A tail pipe commonly put on rice racers to make a slow car seem faster by making it sound loud,an excessively large exhaust on a car, causing it to have a "farty" sound. rice Pipes are most commonly found on cheap, front-wheel drive imports (see honda civic or mitsubishi eclipse) that 16 year old kids who watch The "fast and furious" series like its some kind of religion. The rice pipe can be identified by one of many tests. 1) If the cross section of the muffler or muffler tip is GREATER than the contact patch on the car's tires, the exhaust is a rice pipe. 2)If the muffler is larger than the displacement of the motor, it is a rice pipe. 3) if the ricer takes off in his riced out car and the exhaust is louder than his stereo, it is declared a rice pipe. 4) and last but not least, if any piece of the exhaust system was purchased at Pep Boys, Autozone, or any other ricer oriented store, it is most likely a rice pipe.
Look at that rice pipe, that probably cost more than the car is worth.
