I've had my fun with the ricers-- there is a pretty big group of them that flies around town all night... couple of my friends work at the local car audio/performance place, they're trying to get me against some of the heavier modded ricers... probably tonight, last night the truck was dirty and we all know that costs about 4 seconds off the 1/4 mile... So far no losses, one prelude took a couple of extra RPMS to beat but I nosed ahead.... Pride comes before the fall though
I find that many ricers, have very little balls and do not know how to drive their cars very well, and since some of us in our trucks have bigger balls and vehicles, its best to just scare them off the road, i dont usually get passed by any of them on the highway and if i do i take it as an insult and pass back, the only cars i cant f*ck with on the highway are the damn germans.
I plan on swappin in a sy motor to alleviate this ricer problem (even though I'll be gunning for bigger dogs). For the most part around here no one has a tuned suspension like the zq8 so I haven't had any problems on open freeway cutting lanes to keep ahead of them. Not too many try **** around here cause I'm going to assume they think the X's have V6's in them, which I unfortunately don't have...yet.
I've won 18 out of 19 rice races in my SS. That ******* in the crx had a turbo and sh*t ton of nos! And I had a half a length till he hit the nos. But that's okay, a week later I ripped him a new one in my '68 Chevelle!
I have found a little respect for the ricing crowd. There are a few in the bunch who know their stuff and have built some fast rides. There is a dude I raced, err, turned down the side street, that works at UPS w/ me who has a sweet Integra (or is it an accord). It's riced, but not riced out, and it is f a s t. Never heard him talk of times, maybe I should ask? Probably get BS, but what they heck.
