Ok this guy owns a older body all wheel drive turbo eclpies with a boost controler and he is spose to be boosting alot well he comes down to local hang out and just spins the hell out of the tires. well one night my best friend said him and some freinds were going racing on this long strip we have here in FL. So i followed to see what was up. Now y friend, i have to admit to dirves a 88 crx and all his friends drive ricers well they were running out ther and this guy with the eclpise pulls up beside me and says "i want some of that" now i was just chilling in my car cause all these guys are a waste of my time. Well i told him it would cost him so we went for $100 dollars.what he was thinking.i have no idea. So we lined up and i had my freind count down.He dumped it like around 4 to 5 grand and i rolled in to first so slow trying to keep form spinnig and buy mid 1st it was over when i snatched 2nd gear i have like 5 car lenths i came up to about 120 and my freind in the passanger set says "I can even see his head lights" That how bad it was. I see that gey every saturday night and he has never spun out again around me haahahahahahah stupid ricers

I too ran into one of these guys a while back. i was pulling up to a light as it was turning yellow, and i was in the left of two lanes. i needed to get over to make a right turn at the following light, which was less than an 1/8th of a mile ahead. well i signaled to get over, and this multi-colored ricer was a little bit back, but instead of him letting me over, he gased it and blocked me.

so at this point i was thinking to myself, ok, whatever, i will just let him go and change lanes behind him when the light changes, he is obviously in a hurry.

upon closer inspection and investigation past the wide body kit, huge front clip, and massive wing, this was a civic del sol. it was a relativly long light, and he proceeded to rev his engine, if i dare call it that. the sound was horrendous. so i look over and he has this tough guy look on his face. i just shake my head and he revs some more.

i figure it is my rightful duty at this point to put this clown in his place. as i notice the other light turning yellow i rev to around 2 grand and bring the clutch out, ready to go. the light changes and he starts in with the wheelspin, as i get a little chirp and pull away. i was already a half a car ahead of him when i layed down a nice second gear scratch and merged over in front of him to make my right turn at the next light. it was a murder.

the funiest part was when the jetta that was behind me made it up next to me while i was waiting for traffic to make my right turn at the following light. i looked over at him and he was laughing histerically. he then said to me, nice cobra man, what was that guy thinking?!?!

HAHA! I have a good DSM kill...

I was in the Marauder behind a previous model Eclipse, and needed to get into the right lane because I would be turning about a mile up the road. When the light turned green, he gunned it, and I decided to see how the Marauder would hang. As soon as traffic was clear, i got into the right lane and absolutely ran past him, with him givng it all he could. Probably around 2-3 car lengths by the time I shut it down.

Best part was, at the next light, he pulled up and his woman was laughing at him while he looked at me like he'd just seen a ghost. I guess that's what happens when you get roasted by a 4500 lb old fart car..hahahaha!

My 57 year old dad actually rice hunts in this thing...he killed a Civic that was messing with him the other day, and the kid didn't even know what hit him.:rotf: :D
