To me, fat chicks are like ricer cars, they can get you there but I don't want to be seen with em.

according to urbandictionary.com
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Ricer

ricer

(Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt)

A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to):

- Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder
- Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747
- Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool
- Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself
- Bodykit to make the car appear lower, usually accented with chicken wire
- Clear tail lights and corner signals
- A "performace intake"- a tube that feeds cold air to their engine usually located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine)
- Most of these riced cars (a.k.a. rice rockets or rice burners) are imports; Honda Civics, Accords, Integras, CRXs, RSXs, Del Sols Mitsubishi Eclipses, Lancers, Subaru Imprezas, however there are some domestics such as Chevrolet Caviliers, Dodge Neons, Ford Focus; small, slow, economy cars designed specifically to go slow. Please note that some Supras, Skylines, WRX's and other higher performance imports are designed to go fast, and are therfore not always considered rice. It really depends on the severity of the case.

The "ricer" attempts to make their car "performance" by adding the modifications listed above.

-----------------------------------------------

Cuda... according to the red text above.... technically... you're a ricer!

dont make fun of my ride!

Me? Ricer?

How do you figure that?

Argument #1: No import car

#2: I'm pretty sure my U.S. cars haul a$$, just a little.
Most of the mods actually work. (motor quit growin after hood mod, that I'll give ya.)

#3: I don't suck at everything, just RC racing, sorta like you maybe?

Yeah, well...wifey poo won't let me travel much. Good news is there are a few fun races coming up this Summer. Reedy, ROAR Nats, and the TCS Regional. We could get the Pinoy boys together and go over to Goldilocks or something.

Kevin, I was just out there but not with "The Hulk"/green (it's not Barney/purple, ok?)

I ran the Ultimate F1 race Sunday, see, this does belong in the Tamiya thread.
Had a killer day on your asphalt with the F103 on foams.

Been easier for me to get to OCRC to run offroad lately.

I'll get up there to see you guys for some dirt soon, promise.

Talking PracticeLog, Day 2.. The quest for boostedness.

Track Report during practice after finally finding speed in my SPX to rival that of the Tekin in GT2 class..

after returning to the pits for a compare and contrast.

Anonymous Racers: MAN Orlando your car was fast!!
Orlando: Yeah, i did a lil homework and finally figured a way to keep up with you guys.
Anonymous Racers: Yeah your car looked good out there.
Orlando : Yeah, thanks. But you guys could still pull me at the end if i didnt enter the Straightaway correctly.
Anonymous Racers: Yeah, but you had a lil more torque than us. You got a Tekin in the there; dont you?
Orlando: Not, I just put a 10.5 in there with my SPX.
Anonymous Racers: (silent )
Orando: Yeah, I think im gonna ask Fred if i can run the 10.5 with my SPX aginst all the Tekins.
Anonymous Racers: NO, Thats not fair you had more torque than us.
Orlando:


had to post it.. GOOD TIMES!!!

RedBullFIXX; saw an earlier post about considering GT3, the ultimate sedan-momentum class. If you want, I have a perfectly good GT3 car for rent, so you won't have to change the Costco Subie.

Tom,

I vote no on redbull being in GT-3 class...that would just ruin my TCS weekend to have to run against a past champion in the slowest class out there

j/k...bring it on!

So true, but how do you think I feel, having to run against these past champions all these years in F1, front-drive sedans, GT2 last year, and now Minis. It's like I'm a glutton for punishment or something.
