if you could legally use a car in a fun way then there wouldn't be a need for illegal racing.

ps I forgot about going to the dunes, but you need something that can actually drive there.

I wish there were more opportunities for younger drivers to race LEGALLY. I haven't really had any luck finding a junior racing league in MI...
One word: Karting.

Exactly. Which is why I suggested the karting....

Honestly, I've considered the shift-kart idea. It looks fun.

I did the highway once at 140 mph - well, that's what my older brother said. I was talking to him so was not looking at dial - he must have been frighten!

divide by 8, multiply by 5, so roughly 94MPH.

I disagree wholeheartedly...I am by no means saying that track days are a bad thing, however the do nothing to quell the need for the average teenager to "prove something" everytime they pull up next to another car at a stoplight... Hell I have had teens launch hard next to me in minivans and SUVs... 9 times out of 10 it is some guy with a girl in the front seat.

Track days may provide a place for the enthusiasts to have a good time, however they do not provide the day to day one-upmanship that causes most impromptu street races.


I think that the mentality towards racing should be similar to that of the use of firearms...If you are responsible enough as a teen, then great...if not, then you probably should wait until you reach such an age where you can make sound decisions for yourself. Unfortunately, most people start driving at an age where this responsibility is least likely to be found.

The Kart idea is great because it can expose people to the idea of what is ok and what isn't in a race setting at a young age... you have to get those ideas into someone before they reach those teen years where the average human brain magically gets switched to the "off" setting.

Being I don't have that kind of a personality that will never be a problem.

I agree wholeheartedly... most adults I know think I am very mature for my age. My parents trust me to go hunting and they trust me on my atv so I don't think convincing them to let me race/have fun in a legal setting would be all that hard. (if it was my car I was using that is)

I agree on this too. I have been go-karting before and I am actually building a go kart in my basement (it doesn't have multiple gears ) and like I said I have an atv and would love to get a dirt bike and/or a snowmobile.

Even though I'm not going to join an autocross club, go to the dunes/offroad, or go drag racing anytime soon I'm relatively certain that once I'm older and can afford to that I will get into that kind of thing.

.... but you wanted to build a turbo Aveo.

That, and reading your user title.... implies otherwise.

no I wanted to know whether it was possible and whether practical. I think it's safe to say it isn't.
