dont get me wrong there neat little cars for the most part but why all of a sudden is it like uncool to have a v8 rwd camaro or mustang ?? that the only real fast cars are I4 turbos with awd. i show up with my car and get no attention but a stock 240 hp evo comes up and everyone comes running lol i just odnt get it.. i wish i had been around for the muscle car era

Loud, you are just hanging around in the wrong crowds. In the circles I run in, the V8 muscle gets the attention. The fart box stuff gets looks from kids that don't know better....

Commonly know as "Ricers" where I come from. Also we get a good laugh from them as well.
I run 17's Yo!

RWD V-8s haven't been "cool" to American pop culture in years. It's all about the ricer shit now. But who cares? I'd rather be fast than look cool.

anthony when ur down at dunks theres never any rice...pretty much all f bodies and some stangs.... so where do u show up with ur car that u get no attention...worcester(rice capital of the world) lol its straight out of the fast and the furious lol

ever since the fast and the furious came out this phase of fart can exhausts, intakes and sticker decals has gotten way outta control imo....granted there are and were fast imports out there before that movie ever came out....but its the people with these "rice" burners that give them a bad name.
i find it very ammusing when they think that there 100hp car will destroy a V8...and its even better when they keep trying to race you and get destroyed every single time....RICE is a joke i laugh everytime i hear my weedwacker drive by...nuthing can compare to the loud rumble and raw power of a V8 american muscle car !!! :thumbsup:

i really like the EVO and STi, i might have one if i could of come close to affording one when i got the T/A. they are really fast and can give us a good run. but they don't have the raw power that a healthy LS1 has

I would never seriously mod them. Maybe a turboback, uppipe, and engine management, but nothing more. The only reason I got mine was for a winter driver.

F-Bodies are where it's at. The turbo AWD thing is pretty much just a fad right now. It'll blow over.

Sounds like your in the wrong place then. But there is no denying an impreza sti is a fast car stock and modded even faster. i got my ass handed to me by a stage 2 sti. once we both hit 2 gear he was pulling away. but as always :finger: imported cars. except as DD's

Anthony it's because you don't have stickers all over the place and neon lights. :dontknow: Those add 20hp a sticker and neons add 20 a light. :drool: Just smoke them and let them know who is boss.

One of my good friends is infatuated with the Judge also.. every time we see one I think he nuts in his pants. They're sweet cars.
