Sitting at a light headed to dinner the other night, and wasn't even paying attention to the car next to me, had been talking w my wife and not really in the mood to play...it was a Nissan 350Z, red. He gassed it and I saw him pull away...so I stomped it and caught and passed him at around 55mph...let off bc it was in the city. I guess he saw me and wanted to see what I had. Even though he got the jump bc I wasn't even thinking about racing (or even saw him), I pulled hard on him. Nice win even from a disadvantage.

Btw, wtf is with all these stupid looking, camber wheeled ricers? My God they are terrible. I have killed more than a few in the past weeks. It is bad enough to be a ricer, but now throwing on wheels/tires that are practically sideways, it just sends me over the edge...man I am getting old.

Good kill man, I love Foxbat's statement, "Eat some rice" lol very funny. I ate a red 350z alive a year back, with two other passengers in my car. I was stock... The funny part is his girlfriend looked over at me with this "WTF" expression on her face as I passed by. Her man got owned. lol....

Ive been trying to figure out the same thing. they take a skinny tire, that would fit their car, but then they stretch the **** out of it so itll fit on a really wide rim, so now it DOESN'T fit their car, so they camber it way back in, so it wont rub the fender.

They call it being "stanced" and it makes no sense to me.

It gives them like a, 2 inch tread pattern on the rear, which I guess is the same as us putting skinnies up front, lol. Except for when they do it to RWD ricers

Don't you know having your wheels sitting at a 45 degree angle is all the rage these days? Its done for looks not handling or traction and they don't are they're destroying their tires.

Never the less good come from the rear kill.

45 degree slanted wheels are only cool when they are neon in color with spinners and 6" diameter rotors behind 15" rims.







/sarcasm.

Good kill.

I was checking out some vids on youtube because it's been huge over in Japan for a while now and I'm talking about camber to the extreme. I knew it would hit the states at some point.

Good kill though!

Nice win! Back a few years ago my buddy raced my G8 in his 350Z. We went from a dead stop up to about 100. I overtook him right away and just demolished him :)

I remember seeing him slack-jawed after the race at how fast I blew him away lol

I should post up my video of the GT-R I raced.....now THAT was a loss worth losing heh

LOLZ! Perfect.

The massive amounts of negative camber will be great when the guy hits a turn with his car 45° to the ground... until then, it's just a quick way to burn through a set of tires, rub the hell out of your fenders, and have a bone-jarring ride.
