so many rx7s today
The hell is an FD? and no, not everything modified is rice to me.
See the difference? One is tastefully modified, the other isn't. a bodykit that makes your car a few feet wider and adding blindingly bright green paint isn't tasteful, it looks ridiculous.
Yes, because if i don't know every last detail of every single one of your precious jap-crap econoboxes or whatever the fuck that thing was, I'm ~totally~ just some stupid moron, right?

again, you're calling me ignorant for not knowing everything about japanese cars.
you're calling me racist for disliking japanese cars? are you fucking serious?
Hah, I love the sound of Diesel. Just sounds like it is actually doing some work.
I've never had it in the upper RPM ranges where it really starts to roar. (If you haven't saw my post in the DIY thread, the throttle cable was very... very slack)
I really wish I had a covered workshop to do some modifications, I really want to get a few extra horses out of this engine (Remap, Intercooler, Decat?) 90BHP just feels a bit pedestrian at times, even if it does thrash the hatchbacks I see around town.
Excuse me if I like something with power as opposed to a 146 HP badly made box.
When did I say anything about american cars? I mean things like Mercedes, something that looks good, has power, and isn't horrifically heavy. unlike your precious RX7s, 146 horsepower and they weigh over 2,500 pounds? have fun with your 0-60 in 10 seconds, but I'll take a Merc SLK350, 0-60 in half the time.
Hush, no fighting.
Both kinds of cars have groups of people who like them and they both have their advantages and disadvantages.
Muscle cars are more suited to a course with alot of straight-aways
Imports are more suited to a course with alot of corners
Now shut up all of you.
I've driven, thank you very much, I just don't own a car of my own as of yet.
Dang it, why is everyone assuming I'm talking about american cars?
I won't stand here and let his blissful ignorance go unopposed.
Screw it, have fun with your Mercs, Hoodoo.
I will, thank you.
If you don't know about cars, your opinion is invalid.
Mr. "The hell is an FD"
You're defining rice without correct knowledge of the universe of cars it exists in.
In other news : Can anyone refer me a good ECU for a Toyota 4a-ge?
I may go with adaptronic but I would like to hear what you guys have to say.
This 6-bolt hub adapter for the S13 steering column is so Chinese that the Chinese NRG knockoff quick-release and it's bolts don't even line up correctly. I can't screw them together without shearing or destroying the threads for both.
I really need to invest in a quality Momo hub adapter and a Sparco or NRG steering wheel quick release. For now I'm gonna bolt the steering wheel to the hub for now. The quick-release looked and worked all cool too :(
Because my OEM is so tired and worn, falling apart.
The only thing messed up is the quick release and I won't use it. But later I will invest in brand name. Not everyone has hundreds to blow on parts, this is average quality. College student lifestyle yo :P
the car I was supposed to get my 2jz from has been sold (already posted that yesterday).
today I learnt that the new owner crashed it in 5h after buying it... That engine would have served me right, and all the other parts would've served other members of our supra club real good.
its a shame...Real shame
God, I just want to get this 'vette sold so I can get something else rolling. I need an extra set of wheels so I can take the time to fix a lot of stuff on the hatch that is falling apart. Tonight I lost a bolt from somewhere and may have popped the crank seal. sflabsldfbalsdfbhsagd
And I don't think my TPS is adjusted correctly.
I'm dawning more and more closer to deciding on what car to get as College will be coming up soon for me and I just got a new job that pretty much requires me to have a car to get back and forth if they need call-ins and I want to jump to full time ASAP so i'll be there bitch for a while.
Anyway, I'm looking for that Car that i can own forever C4 corvette or now looking at one of these (It's still 3800 series so ill still be apart of the 3800 club)
Only 10k, I'll take it. Emailed for vin and if theres extra pictures. If carfax checks out with no incidents and its asthetically clean then ill be owning this. I know I don't look or sound/type like a nascar fan but I do have my earnhardt plaque on my wall and sadly watched him in that accident that killed him. Love to own one of these and my father would probably cry and be happy that someone in the family would own one of these (He literally is die hard earnhardt fan)
Don't you hate it when you're cruisin 85 down a two-lane highway, almost no cars, and then some fuckhead going the speed limit merges into your lane in front of you, and matches the speed of the fuckhead in the right lane? I tailgated the shit out of that douchebag but some people are just so god damn stubborn
Did my first oil change on the camaro today
Man traveling 80+mph on curvy roads with bad control arms make you hella driver.
I need to do my control arms badly ;_;, I really want to do it but really don't fell like doing it myself.
And I REALLY don't fell like paying some fuckhead 92$ a hr to do it.
Some one give me the motivation to do this shit. My car is lacking, and in need of care and luv.
Those things cost so much too! Aftermarket adjustable toe arms, tension rods and those arms cost like, $100 a pop.
About the whole rice thing: I personally hate bodykits. To me it looks like someone just threw as many random shapes on there as they could. Certain bodykits are nice and tasteful, assuming they're subtle and low-profile. I personally think that green FD is buttfuckugly, but that's just my opinion.
However, calling any sort of bodykit "rice" isn't accurate at all, especially if you don't know what you're talking about. I refrain from using the term "rice" because I don't know much about Japanese cars.
Already ordered them, I think they'll look nice. And for 100 bucks marked off for EACH RIM, i think it's a pretty nice deal, too. Gonna have to roll my fenders to get them to fit though, according to a friend. We'll see.
