Angry The "UnderGround" (kinda long and O/T)

This topic might not sit well with some of you ..so be for-warned

Don't know if any of you know about it(if not do not read any further) but there is a HUGE following for UnderGround Street Racing... I am not advocating it but some of the things I have seen is very interesting...mainly the Video's..

1. Speed Video's...There are a number of interesting video's floating around out there....some of the titles...

....LAS VEGAS UNDERGROUND
....808 SPEED (local to us here in hawaii)
....TUCSON TORTURE
....HOUSTON STREET NITES
....NEW YORK ROLLERS
....HOTLANTA
....SAN DIEGO SPEED
....DO'in Denver
are some to name a few..These Video's are about as EXTREME as you want to go...With BIKEs, CARS, TRUCKS...anything with a motor..

They show some Vehicles doin some very illegal things...(speeding, Weaving in and out of traffic..Drag racing and generally doing some really crazy things...Wheelies on bikes doing 80mph...the bikes are the Best(Worst) at breaking the law...)

The Racers meet at night at some remote piece of roadway and go at it...The cops have NO CLUE on whats goin on...there is even footage of cops in some of them where not 10 secs before were runnng at 130 mph...with like 4 people in the car...

Like I say I am not advocating this at all in fact I find it increasingly disturbing...This is one of the reasons why society is like it is...If you happen to see these video's...Be thankful your not a part of it...however I did see 2 Scooby's in the Doin Denver one...

and With SpeedVision Promoting some of these.."Make a video of you breaking the law"
and we will show it on the air, But don't get caught. Be the Winner and you can win a Derek Daly Driving School...

Sorry I am ranting...But where is it going to stop...Our Parents did the same thing...50's and 60's Hot Rods cruising the BLVD's... so it's no different...however there seems to have skipped a generation...(Parents who are in their 40's)...

AnyBody else seen these????

I was a regular attendee from 93-97. Things got REALLY stupid after that. Cars just went to 'floss' their shizz, no one cared about racing. I don't go anymore unless I'm TOTAAALY bored out of my mind and I don't even go to the ones in Carson, Compton or Ontario. We have a little follow out here on Tuesdays and the last time I went nothing, so I don't really bother anymore.

But man, its out there, you could be turning down some street, minding your own and have a ton of super whites shining in your face before you know it.

Ok...What the F*ck is up with that?! If I had any doubts I lived in the most boring part of the country, they're definitely confirmed now. Oh sure we have the "Hampton Beach Cruise" and the "Elm Street Cruise"; both places where everyone and their toothless kid sister hang out. But no underground street racing... closest we get to it is New England Dragway on a wednesday night. God that's depressing.

Scooby,

I don't care what anyone has to say here, I love streetracing. Send me some sites if you know of any that shows of some videos that I can dowload and watch.

Try going to the Philly Street Racing site that just got off the ground recently: http://philly.streetracing.com

Yes, it's dangerous and blah, blah, blah but just like sex, I love it (but not as much). Feel free to send me email to talk about this in further detail if you'd like. I don't speak on this subject here. L8Rs

Hey South,

They got 808 at speed gear, ('course you already know...) Scary part is a couple days ago, i ran into a couple guys who were talking about going filming to submit for the 2nd volume, scary...

Anyway, If you check the 1st vol, i think youcan see chillin's car in one of the tantalus shots. Our scoobies are too easy to notice, The cops would be all over our asses if we did something like that...
