Stupid @$$ Rice-Boys MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One fine afternoon, i was cruising around in my honda accord, and i pulled up to this intersection. :smoke: Then, i see some punk kid in his purple Geo Prizim, and what did it have?? Well, some cheap wal-mart spinners, a bean can muffler, some tint windows, and as it rolled by, i noticed it said GT-R on it, u know, kinda like how they put it on the Skyline GT-R. So im like, wtf??!!?? Geo doesn't make a Prizim GT-R it doesn't even make cars anymore!!! :screwy: I laughed and drove off, with it fresh in my mind, that even if u want your car just to only look fast, then u should know a lil bit about what decal goes with which car :orglaugh: It's the same with many ppl :tard: they think they got pimpin cars, when they put some cheap shit on it and they think its' all fast and shit, but it's not. Like, i also saw a Prizm with a Type-R sticker on it (uhhh okay) :laughing: and a Toyota Paseo with a VTEC sticker (duh). AN IDENTITY CRISIS IS AMONG US EVERYONE!!! :ohcrap: I'll leave you with this last, but not least, note: Acura never made a 2nd gen Integra Type R variant. That was reserved for the 3rd gen. But stupid ppl :stupid: put those damn Type R stickers on every car they could find!!
i could only imagine......
Does anybody else see this kinda stuff where they live :ticking:
There's a car audio shop in front of my neighborhood so I see a whole bunch of rice cars getting oversized speakers.
all the time. first example is a dark blue Daewoo that lives around the area and has a GT-R sticker and a pep boys muffler. i flick him off everytime i see him, and at the start he would say that my car couldnt move cuz it was so big (raced him and his little civic friend 3 times and they got tired of the abuse), so now he just makes a turn asap whenever im next to him.
In my opinion these ppl give ppl with REAL rice rockets a bad name. So to
all who misplace VTEC, type R, GTR, and symbols of performance and
innovation i give u this!! :fu:
:clap: :rock: praise those who drive real import peformance cars, and those who keep the stickers where they should be. On the correct car :clap: :rock:
I have a VTEC sticker on my RSX Type-S. It may be ricing but at least its not misplaced. :laughing:
kinda yeh.... but not as bad as that!
I have a Powered by Honda sticker on my BMW...
I'll take a pic of it tonight when I get home...
bav u got to be kidding me right? even i wouldnt put that on a beemer... why did you do that? to get laughed at? seriously, i dont believe you.
Ok you are touching on one of my pet peaves......... Click here for my opinion (http://www.car-forums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=2888&highlight=peave) Ok it really bothers me too. For example went into Milwaukee for an interview. Drving home with my mom we pull up to a stop light and a guy in a dodge neon with a fart cannon, that weird latino writing on the windsheild and a wing that he prob took off of an airplane rolls up next to me. I was driving my Mom Denali with her in it. He reaves his engine.........I laugh.........we go at it. Cause and point...... a 7000lb Denali smoked his lil piece of shit and my mom yelled at me for being an ass. But I got a damn good feeling from it.
As a joke. I've received a few nice smiles and a few chuckles from people
It's not permanent!
And the ricers know not to mess with the eta powered BMW! :wink2:
really depends, My integra is now blue with a gt spoiler, I dont think its ricey at all because the down force is noticable and its not 5ft freekin high. Ricey to me is like the >prizm< :laughing: or any cheap ass car that you try to make look "cooL". This guy next door had a wooden spoiler he made himself (i kid you not), and shiney plastic spinner hub caps with some wingy side skirts and stock front/rear bumper. And of course the cholo writing on the wind shield. Makes me wonder if he's mentally challenged, beacuse I dont know how he could think that looks the least bit good. but he does so good 4 him. I myself am into the more plain Look, Glossy paint, black rims, very mild if any body kit tint and maybe a spoiler. no vinyls for me. It just attracs more attention from cops. and that i DO NOT NEED. So when you see a ricermobile remember these 2 simple steps. Point and laugh.
LOL, I seen a DODGE Caravan... with a Jap. POWER BY HONDA sticker on it and
a big Type R on the rear... and also it had a fart can and fake spinners...
my guess is that it also had a by Tech on it... just to make sure the auto tranny knew when to shift... ;)
...You have no idea, i know someone with a 1996 civic sedan. Its the non V-tec one. He has a SUPER low body kit, made out of plastic and its falling off and he duct tapes it back on and paints the tape white in an attempt to make it blend in. Stupid fart cannon, and second hand rims so scratched up i can find something nicer in a junk yard. And a wing as tall as him. What a piece of crap, thank god i dunt see him much.
this brings me back to my favorite friend Jay once again...... yes, he is
so full of surprises. hes a walking joke to be completely honest..... i
dont see how the hell his gf puts up with him.
anyhow, on to the story. his car is originally a 1992 prelude and now has a 1994 engine (its the same engine, but needed a new one after he blew the old one). anyhow, for SOME odd reason, the car had a V-TEC emblem (still does) on the back. he would swear to me that his v-tec was wrong cuz the car would shift at around 6,000rpms or so (its an auto). i kept telling him his car wasnt v-tec and that it still isnt cuz the v-tec version of the H23 that came to teh states produced its 160hp at the same level than the non v-tec (which is odd, cuz both even make the same power).
he got so mad when he found out that it wasnt v-tec, that he even started swearing that his car was SOHC and would remove his DOHC sticker on the rear (moron.......). yea, he doesnt know those engines didnt have an SOHC brother.
the other thing was that he has a Konig sticker on the right fender, n he says that its the rims that r Konig. if u look at them, they clearly say Honda on them (he has the last gen 5 spoke rims on his car).
the pic is a bit blurry, my ex-gf couldnt take pics even if my life depended on it. but u can just point and laugh at him :P
just wait till i find the other pics i have when he totally crashed the entire right side of his car (and i do mean, all of it, even the rims).
Nah, cuz an RSX Type-S has an i-VTEC motor. It aint ricing
:hi: , it's merely showing off acura/honda's striving to innovate :2cents:
P.S. www.riceboypage.com is THE place that displays riceboys and their rides :mrgreen: this is funny, especially when u see a Honda CRX with a Toyota Racing Development banner on the windsheild :orglaugh: :orglaugh:
He really need to know what hes driving before he drops a new engine in it. poor fella.
Hehe, that's funny. :orglaugh: cuz, i seen a body kit STAPLED on b4, it looked pathetic. Even at the 80 or so mph that medocore stock CRX non-si goes, i still dun think it'll stay on :orglaugh: :orglaugh: :laughing:
That website was the source of an hours worth of entertainment.... I want to start shooting photos of cars around here like that
I was a regular on the Riceboypage forums since '96. The actual forums have
moved however, due to the incredible number of dipsh*tz that would arrive.
What's left there now is a sad reminder of the idiocy that showed up on a
Yes, the ricer phenomenon has been noticed and commented on everywhere for the last decade. It's sad, as it took a good portion of the sport compact scene, the road race enthusiasts, and lumped them together withthe cheezier of the customisation crowd, and soon, ANY sport compact that was modified becaema ricer and was ridiculed. Back in the '70s and early '80s, those of us who were into teh sports compact scene, driving RX3s, SR5 Corollas, BMW 2002s, datsun 510s, and the like, really wished that our favorite cars were more popular instead of the typical musclecar. Unfortunately, the guys that MADE them popular in the late '80s did so by being about as tacky as they could be. And that meant that people made fun of those of us who had actual sport compact race cars, and dual purpose street/autocorss cars (especially if we had the usual SCCA racing sponsor stickers on the cars)
Hey, Inygknok, is your ride the white TOYOTA SUPRA in your signature??
:wink2: what mods do u have on it?? auto/stick??
also, Voda48, your sig is the shiznit
yea thats my ride, its currently broken down. it was bone stock except for
an HKS intercooler and BOV and some half assed 3 inch exhaust that the old
owner put on it.
as soon as i get some money im expecting (HOPEFULLY, in august ill get it), then ill be installing a custom made titanium 3" exhaust, new DP, gonna do some custom work on the turbo manifold, getting a different turbo, a bigger I/C (mine broke, long story), new MHG with arp head studs, shot-peening anything that needs it, port and polish intakes, and doing some custom work on the intake manifold for some IC pipe re-routing, on and some ECU tuning and the fuel system ofc.
still dont know wat i will do with the new clutch and brakes. my friend hasnt found the parts i requested, nor the radiator.
THat is the i wish at this time. But all I got is a lowly mk2 Supra,
nonturbo, auto, the L-type. :sleep:
Now on to the topic. Around where i work there is a mid-90's Toyota Camry with a Honda/Acura i-VTEC sticker on it.
This doesn't get me peeved. Its the the earlyto Mid-90's Chevy Silverado with the "Powered by Chevy" sticker. If you don't know its a chevy, you should own a car, aleast in the states. :evil:
ok, i know this isnt a ricer, but it fits the category... just yesterday i was driving down a freeway on my way home when i saw a OLD ass van, u know those vans that has a lil bed at the back and has curtains around... it was probably an 80's van.. anywaynz, this van had SPINNERS!!! and what still amazed me was, it had a spare spinner at its back door. :drool:
"Ghetto Style Rice & Beans"
hmmm, was the van, like 70s cheech and chong :hi: or late model soccer mom?
Cuz if it's soccer mom, then it'll be called, um, let's see here...
:ohcrap: well, i have no idea what it should be called, so ill leave it up to u :oops: :banghead:
It could also be a redneck trying to look upscale.
yes! it was a cheech and chong van! except a lil cleaner.. maybe late 70's or early 80's.
i was cruzin today and i passed a geo metro with a v-tec sticker on the back and a GT-R sticker on the front... so i raced him, and won by a four car distance. i screamed as i was passing him GT-R my @$$.
Yeah, i see stuff like that all the time. i hate it :screwy: then they give u stupid excuses and sh*t like i am free to do what i want with my car!! :wink2: well, maybe so, but u cant use other manufactures brand, even if the damned car isn't sold here :thumbs:
People i solemnly do swear upon my vehicle's limited powertrain warranty that i have quite possibly seen the most riced-out embarrasing attempt at looking cool. Imagine an old Ford Taurus station wagon with a brown driver's door, shiny baby blue wipers, and the most rusted body i have ever seen painted in a ugly ass red color. Now imagine this car with a set of Walmart hub cap spinners, a spoiler that isnt too big...nope its freakin tiny!!! ive never see a spoiler that looked like it was designed for a shopping cart. this thing was like 2 feet across. Okay now on this car is also stickers of various names and the lights that illuminate the lisence plate and the turning signals are spray painted some color (dont remember). So there u go. Here there are some very terrible ricers. Every day u'll see something really stupid looking.
accord wagon with datins. :laughing:
That's retarted :tard: but i think it's funny :orglaugh: :laughing:
u what funny is, when u drivin u c ricer boys try to race and
when u win, they ignore u or turn to diff street.....
Bad ass cars with *eat your lunch* style engines and *make you go crying home to mommy* track times don't need aftermarket stickers or decals, or whatever. For all of us who can tell the difference between exhaust sound and engine sound- cheers. :D
So you've never seen musclecars with "Holley Equipped," Edelbrock, Hooker
Headers, crane Cames, etc stickers? You know, the kind you get with every
order from Summit Racing?
Cars like this that run around on the street?
You must not be paying to much attention to musclecars, then.
What makes the noise in your exhaust system? Why do rice boys have cars that have hella loud exhaust?
This thread is pretty funny.
Here's some ricey cars I've seen recently:
Intergra LS with body kit and spinners
Stock Toyota Tercel with a supra style spoiler that was higher than the roof
And today I saw a bright red civic with bodykit and bright yellow flames all over the car :screwy:
What is the problem with bodykits? they just make the car look nicer.
I'm not saying that bodykits are bad, I'm saying that the car can look nice but they put something like spinners or flames or stickers on it and it ruins they whole car
Somehow I got the impression that you thought I lived in a cave- maybe a
long, long time ago, in a far away place. I don't know, it could be some
sort of miscommunication. If you didn't get the point of my previous
posting, let me rephrase it for you.
Whoopass engines can be heard inside the cabin of a passenger car or light truck with the windows up and stereo blazin'. People who feel like they need a sticker to motivate strangers to turn down their stereo and put their windows down only to be disappointed by the purring of a straight-stock engine just need to go home and take a razor to the sticker or decal.
You must not be paying much attention to the threads you reply to. If you were, you'd have noticed that the root thread was about goofy ass ricers- ie.- smoking Escorts with Type R stickers and Auto Zone tail fins.
I know, love, and cherish Muscle Cars and hipro engines. My husband and I build them. It is not presumptuous to point out discrepancies between the vehicle and the stickers it sports. It IS, however, presumptuous :drool: to ASS UME that someone has no appreciation of the finer things (Muscle Cars) on the basis of ONE, count IT, ONE posting.
Have a great day. :mrgreen:
LOL thats hilarious! The best car I seen was an old rusty Mercury Topaz that had a "Lincoln" tag on the back in place of the Mercury one. I almost died of laughter on my way to class that morning!
The point is, you made a statement of "fact." When discussing cars and
trying to compare ricers to real performance cars, and you use a statement
ABOUT what you feel are real performance cars, and that statment is wrong,
you're going to get corrected about it. IF you don't want to be corrected
about it, make sure your statement is fact-checked before you hit
The post I quoted before makes it plain that you were forgetting about the kinds of cars I pictured. Now you say you have an appreciation for them. Well, then you should have remembered them before making that particular statement ABOUT them (i.e. "Bad ass cars with *eat your lunch* style engines and *make you go crying home to mommy* track times")
Wouldn't brag about beating a Metro...
The thing I never understood is a lot of cars have variable valve timing. Why does Honda feel the need to? Nissan has VTC, Toyota has VVT-i, and Ford has Zetec. I hate it when people put shit like that on thier car. One thing that gets me is they have to put the Manufacturer or model on the windshield... WTF? Oh and giant wings on a FWD car... yep... makes sooooo much sence...
Ok, you want answeres to ALL that/ We've done them before but here
Cam lobe shape determines how much power is made, and were in teh rpm band it's made. Hp is a function of torqe and rpm, so increasing rpm makes more horsepower. It was like that in the days of the big V8 musclecar in teh '60s and it's lik ethat with small engine cars today. back in teh day, if you wanted to increase hp, the cams generally added power on the top end, but lost low end driveability. On a big V8 engine, you coul dsacrifice some of that low end, as you had so much to start with. But even V8 cars with serious race cams would end up losing all driveability at lower rpms (some made no useable power below 3500 and idfled really badly, if they could idle at all). On a small engine, this effect was worse. If you put a race cam in your BMW 2002 or MG (or like my Fiat), you might gain high rpm power, which was good for racing, but you lost any around town driveabilty you might have had.
So when building an engine, you compromised toward waht you wanted to do with it. You chose a cam profile that either matched teh racing you were doing, or teh daily driving you were doing, or you accepted the tradeoffs of a cam halfway between.
You could advance or retard the timing of the cam a bit for more power or more driveability, but it was a minor amount of change. Still, a few companies used it to help a little bit.
Honda invented a mechanical system where the re were two lobe shapes on one cam, that switched betwen them at a given rpm. Just before the daily driver cam lobe shape stopped making power, the engine switched to th ehigh rpm cam lobe shape, to make more power. And when slowing down, the engine switched back the daily driver cam lobe just before the high rpm cam lost driveability. This would be the equivalent of having a stock cam in your Camaro, and when you punched the gas, a built in mechanic switched out the stock cam for a race cam, seamlessly, then switched it back again when you wanted to drive around! No one had done this before, and it took 10 years before anyone else matched it. newer versions are of course, much more sophisticated, with variable switchovers, more ratios, and changes in timing as well as lobe shape. But it was very important and would have been nice to have back when we were building performance engines before '89.
BTW, Zetec is an engine name, not a system name like VTEC. Most versions of that Ford engine don't have variable timing.
Wings on a FWD car? Well, wings themselves work on a FWD car, just look at any Touring Car racer In road racing. Wings aren't for accellerative traction like they are in drag racing. They are to keep the rear planted in cornering and keep the car stable under braking. Most car bodies generate lift in the rear. Combine that lift with forward weight transfer under braking entering a corner, and you get a recipe for spinning out (or you have to go slower into the corner). Adding a wing keeps teh back from stepping out under braking, allowing you to enter teh corner faster, and use teh brakes harder, thus making the car faster overall (yes, they add drag and reduce top speed by a tiny bit, but that's vastly less important than what they do for cornering speed).
Wings also start woring as soon as the air is flowing over them. The lower the speed you want the wing to work at, the larger it has to be in relation to the mass it has to work against. So big wings arent' for doing 150, big wings are for doing under 80 and not having to slow down for corners.
Wings on the rear also do NOT rotate the car around the rear wheels, thus lifting the front wheels off the ground. It simply doesn't work that way.
Search this site for a more detailed post on wings on FWD cars from me.
ChrisV, if you want good idling, do you want toe cams to retard or advance? And what does bad idling mean? does it mean the rpms go up and down when you are not pressing the gas?
The other day I saw someone with a aluminum (I don't know how to spell it) wing on the back of their civic lx....it was on backwards... :banghead:
:ohcrap: that would require a picture!!!!
would you all agree if i say there are steps for hookin up your car
i mean i have seen cars like nice rims but not lowered, big a$$ wing
but no body kit or juss front body kit and all around stock
If I run into him again i'll get a picture and post it. :laughing:
