  1. Speed isn't everything to some people.
     
  2. Why? You can't legally use more speed than you already have. It's popintless, from a legal standpoint, to make your car any faster than it is, stock.

    Sure, *we* enjoy it, but we can't, in all fairness, say someone modding for cosmetics first is doing anything more pointless than someone modding for more speed first.

    I don't have to have every car I own be a race car, nor do I have to have ever car I own be a show car. But I see no problem in making any car either one or a combination of both, in any order. that's what makes it a fun hobby. Experinece the hobby the way YOU want to experience it, and don't give anyone else grief for doing it their way. If the vocal ricers would learn that, things wouldn't go so badly for them.
     
  3. If you haven't figured out why rycers are hated by now you are pretty slow. BTW, There is nothing wrong with Corvette styling, dude. Open your eyes.
     
  4. That van is awesome.
     
  5. what ppl don't understand is we make fun of everybody that has more show than go

    in the mid 80s, people would pay money to put 305 TPIs in all kinds of classics, because new, expensive parts must be better, we laughed

    people to this day pick cams to large on purpose, just to get a lopey idle in their "hot rod"

    it's not like we're just picking on imports
    we're picking on anybody that spends money to degrade the quality of a vehicle
     
  6. Ugh, you need to repeat your adolesence period. Otherwise suicide is your unique option.
     
  7. I do not mind that at all. If he loves a certian type of car, for what ever reason, let him. Truthfully if I had ther money I would dump it into my Duster before I bought the 996. I am 100% serious as well. (The things I could do to it with that kind of money!!!) It does not mean it would be a better car than the 996 by any means, but damn, it would be mine and the only one like it on the road. (And I would not have to get it smogged :p ) I personally do not like CRX's, but if he is that passionate about his car, it does not make him a rycer, just a Fan Boy. (Which I am an old 70's MOPAR fan boy through and through)
     
  8. So would I, except not on a CRX. I don't like those, nor do I like Euros as much as I like Japanese cars. Just your own taste, there's nothing wrong with that.
     
  9. Are those people who put M or AMG Body kits on their MB or BMW considered as r!cers too??. I've finally got the meaning of r!cers <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  10. those flying vans are cool lol.
     
  11. anyone know of a site with a lot of pictures of those vans?? i have seen a bunch before, but i have never been able to find a site with more than a handful of pictures. . .
     
  12. its just the fact that he'd prefer a CRX over a 996 TT............ I just don't know how anyone could do that
     
  13. there is a difference between modifying the looks of your car, and #$%#ing up the looks of your car
     
  14. You seem to like my pics, here are a couple more...
     
  15. because of the cherry bomb exhaust tipes worst mod ever. thats why i hate ricers.
     
  16. You'd pull so many chicks with one of those.
     
  17. He he, I've got more than one <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>.
     
  18. Less talking, more pics.
     
  19. I understand THAT you put down people with more show than go. What I don't undestand is the narrowminded attitude that tells WHY you put down someone with more show than go. Not every car HAS to be a race car. It doesn't degrade the "quality" of the vehicle just because it wasn't made to go faster.

    Put down people who made their car slower, or made it look fast and THINK it's faster than everything else. But please, separate them from those of us who enjoy building custom cruisers, too.
     
  20. my examples were clear
    building a custum cruiser is cool
    building one with a 305 TPI and a lumpy cam isn't
     
  21. Your examples? You said: "what ppl don't understand is we make fun of everybody that has more show than go"

    What part of "everybody" excludes those who have custom cruisers that are more show than go? Your use of the word "everybody" overrode any examples, and included those of us who also like custom cruisers that are about style rather than racing. Or that emphasize visual mods over performance ones. Since those cars are about more "show than go" and you said you make fun of "everybody" that has more show than go, how is that *clearly* delineated by your examples?
     
  22. How exactly are you able to take night shots that are so bright? Do you know what camera was used in that 2nd pic?
     
  23. They dont know cars, they thing they know cars. Or they are Just pore and cant pay to get them done up properly. I hate ricers because they look like the real thing but there not, thats wy.

    Got rice got rice asian pride

  25. "Got rice got rice asian pride"
