car theory

all show and no go:
aka: ricer, poser etc.
syptoms: excessive exterior mods. i.e. neon, fart can, lowering, vinyl, spinners, body kits.
Side effects: no speed, people dis your car for looking poserish

sleeper:
aka: n/a
syptoms: excessive tuning/ engine work
side effects: people dis your car for being normal.

i personally think sleepers are better, but if done right an all show and no go is acceptable. asang (all show and no go ) are all about looking good, they may not want to street race but liek the scene. or maybe they are into art so they deck out their car.

I just want to know what yall think.

Where's the theory lol?...A sleeper is a car that looks stock but is actually fast and a ricer car refers to an automobile (usually low-cost factory standard) that has the appearance of a customized/high performance car, but possibly with little or no functional modifications, such as improved engine, suspension or brakes...

Someone who's put a 5-foot wing and an unpainted body kit is not a ricer, however. A ricer is someone who does that and claims their car is faster from it. We've went through this before lol...

I just want to know what yall think.

I think it's pretty damn narrowminded. And pretty limited. Why is it either/or? Why woudl you say it's either all show and no go, or all go and no show? Why can't there be fast cars that also look good? Fast cars with visual mods?

And why lable a show car as a poseur? Cars like this arent' poseurs, but ther e are thousands of hours in visual mods...







You know, I'm SO tired of kids showing up on internet message boards and saying, "look here. I've got it all figured out. If it isn't a fast race car, it's a worthless poseur. If it isn't my favorite kind of car, it's junk. I've got labels for everything. What do you think?"

ChrisV has it all summed up, although there's exceptions to the rule (in the UK atleast.....I hate boy races, lol)

Yeah, you're a kid that requires yor CAR to provide your testosterone because you can't yet.

Wait until you grow up. Look at the cars i pictured. Al of them work of art that have nothing to do with going fast. I love fast cars, too, and have built many. I've also built a lot of cars for their artistic qualities, and I HATE punkass kids like you insulting them because they aren't about going fast.

Look at my truck, 100hp and 130 lb ft of torque, I'm mainly doing cosmetic things so that it kinda makes up for it, plus its personalization when you modify a car, make it how you want it, except most kids these days (and i know many) only do it because everyone does it and its in the movies.

those cars you posted are awesome, but i wasn't reffering to those. the cars i was reffering to the car that have primered body kits, euros, spoiler, and a fart can to make it sound good because there is nothing under the hood. they did none of the work themselves. im no mechanic so when i get a car i am going to have a mechanic friend HELP me and i am going the performance first route.

i also said that there is nothign wrong with doing the ricer thing right. if you dont want to race but like the look fine. like kids who were b-ball shoes and jerseys. they dont play but like the look.

i didn't narrow it down to between these two, i just brought up two. read first please

im sorry if this is an old topic im kind of a noob to these forums.
