      I've done it in the past, still go out every weekend when it is dry out. I only run bottom 12's and I feel that it is a little to fast to be racing on the street. My freinds have a 69 nova that does 8.60's and there is no way in hell I would make a pass on the street in it. I don't think it is the racers as much as what happens when traffic dosen't see you. About 3 weeks ago there was an accident where a 13 year old kid was hit by a spectators car at the street races. The kid is ok but it is further proof that you have to watch everything around you.
      Coming at you live from the birthplace of GM,Flint,Mi. Where your car is worth more than the property it's parked on.
