Please explain, if you're running nitrous or any other Giddy Up go fast bits then why would you want to hide your mods? Let's here your reasons.

There's the sleeper effect too. You can surprise people when you actually want to race, and you don't get people revving at you in traffic trying to race when you don't want to. There's a lot of horrible drivers out there that do some pretty stupid stuff when they want to instigate a race.

Basically, it's nice to have a car that goes faster than people think it should. Rather than the other way around where it looks faster than it actually goes(ricers).

I just wanna run mid 11's with a bonestock looking car, but I do understand your point on the stupid driver. Too many idiots out there now days. All it takes is small exhaust tip now and they are revving on you. I dont even pay attention anymore.

Yup HATERS!!! I'm not talking about looks because I get revved on at least once a day. I'm talking about hiding mods under the hood and being deceptive.

Eby - you must be talking about your car. I've heard about your car. High 10's right? I think they said the last time you did that your bumper ripped off. Still haven't got it fixed.

Yea, that's right.

Just don't ask me to back it up, the cars running a little lean right now so no racing.

Oh, and I guess there's the fast and the furious reason. You know, if you're into illegal racing for money, it would be nice to have some NOS hidden under your passenger seat that nobody knew about.

Personally, I hide them because I like my interior to look clean. I could care less if someone knew what I had, considering word of mouth gets around anyways.

My .02 cents.

I like to be humble and hear people out but sometimes the s**t talk gets too deep and the end result is you stomping their face in it. Fast is fast but surprisingly fast is even better.

Kapa is all about the stealth mods. He will even have flashy chrome parts powdercoated black, just so they are more stealth.

Oh no....I have said too much, I am sure he will unleash the smilies on me!!
