The RiceStreet page was dead on. I think a great deal of the "riceboys" are just sadly misinformed. I am from Kansas, and as you might imagine there are few places that can service the demand for the poor whiteguy's unquenchable desire for plastic add-ons and "performance" enhancements. It would appear that Walmart is the choice of the pros with the Kenji style seatcovers, golden dragon license plate frames, and screw on exhaust tips. Yes sadly the NOS steering wheel covers do not add speed to their tic-tac colored cars. That is for those that have a car with one base color. Here in Kansas the popular fad is not finishing your work and rocking the "pasty gray primer" paint job. I was expecting to see a few of these documented on the site, as well as the aluminum or metal spoilers that very well could have come off of an airplane..or bleachers. At any rate you will find it futile to argue that installing these "1337" mods on the cars actually has no effect on its performance since the Riceboy would rather wrap his car around a bridge embankment before accepting that yes, his car is utterly useless. I'll leave with some Rice antics I sadly came into contact with.

1. This took place at a local hotspot for some ricers I guess, which was a street that wasn't even close to a quarter mile. There was a gathering of various second rate early 90's cars here. 2 rocked the partial body kit and metal aerofoil spoiler. The other car was a 92 saturn 4 door. This avid racer stripped his saturn of all its interior...backseat, passenger seat, trim, door panels...you name it. The magnum opus of the night was watching the saturn beat one of the MODDED^3 vehicles. Then again as stated on your site there were 30mph start out speeds to be shared by all.

2. This happened in the parking lot of the driving range where i used to work. Handicapped stalls had parking blocks...these were no more than 5-6 inches off the ground. A honda prelude with ultra groundscraping body kit parks in the handicapped stall. The driver must have realized his only handicap was his blatent stupidity when it comes to cars, so he decided to move to a non handicap spot. After reversing a few feet and wowing all the golfers with a couple revs of his kazoo he pulled diagonally forward. SWEET VICTORY! I watched this clown's front bumper get caught on the parking block, get pulled off and partially run over...I was standing outside and just started cracking up....well..so did most of the people hitting balls. The poor fool so embarrassed put the remains of the bumper in his car as best as he could and drove away....ah....man that was classic.

3. This was a little more personal happening. I do not consider myself a racer by any means. I own a 1993 z28 "camarho". Anyways to the point...I recently moved for school. A friend in my dorm hung out with this apparent riceboy. Well with car talk surfacing it wasn't long before I was being openly challenged. Now...his mitsubishi eclipse came stock with a turbo, and he had made numerous obviously important additions like the metal grating body kit, the rubber band tires on oversized rims, and a spoiler that if properly angled just might have made the car take flight. So one night when headed out it so happened we were lined up at a red light just outside of campus....lets overview. He puts his automatic into neutral so he can rev his engine for everyone around us. I saw him watch the lights so he could
get the necessary RollingRice start. The grand finale he forgets to put it back into drive....and sits reving the engine as it turns green and i take off. Another golden moment in the progression of import racing nation wide.

I have a stock GMC Sierra (1997) with a 350 and even I can take these retard ricers off the line.Top end I would of course lose because my truck is not the most aerodynamic vehicle on the road, but off the launch up to about 60mph i can take a ricer no problem. Even some V-6 domestics, like '95 Intrepid 3.5's.I guess that's the advantage of lots of torque (340lb/ft.) And i still don't understand how adding a body kit to a ricer would in crease it's aerodynamics. I guess the Japenese have figured out a way to increse in surface area and still make their cars more aerodynamic.
