Shame on you for street racing. If you want to race someone go to the track or strip; both being humbling experiences. If you get caught while street racing you'll end up with a fine that will astonish you. Because of the extreme danger you put innocent people in. Yeah, I have street raced in my younger days (in the early '60's) but the traffic back then was only a fraction of what it is today.

How do you have 400 HP with these mods?

Modifications
all new exaust with chrome tips...throttle response chip...cold air intake...smooth intake duct with intake manifold max air baffle...also several interior and exterior cosmetic upgrades.


Anyway, I'm glad that you beat the overweight land barge, great job! :thumbsup3:

Glad you beat him, but I agree its not worth the risk. You have a Corvette, its no contest, mine puts a smile on my face without doing stupid things. (Although I did play silly bugger with a buddy who has a 68 Mustang all done up, beat him clean, but still not worth the risk). Keep in mind, if you are only going a quarter of a mile, buy a bicycle.

Street racing has been going on since the dawn of the automobile. You just admitted your quilt. You say there was less traffic back then. But, you aren't considering the weight and lack of performance in the suspension and brakes back then (not to mention half the roads you raced were probably dirt roads).:sm_party: I drive my dads 57 Bel Aire around, and the car rides like a big boat, and the four wheel drum brakes are crap. So, you cannot justify it being okay back in 1961 to street race. :duel:
Drive on!!

Keep your posts going!! I like to hear stories like this. You got the car to enjoy, and we, as adults, take risks in a lot of things we do. ALL OF US! Just do you thing.

Yea,street racing can get you into big trouble sir,not only with Law enforcement but with your insurance as well and in some states they can confiscate the vehicle. Oh and if you do go to the track watch out for the SRT 8 Hemi's.

Haven't found anyone that wants to play with the Vette. The 99 WS6 Trans Am that I had before was always being challenged. Took on a GSXR on the freeway one night with the wife, kids, and groceries in the car. His friends laughed at him when he got his butt kicked. If there isn't any traffic why not go ahead and have a little fun. If you really want to race the 1/4 mile then take it to the track and see what it will do. You bought it; you enjoy it but responsibly.
