    This is a sort of spin off to the how do people react to your ferrrari thread.

    since ricers want to prove thier cars are fast just cause they have a coffie can-sized exaust tip and a wing from a boing 747 so they want to race your ferrari.
    How many times has this happened to you, and tell about it.

    Never raced a ricer in a Ferrari, but I saw a drag race with a Ferrari 360 Modena and Honda Civic. Light turned green and the Ferrari took off half throttle, while the Civic was probably wide open throttle. When the guy in the Modena started getting serious it was like he broke a hole in the atmosphere... He must have had Tubi cause my ears where in pleasure for that those few seconds before all I saw where the tailights of the cars.

    My dad said that when he was with my sister, an old granny in a Honda pulled up and they raced. Sounded funny.

    Zero.

    I know I'd lose.

    They make their cars go quick off the line, super fast in a straight line. My car is 17 years older than theirs most of the time so you'd hope they could get modern technology to match it and beat it.

    But every time I see one I know the girl in their car would much rather be where my wife is sitting... in a ferrari. ;-)

    All the ricers I run into around here just want to look and admire more than anything. They are car enthusiasts too....just a different generation and pocket depth (although they can spend some serious coin on those things).

    Maybe they are racing me...but I'm always driving a little too fast (all right real fast says the girlfriend!)....they just aren't keeping up too well...and neither is anyone else for that matter!

    Ciao

    Some well-modified ricers probably have a chance on the street against a 360 as it doesn't have a lot of low-end torque. I have seen some blown civics move along faster than 355s and 360s.

    In a 550 or 575 you should blow the doors off of anything up to a well-tuned Supra, 300ZX, etc.

    Sometimes get approached by boxsters too. Does Michael Schumacher want to race in his F1 car against Tony Stewart in his Nascar? What's the point? Different class.

    If its a rice car that has speed potential, for example a Wrx, a Supra TT or Rx7TT, ill race them. If its a Honda with a fart can, i dont pay attention to them.

    I sometime drive a bit too fast but I never race anyone in the street period. I keep that for the track with a real race car. Besides Ferraris in general are not really good at drag racing anyway.

    Happens all the time. Most of the time it's like Ingenere said, they are admirers and want a closer look, then get the idea to try and entice me into gunning it and racing them. The worst is when some idiot in a pickup truck pulls up next to me, then floors his truck and takes off, as if I should really race him and prove that my car is faster.

    Ran into a riced out WRX just today carbon fiber wing and looked like rear hatch, plate said REAL STI. Waited for him to make a move, but never went weird because he looked all riced out ready to go....I wasnt about to lose and I was remembering that last Subaru thread on here!

    i have owned, worked on and gotten beaten by some " rice a roni " cars. so what NOBODY IS BUYING AND RESTORING OLD JAP CARS. while ferraris to trans ams from 25 years ago are found and restored. most rice cars are less than 10 years old, and they are mostly "the same" ho hum. so they keep buying the beaters and "rice them" up. hell an original honda civic may be worth something one day since out of the million they make a year, only 1% will be original after the ricers ruin them. i would rather have and old classic fcar, pcar or muscle car than waste $$$ on a ricer. long live carb cars!!!!!

    I had a Nissan Skyline GT R34 V-Spec, which was tuned up to deliver 0-100mph in 8.5 seconds.. not much went by me in that.

    Shame they don't make them any more.. *sniffle* I have to settle for a 360 now..
