Only the yellow decals do that, though. Red ones add less power.

Type-R stickers, however, add the most power, especially on a Toyota or Nissan. VTEC stickers help the most on Cavaliers and Neons.

No.. That's another 100lbs easy. Then lets throw on those huge chrome 18 inch wheels and you have a real runner there.

It's pretty sad but I use to challenge these guys on the street every chance I got. Mind you I drive a 2000 Tacoma 4x4 with 240000 miles on it. Rarely did I have any trouble. Nothin more embarrising that having you A-- handed to you by some guy in a pick up...

Isn't easy to get confused when the drivers thought using Nitrous meant you HUFFED it instead of injecting it into the engine.

Most of em sound like weak and dying bumble bees screaming for the last time. I hate ricers. I drive a Civic and mine is done right, not into "tuners" but they always try to race me. Ok, yeah 2 4 bangers "racing", damn idiots I swear. Here's my ride, slow and low, chops sticks maybe, but no rice

LOL, some of those cars are the automotive equivalent of wearing leisure suits, bell bottoms platform shoes and 20 pounds of gold bling. Maybe they want attention or to give people a good laugh. I hope they don't think those cars look cool. Then they have a problem. Dumping lots of money into a clown car may not make sense but people can do as they please. Just plan on getting about a 20 cents return on every dollar spent.
But... if you're attached to a car and don't want to let it go and it runs for you, then it isn't so bad keeping it no matter how bad it looks. I drove my dad's car and it was falling apart and rusting but was good enough to get me the few miles to work and back, haul items in( a station wagon) and I never had to worry about anything happening to it. I worked with a guy who was crazy about a Chevy Tracker that was the biggest POS around, not even street legal but he drove it anyway. His new stereo system caused the wiring to burn out, it looked like it had been submerged in mud for a few weeks. To each his own.

And most of them, in my town, are "in the process" of getting it painted, which means they have been driving around with it all primered for years!!!

How about those tail fins... what the????

Neon, paint or lights- FAIL...
