    Yeah come to think of it seems like the Honda Odyssey with the V6 are more aggressive then let say a Toyota Sienna V6. May be they think they are driving a Odyssey Type-R hahahahha

    Red face

    So I am coming home from work down Steven's Creek Blvd. minding my own business around 3:00 in the afternoon. I am in the middle lane of a 6 lane road, 3 lanes on each side. I come up to a light to stop and I see some ricer pull up behind me in a Acura Integra. Light turns green and I just "granny shift" through the gears up to 3rd. I continue on and a slower car is in my lane. The ricer starts coming up on my right in the right lane with his lane completely empty, so I am thinking about turning into the left lane. So I am about to make my move, for some reason the ricer punches it, cuts me off in my middle lane, in between me and the slower car and then takes the left lane I was about to take.

    So I got HEATED, and came around the slower car on the right and pulled up along side the ricer, looked over and he gave me a smug smile like, "Yeah I cut you off." So I couldn't really think of any thing to do so I just punched it in 3rd and he didn't want to follow. Why did you antogonize me and then didn't want to PLAY????? I really don't know why it got me so mad. Maybe it was the awful inferior color Turquoise color with non'matching other shade of Turquoise 3 LEVEL WHALE WING. Or the fact that he cut me off on purpose, since he had a open lane in front of him. Why do they do that.

    I was behind a honda civic that had one of those god awful, non-functional, whale wings, and some really dialed 14" American Racing wheels, lowered chassis, and custom tinted windows with bubbles.

    I entered the corner to the freeway on ramp right behind this knob. He was really doggin it up the hill, and it was a double lane entrance that merged to a single entry to the highway. I moved to the other lane, and punched it, only to realize this dork was trying to keep up and cut me off before the merge.

    At the top of the ramp, I had at least 5 car lenghts. He proceeded to motor up on me and swerve across the stripes cutting off me and the other 3 cars trying to cut into rush hour traffic!!!

    I want to commission a study on these tards.
    your avatar looks good but i noticed something was wrong right away, its your tachometer that is supposed to fly up that fast not the speedometer...wrx can't exelerate that fast, especialy if the tachometer isn't even moving

    I disagree. "Rice rocket" is indeed a derogatory and pejorative term. Look at any muscle car forum such as corral.net or LS1.net and you'll be hard pressed to find that term used as a compliment. IMO, fast sport bikes and cars are complimented by being called "fast sport bikes and cars". Period.

    I'd also like to add that "flybys" are hardly limited to people called "ricers" on this board (we are called ricers by mere fact we drive a Japanese manufacturer's car on the above-mentioned boards). I mostly get flybys by big-engined SUVs and trucks.
    i also think that most of the time the term "rice rocket is used its in a derogatory way, the term i perfer to here is "pocket rocket"

    I got one yesterday by a big 4x4 with the 3" dual exhuast.

    On an on ramp. I am in the lane that continues, he's in the lane that ends. The light turn green, he floors it (its really loud, but both I and the MB behind me get in front of him. On the On ramp, he tries passes us both on the left hand median as its merging into bumper to bumper traffic. The Semi on the Highway would not have any of it, and sqeezes him back. He ends up passing all three of us at about 110 in a raised full size 4x4 in heavy traffic. What a tool.

    in houston (and texas in general) you see alot more of those than you do hondas and acuras. there are just waaaayyyy too many F150s and F350s that are raised 18 inches and have monster truck tires and go 90 on the freeway. they go anywhere they want cause they know ppl will move outof the way for them, its so annoying.

    Yup... I know my Avitar is incorrect. That's what I get for putting the .gif together in 15 minutes.

    I could add a bunch of frames, and make the needle climb the rpm range thru the gears, but that means making note of where each gear tops out at on the speedo.

    eh, you still call them "rice" cars, cause its not just a term for imports, its really for all the cars that try to look fast, not go fast

    good example- last night i raced an svt cobra convert at the stoplight. it had altezza headlights and all, and i ended up spanking it twice. i don't think he was really pushing his car though, so it might not have been a true win, but still...altezzas on a mustang??? geez..
