Does anyone else here feel the same way or am I the only person here who is tired of trash talking imports (Hondas in particular). I mean I am sick and tired of these fools with Hondas always trying to race me in my 00 GT stick. What everytime they do something to their car spending thousands of dollars on mods why do they always want to try to see the improvements on their cars by trying to race V8 mustangs. Do they forget that the same way they fix up their hondas we can do it to our mustangs. By the way whats the quickest import doing 10's what a joke.

Why get so upset?

While I understand and appreciate your point of view. Why do you get your panties all in a bundle over it? Let them try to race you. I mean, it's not like you have to race them. If they want to rev their engine at you, let them. Unless you feel like you have something to prove to them, just ignore them.

i'm with s-code on this one.

why worry about it? it really isn't worth the trouble getting upset at them for their efforts. i look at it like this: if they feel the need to use my car as a barometer to measure their econobox's performance, then that tells me they look up to my car and want to beat it.

whenever i drive my '66, i usually don't get too many ricers wanting to race. my exhaust usually scares 'em off (re: LOUD). last time i raced her, some clown in an accord wanted some. guess he didn't think i'd race my baby with my mom in the car did he? ;) that race was over before i got into 2nd (stock 3-spd). :D

anyhow, don't sweat it.

Don't you just love to drown out their little Fart pipe mufflers with your real duals? :evil:

Um, it's actually low 8s...additionally, squeezing that much power out of a sub 2.0L motor is pretty damned impressive. I don't think you ought to worry about them - it's the wannabes that irritate you, so it'd be nice if you wouldn't all lump them all in the same group.

The serious import racers keep a low profile, are just as enthusiastic as you about their cars, and are just people.

You're faster than most ricers, and you know it - you need to prove nothing to no one unless you're at the track...

safe modding :)

I guess you guys are right after all our real competition are V8 chevy's and not econoboxes. I'll try to remember you guys next time one of them pulls up again because I've got better things to do then waste my precious time and gas running up against an econobox that i know that the only way I'll lose to him is if he's using laughing gas(but then again he can only squeeze for so long and when his engine blows I'll be sure to drive by slowly and laugh).

Why drag them down?

I don't like ricers either, and i myself have raced them and beat them several times, and my stang is only a v-6. But there is no need in trash talking about them unless they are trashing you. I mean it's not just ricers that have stickers and other mods. My stang has stickers because i am sponsored by compainies that i advertise for in turn for a sponsorship. Why worry about them. If your gonna race, race for money or wait for the track! ;) i wouldn't waste my time on them. If i can beat them with a v-6, (and this is Girlie Girl Racing) then u know they can't touch you! :bs1:


LATER!

Guys I would just say that Domestic cars Are fast but then again you can make anything fast. You should be amazed of what a 4cyl car can do if they run 10's. Now here in FL there's alot of races everywhere and usually i see the Imports winning. Theres only a few stangs and camaros that do good. The rest get owned. Now cars they race vs are : Supras,rx-7's,Imprezas,Bmw,Audi, i mean good brands just like ford and chevy =) So dont keeptrying to say that u smoked a v4 cuz someday some1's gona hand your ass to you! im one of those people who keeps low profile on what i drive and how fast i can go. Ive showed a few people in mustangs and domestics on what a import with engine swap and a t-78 and long list of mods can do. =)

i know what an Import with a few mods can do...i've driven one, have friends that drive them....All i'm saying is, i don't trash talk them, and i race under a sponsor, so when i race it's legal, and it's not just to show people i can smoke them. So don't go jumping to conclusions about what i've got on my car, and what i've raced are only 4 cylinders, cause they aren't, and i also keep a low profile on what's UNDER my hood, most ppl think it's a v-6, but it's got some mods to it.:s3 :shh:

Whats that famous Bruce Springsteen line from that song-
Racin' In The Street
'shut them up then we shut them down'.

Don't let those maytag F%$s get you down there is nothing more ego filling then beating them by 4 lengths in a trail of smoke with a car older than old or older than their folks beating the lastest that so-called modern technology can offer. Apart from air-con and cd players thats what I think its only worth. There cars have no 'sprit' whatsoever and will be forgotten by history. Im sure your grandkids will hear of a Mustang GT350 not a Mistubshi Zero Evo MXCVIIIII with fully fat skirts, rust removin stereo and seats not designed for a grown man will be at the scrappers to be made into some cheap cutlery.

Im with Ramrod429... Im in Australia and damn those imports are getting popular, and i even own one. A R33 Skyline GTST, i love the car but it doesnt have any spirit, i can do low 13's with a cooler and exhaust and changed my ecu..But imports are no fun later on in life. Ive had my car for 1 year now and allready bored of it. I want a Saleen Mustang S281 as a next car and i will be keeping that car for the rest of my life.

I don't really like the ricers that talk trash, but I do have friends that drive ricers.... They're cool about it... I even have a friend with a vette.... and don't rip on 4 cylinders.... that's all I got.... Yea... that's right... a mustang w/ a 4 cylinder... '93 LX... but hey, it looks good and with the exhaust it sounds good.... the little LX on the back is gone, and I get people trying to race me all the time... usually accords and civics... I don't really know where I'm going w/ this... but don't make fun of 4's!!! lol

love the debate about imports etc,im a ozzie fella and love nothing more then to see rice mobiles come up from behind in there late model buzz boxes only to see my 13 yr old car FORD 1990 falcon stand there and with only a 2/half inch zorst,sound so much better then their 4inch zorst and cannon crap..

honestly they aint all bad but its all about ego's and im sure if i spent the same amount of cash they did on MODS i'd be even quicker then them..

i dont mind the imports i just dont like the person behind the wheel...

haha, I like that... it's not the car, it's the jerk behind the wheel, he's right..... yea, my exhaust beats most of their exhaust too, even if mine is just a 4 cyl... with that flowmaster exhaust and one of the cats ripped off, it sounds great... they try to race me all the time... my little LX is gone, they all think it's a 5.0..... stupid ricers......

its all good in love and war,there's always going to be a battle with cars,its all about respect and most dont admire don't have the respect about another vehicle,it's like pfft my cars better,sought of thing,leading back to the ego thing..

i've always wanted a 300zx twin turbo but i know i wouldnt act like a cockhead once i got it..
