Got Rice?

So, I wonder how many of us (used collectively) purist Porsche owners have a little rice lurking in the shadows?........
This is my closet ricer...

Nah, that isn't that bad. . .

Now lower it about 3", put lots of neon on it and an outlet pipe at least 3 times the diameter of that one - plus a "fake" carbon fiber hood and a wing twice the size of the car on the back, that's rice!

How is slamming a car rice? It lowers the center of gravity therefore actually making it handle better (how much better is probably fairly minimal)

My good friend has a second gen TSI that can rip the **** out of most cars in our auto-x region. It's his second season and he is winning his class consistantly with guys who have been racing 10+ years. It's an extremely impressive car. Makes me want a 944 turbo...

Gearhead,
Slamming a car for looks does is usually detrimental to handling, especially the way many ricers do it. When a guy with an Acura, lowers it to 1" off the deck, with tiny low-profile tires on 14" spokes that protrude 4" beyond the lip of his fenders, with chrome mud flaps pop-rivetted at a 45 deg angle, and the whole contration bounces at least 4 times over every bump in the road....Now thats RICE.

YEP, and I figured out why the kids think they are so fast...........at about 50 mph, with stuff a rattlin and bangin, and no suspension, dartin and divin all over the road they feel like your goin 150mph....

A car that is properly lowered is just fine. If you're going to slam a car and run a high spring rate you NEED to do it right, as in coilovers (not a strut spring combo), this allows the car to not bounce around the road like a bouncy ball (due to the proper dampening for the spring rate). Adjustable linkage is also something food to have (that way you can do it w/o screwing up your geometry). As for flares and wheels, the flare allows you to run a wider wheels (assuming you use a low enough offset to utalize it) which allows you to run a wider tire, thus meaning the car will be able to stick better. Not to mention a car looks mean w/ flared fenders/quarter panels. Riveted flares are cool too, it's just screaming track slut.

Ok lets have a vote...Is this Rice? Yes or No?



I'm thinking it shows that just because you can doesn't mean you should.

wow, that's pretty bad, the only purpose for a crx is to be stripped/built and on a track. They shouldn't be allowed on roads.....ever

I had an 84 CRX. Popular mechanics voted best gas mileage. Not a bad car.
