A person who has a Japanese car that was made to go fast and handle well (Skyline, S2000, Impreza, RX7, even the Miata), and makes it go faster and handle better without making it look ugly is not a ricer.

A person who has a Japanese(typically, though ricers have been known to rice-out American and European cars) car (like the Civic) that was made to go slow, and makes the car look incredibly ugly by way of "aero kits" that are ineffective/detrimental to the car's aerodynamics is a ricer. This person could also have installed an "exhaust system" which eliminates all backpressure, including the backpressure the engine needs, which causes backfiring, loss of torque, and the infamous "farting in a coffee can" exhaust note. Furthermore, this person could have installed a set of comically large rims wrapped with almost non-existent tires, eliminating all sidewall and imparting to the car the ride qualities of a broken suspension. Lowering could have been performed by cutting the springs, which reduces ride height by softening the springs, which in turn renders the springs less useless. This is why ricers must slow to 2 miles per hour for speedbumps to avoid bottoming out.

The true hallmark of a ricer is that little to no useful engine modifications have been performed.
A non-ricer may have a small spoiler for rear downforce to even out weight distribution and increase stability at speed.

A ricer has so much "aero kits" that there is drag slowing the car, or the downforce that kicks in at speed will not let the car accelerate.

A person, usually a male under the age of 25, who buys an economy car(or is given one by their parents in the hopes that they will be reasonable) and attempts to hide the fact that its an economy car with body kits and spoilers that creat more drag than downforce, yet somehow (supposedly) help with acceleration and handling in a Front wheel drive car. Easily identified by the distinct sound of an extremely pissed off bumble bee, and a familiar, yet hard to describe smell coming from the exhaust, easliy smelled 10 car lengths back.

honda civic with no payments left on it bought by second owner who then tints the windows and puts a spoiler and fart cans.
Generally speaking, the owner
1.places decals on every visible surface.
2.Puts on clear altezza tail lamps just in case people didn't realize they are a ricer, not a nizzle!
3.Installs tailpipes aka fart pipes mimicking the sound of a geriatric patient with rectal prolapse.
4.may put neon lights on or under car
5.puts a stereo in which makes the cheap plastic add-on components rattle like a can being kicked down the street.
6.the owner may put a spoiler on the Civic so as to have more surface area upon which to place stickers, and to make sure the cops know there's weed in the car.
7.Ricers show their spirit by neutral -dropping their 150,000 plus mileage vehicles at the stoplight only to be subjected to total ownage by SUV's pulling large boats.
*Ricers are common in New Jersey now due to the fact that they stopped making Camaros
*Ricers are the more annoying of supspecies of neanderthal that put aftermarket rims and ghetto fabulous shizzle on their transportizzle.


The Queer Eye guys came today and trashed Joey's Furniture, Clothes, and his ricer. Maybe now he'll get a job and possibly even get laid!

Rice stands for "Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements".

A ricer is someone who owns a car, usually with about 120hp, but thinks a body kit, rims, airplane wing, fart can, stickers, decals, ect will make the car fast because it will look fast. Ricers believe that adding tacky body mods will somehow get them pussy and give them 400hp to the wheels. Ricers are usually stuck-up white kids who fall for marketing schemes from magazines and "import performance" websites, mezmorized by the pictures of bodykits and big fart cans, and believing the "dyno proven 100hp gains" written in the product descriptions.
Ricer buys 120hp Civic because hes broke.

Ricer watches Fast and the Furious and wants 500hp to the wheels and some pussy.

Ricer buys an import magazine and sees a body kit that gains him 200hp "dyno proven".

Ricer buys the body kit but hes too lazy to paint it the color of his Civic, but he puts it on anyway.

Ricer revs his fart can at girls and they laugh.

Ricer trys to race a 350Z and loses the $500 bet because he did the "math" and thought he had 537hp and would win, i guess not.

Ricer hangs himself because he fails at life.
