No, but he is the race God that inspired me to take my accord to the maximum racecar level. Since my inspiration, race God is now a part of my accord. I also compete in formula rice.

At what point on that scale does one become riced? I personally feel that 7 cups should be the delimiting factor here.

It seems to me that many ricers spend much more time butchering/ricing their cars than is in that chart. Can we extrapolate?

I see a lot of rice that would be defined in barrels, not cups!

Of course, but that doesn't make one not a sports car. If we are limiting it to only the 1 top performing car, then only one car is a sports car at any given time.

There are tons of cars that perform better than your BRZ/FRS/86 that I wouldn't consider sports cars.

The point we were talking about was your definition of a sports car. And a Boxster is still FAR more of a sports car than your BRZ/FRS/86. A Cayman is also. They provide a different experience, and yes, on the track I prefer the Cayman. On the street, I'd go with the Boxster.

You have got to be joking.

Any vehicle car be riced, even a RWD lawnmower.

The bottom one will still be faster at the track, and so much more fun on straightaways without that torque dip! haha

I definitely do NOT miss that damn torque dip.

I'd save my breath as it's clear to me from that response that he's a troll.

tptwrc, keep thinking to yourself that "All FWD Hondas are ricers and the FR-S and BRZ are superior sports cars." Repeat that mantra to yourself as you're getting passed by a Civic on the track and maybe you'll convince yourself that it's true.

Not a troll. Just another guy that convinced that RWD = Performance and anything that is small is a sports car.
