Shiat! It's all bout dem remz homie. My car is slow, and I know it. Only "appearance mods" I have are the wheels and the MT stickers, if you want to call that a mod, or appearance related, yet I still get people messing with me all the time.

I sat and kept my mouth shut and tried not to crack up.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that conversation. Too bad you didn't record it.

I've seen one do a low 10 at the track. It raced the UTCC 300c from Virginia I think, also FAST.

I say tires, suspension and brakes first, then add the powah. If you have any money left, you should save it to go on a cruise.

I should clarify: function before form.
I actually put the Hawks and RS2s on the car first, but that's because everything was badly worn when I bought the car. I'm trying to get the hardware sorted to install the nearly new Bilsteins I just picked up on CL. Maintenance stuff first to prepare for the turbo, not bodykits and fart cans.

Wouldn't have to be a fly on the wall, they were yelling across the class at each other for 15 minutes before the class started. Not only was their conversation awesome, but they wanted people to hear how awesome they were. The guy with the Jetta actually said he was 7-0 at the street races, said he beat some B18 Integras, some other typical ricer cars, or cars usually of topic with ricers. I had to turn my head at that comment so I could smile.

I had just had to update this story. I got a good laugh out of them today while we were waiting in the hallway at school for a class to let out from a test. Apparently the one with the Sentra is "burning through clutches like weed" and has gone through 5 in 80k miles, and his car sounds mean when he hits VTEC (of course, not on a Sentra, some other kind of variable valve timing. He also has to fight torque steer with his wrong wheel drive **** mobile, and said he spins through 3rd and nearly hits mailboxes (shouldn't be doing that in an area with mailboxes anyway, and that might be the cause for his clutch wear) and he has ripped the right side suspension out by hitting a curb from driving like a douche. I just stood there smirking and trying to not laugh in their faces. Both of them still try and **** with me any time they see me on the road, and I have never spoken to either nor have I ever driven aggressively around them. They must have ***** envy for my 100hp *** mobile.

I think everyone has those **** in their life. I know I do, at least every other semester.

Once I hit the bang bang in the parking lot so they wet their pants. Guess who weaved in and out of traffic to follow me.

I was at a store last night, and some shady lookin "homie" came up to my ride while I had the hood popped, to turn the boost controller down... and the first things that came out of his mouth...

"DAAMNNNN... is that a turbo, bro? Shiieett, I am currently want to put one in my CIVIC over there *he points to a POS*." and then goes "...I bet there is alot of money that has gone into this, huh?" My spidy senses tingled and a quick reply came out of my mouth like this... "Nah, the real money goes into the GPS tracking alarm system, and the concealed .45 semi-auto thats uder this sweatshirt."


He said after "ahhh, well nice ride but I gotta roll."

Reno. Everyone has a gun, except idiot criminals.

Speaking from personal experience this is the type of response that you need to have whenever anyone is thinking of ******* with you. Be aggressive in a positive assertive fashion and let them know that you will harm them if they try to harm you. Many thugs and bullies just predate upon the weak, the vulnerable, and most of all those that will just roll over and not even try to fight back. Even a badass wants as little trouble as possible and doesn't want to get hurt.

100% bullsh....true

The findings of a study were shared with us during the class portion of the CHL program. They showed video of random people walking down the street to convicts who had a history of armed robbery, and asked them to identify who they would try and hold up, and who they wouldn't.

Turns out things like size, sex, or dress had nothing to do with it. They usually stayed away from ANYONE that carried themselves confidently and looked alert. This is why they tell you to be aware of your surroundings, not just to identify threats, but because it also identifies you to them as someone that is paying attention, and with whom they'll lose the element of surprise and position.

Crooks do prey on the weak. Never be timid or unsure when approached. Have an answer ready, and be assertive. People will leave you alone.

Years ago before I ever even owned a handgun I was at a shady gas station when approached by someone who supposedly wanted a ride. He kept asking me why I was there, where I was going, all the way to whose car it was.

I answered firmly and directly, and continued to change body positions when it appeared he was trying to work his way between me and the driver's side door. Some things I told him were none of his business, and then got to the point where I told him to get out of my space because I was conducting a transaction, and that I'd pick him up in front of the store where lit if I wanted to give him a ride.

I did give him a ride to where he was asking, since I was feeling charitable that day, and it was on the way. I kept looking directly at him every time he spoke and nearly shouting my replies at him. He must have decided I wasn't an easy target, because when I dropped him off at his supposed place of hire, he waited till I pulled away, then walked right back to the street.

Try driving a fully caged, gutted Miata around town. It's at least 10x worse.
