Haha, it's funny this rant was posted because I had a close encounter of the ricer kind the other day. There were 3 cars that looked like mid-90's japanese cars (camry/civic/whatever) and they had the fart cans and the craptastic paint jobs. I pull into the gas station and as I'm getting filled up the convoy of retards pulls out. Of course, they can't just casually enter the highway, they need to make an exit because they're formula 1 drivers. So they pull up to the highway and proceed to cut off cars that are heading at them at about 50-60 mph assuming that they are fast enough to get up to speed before these cars reach them. Then reality kicks in. They floor it making a whole bunch of noise and go nowhere but they come ever so close to losing control of their cars and kind of dance around at low speed between the two lanes while traffic slows down to avoid creating the apocalypse in front of this once peaceful Hess station. And this happened with each and every one of them so I got to sit there and laugh at all 3.

And the best part is that my nearly bone stock 3.4L grand am (also front wheel drive) could probably smoke them. Haha, I can't wait to get my firebird on the road and start playing with the engine and exhaust. I'll be eating rice on a daily basis.

Not rice but just as stupid and annoying. I did notice that the idiots who usually drive the ricers are taking a dump on some other cars now as well. If it's not a japanese car, it's almost always a VW but they do the same thing. Slap a fart can on a small car with a 4 banger and drive like an idiot. It sounds stupid, looks stupid, and just plan IS stupid.

Yeah, us teenagers are pretty retarded when it comes to driving. 

Story semi-related:

One of my friends rear ended a lady the other day.  They pulled off the road into a parking lot to inspect the damage and exchange information for insurance reasons.  Well, my friend forgets to put the car in park before he gets out, and the his car winds up hitting her car yet again.....

Gotta agree there, but as twards the main subject, there are drag strips for a reason, race there, the street is NOT the place to race*rhyme*, and there, you can see how slow your car actually is when you run a 17...

This entire time I have heard nothing but bashing, but what about the cars
that are tuned and actually made to go fast. My friend has a honda del sol he
has a vtec in it and new exhaust and not some stupid fart can either. He
hasn't done anything to make it look different it is just the stock dark green
color it goes fast and sounds good, so you can't just say all "rice" burners
are hideous.

^You sir are wrong, we can, and probably will, I don't like how hondas look in general, so I still prevail.

it's his money, he can do whatever he wants.  If he wants his car to go fast, then by all means, he's allowed to.  However, i would have gotten something a little more versatile, for the money he spent on his Del Sol.

Suppose it is all personal preference but really his car gets good gas mileage
goes fast and will run forever so you can't really complain.

Better than the simple "rice burner" exhausts being slapped on civics and such; are cars that usually carry a better potential at being a tuner car(RSX's and the like)  that have an owner that thinks they are racing cars right out of the show room. It's almost sad sometimes.

I hate idiots with civics and while I understand a Focus is close to a domestic version of the civic but I still love my SVT, even if its a 4 cylinder. Of course this is only temporary until I make the money for an SVT Cobra. I can respect 4 cylinders more but they still dont come close to an American V8.

Im just happy I can still smoke those pieces of jap-crap.

lol @ this entire thread...

For all of you V8>everything people, it's not about the engine, it's about the builder, and then the driver. Don't kid yourself-I've seen four bangers outrun plenty of V8's.

And that's coming from a person who prefers American V8's over basically anything. I've never even owned a rice burner. But I've had my tail end handed to me by a few.

QFT. Just look at the WRX, that's a 4 banger that will smoke a lot of 8's. I don't mind rice burners, if they are tastefully done.

Me too, if money is no object. But for like 25 grand, you can have a mustang that goes pretty good and has a lot of ponies. Of course if you had a lot to spend, it would be import no question-but most people don't have 150k to drop on a car, and if you want something fun and sporty for a fraction of the price, there are quite a few cheaper american cars that fit the bill.
