I don't drive my car much in the summer because of the heat, so whenever someone tries to take off from the lights I'll give them a little lead and then fly by on my motorcycle. It brings me joy thinking about how smug they must have felt when they were ahead and then the wave of disappointment as I passed them.



Something I like to do just for fun every now and then is try and toy those H.S kids with their over customized Hondas when they just keep looking at me--and just see what they do. Like one guy dual spoiler (one on top of another) I was just moving my z little by little but I wasn't trying to launch at the green light- Well the guy launched (sight) hahah his Honda was just VERY loud! man his car just moved a few feet. I was like "wow hes barely there" and he ran out of gears. just picture it

People like that just make fools of themselves. Their little rice grinder is loud, but still has small horsepower it's no hot rod. So then they challenge vehicles they have NO chance against like a Z or a Mustang GT or something that will just blow them away. What's the point? I just ignore them. And you know I got to thinking that dragging on a busy street at rush hour is pretty stupid on many levels anyway. I won't do it. For all I honestly care the little loud rice grinder car can go by, hey if that gives him an ego trip like he's got a race car, great by me, and best of all if there's a cop ahead he just attracted his attention and I can keep going to my destination.

These "kids" hold races (runs) in my town 5-6 minutes a way from my house next to gasoline station- police always pass by but they never seem to give a **** about what happens in this part of town..

I was given a ticket a while back for something dumb (following too close- when the guy in front of me slowed down to change lanes, that's when the officer looked at me that i didn't have space still had a good gap) and these guys are breaking the rules bad in front of the officers and nope police just watch and leave..

but anyhow, no hate on these Honda people that just makes my ride more unique!

Ricer? Rice Grinder?

And, my Subaru was quite proficient at taking out Mustangs and Corvettes at the drag strip back in the day.

Im a Honda and benz guy. Still have my 90 civic EF from High school. Lotta mods, but I never race anyone though...I have my panigale if I want speed.

The Honda crowd is diverse, and we by far have the most ricers out of any brand...kinda sad...but oh wells lol.
