|So yeah, Ricers. They're hilarious. In case you aren't aware of what a ricer is, or you are aware and you want to hear my awesome description - read on. A ricer is typically one of a few different cars, Civic, Cavalier and some other silly cars. The basis of a ricer is a cheap, fuel efficient car that some kids probably bought them, instead of spending their money on a real car, they "riced" it out, put a fart pipe on it, a stupid looking hood that is either carbon fiber or with some carbon fiber looking vinyl on it (Yes, I have seen someone do this..) kit that likely isn't painted, or is painted with primer and for the rich folk, its painted, but not even fitted right, expensive rims or stock rims with some kind of chrome looking hubcaps on them.
Typically, the cars look like crap in a poor attempt to look cool, they have zero potential for ever being a "fast" car. The most that most of these stupid do to their car is put a fart pipe and a cold air intake on it, neither of which add a GREAT DEAL of performance. I've seen some stupid bolt a turbo onto a civic and blow the engine a week later, hilarious that no one tells these idiots that a TURBO ISN'T A BOLT ON MOD! I guess I'd rather watch them blow their engine in their piece of crap than tell them anyway..
So yeah, what brought this whole thing on was someone trying to put my car in the class of a "Ricer" - their basis is that I have a nice speaker system, neon under kit and the biggest laugh - because it is an import. Well, I'll let you know something, there is no "Ricer" that came stock with 300HP, my car is a SPORTS CAR, not a ricer, I don't have a retarded fart pipe, I don't have a dumb looking fail-fitted kit, my car is stock with the exception of my air intake, most of my , performance clutch, performance , performance breaks (Because with 300HP, you need the stopping power) and some other random little add-ons that I have done over the past 3 years to it.
Now the run down for the typical ricers Civic - You will have spent more money on your car than I did, you will never achieve my HP without dumping thousands of dollars on a different that is built to handle a turbo, and you'll need a turbo, maybe then you'll achieve 300+ HP, until then you have 100HP or less to the wheels, stop thinking your car is cool, stop driving it like its a race car because all it is, is just another ricer.
So please, go buy a real car, something that moves faster than a snail. I beat Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes and many other cars that are also fast sports cars like mine, only difference is that mine is imported. I haven't done enough mods to it to even call it "high performance" - but I have done enough to it to beat most of the top of the line, American V8 cars.
Good luck doing that Civic and other ricer owners, stick to what your car was made for - , not racing, not looking "cool" - Because its all perception, the cars look like crap no matter what you do to them. I guess they'd look pretty cool in a crusher though. Hmm.
