ricerwork
Any Asian import car that has been modified for show or performance (or presumed performance). Although some like the Mazda RX-7, Toyota Supra, and Acura NSX are very capable cars that are superior to most of the shit coming out of Detroit since the 80s, most are economy cars that are poorly modified with cheap shit from Pep Boys.
Whoa! Look at that awesome Honda Civic with a 4-inch tailpipe, huge wing, and euro lights. I bet it owns at the track. Wait... you mean it's not National Sarcasm Day!?! Well forget that then.

Usually a young man with a car from Japan who uses cosmetic modifications rarther than using engine based mods. This is essentially the safer way to go for young boys on the cruise scene who cannot afford high performance mods for their engine due to insurance purposes.

Ricers usualy have:

Bodykits
Spoilers
Tints
Large Alloys
Lowering kits
Lighting kits
Audio enhancements

Although most people regard ricers as idiots, this is not the case. There are some who spoil it out there for us. Ricers can also be known as cruisers. Cruisers do not race and usually show off their cars in car parks with others that have the same interest.

Usually Hondas are used for the extensive amount of styling available. Engine mods can be put on later on as Honda's are one of the most tunable engines in the world. And to say that Honda's are no good, then tell that to the Halfords GT team that race using Integras and currently hold the championship.

Be owned.
Ricer/Cruiser: Someone who uses only cosmetic mods.

Predjudice: An act of Prejudice is, as the name implies, the process of "pre-judging" something. It implies coming to a judgment on a subject before learning where the preponderance of evidence actually lies, or forming a judgment without direct experience.

Just because you can't afford to do up your car, don't mock others because they can. In the end, it seems like jealousy.

The current definition of this term is anyone who thinks he/she's increasing the performance of his/her car but is actually uglifying it as well as reducing it performance.

Sometimes, this word is mistakenly used to refer to a tuner.
Example of a ricer: Owns a Honda Civic with a GTR badge on the gas tank cover, a big bodykit that actually increases drag and thus decreases performance, an exhaust that almost eliminates back-pressure and thus decreases performance, stickers everywhere, a really tall spoiler that gives the car more drag and thus reduces performance, huge chrome rims, thin tires which don't have a very long life, added weight (audio systems, the bodykit, the huge spoiler, etc.), bottles of "NAWWS", etc.

RICE stands for Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancement, which basically means buying parts that have no true function for a car to make it look as if it is fast with no engine or performance modifications to back it up. Most often, these cars are made by Honda and driven my people (called ricers) who do not actually know much about the innerworkings of their vehicle. These cars are made to look like cars used for racing and/or drifting such as a Toyota Supra or a Nissan 240SX.

antonym: Tuner
Tuner: "Silly ricer, useless wings are for penguins."
Ricer: "What?"
Tuner: "Dude, my lug nuts take more torque than your engine makes!"

An Asian car modified to look fast without going fast. Including but not limited to, exhaust tip (not exhaust or cat back), rims, bodykit, cardboard, tape, glue. Ricers do go into the the territory of hoopties. However hoopties are a much worse case. DOES NOT apply to American or European cars as RICE originated in Asia. Any American car that meets the descriptive definition of a Ricer is considered automatically a hooptie.

Any vehicle be it 4,6, or 8 cylinder with excessive amounts of useless objects on their car.
1. Spoiler on a FWD for drag puposes (ok if it is for road racing, contrary to what most believe, because it does help the back end of the car from loosing grip in hard cornering)
2. Stickers such as Powered by... or VTEC when it doesnt have it etc...(Again on a show vehicle stickers are ok because they must in order to keep sponsorship)
3.Mufflers = ricer, no horsepower added just noise
Exhaust = Racer, added horsepower
4. LEsson: Ricer's are not just honda's and acura's so dont trash them it makes people look ignorant when there are dozens of Imports that have been modified correctly and have power upwards of 500hp, and if you truly are a car person you know that thats good for any vehicle

thanks
