Below is the random thought titled "Ricer Causes Accident On Highway 401". Be aware that these thoughts may be based on opinion, and my opinion might not agree with yours. Also, the thought below may be based on mood, time of day, or any number of other factors. Please keep this in mind.
Normally, ricers are just an amusing diversion. Something to laugh at during a long and perhaps boring drive. After all, when some idiot with an 80 HP Honda Civic installs a 4 foot high aluminium wing, coffee can exhaust, lighted washer fluid nozzles and 50,000 stickers, the humour is obvious. However, things get serious whey they start endangering others on the road with their immature antics.
Such was the case on Saturday morning. I was driving from London to Toronto to attend an RX-7 engine build meet. I had just entered Toronto, an area on highway 401 where several exits and ramps converge to form a 6 lane super-highway. Being in the middle-right lane and only doing 70 MPH (at 75 MPG) I decided to switch to the righmost lane. My exit to the 400-North was coming up soon anyway. I signalled my intent, and just as I began to move between lanes, a dark metallic blue Honda CRX came up on my left. I heard the distinct sound of a fart-cannon exhaust, and could hear the muffled bass from what sounded like some sort of generic rap song. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Just your typical ricer. But what happened next was to prove me wrong.
Without signalling or regard for other traffic, the driver cut across three lanes into the leftmost lane. This brilliant manoeuvre cut off three drivers, causing two to slam on their brakes. Two cars were rear ended at over 80 MPH, and another nearly went into the median. This all happened so quickly that I couldn't believe what had just occurred. What I found most amazing was that the catalyst for these events, the rice-Honda, just continued driving as if nothing had happened! This being a major highway, all I could do was take my exit and continue on, hoping that someone had called the police (I do not carry a cell phone).
Now, obviously, this whole mess was caused by three things:
1. Idiot ricer who thinks public highways are his/her own personal race track.
2. Following too close
3. No taking appropriate evasive action
While under the letter of the law the drivers who rear ended the two other vehicles were at fault (because of reasons 1 and 2, which there is no excuse for), none of this should have happened. It was actually the fault of one boneheaded move by a ricer who fancies him/herself Mario Andretti (or perhaps more appropriately, some kind of Japanese "drifting" star). If Mr. Ricer had been driving like a sane person and paying attention, this could have been totally avoided. And of course, the icing on the cake is that this waste of space didn't even make the slightest effort to stop and help those probably seriously injured by the accident that he caused! Of course, what else should I expect from someone who believes putting a 4" tipped muffler on his base-model Honda CRX actually makes it a sports car. Just goes to show you how cowardly and dishonourable these people really are.
I would love to say this is an isolated incident, but sadly, this is far from true. Ever day I see riced out imports and domestics driving unsafely. Not signalling, going too fast for the conditions, weaving in and out of traffic, racing, and other idiotic manoeuvres seem to be commonplace for these children on a daily basis.
People wonder why I am so negative towards ricers. Well, there's your answer. The gene pool needs more chlorine.
|I took her traveling in my CRX. It's not as fast as it used to be, bu its still sickkkThe one from the mountain top, also, was not the one at all. Not the Golden One. She is now possibly suffering delusions and perhaps mental illness, or perhaps just personal crisis. Maybe the world is becoming normal again? Then then the other one....do i judge her too much? She doesn't mind riding in my CRX. I customized my CRX and we drove across the country, sleeping in the back. Maybe my judgement is the real problem. But there's just a feeling deep down that...no. At least she is not a believer in reptilians And oh the grief of loss this past year. But I know that there are may beautiful laps ahead. At Dads and there is a thunderstorm creeping in. It is spring. Springtime thunderstorms. And all I want is just a humbly pimped out CRX with a sunroof That DOES NOT LEAK I thought I was unafraid of death, but maybe I am more than I realize. Yes there are regrets, i with we didn't argue so much. I still feel her love. Cancer. We officially said goodbye this week the best we could. I hope it was enough.|
|My 1988 CRX Si has, alas, sat for over a year and a half without being driven. I was in the Southern Hemsphere, in love, and miserable. It NEEDS NEW TIRES! HOW The hell am I supposed to race without new tires?! Hard cornering and intensive meditations on impermnance have yeilded massve horsepower gans, yet MY TIRES HAVE FLAT SPOTS. Bulges. Dry rot. Perhaps a clutch upgrade or a paint job will suffice, yet still the connecton to planet Earth is missing. The connection to my lover. The connection to my steering linkage. I sought to convert to 4 wheel disk brakes. Brembo, even....and yet I found that I already had 4 wheel disk brakes! What does a man (or a WOMAN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!) upgrade to when there are no parts left to upgrade? Where is the street race when there are no more street races? Not even a crotch rocket was enough to bing this conundrum of spiritual crses into alignment, and it's only gotten worse. But I WILL NOT sell my CRX, I have decided. I have firmly decided that I won't sell it. It is the greatest gift I have ever recieved, even when it feels like a burden that I have to buy tires for. No, will keep it. I will fix it. I will upgrade it. And I will, once again, drive fast on public roads! Aho|
|Last January I drove my CRX Si to Argentina. Boy did I ever get myself into a mess. Now twice-16, I have found myself slowly dying. COVID taught me that I am powerless, even with a turbocharger. Even with NOS. Months upon months living in a tent, racing my 1988 CRX into town twice a month for supplies. I decided my pimp rkde would look better with a hot bitch in the passenger seat, yet this hot bitch alas turned out to be a conspiracy theorist who WANTED TO DATE OTHER MEN and soul crushing. I'll never love again. I sold my sportbike and bought wibdow tint and an engine swap (again, MY CAR HAS TWO ENGINES!). And nlw here I sit aside the tricklibg waters of the river next to town and I am either irreparrably mentally fucked up, or awakening. This is the best I can do. It's been 15 year. 15. I can't even motivate myself repaint my bodykit (even just with spraypaint). Surrender|
|my brother has crx si (2juicy) it is SICK bih burn oil tho... puffy white :((|
|The automobile, once considered essential to my personal happiness, has now become superfluous. I'ver tried to rice my life, but it just can't be done. A new career, a new image, and a new vocabulary.....none have provided any success in the melding of my heart and soul. Today, I drove my CRX to Nepal in search of answers; answers that I have always known could never be be found within a familiar horizon. Perhaps I could tint the windows of my soul and turbocharge the fire that has always burned so bright in my heart cave....but in the end, all that would be left is a hollow man who has spent way too much of his adult life commenting and re-commenting on the same old blog post from 11 years ago. Oh how my soul yearns to find any shred of meaning in this hollow existence. How the sense of oneness with God has been ripped out of my grasp, and now all I am left to do it downshift, pull my emergency brake, and drift into the parking lot of the nearest Taco Bell, where maybe I can find a way forward and out of this dark hopeless hell that this entire year has been. Even though it has been fun driving my dope candy red 1990 CRX SI (with Enkei wheels and a Wings West body kit) up to the mountain top. Perhaps at this mountain top I met my twin flame, but allowed her to slip away in her camper van as she returned to the desert to take care of an invalid. Or perhaps I should have quit my job on the spot back in July and sought truth, love, and justice. Maybe I'll drive back to Europe, or Hawaii, or straight out into the ocean where nothing can ever find me and I'll just live out there and eat fish and drink desalinated seawater from an improvised still built into the custom hood of my CRX. My whip can drive in the ocean, deal with it. Thus far, I have not been good at adapting to new technologies, nor has the status quo made any sense to me. But I graduated college and I'm confident that I could find a way to fit 24" spinner rims on my CRX. Doubt me and I'll prove you wrong. Can I? I can. I can? I CAN!|
|A boy once dreaming of the visceral joys of driving a customized CRX. A young man grappling with the reality of owning a used Audi. A decade in flux has yielded a man whose foundation is rooted in solid rock. From the depths of existential depression to the highs of carnal pleasure and (more importantly)self-actualization, this decade has proven a true period of reflection, growth, exploration, and discovery. This journey has not been easy, but of course a tree that does not know the wind will not survive the storm. I am thankful for every single thing I have experienced. From the snow capped mountains of the Pacific Northwest to the beaches of Spain, the vibrant streets of Croatia and the busy markets of Asia, warm nights in Mexico and cold nights in Norway. I cherish these times, and I look forward to an opportunity to continue my spiritual growth. Beyond lust for a high performance automobile, or any of the egoic delights that one could possibly bring, we find peace and contentment in a mere state of being. Discover what your dream is and chase it. Sitting in the driver's seat of the Honda CRX called 'life', one hand firmly on the wheel, the other gripping the shifter. I select my gear, shift and engage. The inter-cooled turbocharger of my being roars with life and passion, and my spiritual spoiler keeps me grounded. As I shed the wings west bodykit of my ego, I emerge a stronger man. I am a healer; a mechanic of the spirit. Rebuilt; I am. I am. I.|
|I'm 55 yrs old & been driving a CRX since 2002 & love the car to death, I do not street race but love the way it handles in traffic. It's quick responsiveness & tight handling (need I say the great mileage?) make it worth every minute behind the wheel..|
|Hey guys...wow, where to start? Well I used drive a Honda CRX with lots of stickers, a loud exhaust, and dark tinted windows. I posted on this page about 5 years ago (under the same name) to defend myself, but now my views have changed. You see, I drove that car when I was in the midst of a great identity crisis, and a minor addiction to prescription painkillers. At this time I even changed my name to "D-Pimp". My car was the crown jewel of my personal identity meltdown. I believe that the following statement will explain everything: -ahem- Things have changed now. They have changed. Things are not the way they used to be. The boy has grown. The man has emerged. Farewell, butterfly. 1991 CRX: a popotomous, pompous quest; a tired car. The man prevails. The life-giving waters, the pervasive colors. They do THIS to me. Four tires, one pipe, and two handles the both of us to hold; one for you, and one for I. Do you understand?|
|wow, this has been a strait bitch fest since 2005 haha this is funny. ricers vs muscle, muscle wins every time. the only time this doesnt apply is when either motorcycles or exotics are involved. reason why muscle wins. 1. for a ricer to even get enough horsepower and torque to be considered a pain in my ass you have to go with some kind of forced induction, ie turbo/super, or nos. and a motor beef up/ rebuild of gaskets to handle forced induction 2. after which comes programing to your tinny winny computer for your tinny winny motor. 3. trans and rear work to balance out horsepower to torque ratios 4. suspension and brakeing needed to handle the increase of horsepower and torque now after youve done all that and have now dropped between 8-15 grand into your ricer youre probably pushing enough for me to see you in my rear view. BUT lets just say that for some strange reason (youre a retard and dropped 60 grand into a ricer) and you beat me. NOW PAY ATTENTION!!!! all that which you just did to your 150 hp 4 banger of fury, i can do to my V8 and thats why muscle wins.|
|I don't even like people whot "tune" front wheel drive cars. Swap an engine into a Civic and supercharge it and guess what you get. Assloads of torque steer and way more power then the front wheels could ever handle. Learn physics you morons. You want to "tune" a car. Save up a little. Buy a v6 mustang. Great basis for amazing performance. And rwd to help put that power to the pavement and not make it push into the outside of a corner. I myself own a first gen Mazda Miata. Owned a dodge neon before that. I WILL NEVER buy another FWD vehicle again. To conclude. Fuck ricersm|
|fuck u and ur m3 nobody wats dat pece of crap omg heated seats n all dat pussy shit da only girls u would get r golddigger n u no it do da best shit n HOTBOX A HONDA N FUCK U IF U THINK DIFFRENT I FUKKIN H8 UR M3 FUKIN WHOOPDEDOO PIECA SHIT
(Editor's notes: Can someone translate this to English?)
|haha you fuckin tool your driving a ricer to fuckin jap scrap mazda haha you where probably racing him you goof piece of shit lol go die now|
|David you can't even spell. So obviously your pour your life savings into a car no one will ever buy off you other then a 16 year old who just got his g2 and is looking for a cheap car. Or your gonna be stuck with it till you 70 and its worthless. You and your ricers just piss me off. You cut of traffic and play rap music way to loud, and your white. Not even to mention Your all a bunch of skinny guys who can't get smart, attractive girls who do something for a living other then hang out with losers like yourselves. Oh yeah, if you really want to talk see if that "fart can" of a car you have can even compare my 2008 BMW M5. Because it really wont. So enjoy working at Mcdonald's and saving every last penny for some other dollar store woopie cushion you put in your muffler.|
|"Hondas rule the world".................. prove it? For some reason i bet the corvette ether didnt have a driver or going in reverse. HOWEVER. Even if say.... you did... Put a supercharge in the corvette next time too instead of basing a race against a domestic luxury car when you make your car a freaking race car and we'll see. Pussy.|
|OMG ru guys still aruing about this zhit??!! well then wft, y do u always have to h8 on 2ners?! seriesly u guyz need to get lifes. my civic is still da shit, even sence last time i comnted on dis shit...sense uve last herd from me, ive added a short ram intacke to my engine and also a muffler with the header and it sound wikkid to $ay da least. i finally finnist up da bodykit and painted it electrec blue an dat shit is pimp ans hell. ive added a lot moar to my car and its still teh shit. year, hoes lyke it!
(Editor's notes: Spelling. Learn it. Live it. Know it.)
|no offense to the Japs, Ricers are $h!#. Get an M3 if u want real german performance because german(and italian and british and swedish) rule over all your sorry A$$es! Eat that! (I finally got my anger out) I hate to say it, but i actually think the new gtr is pretty cool. I dont think anyone could call that a ricer because im getting one and i dont have the heart to tear it apart and put a bunch of nismo shit on it.|
|Drivers of modified vehicles may seem to be more likely to engage in risky driving, I have found that drivers of all types of vehicles are equally stupid. The tag cloud at my site, youdrivelikeshit.com currently shows cellphones, 3 series, Camry, and Elantra drivers to be the biggest offenders so far, but I still need to make 5 more entries for the day. Surprisingly, the only "ricer" (and I use that term loosely) vehicle I have added so far was an Evo where neither the driver or his passenger were buckled up. Nice write up - too bad you couldn't get a plate for the police.|
|you know wat we call it in aus, wank factor. a flouro green piant job is just dumb you know wy cuz the the cops will tial you like a shit on a blanket thats why! when ur 16 and youv first got ure licence you feel the need to go a bit crazy and thats ok as long as you dont endanger peoples lives|
|It seems to me there is no concrete definition for the term "Ricer". I took my '88 RX-7 GXL out on a highway and got it up to 125 mph... does that make me a ricer? I don't think so... But that's just because there wasn't any traffic... What do I do when I'm in traffic? I try to obey the laws of the road to a tee. Sure I get pissed at people who drive like "ricers" like anybody else. I havn't wrecked a car in my life or even recieved a ticket. I'm 17, and I realize that most people in this message board probably see me as a "Immature kid", but I try to drive as accurate as possible. I can't stand it when people weave in and out of traffic that is moving at the correct speed, but I also can't stand when people feel the need to drive 20 in a 35mph... That's when I start passing people. I also understand that some people don't know that the "On ramp" on the free way is called the "acceleration lane" like in the driver's handbook. Sure, I've done acts in the past that I frown apon now. (that doughnut in the middle of the empty intersection sure was fun though) Am I a ricer? Or just nuts? I can't stand the way my older sister drives... she is ten years older than me and "tailgates" everybody on the highway... she drives a Mazda 3... is she a ricer? Or is it just a case of poor distance judgment?
Hey Aaron, if you want to, go ahead and pin the ricer label on me; it might change my outlook on myself... the only thing that will change my driving style though will be my first (and quite possibly last) "accident."
(Editor's notes: You're not a ricer, but driving 125MPH on a public highway is putting everyone else in danger. Take it to the track where it belongs.)
|ricers don't have to be japanese, they can be American or Euro cars, just that they have exterior modifications that are supposed make them look cool and fast, but they just end up looking like shit|
|heyy i rlli lyke thys but thys storii bored me soooo muchh so shut di fuk uppp nd get di fuk outttta here BITCH=D
nddd mehh gayallll mekk wylllllll fuk u upppppp!! haha jkin
(Editor's notes: Huh?)
|i hate ricers they bring a bad name to actual TUNERS who know what theyre doing. I fuckn hate a stupid ricer pulls up wth their beat dented integras with those nasty primers(like theyre actually going to do something) and fart cans. Sometimes i also see the driver with there hood on half way on its very annoying. They pull up like theyre are the shit like "look at me i sooo cool with my car that my parents bought me". I hate ass wipe ricers especially those 16 yr olds with g35's and think theyre sooo tight those spoiled parent ass kissers|
|2002 Pontiac Sunfire, $14, 569 Canadian Tire Exaust Tip, $11.75 Plastic 14 Inch Spiners, $34.95 Racing My Mothers Mini-Van and Losing, PRICELESS Hey I drive a Caravan...its my daily driver and i have a 3 y/o son who i cart around in it but...I also have 18" rims on Pirelli Scorpions, K&N Intake, SRT-4 pistons, replaced exhaust manifold on down to a cat-back Magnaflow Exhaust system and I'm looking for a machine shop to make some headers since the market is closed on custom minivans like that...and then i wanna see who makes turbo i can fit in there but i dont think im a ricer for that since there are actually performance parts going into the car as opposed to superficial stickers and hood scoops etc.. but when im at a light and sum "gangstas" pull up or get in the parking lane to cut around the "soccer mom" i love the look on their face when they pull up to the next light after theyve been taught a lesson. Yes the person who caused that accident was a ricer, yes it JUST so happened he was driving a go kart with a honda emblem on it...stereotypical? yes...more truth than most stereotypes? sure...but it all falls down to the fact that if the idiot was in any other car chances are he would have been driving the SAME way...and yes most FWD arent true performance cars...but the SRT-4 is FWD and you really cant argue the numbers too much on that..|
|i got a question i got a mitsubishi lancer O-Z. i got a chrome exaust tip just to make it look better. does that make me a ricer?
(Editor's notes: No, no really. It's just an exhaust tip and as long as it's tasteful then don't worry about it.)

|Who really cares what your civic si or mitsibishi eclipse or your camaro or your corvette or whatever car everyone seems to be bragging about can do. So your all good drivers who appreciate cars and the speeds their capable of. Like whats been said so many times already the point here is there are some people out there with some serious driving problems who cant drive worth a shit thats the only thing important here Drive your cars to importfest or musclecar fest or wherever you go to talk shit about your cars but here we're talkin about the very shitty state of many drivers today. Btw im a 20 year old male whos been driving for four years without any accident whatsoever so age doesnt mean fuck all!|
|That figures Aaron. I see that shit everyday. There are days that I wish that I could pull over the morons. Just the other day after looking both ways twice and proceeding to make the right hand turn towards work. I had to step on it cause some dumbass in a Nissan Maxima came around the corner to my left well over the posted speed limit. Due to the fact that we received ten inches of snow and the plow drivers piled it all at the corner making a wonderful blind spot. So any how I'm trucking right along and this dumbshit is driving like it is the Daytona five hundred. I mean it looked to me as if he wanted to bump draft me so that he could get to the lead. The sad thing is here is this moron driving like he owns the road with a young child in the front seat which is illegal where I come from. So lets say some dumbshit pulls out in front of me and I have to do some defensive driving. You know what happens it is called the accordian effect. Guess what happens to the kid. I hate to say it but the average IQ of Americans is 98. That means there are 150 million dumbshits in America. It does not matter if your are college educated either. Cause where I work which is a hospital most of the people that I have to rely on if I'm injured or sick aren't the kind of people I would trust a goldfish with. Heres a good one for you. I was a driving to the pool hall one day in mid to heavy traffic on a four lane road. There was a ricer in a little Subaru whipping back and forth lane to lane beating the hell out of the clutch riding the bumper of the car in front of him. The sad thing is I stayed in the same lane and ended up in front of him never getting within two car lengths of the vehicle in front of me. A lot of people must think they are Mario or Dale Sr. But the truth is that there was only one Dale Sr. and Mario.|
|ananymous, u SUCK!!!!!!!!!!! Beamers are awesome! My dad has a bmw m5 and it ruless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It can go 200 mph and its a fricken SEDAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY case stands!|
|All you assholes think you know how to drive and that you are the best at it. We all know that we all have scared ourselves so bad that now we won't even think about trying something like that again. My point is that some, not all,some of you buy cars because you can afford it. Stop and think of all the kids out here who can't just go out and buy a Mercedes, so we do what we can with what we have, and if it is a Honda it will probably go a hell of alot faster then your E55, and look better too. I think you're just mad because a 20 year old knows more than you; and if he had money for a E55 he would tell you that first, only the SL models are good to buy, and trying to be a guy in a E55 just looks gay. Yeah you got money but you're not a good driver. I just hate when we go out for a drive and see all the old guys in their BMW and Mercedes. They look at us and just wish they could be 20 again, and maybe learn that a big Mercedes won't make you a better driver. It will just make you mad when a $500 car passes you and a stone jumps up and messes up your paint. Some guys just can't drive and don't even think about others. They could kill someone. All I can say is how I feel, and I do not feel right picking on someone that just might be better at spending then driving so all of you do the speed limit and be kind out there. The 401 needs to be fixed up: lets talk about that.|

|FUCK the japs and their god damn civics GET A FRICKEN CORVET Z06 IF U WANT REAL RAW POWER|
|First I agree, 4cylinders and 6 inch exhaust pipe is usually the first indication of a dumb ass, add a wing and a cell phone and it's a sure bet. I drive a SUV, a huge hulking 4x4 four door diesel, and for the record, we get 23 MPG too. At least a dozen times in the last six months, I have been cut off or otherwise dis-respected by one of you Ricer Dorks. I could care less what you guys drive, but you need to learn to drive it better. It sure will piss me off to get yellow and green paint on the bottom side of my axles and frame rails.|
|I respect people who actually take time to mod their cars, not just go to "Minute Muffler" and ask them to throw the loudest can on their car. I respect the people who custom fabricate parts for their cars, whether it be a roll cage, or an cold air intake. I dislike the people who have pre-conceived notions about all imports. I have noticed that the Domestic guys see all imports as Honda Civics with fart bombs. This is in some situations, not the case. I own a Datsun 280zx. I dont expect everyone to know what that is, but it is an import. It is basically all stock, and it still turns heads all the time. Cliff Notes: -Please, no fart bombs. -Not all imports suck. -V8's sound awesome. -I have no respect for "Joe Civic Y0"(with a fart can) -I have respect for people who take the time and effort to modify their cars, even if it is not to my liking. -Your stock Honda Civic is NOT fast. -Your swapped, turbo'ed, and intercooled Civic most likely is fast. Congratulations. -Datsuns are awesome.(Even the domestic guys respect them) Thanks, Derek|
|Let me see if I understand this right. A ricer is not someone who owns an Asian car with proper tuner modifications for style and power and parades the style sensibly around the street and flexes the power at the track. A ricer is someone who owns any car (preferably a bone stock ricer with stickers, fart can, etc) and drives on the street like a possessed moron. Right?
For some real fun with ricers check out "Beaterz.com"
(Editor's notes: Yep.)
|First of all ALL PEOPLE THAT DRIVE HONDAS ARE NOT RICERS. Most are but not all them so stfu whoever said honda sucks. Sure there are ricers but not all.|
|I hate to digress from the primary message of the subject, or the name calling and boasting of the replies, but I feel like adding a few facts to open the eyes of the readers of this particular board. 1. A spoiler is a extension on the back of a vehicle designed specifically for downforce. An example of a spoiler is the factory appearance of 2nd generation camaros. A wing is essentially an upside down airplane wing, also with the purpose of creating downforce. 2. A wing does nothing but add aerodynamic drag to a vehicle, if it is not specicfically tuned to the vehicle it is mounted to. 3. The main reasons that FWD cars are generally not considered performance cars include torque steer, a condition that occurs when too much power is put to the steering wheels/tires which causes problems in handling. Also, in a drag racing application, during heavy acceleration, weight is shifted to the rear of the car, causing traction loss. P.S. Grammar loves you, why must you mistreat it?|
|the editors comments regarding performance cars and front wheel drive are right on the money. Front wheel drive is for econo boxes and if i remember correctly Audi published a paper in the mid 80s stating that the theoretical limit for front wheel drive is 200hp. having owned high power FWD cars including a turbo intercooled 200Lb/ft torque FWD car i know that handling in these cars does not come close to RWD/AWD. why is it that BMW, mercedes etc have NEVER had a performance vehicle in FWD..... it is a good city car meant for inter city commuting - stay off the highways. BTW - any of you small L4 engine owners - experience REAL power - get something with torque exceeding 300lb/ft and RWD - then come talking!|
|hey i'll be honest, yea i love driving fast and i like putting mods into my car which is a 92 talon tsi awd which runs 10.22 @134mph, but i dont have a "fart can" on the back of it. I love the rush when im goin those speeds, but i do it at the track. There is a difference between a "ricer" and a person who likes to squeel the tires here and there-a ricer will have nothing to a little intake in his car and has mostly stickers all over the damn place, and a "fart can", body kit, wing etc. and revs his engine thinking hes hot shit. A person who likes to squeel the tires here and there isnt. That person doesnt go out and goes looking for people to show off to every damn friday night. If a "ricer" revs his engine at me, i might take off a little bit just to prove to him that hes not the fastest, but i dont go in and outta traffic like a fuckin retard, but yes i do hate those fuckers swerving in and outta traffic-thats a ricer!|
|Import fans (specificaly Honda and toyota fans) are the biggest tolitarians in automotive world. They are willing INTIMIDATE and decived people with their BS's
I am asian and I am straying away from they bloody stereotypes. If Blacks drives pimpmobiles, Asian drive the goddamned japanese cars (Toyota and Honda) . Hell I dont give sh-t about "repairs".
Mazda, Nissan and Suzuki are probably the least offensive and they are the least arrogant.
If a honda fans heared you are buying a GM, Chrysler or Ford (even after reading a Consumer Report) They will f--k you up good with their argument that all domestics are trash.
Honda fans sucks, not Honda cars. The sucks as much as rednecks. I rather buy a Mustang everyday than a "souped up" civics. Civics got poor proportions and a first choice for 16-year old teenees with small penis.
A lot of ricer drivers are very aggressive (honda owners are worse). Even worse if they seen a Mustang or Camaro on site..they like to brag their Hi-Tech POS.
Yes face it Mustang weight 3000+ vs a Civic. How can a bloody civic get all the "juice"? it takes them 9000RPM just to get a decent power to challenge a Mustang. Mustang is a honest no nonsense car you get good power with out these expensive bullsh-ts.
(Editor's notes: Great, now someone has brought racial lines into this...wonderful...)
|I was a victim of a ricer accident when I was 13 years old and to this day have chronic back pain from my injuries. I am 19 now and just bought a 97 Mustang GT. American cars all the way! I agree Ricers are $^#$^$#!!#%$#^%^%$&^%$#$%^%$#^%$#^%$#^%$#^!'s I am so sick and tired of hearing their F!#@ing mouths if they were half as bad as they talked they would be something cool. But they are just freakin like their exhausts f!@#ing all talk. Fu#$ every F!@@ing one of the little @$$holes. Anyone of them that wants to F@ck with me come to rockingham, NC drag strip on Friday nights ask for Matthew. The black 1997 Mustang GT. WARNING bring a whole lot. I came here just to vent my frustration and to say to all ricers you are pieces of $hit!!! Screw YOU!!! I put up with back pain every day b/c of you ignorant, irresponsible, none-driving, big mouthed, $hit talkin, no good, presumptuous, @$$HOLES!!!|
|It is an unfortunate thing that someone like the "anonymous" ricer can actually read what he has written and not come to a realization that he is a complete idiot. Proof that obtaining a driver's license does not require much skill. His prose would have him failing at the 8 year old schoolastic level.|
|OK So I AGREE that it's MORON drivers out there but what makes you think it's punk assed "kids?!?!" I sat in traffic for FOUR friggin' hours on Friday and almost missed a bob dylan concert because of an old fart asshole that was in a hurry. It's not always the "punk ass kids" that drive to fast. You can't GENERALIZE careless driving.. It's ALOT OF PEOPLE even speeding middle age asshole business men in a mercedes or BMW . It's RIDICULOUS!!! So, my BIGGEST PET PEVE about the friggin' 401 is that it's a STRAIGHT HIGHWAY!!!!!!! 3 LANEs or whatever! That go STRAIGHT...There is NO reason for accidents!!!!!It's the people that don't check their blindspots and change lanes and the idiots that drive too fast AND too slow.. I'm sorry but you CAN NOT GO 100 on the 401 anymore....
(Editor's notes: If you want to drive 100KM/H, stay in the right lane. Easy. If you want to drive faster, use the middle lane. The leftmost lane is for passing. It's called "lane discipline". But by far the most idiotic drivers are damn kids that think the world is their personal race track.)
|A ricer just thinks there car is fast. They think because they drop in one of those silly Cold Air Intakes "notice the word cold" Aint it nice and hot under the hood? you lose power! I HATE THOSE FAKE HOOD SCOOPS GET A LIFE! rims that spin when your not moveing LMAO electric superchargers OMG nice folgers exhaust!!! I build racing engines and never in my life have i seen so much silly,lame,JUNK! What you end up with is a silly untuned car that makes less power and has no real purpose other then looks. All show and no go thats a ricer! If you really think those snake oil products bolt on garbage and neon lights make you faster you got problems. If i see you at a red light reving up your economy car i wont race you because ill be trying so hard not to laugh.|
|going back to the original article. "Without signalling or regard for other traffic, the driver cut across three lanes into the leftmost lane" what ever happend to that old rule (that you see on highway signs all the time) "YEILD TO FASTER TRAFFIC" Yes there are definetely a lot of bad drivers out there, but the blame cant all rest on the guy who cuts across a couple lanes. what about those people who sit in the left hand lane, what used to be the "fast" lane, like they're out for a nice sunday drive. dont slow down traffic because you're too ignorent to change lanes a few times. i am an agressive driver, but if someone is coming up on my tail faster than i'm going, i get outta the way for them. no matter what they're driving. the frustration i get is when there is a normal amount of traffic, the left lane is full of cars doing 65MPH, only paying attention to the car in front of them. how is it that there is enough open space on the highway for me to do 80MPH, changing lanes, weaving a little if you will, meanwhile half of the other cars are strolling along at 65MPH. how is it that there is so much highway that i can go 15MPH faster than everyone else? if ya want to drive slow i've got no problem with that. but STAY OUT OF THE FAST LANE. stop holding up traffic because you're too lazy to change lanes.|
|the term ricer may not be racist to one ethnic group but the term hillbilly or nigga isnt racist to me but it is for other ethnic groups|
|ok yea stupid drivers r stupid so matter wat they drive. may it be american or japanese. but i am gettin tired of this shit i read all of this n it makes me so mad. quit usin the term Ricer, just say stupid ass driver or racer or something. how about me callin out crackers on the road. damn look at that supidass cracker. how about that? so yes i agree to the fact that there r stupid drivers but dont bash on econo cars cus they will save what we have left of this earth n dont call out "ricer" its a racist term. n it doesnt matter if some crx has body kit n no performance. its their taste, maybe they like the look better and dont know much about the performance? does tat make them a poser?
(Editor's notes: The term "ricer" not racist.)
|i was under the impression when you put a muffler tip on a ricer the signals just stopped working..|
|I drive a domestic car and i love it no ricers|
|I dont like ricers that come up beside me and wanna race their pansy ass car against mine on some busy road, its just stupid most, and dont give me the not all ricers are made to do dumb things in rap, if you dont race on tracks and u still rice out your car where r u going to go fast? on the street, the reason it was built, most guys with ricers are not responsible drivers. just to be clear I drive a '93 dodge stealth (yes, FWD Mr. Editor), similar to the famed mitsubishi 3000GT, both of which are performance cars. I run the factory 225 horse and yes i have done dumb things with it, that does not make my japenese built car a ricer, just for the record it will go 0-60 in about 6-6.5 seconds but i dont use that on the streets, and yes i just forgot the point i was trying to make so, my car canbeat your car jk!! p.s. All ricers that think they can beat any muscle car, try racing my buddy's 69' Camaro(what a beautiful car) pushing 1400+ horse and some 1360's torque (dyno tested) BYAH!|
|tEh h0nd4 cAn nEvA LoSe yO (cUz iT gOtZ mAd kRaZy vTeCk yO) g0t r|c3???|
|i dont think that this has anything do do with "RICERS" thats a load of crap. Ive been driving for about 10 years and a majority of accidents ive seen or a reckless driving not only caused by RICERS. Im fed up of people thinking because a car has some "Fast n furious" crap that it is them that causes accidents. thats like saying every muslim bombs buildings. it all depends on the person, sure it might be that the car is done up or he or she thinks they can do what ever they want. it can also mean that there could have been an emergency or that the person just stole the car in this case. but to think just cause the car was somewhat done up that thats the reason for accidents. IT DOSENT MATTER WHAT CAR A PERSON DRIVES IF THEY ARE AN IDIOT . thanks|
|Haha this guy I know almost died in a Honda Civic last thursday on the 401. He survived. Unfortunate, I know.|
|I drive a 4 second 1/4 car smokes everything out there lol............lame who cares how fast your car is the point is that nobody should race in the street nomatter what car you drive.|
|all u guys all turned staright i av raced before and l i drove a 2005 subaru and it was soo suped up it reached nearly 200 mph|
|i am cool i drive my 1988 honda civic i make 436 horsepower on a dyno with the stickers i added to the car the rust spots on the body of my car give me more areodynamic flow so that i can get 5 second 1/4 drag times. yes i am very cool|
|Most ricers are losers who try to impress their blowup doll girlfriends by reving their 102 HP civic at a red light looking to race the mild mannered "whoever" who's Toyota, Lexus, Mitsu, Chevy, Dodge, whatever could probably take apart the ricers lawnmo...errr... car. Yeah i think it was about 7 or 8 years ago when some ricer dork tried to cut me off in my dodge ram pickup with the 5.9 v-8 245hp stock. yeah ummm... he didn't quite make it if u know what i mean.|
|this stuff pisses me off. but dont worry. carma. he will know the pain of those people some day.|
|I dont think it matters what you drive, if you drive like a maniac, you shouldnt have a licence, although i do see your point about the gay assed ricermobiles. Its one thing if thoes little shits with the coffie can exausts actually had the power to back them up but most of thoes eggmobiles are like 200 dollar hatchbacks with gay lime green paintjobs, and bodykits that scrape the ground and the same stock dinky 4cyl with as much power as a lawn mower. dont talk the talk if you cant walk the walk.|
|To the editor; After witnessing the tragic and foolish collision that occured you scream in your post that the honda driver was inconsiderate and didn't even stop to help anyone. But did you stop?
No! You did not even stop to see if the victims needed any medical attention, or to be a witness for the police. Your inconsiderate actions lower you to the same level as the honda driver.
(Editor's note: How could I possibly stop? The 401 is a 12 lane highway at that point, the busiest in North America...What am I supposed to do, stop in the middle of traffic, put on my four ways and back up? Think about it for a second...)
|This is better then funny.. Screw ricers.. Bunch of low class idiots http://www.goingfaster.com/spo/you_might_be_a_ricer_if.html|
|I never witnessed an accident caused by one of those idiot drivers, thank GOD. But I am sure surprised that none of the comments mentioned my number one pain, CELL PHONES! I see more people driving wildly with cell phones than anything; these people really suck in my opinion. When confronted they think they are not doing anything wrong. This coupled with the rolling road blocks, SUV's, pick up's and mini-vans makes driving a pain in the ass. Yes, I like to drive spirited and above the speed limit without anyone around, but the ignorant driving 5K lb plus vehicles can do some serious damage to me; thank god I can out maneuver and out break them if need be. Unfortunately It just labels me as one of those that like to drive a lot faster, I don't think so. SUV's, pick up's and mini-vans normally drive faster than me, that is, in a straight line. The soft cushy ride makes think they are in control. Did you ever wonder that almost every accident involves one of those vehicles, probably there are so many of them and they suck as drivers. I have my fun when they tail gate me on an exit with a sharp turn, deer in the headlights look when they get into the corner way to fast. The “ricers” are not bad in my area yet, the roads don’t support them, and potholes eat small low cars here. I do drive a 20 year old concours Red RX-7 that needs more power but I am satisfied with it, I enjoy the country roads without the traffic for now.|
|I agree that it's the drivers that are the problem. One question I have is what do these guys (and gals) do with their cars after they put thousands of dollars into them and drive them to death? Can they possibly get any of that money back? Do others buy them only to put more thousands into a wasted drivetrain and body? I went through the stage of trying to be the first in line on the freeway a few years back and hopped up my car at the time. No wings or stickers though. A few tickets and many close calls later I now just put my money into better performance that saves me money (longer wearing tires, better mileage, etc.). At least I get a little payback out of those mods.|
|I started reading this and I quit halfway through because it was pretty much the same banter back and forth. Cars don't make stupid drivers, stupid people do. I saw a comment how it used to be all about the engine mods and now it's the looks. Well way back when when engine bays were massive, all you needed was some renches, and a good buddy who has an idea and you can do your work, nowadays everything is so compacted and relies on an ECU that you practically need mechanical degree to know how to modify moreso than an intake. Also have you tried restoring an old muscle car these days? The 69 Dart I have in the garage has soaked up about 15 grand or so over the past 5 years and it still needs some tweekin under the hood. I have a daily driver neon in the driveway that I can even take to the shop for an oil change without it costing $500 for some new repair. And yet a body kit can be obtained for about $1000 if you do your shopping. All I say is dont judge too quickly when you see the car, if the kids driving like and idiot then call a spade a spade. But I'd rather see my kid toss his money into a "ricer" car anyday (and being responsible) over him doing drugs, getting arrested or driving wrecklessly and heaven forbid hurt or kill someone.|
|I'm a high school student and I drive a 1990 Honda CRX. I don't drive dangerously and I always use my turn signals. I know my car is'nt the fastest in the world and I don't try to say it is. It has a 13sec 1/4 mile for God's sake. I bought the car because of the price and because I wanted something light and maneuverable. The only mods I have done are the intake and injectors. I fix up my car because parts are readily available and I want to make my car better to my specifications and a lil faster. I love imports in general, but don't get me wrong, i love domestics too. Anyone, does'nt matter what kind of vehicle they drive, can drive like an idiot or be classified as a "ricer". A ricer is'nt someone who drives a Jap, but who acts like they're the shit when they don't even know how to drive.
(Editor's note: No one ever said that driving an import make you a ricer. I own 3 imports yet I am as far from a ricer as you could imagine. Though somehow I doubt that you are running a 13 second 1/4 mile with only an "intake and injectors" especially since upgrading the injectors with only an intake as a supporting mod is just going to make the car run rich and cost you power. The CRX is a cool car. The HX gets decent mileage for a non-hyrbid, and the Si is great on the autocross course. If only it was rear wheel drive...)
|I just wonder if the Shane person can actually spell, let alone drive on the road. The people that drive like fools on the road give people like me a bad name, just because I drive a Japanese car. Anymore it seems like whether or not you drive rediculous you get put into the "ricer" group as soon as someone sees a body kit, black windows, or a thump'n stereo.|
| I own a 1994 Honda Civic CX hatchback with a K20 engine swap, and I guarantee I can beat any Honda hater here. If any of you know, the K20 is the engine on the Car and Drivers Best Car of the Year for 2005, the Acura RSX Type S. My car runs 11.4 quarter miles at the track. I just raced a brand new 2006 Corvette C6 Z06 and beat that. My car just has my swap, and a Comptech supercharger. A 350 hp Japanese car desecrating a 500 hp American shit mobile is quite laughable. So hah. You lose!!! 8=====3
(Editor's note: Anyone who says "my car can beat anyone" has no clue. There is always someone faster. Always. And this is not about who is faster or which car is "better" then another. Never was, never will be. It's about a bunch of sad little immature kids that need to grow up and realise that the road is not their personal race track and that their actions place those around them in danger.)
|I think the whole point is, when it comes to road safety, it starts with YOU ! the driver. I do believe that young males between the ages of 16-24 have a much higher accident ratio. If i'm not mistaken, i'm pretty sure it is illegal to make any serious modifications to your car. I wonder how many of these punk ass kids, tell their insurance companies what they have done to there cars.|
|Don't lump all people who want to get the most out of their import cars into "ricers". That's simply a nice safe way to say that most of the guys driving the cars are Asian-Canadians. It's the same thing as grouping everyone who drives a V8 domestic Muscle-Car into "rednecks".
I myself drive a Honda Civic SiR (which has much more than 80 HP thank you....) and have been modding these little things for over 10 years (in various incarnations). I have never street-raced, I always signal, always let people pass me if they're going faster, don't tailgate, and don't pretend that my car can wipe out a muscle-car. I don't cut people off and generally don't drive like an idiot. I also inform my insurance company whenever I do anything in the way of modification to my car.
I see just as many people driving OldsmoBuicks, Chryslers, Fords, and pretty much anything else out there driving just as stupidly. I see people driving high-priced BMW M3s driving like they were in the Nurburging while yakking on their cell phones. I see cabbies doing u-turns in the middle of the street, trucks driving in the left lane....the list goes on and on.
So don't lump everyone who drives a hopped-up Honda as "ricers". I work for an insurance company and deal with collisions involving EVERY type of car. These people are simply BAD DRIVERS, irrespective of the car they drive.
(Editor's note: Nowhere did I say that all modified imports are rice. I have a highly modded RX-7, and I spend my weekends building these cars as well. There is a HUGE difference between a true performance car and a ricer. But I will say one thing...No performance car is front wheel drive.)
|Hey, first, I agree a stupid ricer with a fart can an a 15 old retard with a white hat with the pad facing rear sucks ass. When they cut people off on the highway because that's all the excitement they've got in life I wish I had a tank and slam the brakes in front of them.
But technologically speaking, japanese and auropean cars are far more advanced in terms of quality and driving performance than any american car in the same class. American sedans build on red neck farm truck frames with solid bar rear suspension are far more dangerous than any ricer. The fat ass SUV and trucks, because of the pollution they produce and the gas they waste to transport only one red neck peasant at a time, should be legally forbidden. The domestic POS is so lame because of the oil leaks, accessoires quality, ugly dashes, stupid farm tractor door closing sound, bold buttons and boat driving feeling. So we got far more idiotic things that occur on the road than the ricer issue.
(Editor's note: Ricers are dangerous. Poor quality "domestics" are not. It's never about import vs. domestic.)
|i need the causes of accident on highways|
|YO ALL THESE PPL ON HEER NEED TO SHUT THE HELL UP FOR REAL LIKE COME ON CUZ U ALL ACT LIKE EVERY 16 YEAR OLD IS A PUNK SO FUCK ALL U 45 YEAR OLD PPL WITH UR MUSTASHES AND SHIT LIKE TRYIN TO BE A PIG OR SOMEHTHIN SO I HOPE U SEE THIS AND IT DON'T GET DELETED YEAH HERE RE SOME DRIVES WHO SHOULD BE OFF THE ORAD BUT NOT EVERYONE SO SCREW OFF
(Editor's note: Huh? Did anyone actually get that? I think it might be English, but I'm not quite sure...)
|yeah, it's a joke, like half the fucking kids out there! i ride a '98 honda f3, so i'm not too into the car scene, but....GOD those kids piss me off!|
|u ppl r so sutpid!!! i have a civic si with a header, wing, tinted windows, and high performance stickers!!!! u ppl r just jeluce bc u can't keep up with me. one time i ravced a corvet z02 and kicked his asss!! andother time i raced a camaro and won. i have a front wings west bodykit, and i'm about to put back and sides on and then ill paint it. if ur so stupid then wtf??? omg just grow up u soopid turds
(Editor's note: I'm assuming that this is a joke since this poster came from a Google search for "pick+up+chicks+in+a+crx")
|i agree that there is more stupid kids with 4 bangers doing stupid stuff than more V8's . but streetracing and road rage has been always present in the streets and highways, the big different is before V8's could barely make 100 miles per hour, now days the 4 bangers can make 200 mph! and offcourse the V8's too ... difference ... the 4 bangers are more accesible and more cheaper to tune that to build a Super performance LT1 or LS1. i have a trans-am spyder 5.7 liters and also a GSX Mitsu eclipse wich i have modified to look more especial (with bodykits BIG WING etc. ) my car FYI is not FW is AWD and I put as much stuff as i want into my trasn or my clip it's my car and if i want the car to have a wing the size of texas that is going to be useless because i only race in small circuits with many turns. i should be able to have the freedom of have an ugly car or a pretty car ,.... its all about the things you like :D .. and most of you lost the point of the subject people not been careful at drving but because it was a honda HB CRX it's RICERS FAULT.... that just a lame excuse to have..the car didn't drive it self it was driven by someone and that someone could it be a stupid reckless driver or just simply someone that wacht to many movies and don't see the difference between real life and a fantasy life. please stop hating people that you don't know might as well teache them how to drive. instead of just trying to bust there asses or just hate them. hate is the choice of a fool! locko|
|Ricers and tuners can be pretty hot, but overdoing it can be like a hot chick with too much make up- butt ugly. It's all about the oldschool-71 Judge convertible, carousel red with the big ol' blower stickin out the hood. I'd take one of those over a tuner any day, indifferent to the speed.|
|Well alot could be said about the pissing match between risers and good ole north american made muscle cars..... What I will say is that as a Police Officer I make it my sole duty in my detachment to find, ticket and prosecute the greatest number of unsafe drivers on all highways but primarily RISERS as they prove to have the least amount of brain cells functioning at one time. Easy targets.|
|ricers are pieces of crap. i wish they'd make those fart can pipes illegal - they piss me off big time. all they do is make a big noise and disturb everyone. next time i see one of these cars, i'll stick a large potato up the fart can. assholes. they take the piss out of properly tuned cars - Subaru WRXs, Mitsubishi Evos - put a ricer up against one of these and it'll get smoked.|
(Editor's note: Clear, concise and to the point. I like it.)
|Once again were arguing about these stupid rice burner cars.The editor is right, most of you missed the point. Their are a bunch of ass fucking morons that drive around recklessly for no reason. And for what, to endanger innocent good will people. Now, I don't want to hear crap from guys who modify there cars( The right way; with actual engine mods.), because what i'm saying doesn't apply to you, I'm talking about straight up cock sucking losers who put "ground effects" and "decals", not to mention the famous St Louis Arch wing on the back of the cars To look faster (The key word being "look"). I'm not for American muscle either though, Most of you seem to have forgot or just dont know about a performance division called AMG. It applies to all mercedes cars, and doesn't try to be cool like civics with decals and body kits. AMG hand builds Mercedes engines right out of the factory, my favorite being the E55 ( The wagon version is faster), The stats dont lie, it beats a Ferrai 360, C6 Corvette, Porche Carrera, Astin Martin DB9, and last time I checked it squared up with a Dodge Viper.........Oh, and by the way theres still enough room for the family dog in the back. Excuse me Mr. Civic racer, how many you can claim that your car is streetable and comfortable on a day to day basis. Maybe all you guys forgot that at the end of the day your car is still an econobox. Quit fucking around like idiots on the road, and drive the way your car was intended.|
|the true people who know how slow ricers are, are the people who used to have one. i had a 98 neon for almost a year..my first car. i just had a fart can, seat covers and tint, just because i had some extra money but i didn't drive like a stupid ass ricer but it sure looked like one. it was just a first car and i was really saving up for the car i have now--98 formula ls1. i always knew what true power was but now i have one and i hate those fucking ricers even more than before. i will run AMERICAN MUSCLE up against any ricer anytime.|
|GSRHB in reference to your comment about the 91 Eagle Talon just need to straighten a few things out, yes its turbo charged, it always has been from the factory seeing as how it started as a TSi. Also 8.83 isnt the record any more he broke it himself at firstname.lastname@example.orgMPH! you can check www.shepracing.com for more info on the car. Also its not a drag car, its a full street car, full interior, factory glass windshields and all. I drive a 96 Eclipse GSX myself though luckly ive never been revved on once and only make a fool of myself around one set of corners when there is no traffic. Other then that ive seen just as many Civics crumpled up in a accident as I have much more expensive Porsches, Audis, and BMWs around here.|
|ricers eat dust on track.|
|its mostly younger kids that try to race you , i drive a honda civic hb ,its ricey looking to some people ,but others not so ricey. its stock si blue ,has 17" rims lowered and people try to race me all the time ,not sure if its the huge front mount innercooler or the bov they hear. i race on the track not the street. car runs 11.8 at 105mph in the 1/4 so for me to try to race on the strret is just dumb and a waste of my gas and tires.
(Editor's note: I feel compelled to mention that this person found this page by searching Google for "honda+civic+in+japanese+decal". )
|lol DETUNED? --At the Honda factory-- Bob: "Ok here it is..the new Civic" Joe: "Wow thats beautiful. Whats it lay down in hp?" Bob: "Right now about 190" Joe: "Now Bob...you know the rules. No civics over 110hp!" Bob: "Yah youre right...lets call the detuning dept to fix it" ^No.|
|Wow you're an idiot. Honda Civic's are actually detuned from what they're supposed to be, for yes economy purposes. That's why any modification you do to a Honda Civic, basically brings it to life, and does alot. Any car can be modified to ride on the track, you just have to do it the right way. Well not any car, but definately a civic. And as for the guy who "whups" civics everyday after school. How about your next afterschool "whupping" of civics, come find me and my civic, and i swear the results will be totally different ;]
(Editor's note: Last time I dyno'ed a basically stock Civic that had an exhaust an intake "upgrade", it made LESS power then stock. The so-called "short ram" intake was sucking in hot air from the exhaust manifold, and the exhaust was so large as to kill all velocity and completely destroy the scavenging effect. And the point remains that modding out an economy car means in no way gives you the right to drive like the public roads are your personal racetrack.)
|ha fucking hondas suck anyway everyone i;ve owned has either blownup or rusted the fuck out so keep it nice say fuck rice:) GOTTA LOVE MY 92 Rx7 stock but still going strong Thats what im talkin about|
|"Ricer meaning how japanese major production in rice, so they eat rice alot." - If brainstems (and not the actual brain) didn't control heart rate and breathing you'd be in a WORLD of trouble. " i hate ricers and all the stupid POS hondas i whup every day out on the road." - Great, so basically you are driving even more recklessly than they are since you "whup" them. Kudos for you, I hope you're the only one killed when (not if...WHEN) you wreck. "97 talon tsi, eating up v8's since ' 97" - Then you woke up, right? I drive a Subaru Impreza myself, and I'm realizing the line between "tuner" and "ricer" is becoming more skewed every day. Yes, I've modified mine a bit to make it faster (intake, crank pulley, etc). Yes, I have a hoodscoop but no top-mount intercooler. The car came that way from the factory and just to make myself feel better, the hood scoop now functions as a means to push more outside air into the intake. Does this mean I'm rice? No. And I know that a bunch of people who are reading this thought "OMFG RICE". For those who dont know..."ricing" a car means that you take a perfectly good car (foregin OR domestic) and add a hajillion things to the outside of it to make it >>look<< fast...but leave the engine stock/broken. Giant wings on FWD cars, Body kits that work to DESTROY aerodynamics, neon lighting inside and out, machines that imitate blow-off valve noises, decals for parts you dont have and probably can't afford (aka "roll calls"), roof scoops, HID lights, 6" fartcans on 1" exhaust systems....these are what define a "ricer". That being said, there is nothing wrong with enhancing the outside of a vehicle to match the enhancements of the actual motor. So please, know your enemy.|
|Here in Costa Rica is the same thing. If you want a real sports car, please buy a car designed from factory for that, don't use a econo car to make it like a sports car. Its non sense because it will be so expensive to make the mods that it will be better to buy a real sports car and make some adjustments on it. I have a RX7 87, I love it , its a real sports car, born to be a sports car. I have seen a lot of ricers (we call them here "Rapidos y babosos" from the movie "rapidos y furiosos", in english "Fast and moronic" from the movie "fast and the furius") with moronic wings in nissan sentras, even vannettes with wings and stickers. Lights all over the car, its like cristhmas for them all the year. We call then also cristhmas trees. I don't like to go slow, but I'am carefull during driving, I slow when raining and what ever condition that justifieds it. I have seen a SUV (Toyota land cruiser) at almost 100MPH at full raining, this is pretty scary.|
|fuck ricers. i hate ricers and all the stupid POS hondas i whup every day out on the road.|
|Ok, first of all. Just stop with the word "ricer." It's ridiculous. Yes Honda makes economy cars, does that make all of its cars "econoboxes" as you call them. NO. Every company has shaped their cars towards Economy. Yes, even the new corvette. Basically because the company just makes it for the average joe. Now if you want to race it, it's up to you to tune it that way. I bet you kids also didn't know Honda NSX-R has less gas mileage than the new vette? So does that make a corvette an econo-box? Yes there's a lot of teenage kids that grab cars that are made towards economy, and drive like bats out of hell. Even cars that are made for economy, can be tuned towards performance. So to say otherwise, is ignorant. Also just because you have a 4cyl, doesn't make it a econobox. That's why you see 240, and 280hp 4cyls running around. It's just how jap imports are made, they make power with less displacement. Honda Civic si, and type R. Both have 4cyl's, but are made for the track. In my opinion Honda makes very good cars. They make good Economy cars, and they make good track cars. I've recently seen a Honda NSX-R racing on the same track as a Lambo murcielago which has 580hp. The NSX-R only has 280hp. Yet on the track the Honda NSX-R dominated, until aronud the last lap when the NSX-R overheated. Also i've seen tons of races on the streets, civic's that have been tuned so well, they destroy other tuned up v8's aka camaros, cobra's, trans ams. I myself street race in a civic. But i don't go around racing everything that i see, or on busy roads. I also don't go around calling people "ricer" to me that's a hateful word, because it's obvious were it came from. It seems racist to me when you put 2 and 2 together. Ricer meaning how japanese major production in rice, so they eat rice alot. So a jap car gets called a ricer. As for Z32 love, who singles out all people who drive Honda's. I've seen American cars with big wings on them, doing the same thing you said those "POS HONDA" were doing. Hell i remember some kid in a cobra drove next to me reving up his engine, then blasting off. He had some vinyl on the side. If you want to race a real Honda, you can come down here, and i'm sure they're plenty of them that'll smoke you, with their little 4cyl's :]

|If I had a nickel for everytime I had a near accident from a kid that can't drive I would have a _ _ _ _ of nickels. But allot of these Honda's that you see aren't what I consider a "ricer" car just someone that is reckless!!! I've seen people of all ages and sex driving SUV's , 4X4 and everything else under the sun and driving like fools. A type of car doesn't mean your a "ricer" or anything at all... A person can be dangerous behind anything. I drag race at least 6-10 times a year in actual competitions and I believe to steer people away from this type of behaviour there needs to be tracks setup for the public to use. Ever heard of "Take it to the Track" not the Street... I'm no prince on the road , I've been caught doing 160 and 190 in 90km zones more then once and it taught me a good lesson!!! But there will always be kids , adults , men and women pulling stunts on the highways and the only way to prevent it is to just not let them drive at all. Thats easier said then done|
|"Because I have the loud rumbly no-exhaust V8 car,I also sometimes wish I could just drop everything right there and become a cop. I would need a few boxes of tickets to fill out, because Im not happy and have some serious motivation to get rid of these ricers"
thats funny cause your gonna have to give yourself a ticket for no exaust on your "loud v8"
97 talon tsi, eating up v8's since ' 97

|y dont u all just watch were im goin|
|Regarding to "CLARUSWORKS", did you not read what I just posted? Ur the type of guy who classifies people into the "RICER" group just cause they have a japanese car. I have much more horsepower than decibels and I have a bodykit thats painted. It's not my mothers accord and I dont drive like a retard. It's funny how people like you pick on so called "RICERS" if you even know what that means. A "RICER" refers to someones attitude, not the kind of car they drive, so to speak. I wonder what kind of car YOU drive. perhaps some kind of muscle car or something thats not considered a sports car. or maybe you'll just lie about owning a fast car cause ur jealous of these "ricers" (which I will admit I strongly doubt anyone would be jealous of a "ricer" car) but anyway, don't group people because of the car they drive. There are very fast cars out there that you would probably classify as a "ricer" , it just so happens that fastest street legal car happens to be a 91 eagle talon tsi (a DSM "ricer" car) which runs 8.83 seconds in the quarter mile at about 135 MPH or so, no fart cans, no decals or vinyls, no turbo's or s/c's just all motor (a 2 point sumthing 4AGE motor) just my opinion, im sure someone will be offended and write something stupid anyway.|
|Ricers have no place on the highway. 4-cylinder econoboxes were never meant to 'look cool,' and having more decibels than horsepower is definitely not cool. Get REAL cars you lamers. Kids used to want power first, then looks. Now it's all looks and no power. Just because your mom's old Honda Accord has a fartcan muffler and a bunch of lame (and not yet painted) ground effects on it doesn't mean it's a race car.|
|I would just like to set a few things clear. Yes there are alot of bad drivers on the road whether they are 16 or 45 or 80. It doesn't matter what kind of car you drive. It's just too bad that Japanese cars with any kind of mods get grouped into the whole "Ricer" group. I have a civic hatch with motor swap, suspension, exhaust( a full exhaust, not a coffee can like most would expect, and it is not loud) anyway. I am not a perfect angel on the road, and I'm sure atleast half of us here arent either. My point is, whatever car you drive, if you drive like shit, your a shitty driver. commen sense right? just so happens that most "ricers" are still imature from just getting their liscense and yes, most have useless mods. I run about 13.2 in the 1/4 mile and I have a lot more than just 80 HP. just have a open mind. anycar can be fast and any driver can be a bad driver. let's not steroetype "ricers" all the I admit it's hard not to do so. anyone agree?
(Editor's note: I'm not grouping all Japanese cars with mods in the "ricer" group. I own an '86 RX-7 where literally nothing is unmodded. But then, I don't drive like a 15 year old high on crack. Nor do I own a 80 HP Honda Civic with a 5 foot high wing, 8" exhaust tip, and neon lights mounted on my undercarriage. See the difference?)
|the term "Rice" doesn't refer to the car you drive, it refers to the attitude you present. I know plenty of ricers that would have otherwise nice cars if they didn't slap japanese stickers and fart cans on, then drive like a moron. I know import drivers who have nice cars and drive sensibly too. Next time you go out driving in your idea of a "hot car", ask yourself, am I Rice?|
|i love imports.. and all my mates with imports have fucking hot cars.. thay dont sit a lighs n try to drag ppl.. you can have a nice car and still be a resonsible driver.. i think that you can tell who the dick head drivers are.. their the ones who have shit on their car to get the attention.. my mates cars are done up to look nice.. not to try and pick up chicks n shit.. n i think its bullshit about cops doing you for your tint n shit.. y dont they concerntrate on more impotant things like ppl speeding and drifting.. not how dark your windows are.. it seems a bit pathetic..
(Editor's note: Another person who doesn't understand what a "ricer" actually is.)
|Ricers suck. some are worse the others but for the most part 100% of them are just punk idiot kids who are lost in life.. You guys should check out http://www.fightrice.com for some more people bashing ricer idiots|
|I agree with everybody, i am so sick of these stupid little kids trying to be like The Fast and The Furious with their POS Hondas. I think that was probably the worst thing to happen to the tuner culture, the movies that is. I own a 91 300ZXTT and it is a chore going out at night because every single ricer with a coffee can exhaust wants to race!!! They are always following me and revving the hell out of their 1.whatever the fuck i dont care liter engines. They then blow by me like theyve actually done something, its soooo tempting to actually race and blow the fuck outta one of them one of these days. But all theyll do is drive by, tell me that theyll smoke me once they get their dual exhaust, then speed off. They shouldnt be allowed to drive.|
|I still remember when a ricecar-driver was revving his motor hard, and trying to burn out to show off. Yes, trying to burn out, without succeeding. Because I have the loud rumbly no-exhaust V8 car, I guess he felt the need to show off. What happened next was just stupid. In the middle of the school parking lot, in a thick heavy fog. The pavement was still covered in gravel and sand from the wintertime. The ricecar driver revved his motor hard and rallied his car down the parkinglot isle, tried to make a 90 degree turn to exit the parking lot and slammed broadside into a parked car, sliding sideways because of the gravel. The parked car with an older woman inside was waiting to pick up a student. Priceless memories like this make my day. I also sometimes wish I could just drop everything right there and become a cop. I would need a few boxes of tickets to fill out, because Im not happy and have some serious motivation to get rid of these ricers.|
|Suv's? Ricers? God! I can't take them anymore.....I thank God for the officer that gave me a ticket for not signaling a lane change here in central florida. That one ticket tought me a lesson on proper driving....I keep my passion for speed on the track...not on the road...|
|A $150 ticket for illegal window tint and a $140 ticket for 100mph in a 70mph zone straightened me up real quick. Took the tacky window tint off and have been driving sensibly ever since. Haven't had a ticket in over two years.|
|Yeah man I see that sort of crap all the time as well. Friday and Saturday nights are almost too dangerous to venture out on because of all the moron kids driving like idiots. Sometimes I just want to put everything I've worked for aside and become a cop just to bust these punks. I know a guy that had a severe wreck from street racing and was in therapy for 6 months just to be able to walk again. He broke about 20 bones and was damn lucky to be alive. Know what he did? Less than a month from getting out of the hospital, he went out and raced again. He had a wreck again and then died. If more of these morons would just kill themselves (and hopefully not kill others, unless they are other idiot boy racers) we wouldnt' have this problem. SUV drivers also piss me off too though. A lot of them don't seem to know how to drive. A lot of times it looks as if they can't see over the dash. There should be special driving tests just for SUV owners because these are vehicles that wreak havoc on smaller passenger vehicles. SUV owners are always like "I feel safer in my SUV", yeah but the assholes kill the people they hit.|
