my turbo corrado was the **** and got tons of bitches. I was an idiot when I was young and had that dangerous of a car. I topped it out every night on the way home from work. It was fwd, and still gay.

I don't even bother with ricers. I know I'll win, and that's good enough for me.

I do enjoy pissing off WRX/Evo/Carrera/M3 owners, though.

Luckily I've been seeing NO ragged out cars on the road trying to race me. In fact, I don't even see fast/modded cars anymore. Strange.

Damn Joe, you live really close to me. Like 10 minute drive close. I've even seen the Saturn you mentioned. I hate the car scene down here, for the most part at least. F&F rules everyone's life when it comes to cars.

You know what they say; bottles are for babies, real men get blown.

Why don't you put your location in your sig, then?

That way we all know who's local.

What I learned when I moved to Florida:
If you cut the muffler off your mom's economy/family car it instantly becomes a sports car.

Rubber bump stops are the most aggressive suspension tune available.

It is flashy to spray paint your tiny stock calipers and drums bright colors.

Everyone knows you are modified if you have black soot all over the back of your car from running pig rich.

If you are not naturally blonde you are required to have at least one foreign flag emblem displayed.

Aftermarket bumper covers are not required to be securely fastened at the ends.

Window tint is only available in shades of purple and must have prominent bubbles.

"Old school" is a '88 Civic instead of an '98 Civic.

When lowering a car to the bump stops and adding rims, stock front wheels and tires should be retained.

Large adjustable rear wings are required to keep an Accord firmly on the road at its terminal velocity of 92mph.

It is fashionable to have sparks eminate from the vehicle's underbelly even on improved roadways.

A "Monster Tach" is required for any lowered car with mismatched body panel colors that is missing its muffler.

All bumper covers are to have at least one prominent crack and/or should not match the color of the rest of the car exactly.

You should always disconnect/spray paint/change colors on your tailights to assert that your Honda is different from the identical one sitting right next to it.

My favorite all-time kill is still the E46 M3 I put 5 lengths on from 30 to 120 - I'm sure his wife was thrilled

While I completely believe you, your trap speed puzzles me a bit. it says in your sig you trap 100 (i'm assuming that is on your best pass yet)..however a BONE STOCK sti traps at lest 102 with an average driver. My 05 stage 2 wrx (downpipe+exhaust+ good tune absolutely nothing else) put down [email protected], and the 07 was quite a bit quicker with same mods. we all know a trap speed is a good indicator of what a car will do on the street from a roll, and here you are beating stage 2 sti's which trap at least 105 with a car that traps 5 miles less. 5mph difference in trap is pretty significant. just doesnt make sense

*edit: here at sacramento raceway I have seen many stage 2 sti's put down mid to high 12's with trap speeds over 105. not to mention a couple with just a couple more mods (larger tmic, more boost, wga helper spring) run low 12's at 109......unless you have some slow sti's in so-cal, I just dont understand

too much traffic around these parts to ever get a good race on. Case in point. Raced an Elise the other week from a light. I have no traction in the first two gears at all. He did. By the time I caught traction and started pulling up on him in third we had caught traffic.

haha!

I really haven't notices any NOS around....well...any age group around my area.
I would actually like to see a REAL mod done to a car, versus the younger crowd's gravitation towards ricer tendancies (lights, stickers, and wings)

In my experience, this forum encounters either the slowest STI/EVOs in history, or the worst drivers.

I think kids and the uneducated look at NAWS as a magic juice they spray into the motor to make unlimited HP. It's easier for them to think about than all the mechanical concepts and whatnots of any other way to make power.

naws isnt magic juice? WHAAAA?

but seriously, I think lots of kids use it mostly because its so simple. Fill up a bottle, mount it and plumb it in: really not that hard. Half of them dont do it the right way though, like no controllers/safety precautions/etc and blow their cars up. but hey, for those 5 seconds they are spraying, they are GOD!!!


most of them live a quarter mile at a time too

I haven't been revved at in at least 20 years. Seriously. And I'm in a town of 250K people.
