Mazda waiste of time

I'm taking advantage of the road here in Michigan being clear to take the Cobra out for a nice ride. I'm driving down the highway when a mazda pulls next to me and revs his rice mobile I turn and laugh at him and buddy. I goto get off the highway and he cuts off a semi to get on the ramp. I'm setting at the light and he starts again. The light turns green I left him in the dust before making it to 2nd gear and he tried one more time at the next light same thing. I'm glad he gave up after that and quit pestering me so I could take my pleasure cruise after that.

I definetly have to agree with that. I really did enjoy the feeling of leaving him in the dust.

Most of the time when they jump on ya you cannot even let the beast loose without climbing the back of the car in front of you or the next stop light

I had always heard when the Maxwell House cans were put on the exhaust they were worth 2 hp more than the Folgers cans.

The only problem is the paper cups start falling apart after getting wet several times and the styrofoam can melt if it gets too hot. Plus they just aren't big enough to get the attention factor! Besides, there is nothing like that "booming" sound and reverb you get from one of those big ribbed cans!

Yet another reason I'm glad I'm not a ricer...I don't drink coffee and I don't think the hot chocolate packages would have the same effect.

As originally posted in my prior thread "H is for Hahaha Honda" I would like to share with the group my discoveries during my studies of the Science of Rice-ology... (know your enemy, understand how their mind works)

I've spent years working at this, & in my secret laboooorrrr-a-tory (said like "Dexter") I believe I've discovered their formula:

Yellow = Fast. Adding yellow wire looms on every piece of the motor adds 20 hp.

Lean. The more you lean towards the transmission, the faster the car will go. You're centering your mass over the focal drive point. Add 5 hp for every pound you place on the center console.

Bass = speed. The more ass bubbling bass you have, & the muddier it sounds, the faster your car is. Sub frequency boosts the harmonic balance of your 4cyl motor. For ever false 400W add 3 hp. Sony ROCKS yo.

Every sticker = 5hp. Big gaudy stickers that clash with your paint scheme = 20 hp.

Debadge your vehicle. Make sure know one knows you have the SL model from mom. If you THINK it's fast, it must be.

For every teen-age girl you hang with add 10 hp. Their cell phones & hormonal imbalance will add octane to your fuel via osmosis.

Neon means speed. Start with your license plate. Then do under your seats. When you're a real rice racer, you've got the money to do an under car kit. For every neon add 2hp.

Now don't forget the CAI & Fart pipe. AEM rates up to 30hp gains!!! We all know to double that b/c it's not how you dyno, it's how you LOOK like you dyno!

Finally, brag alot. Wow the ladies with your tales of 140 hp! That is how to win against a Cobra. Beat them with your mind.. IN your mind.

Equation solved.

You mean if I put stickers, and a maxwell house can on the car it goes faster.
I gotta start drinking coffee.
Back in the day it used to be chrome valve covers did the trick.
Times change
