so peeps as above is street racing a thing of the past or what you never/rarely see much happening these days not even a lad
doing a few rings the whole scene seems to be dying/becoming a thing of the past..even the last 2 rallys ive been to were fair
dry THB...no diffin and no racing... ..why are people so boring??? not even many people cruising around at the weekends now Sad

why..?
new guards out and about trying to screw everyone for every tiny little detail on their car, people not being able to afford tax/just not paying because of the state of the roads, no nct, price of petrol, price of tyres, lots of people out of work....

there's a few reasons, for myself not usually heading to much anymore its nct, out of work and guards

So true like, guards these days will pull you for something to do instead of catching people act doing wrong.
only people i ever see driving around these days are people with shitboxes that just started driving,
and as steelballz said costs are high so people rather stay home instead of facing fines or just hassle of guards badgering them

good point raised there, the amount of old ones that probably wouldnt have looked at the raise-the-dead-loud 5door e10 i had before, and now with the levin that looks well and only has a bit of a rumble i get stared at with dirty looks off loads of people.

its fucking ridiculous, anyone thats been in the car with me knows that i do tip on (no point lying about that), but all within the realms of safety.i leave safe space to overtake and pull back in, i dont drive up peoples arses, i let people corss the road often and other cars out.....yet STILL i get more dirty looks now than before.
people's perception of what modified car owners are like has seriously been affected by the cruises of the day, out racing and diffinf/drifting, thinking that we're all dangerous lunatics behind the wheel whenever we drive.its a load of shit, and sorry if it sounds like i'm biased, but in my opinion, honda's having to race nigh-on anyhing on the roads and tinkers in 1.4 typoe R civics with drainpipe exhausts doesnt help....



sorry about the rant though lol

personally i dont see the point in having a moddified car on the road anymore. its just too much hassle with the guards and the nct.

If All ya want is to race just get a track car n head up ta tullow for de day every second sunday and pay 30e n race whoever ya want for a couple hrs. Tis well worth it imo.

hav ta agree with alot of points there..im not biased either but alot of what steelballz said is true bout honda drivers.. not all of them ar at it in fairness.. theres plenty goin on if u knw the rite ppl but wit any da lads i do aten wit its very secretice.. friends hav ben caught because of "friends" informing the gaurds to get them off something they done.. i wont say some of the tings iv witnessed in tipperary lately.. its not for public fourms..
