They hang something there to let other ricers know that they want to "race". When you pull up to a light beside them, you rev up or talk to them about a new spot you know. Nobody over the age of 23 or anyone with a tuner does that shit. If you see that shit, expect it to be a civic or integra with powder blue rims, a park bench spoiler, and a fart can on it.
please explain the purpose stancefag
There is a purpose behind hanging a small toy or trinket from the bumper of your car. Like in OP posting. I never said anything about stancefags and there mindless destruction of good things in there never ending quest to go full retard.

Maybe that too. Whatever they do in Japan used to come through the filter to American ears as myths and legends about street racers, yakuza and "i know a guy who heard from a guy who lives in tokyo". That's just what I heard.
>FR sissycucks getting asstriggered again
These are the type of people we're dealing with, here.
no, these are the type of people we are dealing with
Wow, you took picture of junked cars, I can cherry pic some pics of junked FF cars too.
So assblasted that he shitposts and spams memes in order to supress his buyer's remorse and sour grapes towards FRs.
Watch them post autistic reaction pics, spout memes, and benchrace hard in a fit of rage.
>4chan actually felt for the civic maymay
ur FR is junk, prove me wrong
>mfw all the butthurt I caused with this post
tsukuba time for that MX-5 is for 1.5L JDM version, even NC miata is faster by a huge margin, not saying that 2.0L will be faster than FD2, but definitely much faster that whats on your sceershot
I have one hanging on the back of my motorcycle. Well tied under the fender. My little niece gave it to me when she was 2 so I would "be safe." Still there a year later. Just dirty as fuck.

that's adorable, m8
since nobody mentioned it, I heard that it was a Malaysian street racing custom based on superstition. When a driver died in an accident, their souls were supposed to haunt the road and attempt to kill other drivers. The toys are hung from the car to distract the spirits.
>hotlinking an image from a 2012 post in a forum
>that FR junk is STILL slower than FF
>barely faster than a civic
thanks bro. We were at a kids museum. I met my sister there on my bike. She didn't want me to leave without it. My uncle (biker fag in the bandidos) laughed at me until I told him who gave it to me and then he looked like your pic. I chuckled good.
>im totally him
no laptime = irrelevant
I think related.
this is a complicated thing that people do so I'm going to try and explain it to the best of my ability...
long ago, back when cars were first being produced in 1325, people were having one major issue with their automobiles, one could not simply drive and have their children with them in the car, as the cars themselves only had one seat for the driver, to compensate, the owners of the cars, stupidly, put stuffed animals on the back of their cars so that their children could hang on to the back and get dragged around. after the invention of the "passenger seat" in 1859, people still thought they needed to have their children be dragged behind them, nowadays, people honor this ancient tradition by hanging the stuffed animals from the bottom of their car.
again, it's a very interesting topic, with many layers as to why people hang shit off their back bumpers. i recommend looking into it for yourself, as again, it's a very amazing, complicated, and interesting topic.
The man she's with in the show is her dad who also drives an FR luxury car. Go wheep while you're crippled hind-legged dog of an FF can never become a luxury car.
Charms are really for high school kids that just want to get an occasional thumbs up from a stranger that "they know what's up, too". They grow out of it. I had one once as a satire:
> shitty NA FR
> slush and mud covered Pikachu under bumper for months
> top joke
> became turbo FR while owner became serious about life.
> Pikachu? That's fucken gay. *remove*
ITT: buyer's remorse conglomerate of shitbox owners praising their drivetrain setup literally designed to streamline and increase production output of said shitboxes.
Jesus fucking Christ are drivetrains cucks easy to bait.
ignoring the shitposting in this thread, I can't even be bothered to sift through it to see if the answer was posted so i'll say it
drift charms were a japanese thing originally, they would attach a small toy off their bumper so when drifting, the toy would swing and stay sideways from the wind and force pushing it
it was just a small joke, but US fags took it to heart and think it's "JDM as fuck"
I saw a R32 golf yesterday at the gas station yesterday with one on
I've been here since before the millionth post. It's always been like this...
that's how I feel about things like stickers/drift toys.
If a girl or one of the children I'm usually around (tfw babysit co-workers kids all the time) does something like that, I'll keep it. Still have Frozen stickers on my truck's fenders.
no the toy has been around for a long time. for an example these plus toys are a modification in the game Fast and the Furious (tokyo drift) way before the stance fagging. as >>14313870 posted, yeah its been around in the drift scene for years.
i was thinking of putting one on my frontier. my whole truck is stock tbhfam
Stance was originally a joke in japan because, why not. although american adopted it as a serious thing. Same thing with Shotakan pipes, originally it was to satirically mimic the old race cars with stubby up angled exhaust.
>calls me a weeb
>goes on 4chan
you should at least watch the mighty car mods japan specials
>Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires, while maintaining control from entry to exit of a corner.
>A car is drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle, to such an extent that often the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa, also known as opposite lock or counter-steering).
How do you achieve this with FWD?
Front tires pull you back into line, so you need to rely only on centripetal force (only achieved with little rear traction and enough front traction to keep moving around the corner) hence actual driving style/knowledge has almost nothing to do with it.
A fwd car on normal rubber on a dry/normal road CAN NOT drift. Stop it.
Plebs please btfo. Master race reporting in
I saw the shokotan subway handles first, but I have also seen a lot of toys as "drift charms" which remineds me of old jap "phone charms" that are little figures you hang off your phone (also big in Japan)
I don't mind it. Despite some of the community I think it adds flare.
Not that I'd get one myself its not the style I'm going for
