opinions, all go and no show?

ive decided to drop the looks effect, my car is in excelent condition i think im not gonna get rims and racing tires, im just gonan put all my money into my h22A and keep it a sleeper, what do u guys think, and maybe later on go for looks, i just want the speed first, to take out all the ricers in my town like the civic dx that painted his sideskirts with white wall-paint that is chipping and he has a big ass wing for that 102hp :clap

thats a good idea but sometimesd looks help performance cf hood and trunk shaves a lot of weight, and a nice set of light weight wheels

rims, tires, and a lower profile are always a good idea. Have to get that power to stick to the road. And corners are just too fun to stay stock

the closer the body is to the ground, the less drag......just don't bottom out w/ the header or anyhthing like that....solution: a small lip kit ;)

some things that look good can go for performance....take for instance some 16" rims. there are a LOT of them out there that are much lighter than the stock alloys or steelies. they're also well vented to help aid cooling of the brakes as you're coming around some corners....but the weight savings is the most critical.

if you want to go fast, upgrade the driver first, then suspension, then get the go fast goodies.

if your all go an no show, your on the right web board. thast what i am doing w/ the accord. its bone stock body wise besides the "distortion racing" stickers i have on my two back windows and my "honda performance motor sports" banner on the top back windshelid. ( i know flame away) but stock tail lights, corner lenses etc. but aftermarket bulbs

you'll definately get alot more respect all go, no show. or even if you want some show, make sure you have the power to back it up. i dont have any exterior mods on my car, except my clear corners. my rule is, look slower than you are, or people might consider you rice. i think your idea is pretty good. i would keep that thing's exterior stock and just surprise people

exactly, thats how everyone in my town is, loud ass exhausts, this one guy has a purple civic DX as i mentioned earlier, he peeled off the DX sticker, and in the parking lot i scoped it out closer and saw the faded DX mark, anywho, he has a big ass aluminum wing and a crazy ass muffler that sounds like hes flooring it no matter where he goes and his lips are painted with white house paint that are chipping, its how it is around here, and im the only 'sane one in my town with a honda thats not all show
i wanna surprise those kiddies who rev on my around town this summer and leave them thinking, WTF :wow

since accord come with 15" steelies if thats wat i am reading from your post..
go find some 16" steelies [it'd run you around 50~80 for all 4 of them] and get better tires on.
hmmm...nothing wrong with walmart, it's just brand they carry, there is good paints, but it's just too cheap.
i don't use any spray paint under $3 for my car.
oh no, what have I done, i turned into a ricer :ahh :hehe

by getting some lightweight rims, you can save 5lbs unsprung weight per rim. that will significantly affect the way the car handles...and it will be for the better :tu the hardest thing to do to the car is to loose weight, and lightness is one of the most important things to having a nimble car.
