Not sure if the general Intrepid owner pool is getting older, or the overall political correctness shift these days, but, back when I joined in 04, this section was a lot more active...
To the OP, street racing is dangerous, no doubt about it. That having been said, how many car guys haven't "punched it" on the street? Important thing is knowing when to stop. I never get out of 1st in these situations - 45mph won't kill anybody.
A good friend of mine had a 1995 BMW 530i (3.0 V8). I raced him once, no it wasn't on a track, but a deserted stretch of highway. I'm stock except for removal of spare tire / jack (70lbs), and ultra light Mustang rims (44lbs w/ tire). We were pretty even, and I'd pull a length or so every time he shifted, at 125 mph I was couple lengths ahead.
