Home  \  Asian Imports  \  proud to b a "ricer"

ok people i just wanna know what you think. recently as some of you know, i asked for help on my acura integra, and some people starting tlking **** about street racers. Now i dont think i am fast and furious, but im proud to race my car on the streets whenever i can. So i wanna know... Why is there so much hating here?what do some of you have against "ricers" :evil: i dont think thats something bad, if you dont like it then dont do it and dont hate people that do it. being sincere, dont you guys have ever felt the need to run your car on a sunday afternoon when ure coming home from college?:ohcrap: , i think you do,but the difference is that when i feel like it i dont repress it,i let it out the only way i know how.:thumbs:

Also, i wanna know what u think a ricer is

Are we talking about bolting ugly crap on your car or street racing?

People with bad taste bolt ugly stuff on their cars, idiots street race, and if you do both then you're pretty much the scum of the automotive world. I can't htink of anyone worse anyway.

A ricer (to me) is someone who puts on a huge wing, fart can, ground effects, etc, and then they claim that it takes the quarter in 8 seconds.

Street-racing is stupid, no matter what kind of car you use. I don't care if you're the greatest driver in the tri-state area. You can go race on a track, that's why laws were made to tell you how fast you can drive. Believe it or not, even you can crash a car when you're racing.

Here's a real-life story that I heard a couple of months ago. A man immigrated from India to Toronto, Ontario. He worked as a Taxi driver, long hours--he would work 14 hour days, trying to save some money so that he could send to his family back in India so that they could join him. One day, a couple of teens are street racing in Mercedes and Lexi that their parents had bought for them. The kids are racing downtown. Imagine a busy street, lots of people on the sidewalk, and cars parked on the side of the street. The kids were doing over 80 in an area where the speed limit is 40, and they fly through a red light. The taxi driver is crossing the street, and the kids, unable to stop, hit him on the side. The taxi driver dies on the spot, and the kid that crashed the car (and his passengers) are fine, with just some minor scratches.

I don't care if you want to race on the street. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW. Just because I want to punch a cop that just gave me a ticket, doesn't mean I should do it. Honestly, I think anyone who is a street-racer should be castrated.

To me ricer is more of an attitude...like yours for example "I was runnin on the streets with other dudes when I was only 14"

Street racing is really cool. Nothing quite like the feeling you get when you wrap your boy-racer/chavmobil round a lamp post.

There's really no point in carrying on in thread as it's only going to go one way...

well, it is an attitude. is being proud of getting away with it and, what can i say i like it man

posted by  darktrojan

Basically, street racing to you is the equivalent of doing acid?

posted by  chris_knows

ummm, kind of.... but in a healthy way........... more like ecstacy, well.... not that great, but really close to it

Haha wow...ok you're not worth my time, have a nice life in the slammer bro.

Is this thread for real? Chris, what's that Albert Einstein quote you showed me? Might as well PM it to rice-boy over here.

Keep street racing your Dad's Corolla. :laughing:

posted by  Nissan_Altima

Your not a real racer cause your car is a piece of shit and extremely slow, and street racing in a corrola...isn't. Its too ****ing slow.

posted by  Enthusiast

hahaha man, i dont have a corolla, i have an acura integra gsr, and i raced the corolla when i was 14 yrs old, in Costa Rica

posted by  darktrojan

haha ive been there.. only for 2 months bcuz i was drunk and got in a fight....

posted by  darktrojan

Haha Im aware. You think your gsr is fast though, huh? Your retarded, its slow and not worth modding.

I hope the timing belt/chain snaps and that motor is and interfernce engine and all your sweet valves kiss your bitchin pistons and the world can be rid of one more slow car with a smart guy behind the wheel.

posted by  Enthusiast

well if thats how you think... then i wouldnt mind going like that. at least i would go doing what i love... better than dying old and tired. and u know what i dont care about people saying shit anymore, whatever u or any ashole says, its not gonna change nothing, u can only wish 4 that to happen. I whish to win the lotto, i wish to find a hidden treasure too. the point is wish all u want, the one who makes the difference its me....:fu:

posted by  darktrojan

hey there are real enthusiasts like myself that have slow cars i take offence to that lol

seriously its so annoying to see these ricers blowin by me all the time and they turn their 4-ways on to show how "fast and furious" they are...stupid rice burners lol

posted by  newyorker

Im aware. Some very knowledgeable car guys drive the slowest freakin cars. A good buddy of mine knows his shit when it comes to cars, and does alot of work on friends cars but he drove the SLOWEST 93 camry.

posted by  Enthusiast

A ricer is a dumbass. A dumbass ricer is someone who thinks their slow car is fast.

Why all the hate? Because we all do stupid things from time to time, but we're not proud of it, nor do we advocate others to do it. IIRC a month ago there were two seperate incidents in the same state (California I think) that both happened within 24 hrs where in each street racers lost control abd hit an oncoming car, killing the driver and passengers of the car that was just driving, not racing. About 5 completely innocent people were killed way before their time, all in the same area, in the same day. If you crash and burn, I don't care. If you're endangering my grandma on the way home from the bingo hall, it's not just your problem any more. Grow some balls and become a man, not some immature bitch.

i wouldn't talk much

i hate ricers. hence why i built the car i built. it is everything against what ricers believe in. american and v8.

posted by  glagon1979

I've seen plenty of riced out Mustangs and Camaros. You can be anti-rice in a 4banger import. Just mod the hell out of your car to make it fast, but do nothing to the outside.

Having a body kit isnt necisarilly rice...depends on the car.

My buddys friend has an Altezza(..well altezza badged car) With a clean body kit and 17 inch chrome wheels..and it its actualy prety nice

But having a yellow car, black hoot, clear tailights and park bench spoiler looks really shitteh

Why wouldnt you talk much...im not a ricer

posted by  newyorker

man this forums full of stereotypical idiots

posted by  GreekWarrior

not around here they don't. here, its just the steriotypical 4 cyl honda with wheels that cost more than the car and stupid looking body mods. i will give some import enthusiasts a lot of credit though. there are some quick ones that would suprize the hell outta you rolling around here. i'm not dissing 4 cyl cars in any way. i've owned 2 88-91 civic hatchbacks (one with a 1.8 swap) and would own another. great on gas and fun to drive, but i never went around spilling the usuall "you got 4 more cyl than i do, its not fair" bullshit. those are the words of a ricer.

Like chris said..I know certain people who have paid thousands for authentic Mugen, or Spoon, etc. wheels, most now just go with Rota since they make a replica of almost every other hot wheel

Spoon SW388, IIRC no longer made, and costs in the 1000s to buy a set
http://www.tokyo-express.co.uk/spoon/sw388.jpg

Rota Slipstream, made by Rota, and Nippon as a knockoff of Rota (knockoff of a knockoff lol), $400 for a set

The people that get the authentic ones are usually the real JDM fanboys over in Cali

Thousands, and the look like shit lol.

etc.etc....JDM is a style of its own really

posted by  newyorker

Those look better/more expensive, but the previous ones looked like $300 wheels at best.

posted by  chris_knows

The thing with the SW388 is that its VERY light...15x6 is like 12lbs a pop, thats a good weight

Here is more JDM goodness
