look up any word, like dirty sanchez:

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.

Ricers are idiots who do up japanese econoboxes in an attempt to make them look and sound fast. They can be seen blasting around the streets in first and second gear mostly because they love everyone to look at them redlining their car (hopefully a young high school girl will see him and think he looks gangsta).

This does not mean people who drive hondas and leave them stock are ricers, and people who have actual fast japanese cars are also ricers but not in the rediculous sense that true rice is.
that ricer seems to have a highly polished tin can on the end of the exhaust system for some reason...

Someone who owns a 90HP import with stickers for parts that arent installed and have lame body kits with StreetGlow and Muffler Whistles to make up for not having a turbo. Most own both copies of NFS:Underground, and love watching Fast and the Furious movies.
John: You hear that Jim?
Jim: Yea whats that annoying sound?
John: Thats Ricky Ricer in his '88 Honda Accord
Ricky: You hommies wanna watch Fast and the Furious on my used 7" TFT Head Unit?

Someone who does up their 4-cyl. car with colour-wheel coded paintjobs (to be tough) and front and rear and maybe middle spoilers in case the wind catches the car, as well as lights in various places for the purpose of atrracting coral spawn.

Car which has exhaust modifications to make it sound like a fart-fog horn but still has 115 HP and goes 0-60 in 13.2 seconds.
Breeeeeeee. There goes that Integra ricer.

Someone who buys for looks for their car rather than for performance.
Person 1: Hey look at that pimped out car!
Person 2: It's a ricer. Theres nothing under the hood.
Person 1: But look at the paint job, body kit, and spoiler!
Person 2: Exactly.

A Ricer:
A ricer is the person who drives a stock car, with extras that if anything slow the car down and make it less aerodynamic. (body kit, spoilers you name it) Yet it looks 'Sick/phat' - So its cool!!! - buts its slow.

How to identify a ricer driver: The typical driver of a riced up car, can be identified by the secondary monster tacho mounted where everyone can see it.

This is because the dick hanging from their forehead interferes with the perfectly good, stock tacho mounted conveiently in the dash cluter. And for those who dont know; the shift light is because they cant use their periferal vision.

They are incapable of reading the tacho and looking where they are going at once. They need a warning light (shift light) to tell them, their stock lancer engine, is about to explode and its time to change gears. Thank god for the monster tacho!

I think that sums it up...

Aiight most of you retards on here got it wrong. The term "Ricer" was originally used as a derogitory remark towards Asians. Then the term was used to describe Japanese motorcycles. From there it carried over to Japanese compact cars. Now it's used to describe ANYONE with ANY CAR that puts insanely gaudy shit on their cars that serves no real purpose other than to attempt to make it look good. It doesn't apply to people who are "all show and no go" unless that person truly believes that their all-show $2G body-kitted, $6G paint job, $3G wheels havin'... let's say '99 Civic Si (because the poor car seems to get riced the most) can beat my 432 HP 398 TQ Eclipse GSX. There's nothing wrong with a Civic, Integra or other cars that seem to get the worst rep because they've been riced so bad. I mean shit, I've seen a built B18C powered '92 Civic hatch SMOKE a Viper. SMOKE. BAD. But now if it was, say a Ford Probe with a GT-R badge and a crappy weld-on muffler trying to race a EVO 8 because he thinks that muffler added 50 HP and is louder than the EVO's exhaust, well, he's then a ricer.
V6 Mustang with Saleen body kit and Cobra-R wing
ANY CAR with spinning hubcaps
ANY CAR other than a Nissan Skyline GT-R with a GT-R badge
ANY CAR that has a body kit before having put on wheels AND an exhaust AT LEAST
ANY CAR that has an after market wing/spoiler without body kit/wheels/exhaust
Anyone who drives a Civic Si and doesn't know what Si and VTEC stand for
Unpainted body kits
ANYONE who thinks their car is faster than any I4 just because their car is a V8 (go learn how bad an EVO and WRX STi can smoke you... stock)
anyone who pisses on imports just because they're cheap to buy and cheap to modify (no wait I'm sorry you are just fucking stupid and ignorant wastes of skin)
anyone who thinks that by adding an intake and exhaust to your Civic/Integra/RSX blah blah blah will make it blazingly fast
ANYONE WHO ADDS PARTS AND DOESN'T SOMEHOW TUNE THE CAR TO GET THE MAX BENIFITS FROM THOSE PARTS
ANYONE with a weld on muffler on stock piping
I can go on forever... I'ma stop now
