Why Did MP81 Close My Thread?

Said he closed my thread because you can't post up street racing, one of the mods has video up of him street racing, even MP81 has vids of him testing his SC on public roads, very fast I might add. Would like an explanation why only mine was closed, Please.

If someone else has a street racing video up, then they shouldnt, but that doesnt mean he has to allow all street videos. Maybe he wasnt aware of the other video or something, Im not sure...Ive seen them lock street racing threads before.

What if someone pulled out in front of him when he's going a lot quicker than normal? Not trying to get something started, close one, close them all

This^^

Personally I do not really care, as for why he closed it only he can answer that. Kyle is pretty fair and very helpful on this forum. Never the less I have been letting some of it go, but if you guys would like to keep complaining about it I can close them all.

I'm with Dustin about my actual feelings on the subject.

However, the reason I closed it is this: the fact that someone posts a street race means that they were obviously not hurt in the incident - however, perhaps someone sees the video and decided they'd like to do that, and something happens...there's a possibility of a lawsuit over that, and I'm sure nobody wants that.

It sucks, but sometimes you just gotta do shit for the greater good, ya know?
