    First "ricer fly-by"

    Let me preface this post by saying that this is not a "cobra-kill" kinda of story... it's more of a "stupid-kids-pissed-me-off" kinda story...

    So, there I am going on a nice Sunday Drive last night in complete chill mode doing 40 in a 40. Then a car of kids in a gallant fly by get in front of me hit the brakes and turn on their flashers.

    "Hell no!" my buddy says. "I know they didn't just do a ricer fly-by!"

    I just stay in gear and get on it a little and just pass them. We get to the light with two left turn lanes; I'm in the right lane - the kids in the left lane.

    Someone from the back asked, "Whatcha got?"

    "Exhaust and a couple other things," I respond.

    "Wanna race?" he asked.

    I just smile.

    We turn left and I waved out the window and told 'em, "Go ahead, I'll give you a head start."

    They took off (and I use that phrase VERY loosely) and I just slowly went through first, shifted softly into second, and slowy excellerated until I was at about 3500 RPMs. I went full throttle and left em. I was at about 90 when i shut it down and they were about 5 buses behind - and I mean regular size buses, not the short ones they rode to school. Easy kill, I know... my remote control Scooby probably would have taken them. I just thought I would post my first "ricer fly-by" experience in hopes that others will share theirs.

    I would be the friend that was sitting shotgun for this amusing experience. I couldn’t believe what I saw.

    Funny kill though.

    hahaha "watcha got" how bout "something that has more than twice the hp of your car with only you in it" - thatd be my response - funny story and I like to have some rice eating fun every once in a while but gas is way to expensive for me to be wasting it on something thats not worth it - sounds like fun though - we all must admit that we have smoked a really slow car just to prove a point every once in a while

    Oh but wait till this happens....................

    Dude in a EXP (older Escort) "Run" me from a roll.

    It was VERY ugly.

    Anyway I get in front of him (Along way in front<GG>) and move over to his lane to get around another car and back to my lane.
    (Keep in mind this "run" never exceeded 75mph...lol)


    So he gets to the read light finally and stares over at me all ugly and ****........Till the light turns green.

    As he is turnin right he yells out......."Why dont you just cut somebody off *****" and turns the curve tryin to squeel his tires!!!!


    Believe me, If I had time I would have chased his ass down and thumped his head.

    funny stuff

    I got a ricer fly-by on my once when i was driving the loaner C240 and some idiot in their new Volvo S40 think they're fast. I pulled on them (yes, using the C240) around 1 car lengh. I shut down cuz i don't want to waste more gas on the loaner. They fly-by and flash their hazard lights.

    Since then, i've been looking for them in my own car. :P Not too hard to find cuz it was on local street and they're in a Grey S40. The look like they are in high school or something...some Indian kid.
    Nothing but good ol' replicas...on my good ol' poser c240

    I was cruising in my toy go cart, a 1987 Chevy Sprint Turbo late at night. 11:00 or so. I love the stupid car. Truly fast as long as there is no weight in it. A guy pulled up next to me at the light. He was in the wrong lane to turn right at the next light, and he was not going to get in front of me. Not on my watch. (These losers do this at this stretch of raod all day long. Get in the wrong lane, then butt in at the last minute, and try to make you feel bad for not giving them room. I hate it.) He was in a riced out silver Contour. Full wing, tach and all. He took off with a vengance and I stayed right with him so he couldn't cut me off and turn right. Just before the turn, he hit the brakes and got right on my tail. (He was veerrrry upset that my car stayed with him at his all mighty full throttle.) I thought he would hit me for a second there. He was very close. I turned right with him scraping my bumper. I hammered it through three gears. He was about 15 car lengths behind me at full throttle with his graperfruit shooter exhaust screaming over my stereo. I lifted and showed it with a light tap of the brake lights.
    Here it comes. Wait for it. . . Wait for it. (Man this is a long wait.) WAIT FOR IT . . .
    Vroooooomm! There he goes, showing the incredible power of the ricer fly-by. I sure hope that fly-by made him feel better after getting stomped by a three cylinder.

    Too funny.

    I have not yet experienced this phenomenon known as "ricer fly-by". I am going to laugh my butt off when it does happen though. Keep the stories coming guys. This is too good.

    I have a good one:

    Last night on the way back from getting some wings I'm stuck on a two-lane road with a old beat-to-s*** Civic hatch and a newer Civid Coupe/Sedan/Who cares going 20 in a 30 alongside each other. They slowly pull together and squid1 passes a cigarette to squid2! I sit there for awhile, riding behind this rolling roadblock of highschool lameness, until the road opens up to three lanes. As soon as I have a spot, I shift back into second (going about 20) and gun it past both of them.

    Of course, they hear the exhaust, the BOV and give chase. I moved into the middle lane and slowed down and got my first Dual Ricer Fly-By!!! The three other people in the car were as excited as I was. It will be a moment that I will keep with me for the rest of my life.

    Beat THAT!

    I've had people not know when a race is over and fly by thinking they accomplished something but have yet to have some idiot cut right in front of me and hit the hazards as if they accomplished something.

    hard to beat the dual fly by. That's pimp style yo! lol

    My best one ever was in my truck(about 400hp and 750lb-ft worth of turbo diesel). I was on the way to orchard supply to get some sand to make the kid a sandbox and a little civic hatch that was dropped to the ground I noted as I pulled up to the light starts revving the piss out of his motor. I look at the bottom mirror(the reaaaaallly curved one) and see the dipwad looking up at me. I laugh to myself and tap the 4hi button. I torqued up and when the light turned I left him so bad i bet he was crying. Up the road a ways someone got in his lane so he switched to mine. Welllllll, I was already braking and this dip**** didn't note either of my taillights, the red light on my hitch cover or the little leds in my tailgate, or the fact that I had my exhaust brake on and that thing is deafening. I'm not sure how hard he hit me(felt like I had a bout of gas after a real bad burrito) but I knew he hit me. I hear him cussing and screaming something so I step down out of the truck and he realized it was time to shut his mouth. I'm a pretty healthy guy and I'm told since my stint in the navy I have a pretty mean demeaner, plus both of his door were stuck shut so there wasn't much he could do. I called the police and start walking around my truck to inspect the damage and I didn't really see anything aside from my receiver piercing his hood and my exhaust was squished a little. I was worried that he might have hurt my frame but the bed looked completely straight. The cops come and the turd crawls out of his window. We both give our stories of course this putz lied out of his arse, thankfully there were witnesses that said the exact same thing I said(I actually told the truth). The wreckers come and look at it for a second and ask if I can try to pull it forward. I get in put it in 4 low and give her some juice. Nothing I just drag the civic behind me a few inches. The wrecker puts a chain on the back hook under the civic and we try again. It snapped the hook ROFL. Final try the wrecker puts his tire clamps on and we try one last time....pop... it's free. I get out to get a look at the damage. My receiver took a nice chunk out of the hood. I crawl around underneath and everything looks ok except the exhaust and a few scratches on the hitch.

    In the end, big truck $450 worth of damage(just put a new tip on the exhaust and touched up a few scratches lol, and a new plastic lighted hitch cover) His car more than likely totalled. The cop noted that if he was stock height he would have just hit my bumper(which is a tubular steel, but his bumper would have helped instead of my hitch hitting the motor lol) instead his tranny was touching the ground so it must have snapped the motor mounts , and the whole front end was a mess, there was green, brown and light brown stuff on the ground(more than likely coolant, motor oil, and tranny oil lol) all from my little hitch. The cop was having a hard time not laughing when we both looked at the damage to both cars.

    See they get paid back once in a while he was trying to catch up to do a flyby and ended up getting splatted like a fly.

    He claimed I was doing pretty much what he was really doing and he was driving like an angel. He said I was weaving in and out of traffic, and I passed his poor little car and cut him off and slammed on the brakes. He changed his story two times until he heard one of the witnesses said "see look there was no tire marks from the truck he was already stopping normally, but look at the skid marks from the car. I saw him weaving in and out of traffic for the past two miles, then he started messing with the truck" The civic kid looked over and noted that there was a LONG strip of black behind his car that perfectly matched where it was sitting and said "well...welll..... you'll hear from my lawyer" oddly enough I heard from his insurance and 5 days later I got a check in the mail lol and never again heard a peep.

    To this day I don't know how he hit me. I've driven several civics and they could slow from 100mph faster than my truck could slow from 60. He must have really had his head in his butt.

    The final victory was while the flatbed was winching his car on the bed with it "bleeding" everywhere and I shook the cops hand, got a screwdriver out of the truck and pried the exhaust open, then hopped in the truck and left to get my sand lol. The cop waved to me as I was pulling away.
