that story. Someone doesn't get their license taken and their car impounded over a forum post. I did 340 mph in a school zone yesterday in Oregon. Please arrest me so I can sue the shit out of your agency.

Must've installed an electric supercharger, a turbonator, and an ebay chip to get that kind of power?

Street cred, what is this f**ken Need for Speed?

Don't mean to hijack the original topic of this thread but since some of the replies have been focused on my statement regarding the kid being arrested for boasting about breaking the law on an online forum, here is one actual article about it: Speeding BMW driver convicted after online boast

Just because it's social media and freedom of speech doesn't mean Big Brother ain't watching. Openly brag or admit to breaking the law, whether it's on an online forum, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc., don't be surprised one day that the boys in blue come knocking on your door. Just do a search on google and you'll find many examples of people getting in trouble after posting their exploits on YouTube or Facebook. I remember some kids posting a street racing video on YouTube and then guess who showed up at their doors one day with the incriminating evidence.

I'm not trying to discourage anyone from taking in pride in their cars and posting about it. The point of my original reply was to show that the precedent has been set for people being caught by boasting about illegal activities online. Anyways, I apologize again for distracting this thread away from the original topic and question of the poster. It's only fair that since he started the thread, it should be given proper focus whether you agree with his points or not. Mods, please feel free to move my reply to a new thread if you feel it warrants.

LOL, only in Canada. In America the cop has to witness the speeding infraction. It didn't help that the guy plead guilty in court either. I'll assume that he could've beat that charge if he would've plead not guilty. I mean, there was no evidence on tape. :D What a buffoon. You can be prosecuted in the U.S. if you film the act itself and then post it online.

Yes, but it's also stupid to think that the police would take a car out of someone's driveway because he posted on a forum. Not unless you live in North Korea.

Actually, you cant even get in trouble for filming going over the speed limit. Moving violations must be witnessed. I think this is ridiculous.

Ah, the guy in the story made a habit of speeding through residential areas (very uncool), which allowed the police to easily scrounge up several offended witnesses so they could put a time and date to a crime, and then use his statements against him. It's pretty plausible.

I think MOST of the tuner crowds are wise enough to keep their exploits on the super slabs and less populated roads. You get more speed and less cops that way:)

Since the OP did ask for stories:
Several years back I was in my Dodge Stealth (non-turbo) making a spirited run through Orlando (on the interstate) at about a clean hundred miles per hour. It wasn't as fast as I could have gone on that road, but the curves and bridges (the only decent hills in Florida) made it entertaining so I kept it there all the way through.
Two hours later I was home eating dinner with the news on, and there was footage from the tv station's camera tower, panning along showing what looked a heck of a lot like my car ripping down the road. Of course the news people were all appalled and talking trash about this person recklessly driving at what they estimated to be over a hundred miles per hour.
Needless to say, I was freaking shocked! You can lose your license for getting caught doing crap like that. Luckily the video was way too grainy to possitively identify the vehicle, but I made a point to keep it down around 80 through there in the future. Safety first!

...yeah, and what about the guy who recorded himself driving a Ferrari at over 150 on public roads in California? And then actually published the dvd and distributed it? I'm pretty sure he got nailed, too.

So no, it's not "only in Canada" :)

That's what I was getting at. The event in Canada wasn't filmed and the guy was "still" found guilty. An "online claim" and no hard evidence (hard evidence being actually recording the speeding on film and posting it online) wouldn't hold up in a U.S. court of law. I still say the guy could've avoided prosecution in Canada if he would've just plead not guilty though. He could've used a number of excuses to avoid prosecution. For example; "I stayed logged into that forum and someone else in my house must have typed and posted that."
