Cool

Before I begin, I swear lately when I drive, and as a 1st time BMW driver since last june 2004, every hotshot in a riced out Neon or Honda tries to race me or show me off on freeways, streets, even parking lots used !!! I just dont get it.....nor do I care to prove anything....


Anyway I was on the Jackie Robinson Parkway today driving to school/work as (I usually do thru Queens from Brooklyn to the Long Island Expressway-West then into the Midtown tunnel to get to Manhattan). Its like 11am and there's no truck traffic on the Robinson but school buses usually go thru there at this time.

Okay before I start, The Jackie R. is a twisty uphill, downhill, 2 narrow-squeeze-your-a$$-thru lanes roadway with slick a$$ pavement underneath. Its easy as hell to speed but the hairpin curves and blind turns will make you think again especially when there's traffic. Anyway I've gotten accustomed to it after 4 months and know how to manuver thru there safely at 60-70 mph (the limits 40-45mph).

Anyway back to the story today I'm in the fast lane zooming by cars, I hit the first set of curves switching between slow and fast lanes to get around the slowing cars. Soon I go thru the first lump of traffic and there is no cars in front, just a school bus speeding in the fast lane. As I switch over to the slow lane to pass I see a bright blue hooked up Neon with Pennsylvania plates coming up fast in the slow lane. As I switch to the slow he switches to the fast lane but then switches back behind me when he sees the bus. Now, the bus is speeding and I didn't want him anywhere behind me so I go neck and neck with the bus for awhile (watching him) and then I let the bus pass me. This idiot is probably pissed because he zooms out from the back of the bus cuts me off (I was going 50mph) and then cuts back over and cuts the bus off . I was like . My 1st impulse (and I started to do it) was to speed up behind him in his lane and switch over to pass him. Good thing for me I didn't get anywhere near him.

So I started speed up behind him. At like 70 mph I reach him but I knew the road was going to dip then curve all the way to the left with two blind right and left curves right after. I get a few car lengths behind him and I switch over to pass him. The idiot switches with me back and forth twice to block me off from passing him. I was like !!! but I knew the blind curves was right there. So I slowed down and watched the idiot zoomed right off all proud and $hit, when he saw the curve at the last minute, panicked braked hard and lost complete control of his back wheels. His back end wobbled sideways and the drivers side of the car drifted into the stone wall before slamming into it! $hit was falling off all over the place (his side mirror and rear lights came right off). Then he must have of yanked his steering wheel to get his rear back end off the wall because the front of his car spun into the wall and his car did a 360 hitting the wall a few more times before spinning across the parkway onto a grassy triangular patch where an exit ramp split off (good thing it wasn't further up or down the parkway cause it would have been another stone wall on that side too). All his air bags opened up and around his wheels and hood were smoking. I was like and slowed down to pull over to help him but the traffic behind us had caught up and some cars were stopping to help him. He seemed okay from what I could see but I'm sorry I could'nt stop (Sorry dude!) to laugh at him, I mean help him :wink .

I was also shook up cause many of times I've sped down the Jackie R a little too fast and felt my rear wheels (back when I had 15inch worn out Toyos) start to drift sideways on those hard turns. Plus had I speeded up to be closer to him before he lost control I would have either hit him or had to do some Dukes-Of-Hazzard manuvering to get around him !!!

What an idiot! Now he has to take Greyhound back to Pennsylvania!!! :

Thanks God NO ONE Got HURT though. But seriously these Ricers gotta stop TRYING to test Beemers on the road!!!

My Message to RICERS: "No one wants to race your crusty a$$ cars!!!!! Leave us alone!!!"

hahah ^ very true.. im sure in that situation he couldnt care less though

anyway:

yes, we do want to race them, and have them make fools of theirselves

u know that one quote that goes something like:

it is better to keep ur mouth closed and make people think u are a fool, rather than open ur mouth and remove all doubt
which goes to:
its better to not race bimmers with riced out cars that suck and let people beat u, rather than to race them and lose and make a huge fool of urself

Hey man I'm a proper BMW advocate but "crusty ass cars"??? My Bro has a real decked out 200sx and let me tell you it whips m3's into next week (over 6000 worth of engine mods) - no f******g s**t 0-60 in 4.5secs + the handling of a track car (3000's worth of nissan race suspension) and regularly runs it at Santa Pod race what you run events - never been beaten by a BMW.

I hate to say it but "Not all ricers are to be fu**ed with!"

I wouldn't call your brother a ricer if his car is done "right". I'd call him a tuner.

Actually, isn't a dodge neon an American car? How does that make him a ricer? I'm not being funny but I thought ricers were people that drive tuned/jazzed up jap cars!

Plus, no offence to 318 drivers but they're hardly a "QUICK" car are they? in fact e36 318 is sssssllllloooooooowwwwww.

exactly....a ricer is a neon or similar with a coffee can exhaust and neons and all that other cheap shit added on. i damn sure ain't wasting my BMW power just to prove its faster. i already know it. it just pisses me off that these ricers think they CAN whoop bimmers ass.....two words, drive one...


<span style='color:green'>
AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

318i SE 4d 1796/4 10.9 secs 0-60

Brief rundown of what seems to be the acceptable definition of "ricer":

One who modifys a vehicle to give the appearance of it being faster than it really is. (see also: NOS stickers, triple deck spoilers)

:P Yeah Einstien, Speed and Engine specs is one thing but Control, Style, Command and "the ultimate driving machine" is another thing!
I'm sure a 318i wont have spun out like that after hitting breaks hard into a sharp curve...those Neons have a nasty design that has the front end way too low and the rear end way above the cars center of gravity. Plus the tiny tires....well I could go on and on....
but this is a BMW forum...
invite me to your Neon...ricer forum and we'll talk...okay buddy!!! now go away...I say
