Common and usually derogatory term used as a blanket explanation for the complex and popular resurgence of automotive culture among young adults, particular in terms of small-displacement Japanese
import modified vehicles.
Variances within the scene - with some cars barely modified, others heavily
massaged to generate impressive power, many optimized for handling, others still intended entirely for show/stereo competitions - have resulted in a great deal of criticism and confusion.
A compounding factor, historically, has been the reluctance of Japanese makers to export their most impressive hardware to North American markets. This trend is showing signs of reversing.
Those ricers. Don't they realize that internal combustion engineering progress topped out with the pushrod?
Young punks that dress themselves, and their cars, for 9 second runs down the quarter mile when in reality they can't break out of the 17's!
Look at that ricer driving around in his honda civic with a performance muffler.
Either a Japnease car tuned to sound like a crying baby, or the term used to describe a helpless teen that thinks his or her lawnmower-powered civic or eclipse could own
a Vette or Ferrari.
That cool civic
you see haulin' down the freeway with an airplane wing for a spoiler.
A term used to describe idiots, predominantly in North America, who take their cheap Japanese import cars, load them with body modifications, a new exhaust, and maybe an air filter, and then think they can win any street race because their car looks sleek.
Keep in mind, that no engine modification or any other type of performance enhancing modification is included in the ricing process.
I hate those stupid, stupid idiots who rice their little Honda Civics up and then think they can smoke anyone. They all stink and have poor math skills.
cars with fart mufflers not always a honda. usally a 16-20 year old that thinks he/she is hot shit
cars that go buzzzzzzzzzzzzz
a person who modifies his/her car for looks with bad taste, and no performance.
that ricer races anyone, and hasn't won a single race.
People who put huge wings on front wheel drive cars, huge body kits, terrible graphics, huge loud exhaust that sounds like a weedwhacker or go-kart or bees nest. ricers are people who think their car is fast when it really isnt. not all imports are rice, there is lots of domestic rice too.
that ricer thinks his civic will beat my 900 HP mustang
Read: Superfluous plastic accoutrements, including, but not limited to Alteeza lights, wings, bodykits, misc. other body parts (wheel flares, BMW gills, false air intakes, grills), contraband badges, parts taken off other cars and used for aesthetic purposes, and stickers particularly those of the Type R variety. Also includes pointless modifications such as functional/nonfunctional exhaust tips, exhaust resonators that produce the sound of a performance exhaust system, "cold air intakes" located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine), excessive use of chrome, neon and strobe lighting (in any location), excessively large wheels and tires, gaudy wheels(color matched to the car or containing spinning parts), brake rotors painted in a way that emulates performance brakes, and fake blow off valves that emulate the sounds made by a real turbo(s). In addition these types of vehicles are excessively lowered to the point of immobility.
Although a common blight in imported automobiles coming from the Asian continent, the disease has spread to European and American vehicles as well. Both cars and trucks are effected. Male owners under the age of 25 who suffer from an inflated sense of self and a small penis most frequently fall victim to this disease.
I can't believe that "Type R" Honda thinks he can really take on my stage 6 Audi S4.
That poor little Volkswagen GTI has been ruined by a ricer. We should gather funds for a rehabilitation project.
