We don't have Koreans here
Only Vietnamese
They smell weird
And don't have nice cars

>See if they pick up the challenge

Though even if they do it'l be a short drag race at best. For actual street racing? idk man. Any car enthusiast clubs near you? get enough people with fast cars and a common interest together and eventually there's going to be a fucking race.

Idk. I mean I live about 30 miles from Austin. The only car enthusiast clubs I know of are like, Veteran's day car shows and stuff like that.

I mean, I could keep racing my girlfriend down Hwy 21 but I'd rather not put her life in danger like that. She's a lot more reckless in that Hyundai then I am in my GT.

This might be a dumb question but insofar as the red light racing... How the fuck do you know who won? I mean I'm assuming most of the time there isn't a finish line established.

Red light racing is very ambiguous. If you manage to pull ahead and keep your lead until the other guy keeps up, you reach another light, or traffic interferes with your race, it is generally considered that you "won" Because you have managed to keep your lead until an outside factor plays in. Really though, it is not very competitive at all, and is done much more for fun than anything else. Win or lose.

Generally though it is the first person who backs off who is considered a loser. But, that is not always the case. Sadly if you live in a flat area where most of the roads are in a flat grid-like pattern, chances are you won't be running into any enthusiast clubs, I'm sorry to say. That is a product of the environment. People who like to race prefer twisty roads and such. Do you have any hills or mountains you'd be able to drive to? Austin TX seems like it is smack-dab in the middle of the great plains so I'm doubtful.

I live in Michigan so I suffer from the same problem, but I can still find a few people on the coastal roads which are all very twisty. And if I head up north there's some small mountains. But that's a good 3-4 hour drive to get there.

Honestly I would looks into track days and such. Where local racing tracks allow people on there to just drive. Racing usually isn't allowed but, they have a hard time telling if two people are racing or just "driving very fast in the same direction."

I wish you luck, dude. But unfortunately I have to say that street racing is pretty goddamned rare. You have to be at the right place at the right time to even have a hope of finding it.

That feel when here in Europe getting to my workplace is like running the Nurburgring.

Austin Proper is relatively flat, but the area immediately outside it that I live in is referred to as the "Lost Pines" (although there aren't many trees left due to the 2011 Bastrop County Complex fires.) Anyway, the portion of Hwy 21 that my girlfriend and I race is pretty hilly and curvy. Enough to make me a little nervous even though I've known these roads all my life. The problem is, there aren't really any towns out here. The ones that exist are your stereotypical conservative small towns. Although now I'm wondering if there are people from Austin that come out here to race...

Guess I'm just going to have to look a little harder for car clubs. There are some people out here that like to race trucks, but I feel like that's a different beast.

You can't race bikes so that when you cross into someone's lane, you get fucked up instead of both people? Racing on curvy roads and switchbacks requires you to use the entire road if you want to be competitive. Someone will and someone will get ran over or injured/killed. There is a reason race tracks exist and racing is illegal on public roadways.

define what it is exactly what you want from "street racing"?

Street racing is stupid, join an autocross club or look into open track days. If you really must street race, scour facebook for your local car clubs. Trust me, theyre there.

Well, they used to have a team sitting at the bottom/top of the hill as well as guys on the blind corners with radios/cell phones/walkie-talkies to warn when a car was entering the track and at roughly what corner that car was at. Problem is: doing that nowadays is like lighting off flares and putting up a sign that says "suspicious activity here, please send cops."

Like everyone else is saying, street racing is cool, on paper. But in reality it is dumb as shit. All you are doing is risking your life and the lives of others to race on a sub-par track at best.

Find a track day, get into amateur races, work on getting your racing license.

Do you have any drag-strips near you? The one in my small town is active every Friday and Saturday, open for public use. You race the quarter mile in whatever shitheap you can manage to slog onto the tarmac. Good fun and imo one of the best ways to meet other car enthusiasts because all you do in between your turns on the strip is basically sit in a giant parking lot talking to other people there to drag race. And it is racing, too, you're up against vehicles roughly similar to yours. For bragging rights only, obviously.

Yeah there's a reason why meth is illegal too. I mean I don't do meth but I like to race because I'm addicted to that particular adrenaline/endorphin rush.
