I'm sure that Japanese people (especially Do-Luck) will put them wings on their car just for the looks
I am sure it helps on a track. But, for a DDer it just seems out of place and unnessary. You did say you track your car so I guess it helps there. But, the definition of rice (IMHO) is something that serves no function other than looks, such the whole hellaflush look.

But, I respect that it is your taste and not mine. I just personally think big wings, ridiculously wide wheels w/crazy offsets, and N1/potato shooter/slant look exhausts are ugly and look riced out. Again that is my opinion. The only reason I posted in the first place is b/c everytime I log into NASIOC I see your car on the front page and I just had to say something.

I am into the clean look. I do not like when a wing, huge wheels, or fartcan exhausts detract from the look of the car. That is why I run 17x8s +48 offset on 225/45/17s, have a borla hush, and my trunk does not have a spoiler or wing...subtle/stealth. But, as long as you like it that is all that matters. If we all had the same taste the world would be a very boring place.
