The Latest Ricer Fad

So, those crazy ricers have done it again! The latest fad is negative camber while lowering the car as much as possible to achieve that amazing stance that resembles a badly broken axel.

Guys, we seriously need to consider doing this to our cars. I'm told the ricer girls just go bonkers over that completely unsafe/undrivable look. Combine that with some ludicrously stretched tires and you have yourself one badass ride!

WARNING: NSFW FOR LANGUAGE

Wouldn't you think the police could see how rediculously unsafe this is. I bet it's hard to take a corner at anything over 10 MPH! Gees...stupid! But, yeah, I'm for doing it to my LS3!!!!!....not.

I wish I had a few of these guys driving around by me. I wouldn't have to worry about gravel being all over the road anymore...

This has been around for awhile. It follows the Bosozoku style set forth by Japanese gangsters. Hellaflush, Stance nation, etc. they're all a stupid cult following. These recent iterations fill the "hipster" niche in car culture, and they're just as queer. God I hate these cars, their drivers, and the fashion they've brought into the automotive community. I don't mind imports at all, I used to drive them. These cars are parking lot queens, all style with no substance. Each a copy of a copy of a copy, just like their lemming owners.

Maybe it's so that they can park anywhere without having to worry about getting a boot put on their car...

Do you guys want every single person to have the same mods, or tastes in vehicles? Who cares what they do to their car, move the **** on. Some people on here do stupid mods, too, but that's cool because they drive the same car as you?

Yes, people do stupid things with their Camaros too. But that doesn't automatically make this a good idea.

Not everyone has to have the same taste in cars or modding ... but some things just shouldn't be done to a car. Making it look like your axles are broken is one of them.
