When this guy hits the gas the license plate bolts can't even keep up. In other words, SUPA FAST YO!

Looks like some sort of bug with that wing.

And the top of the door is popped from the high speed slipstream like Car & Driver's 200+ mph Firebird, NOT!
Plus note the classic riceboy mistake of alloys on the front and steels on the rear.

He should have the steelies in front to offset the weight of the spoiler and mufflers. He can probably pop wheelies and throw sparks with the mufflers.

The back end looks like it's about to fall off.

#4, If he drives fast enough and hits a bump, the down force on that HUGE spoiler will lift the front end ... just a theory.

#3, The steelies go on the front on real FWD drag racers because the taller sidewalls on the stock rubber "wind up" and give a better launch, the alloys go on on the rear to save weight, riceboys usually get it wrong.And while we are atit , I will vent my pet peeve, A2 jettas with round headlights.

#8, I know that about the steelies going in the front. This one isn't a real FWD drag racer. My post about the front lifting off the ground because of the heavy spoiler was a joke. Duh.

Hmmm, a ricer not knowing anything about car styling, I'm totally flabbergasted.

#10 hahaha... you said flabbergasted.

Ricer Checklist:
atleast 1 stupid "premium" wheel check
expensive wing check
expensive fart cans dbl check
some sort of mismatched hood check
not spending 25 cents for a plastic bolt to keep his license plate straight check

he passes... it's rice.

that has to be the stupidest car I have ever seen. I wonder what it sounds like?

Probably like a swarm of bees like most ricers.

wow, dual exhaust on a four cylinder...too bad its not truely possible

#16 5-18-2005 @ 06:31:19 AM

#15, Oh? It's not possible to hook up two cylinders to one pipe?
Anyway... It's still rice.

#16, Due to firing order and exhaust scavenging issues the optimal exhaust header setup on a 4-banger is 4 into 1, or 4 into 2 into 1 (tri-Y) which is the same basic setup as 1 bank of a V-8. You can make a 4 have dual exhausts, but it usually involves a Y section in the tail pipe, or for the lazier riceboys a dummy exhaust tip (ideal for mounting the speaker for your turbo blowoff sound effect). Also while my techie hat is on I will note that motorcycles with inline 4's and dual mufflers usually use a Y section after the collector to allow duals for either greater noise reduction or styling symmetry.

#17, OK, I get it. Actually I wondered why Fiat 127 Sport (1300cc on big carb, 75HP) that my father once owned exhaust manifold was a 4-2-1 setup.
How about V6 double exhausts? 3 into 1?

#19 5-19-2005 @ 01:17:36 PM
Posted By: Slow Joe Crow Reply | Edit | Del
#18, That's the basic idea, triples or V6s would use 3-1 or sometimes 2 ports in a 2-1 joined to the third as a sort of 3-2-1 depending on firing order and cam timing. Also many dual setups incorporate a balance pipe (also called crossover or H-pipe) to even out the exhaust pulses, and/or to reduce noise. Exhaust design is still something of an art, espcially 2-stroke expansion chambers.

#19, Don't laugh (I'm from the other side of the world so i don't know much about muscle cars) but I think some dual exhaust cars had exhausts that criss-crossed at one point?
