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 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

1. An immature driver (who usually drives import cars, but have been known to drive dodge neons and ford contours as well), who "tricks out" their car with mostly useless modifications like a 6 inch exhaust, and an unreasonably large spoiler.

2. Any car with any combination of these mods. an unnecessarily large exhaust, unreasonable large spoiler, lambo doors, stickers to products they didn't actually purchase, big rims, body kits to make the car appear lower.

3. Spmeone who always drives around like their car's the "best mothafuckin car on da planet," and talk like they'll race and beat anybody, but when actually challenged to a race, back down and make excuses.

Sometimes they will actually race, and almost always get their ass kicked. Then after the race, they will either drive off upset and act like there was some great injustice delt to him, or just make lame excuses like "i would have won if my VTEC was working"

4. Stupid kid who's seen "the fast and the furious" way too many times
I beat this ricer badly, and then he told me that his headers weren't heading right, and his engine computer has a virus. What a tool.

I saw a badly riced out honda the other day with a spoiler the size of my kitchen table.

1. Anyone who thinks they know shit about cars but are usually wrong and make an ass out of themselves.
2. People who exagerate what their car is capeable of or claim it has beaten cars that it has no way in hell of beating.
3. Someone who thinks 39.99 Candian Tire add-on parts are "cool".
1a. Yeah, my golf redlines at 8700rmp!
1b. Honda's don't need their brakes bled! They have special system! - ricer
Get the fuck outta my garage! - me

One who puts a TYPE R sticker and/or an upside down Acura badge oh his/her honda civic. One who can fistfuck his/her exhaust pipe. One with a double decker spoiler on a front wheel drive, automatic, 120HP asian family vehicle.
usually those who wear abercrombie or something like Ecko or people with condoms on their heads (some call them "dough-rags")

When you see a kid who is rolling down the street with all show no go and knows nothing about his car and tries to talk "cool" about his car..when in all reality he knows nothing.
A kid who is not asian yet "tries" to be and has all different types of asian caligraphy on his/her car and is not asian whatsoever.
