Default What's with drivers and their rice mobiles?

My friend and I go into town alot on weekends. He has a last gen Firebird Formula with the LS1 and 6 speed. It's also heavily modified and well into the 11s. Anyway every time we are out in the car, guys in rice burners ALWAYS try to race us. He usually doesn't even pay any mind to them since any racing he usually does is at the track, but what are these guys thinking? The cam in the damn thing makes it sound like it's going to die any second at the stoplight and its always some dude in a Civic or Eclipse with a fart can. Why bother trying to race a car that has three times the hp and even more torque? I drive a honda S2000 and I think my car's pretty decent, but there's no way I'd even attempt to run a car like that.

More brass than brains. They figure they're hot stuff and superior drivers, so anyone with an American car is a born loser. Ignore them; they'll end up with a glovebox full of tickets and/or wrapped around a telephone pole. I'm glad your friend saves his racing endeavors for the 'strip.

Basic immaturity. I have a Honda Blackbird and the parallel between what you are experiencing and what I experience with Harley Davidsons is frighteningly similar. My stock bike has 168hp and a top indicated speed that I have personally experienced at 181 mph. When a bike that outweighs me by 150 pounds and produces roughly 80 less horsepower revs it up at the light, I point and laugh at them. They look at me funny as I dance around them in second gear. Just because they 'think' they are bad, doesn't mean they are.

I have a 99 civic thats a daily driver that runs in the 10's, in the 1/4. its heavily modded, has a completly built and sleeved motor and runs 35 lbs. of boost at the track. But I agree with some points you said. I don't understand why people put fart pipes and ridiculous wings, and shove 20's on cars like civics. That was kind of my inspiration for building mine. EVERYBODY tries to rev me and take off on me. I drive it daily at 15 lbs. of boost and 330 hp to the wheels. I've beaten alot of cars and have been beaten. with the 35 lbs i dynoed close to the 500 HP mark. Of course this is not the norm for a civic, or at least one you would see everyday. I have a couple of friends that have supras in the 800-900 HP range, and they deal with that stuff too. some people just don't understand that a muffler DOES NOT give you 100 hp.

Those type of people just got through watching the Fast and the Ferious at their mothers house. Ricers think they can put a HUGE spoiler on their 4 door civic and think its a sports car. Its very embarrassing because they try to race a true sports car and just plain get dusted. Though anyone that encounters a ricer should know that they don't give up. The must pass you in order for them to think they won. They sometimes do what is called a Ricer blow by. Thats when they sneak up on a sports car then down shift once they get close to pass them. I have a rsx type s which is a 4 banger but I do not challenge a v8. ITs just stupid.

Well you might think that their slow however, maybe what you don't know is what's under the hood. See, one of my mechanic friend owns a Mustang GT V8 with a jackson supercharger man that thing had torque and it had like probably over 500HP. He was smoked by a Civic Si. The Si had an turbo charged H22A and only produced about 350HP however with the modifications to the car and interior man that thing was fast. So even if I had a Diablo VTTT I'd still be scared of a hatchback in a way becasue you never know what's unde the hood.

LOL... My G35 just beat a Eclipse rice burner the other day. I usually don't race rice boy but he insulted me by saying that girl can't drive and that a G35 is for shows. I really hate rice boys. So sick and tire of them pulling up next to me and act like their cars are Skyline GTR or something.I also sick and tired of people who have nice cars but don't know how to put it into good use. I beat a Camaro SS once but that was because the dude haven't master a stick yet! He couldn't shift soon enough....haha... So yeah, I wouldn't race any car that I know I wouldn't be able to beat. That will be embarrassing.
