    The way things need to be done from now on

    Post  RoboTron on Wed Feb 01, 2012 6:29 am

    "THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT"


    1. SAFETY FIRST!!!!
    Don't be doing burnouts in parking lots
    Quit racing in the middle of busy public streets

    2. BE RESPECTFUL!!!
    It's a competitve hobby, but not to a point where we need to fight/insult
    Shake hands before and after the race whether you win or lose
    Don't talk a bunch of **** for no apparent reason
    Keep the drama out of it

    3. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!!
    Street racing attracts enough attention, it doesn't need help
    **If you have no vested interest in the race, don't follow the cars just so you can see**
    No need for cheerleaders and wallflowers necessary
    Only go if you have money on the race, or have been invited by the involved parties
    * You can't go to a concert, game or RSD's without paying cover, why is it any different here?
    Take the least amount of cars to the location as possible...not a rap star style convoy
    3-5 people from either party is more than enough to get everything done

    4. YOU CHASE...YOU RACE!!!
    If someone steals the hit and you follow them and lose...you still have to pay

    5. PAY UP!!!
    If you lose, don't argue about. Just pay and move on.
    If you offer a race, it gets accepted, then you back out....you need to pay

    6. QUIT TALKING SO MUCH!!!
    No need to call people out just to sit and argue with them
    Don't call them out then back out of the race
    Don't offer races and talk **** if you're car isn't even running (When it's done I'm gonna...)

    7. LOCKING IN!!!
    This isn't a verbal thing... render the wager to a nuetral party
    If you back out, the money goes to the contender
    Ask your moderators to hold it if you don't trust anyone

    8. BE CONISDERATE!!!
    If someone's car breaks at the line before the race, don't take their money
    If their car has a major malfunction (fire, accident, flat tire), they have enough problems
    don't take their money and offer to help them out
    Maintain some class and integrity

    9. IT'S NOT A CAREER!!!
    If you can't afford losing the wager, then don't race
    Don't use your bill/gas/food money on racing...it's supposed to be spare money

    10. MONEY TALKS!!
    We spend thousands of dollars on our cars...don't offer $50 races
    If all you have is a few bucks, then stay home and come out when you can afford it
    Negotiating is one thing, but there is no reason for 3 hours of arguing

    11. BE FAIR!!!
    Quit "safe racing."
    Quit offering races that are totally one sided
    It's a competitive hobby...so be competitive
    You can't win every single time...there is always someone faster
    If you are asking for legit spots...that's fine, but quit asking for land for your stupidity

    12. GET IN WHERE YOU FIT IN!!!
    No reason for a 15 sec car to call out a 11 sec car and ask for landing strip

    13. AT THE FINISH!!!
    Put a nuetral party at the finish line to make a judgement
    Video can come in handy here too

    14. INTERNET and POST WHORES!!!
    Use the boards for some meaningful communication
    Offer tech help, set races, ask questions, sell stuff or whatever
    but quit talking **** and quit posting if you bring nothing to the table
    Don't mistake shadiness for intelligence

    15. GETTING READY AND PREP!!!
    It's a street race with street cars...not Byron Dragway
    Quit setting the street on fire and hurry up
    Prep work can be done in a couple minutes, not an hour

    16. MOVE ON!!!
    In some places we can congregate and hang out all night, but majority of streets
    aren't like that.
    Get your race done and get out

    17. YOU GOT THE HIT!!!
    If you agree to getting the hit, then you get left lane.
    If you give someone the hit, then steal the hit, you lose...pay up.

    18. SABOTAGE ISN'T TOLERATED
    If you mess with someone's lane.....prepare to get your ass kicked!!!
    If you tamper with someone's car....prepare to get your ass kicked!!!

    19. WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE?!!!
    Remember that we all got in this to have some fun, not make a bunch of rivalries
    Relax a little, take a chance, it's not gonna make you rich or broke

    20. PM's
    These are a great way to communicate without putting your business or someone elses
    business out for public scrutiny. PM people to work out your race or argument

    21. LAST BUT NOT LEAST...(MY FAVORITE)...DRESS CODE!!!
    Youngsters......pull up your pants
    Good looking, single ladies MUST be topless at all races!
    NO SHIRT, NO SHOES, NO PROBLEM

    King of the Streets is a DIG ONLY 1/4 Mile contest for the "Quickest" on the forum.


    ***KOTS***

    RACING RULES:
    ---WE DRAG RACE HERE... NO ROLL RACING!
    ---1/4 Mile!
    ---HEADS UP!
    ---Race Starts off a FLAG, not 3 honks! lol
    ---A CHASE is a RACE!
    ---ONE Race!
    ---On the STREETS.
    ---If you are holding a spot and LOSE a race you simply drop down one spot on the list and the winner takes your spot.

    CALLOUT RULES:
    ---ALL new members must start from the #10 spot and work your way up the list... (no more exceptions, unless you are a Senior Member - see below.)
    ---Race must happen within 2 weeks of the callout or you lose your spot.
    ---Once on the list you can only callout up to two spots above the spot you are currently at. Example, #8 spot can only call out the #7 or #6 spot. *Until you get to the #3 spot, then you may only callout one spot above you (the #2 spot) then if you win you may then advance to racing the #1 spot and become the real KOTS.
    ---If you are on the list and your car breaks or you sell it: let us know so we can take you off! This gives others a chance to get on the list and keep the racing going!
    ---This is the Tampa KOTS list. If someone is called out from another city, the spot holder is not obligated to travel to them, it should be done locally.


    EXCEPTION RULES:
    ---"Senior Members" who are not on the list but known/approved by Moderators: they may have an exception and callout the #5 spot instead of having to start from the bottom, but there are NO free shots at the top spot without working your way up...
    ---If you once held a spot then fell off the list (broken car, stopped racing, ect) you may come back and callout the same # spot that you once held.

    The main rule it to have fun! This list is to promote competition between the 10 quickest cars on the forum, NOT for a few cars to race once and then hold the same title/spot forever.


    TOP CARS:

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.

    I like that king of the streets format, I think that's something that could potentially hype up the streets around here . Get motivated to take out the fastest on the streets .

    Just be careful with posting actual locations. As low-key for the most part forums and Facebook groups are, law enforcement is relentless. I'm sure everyone knows and understands and no one else should have to touch base with this, but just for the newer people, one of the rules is keep your mouth shut. That's possibly one of the most important ones for more than the obvious.

    agreed thats why people will need to PM there numbers and what not and i will organize all the this via phone once i can get a decent bracket of cars to get this going.. i plan on sticking to all the listed rules to try and make this as legit as possible. Honestly is 100% more organized and makes more sense then what has been happening in the past. just gotta get to networking so we can get this going.

    Good to hear. PM's are more exclusive which hopefully will keep things a lot more racing and a lot less running. Organization is good. The amount of times I went out to race and sat there for hours - man, most annoying feeling ever.
