And just to clarify, I don't driver a ricer I am just sick of hearing people say how bad young kids are just becuz there cars aren't the social norm. This is something I would expect to hear on a car forum or at an aarp meeting, not on a headfi forum
Man, you are way off-base. Just like Towert7 said quite well, I never stereotyped all "young kids" into one category. Just the ones that fix their cars up, purely for the purpose of racing around in groups, pole positioning on tight highways, causing constant accidents. And are you calling me an old folk? First of all, you don't think I was your age once?
Second of all, you think I drive in an '80's Cadillac? While I would enjoy an '11 Cadillac CTS Sport, I do own a Kawasaki ZX-14 and a Suzuki Katana 1100, and a car that has a V6 265 hp engine that does 0-60 in 6 seconds. I drive responsibly when there are other cars on the road, and have taken the ZX-14 up to 164 mph when the whole highway is open. So who are you calling old man? Now who's being stereotypical?
Also, I am the OP who has been hosting these meets for about 7 years, and everyone of the attendee regulars that know me, know what I meant. Your comments are not a very good way to make friends. These meets are extremely casual and the threads are always fun-spirited.

I'm headed to the funeral parlor tomorrow to pick out side by side plots tomorrow, 'cause, at my rickety old age, you never know.
