People doesn't participate on any type of stancework crew or club and want to become the new preachers. Have you worked your susp on a daily basis? cuz I do, and I garantee that if you know what you are doing **** won't happen. lecture yourself...and yes your car is stanced and if you add bbs caps will be rice

First off, as you can tell, my car is for looks, not for performance. If my rims are going to be an LM rep, the centercap is that little extra piece that completes the look for me. Everyone who has ever seen my car and mentioned anything about my rims can tell you that the first thing out of my mouth is "they are replicas"...

Secondly, do yourself a favor and research a little bit before saying "stretching" is less dangerous than using fake wheels, lol. I have had CSL reps and these LM's on my car, and I can guarantee that these wheels are just as durable, if not more, than a real LM. I have seen countless threads over the past 5 years of BBS rims bending, cracking, etc from pot holes. I have hit some MONSTER holes with both sets of rims, and both were just fine.

Lastly, if Stance means rims, drop, and clean, well.. you might want to start a new club with a different name lol. When 90% of your "stancework" members have a retarded camber on a street car with a 2 inch poke on 215's, guess what... majority rules. As you can tell, no one on this website things that Stanceworks means a reasonable drop and a nice wheel/tire set up.

I'm not gonna go back and forth with you on this debate. I don't consider my car stanceworks in the least bit, nor do i consider it "rice" with my rims. Considering the company of "rice" is usually associated with loud farty exhaust, stickers, vinyls, dumb colors, tacky rims, altezzas, 1000lb of subs, and huge spoilers, my car is far from rice just because my rims are identical replica's of one of the best rims every produced.

Stance is not rice.
Replica wheels are not rice.
Rice is rice.

Russo, you said your car is for looks... well so is "stancing" the car. I know that was directed more towards djnekkon's reply, but some negative camber does improve handling, too much will definitely not be beneficial though.

I have so much respect for real JDM cars, or those that are trying to achieve JDM status

JDM gets over used and used incorrectly a lot.

But I agree, those S13s appear to be nicely done (ignoring the stickers). The one appears to be a "Sil80" conversion (very popular). Those cars are really great with a SR20DET swap.

With respect I don't see why you continue in this thread. It's just a "fun thread" and you're just pissing on it trying to derail it. You have 13 posts in this thread and yet only one photo of a riced car.

Metaphorically speaking, An expensive Basmati Rice is still a Rice just like cheap bleached short grain white Rice.


(for what it's worth, i like your sedan)

Oh, my bad... I just thought it was post your opinion of what rice is.

Those like me who had an A-spec integra and couldnt make the JDM convertions due to finantial reasons. You seem to know a lot about every car, don't you sir? make your own TISP manual. I might buy one, so i can learn something.

BUT I still dont see what all that has to do with rice, at least post a pic of one and leave my posts alone. lets get back to Topic.

JDM conversion? I guess I understand. Sort of. Still think JDM is over used and misused.

I hardly think I know I all. I'll b the first to acknowlegde learning something new.

That said, I am pretty connected in t Nissan world. I've done a true JDM SR20DET swap (U12 Bluebird SSS) in m G20 and did an article on the swap for Sport Compact Car. I built a money no object NA SR20DE that was a virtual duplicate of Mike Kojma's Project 200SX SR20DE from SCC. I've been racing off and on for 25 years. So, I do think I've accumulated some knowledge along the way. Certainly no disrespect.

Much as I make fun of Honduhs, man of them are great cars. I think Japanese cars don't get enough respect in German car circles.

Fair enough?
