Would This Beat A Ricer?

Tue Jun 15, 2004 10:44 am

So I am at the local Home Depot buying a few more pieces of siding for my garage residing project and when I come out to load up the van I find this parked next to my van



All it needs is a big wing, 22' tires, a fart-pipe and some neon and the ricers would love it.

Bonus points for anyone who can tell what make of pickup it is..

I guess you could never lose this thing in the lot or just imagine taking it for a oil change.. "what color is your truck".. "why it is ...."

It's a Mazda. And IhadAPheo, in the midst of all the sarcasm you forgot the greatest source of power for a ricer, the stickers.

Actually that is most definately an Isuzu pickup, circa 1990-95 or thereabouts. Gotta admit that it is cool looking. Old cars are fun b/c you can pretty much do anything with it.

we have a winner (almost) it is a 1989 Izuzu, according to the registration sticker,

I just love how the orange looks like it was color matched to the home depot colors.

And it does ahave a sticker of sorts..

A "ricer" is a foreign built car...specifically, it's one of those little honda civics or acuras or whatever (they finally figgured out how to reproduce) the pollute the street. They typically have a ton of stickers, as LY744 said. Usually about 2" from the ground, tons of neon lights, and are sometimes driven by punk-ass teens who think they've got the baddest ass ride. Also, an exhaust pipe that you could probably stick your head in, it's a damn coffee can. Basically, it's all show, no go.....the little 4 cylinder dudes with NOS think they can take sheer horsepower....here's a diagram to explain more.



I think Delta767300ER (another Camaro man) and myself can prove that ricers, well, SUCK!!!!!

I think Ricer is used more to describe the "pimped out" little asian junkers. Granted, most don't pimp their hondas, but those who do, get the ricer designation. A Chevrolet, Ford, etc, for example, would be a classic American car...

Not quite, JGPH. While the make may be what many people drive, it's the modifications that make a ricer. The low-clearance, the neons, the useless spoiler. Merely having an Asian car doesn't make one's car a ricer, it needs to be have enough flashing lights to induce epileptic seizure or acid flashbacks. My Hyundai Sonata, for instance, is not a ricer. The cars in "The Fast and the Furious," however...

This weekend I saw a perfectly good (and seemingly brand new) 350Z totally riced out...complete with front and back wings (quite an achievement). There was not a single panel on the car that had not been modified in some hideous way--including a huge egg crate grill painted to match the purple body...

I was gonna buzz them and fly past...but wouldn't you know...the freaky little thing was DAMN fast.

Oh well..not a huge fan of 350's anyway...but no car deserved that!

And to think my ego got bruised too.......f*ckers!

ScottysAir, HUH????? Can you clarify your post?

DeltaGuy, Yep both of us can prove that ricers suck! The thing I hate the most is their shitty fartpipe exhaust. They absolutely sound like crap!!!!! They sound like weedeaters. Lets pay $10,000 for a Honda Prelude, then put $5,000 into it and still not be as fast as a Camaro/Trans Am or Mustang.

A ricer is ANY car, foreign or domestic, which gives a false impression, in other words, all show no go.

I've even seen a riced out Hummer H1, it had stickers, stupid looking rims, and a WING on the top, just unbelievably stupid.

Ricers are most commonly teens with cheap little 4 banger cars, like Civics, Cavaliers, etc, which throw on a bunch of crap to their cars, like wings, clear lights, rims, fart pipe, etc, and think they're the fastest and coolest things on the road.

Just the other day I was riding in a friend's/co-worker's Dodge Durango with a lovely 5.2 V8 (Dodge's famous 318), and we pulled up next to a Corolla I believe, which had a huge wing, it was lowered, and it had about 4 NOS stickers on it. We sat there and kind of chuckled at the stupid little car. The light went green, and this little teenage ricer floors his tiny 4 cylinder, only to stop about 700ft ahead at another red light. WOW, race to the next red light! Moron. Anyway after the next red light went green, my friend gives the 318 some gas and we jump ahead of the ricer with no problem, we could hear him trying to catch up, so my friend gave it more gas and he just fell back behind more, not really even a race for us.+

Ah, good times at lunch break, reminds me of my teenage years when I always killed ricers with my old Blazer.  Smile

While I agree with you guys about "ricers," who are (as have been described) teens driving mainly second-hand Civics and putting a muffler and cheap ass 18" wheels, etc...

There is another term that the mainstream society does not understand because one, they choose not to and think that just because someone drives a Honda, and its modified, then they are a ricer...and two, because of display of ignorance in not exploring and educating yourselves. The term I am implying is J.D.M. (Japanese Domestic Market) which indeed it's the way that things are done in Japan. JDM is not well known, specially to all these idiots, because it is extremely expensive to get your car to be "JDM." I have a 2000 Accord purchased in the USA, but the only thing that can be labeled as an "American Accord" would be the chassis itself. The engine, interior, wheels, etc...is Japanese...and no, I don't have any stickers or christmas lights, (that being the other thing that differentiates a tastefully done, JDM ride). Anyways, I figured this would be an appropriate post to bring out this subject and maybe let you guys know that just because someone drives a Honda and it's modified, that they aren't necessarily a ricer...and oh yes, I will take my car against any Mustang.

Yes we all know that though. We're not making fun of foreign cars which are modified for performance, that's perfectly fine because it isn't rice, it's actually modified for a good purpose.

Most everyone anti-rice is not anti-import.

Absolutely right NWA742 (gawd, never thought I'd say THAT). I'm anti-rice, to the point where I'm considering taking a baseball bat with me when I'm out so as to derice perfectly good cars, but I proudly drive my Sonata  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I'll take my 3.2TL-S against any 'stang or GM muscle-car of the '90s era.

Stocked out at 260, adding a Jackson-Racing supercharger, Enkeis and a quiet, full-flow muffler, I'm at about 320.

I always see mullet-bound camaro drivers trying to push their 350s past me, and always get pissed when I stop to let them catch up...at which point they usually toss their cig-butts at me.

Oh well...guess those muscle-car drivers have frail egos.

Uh huh, now take your modified 4 banger and place it against a modified AMC 360, with say a Howell fuel system, Heddman wide headers, magnaflow exhaust, eidelbrock supercharger, 727 tranny, jacobs streetrod electronic ignition. Then see what the outcome is. As nice as those high reving, small engines are, they can never out perform a equally modified bigblock engine, they just don't have the torque and HP.

or the record, the 3.2TL is not a 4-banger. (Think about it, a 4-cyl with that displacement...  Insane)

Moving forward, include my Nitto NT555 Zs (tires) the OEM spoiler (huge wings are a joke) and Comptech headers.

I'm pushing 330 and 338(torque) and a curb weight of 3440lbs...ill take your big block.

More to the point...not all rice-rockets are loud, un-muffled nox-boxes that have no real speed potential.

The point is if you modify a engine with the displacement of a 3.8l (thats about a 289cui) and modify it as much as an engine with 360cui (thats about 5.9l) of displacement, doing the same type of mods, Like improved fuel sys, improved airflow (or charged airflow), improved ignition, suspension, tranny etc. and if the vehicles weigh about the same. You will never get the smaller displacment engine to put out the same horsepower or torque of the larger displacement engine. period.

You just can't make up for displacement in the horsepower formula.

Mathmatically you can do it, but put it into practice and there is a difference.

The other day, I saw what appeared to be a fourbanger Nissan or Honda, forget which, not only with fart packs, but also with something that sounded like breaking glass everytime he shifted gears. Are there new shift kits or transfer case mods for these morons now?

Here goes another person stereotyping Camaro drivers. I'm usually not the person to get upset or show any emotion but I am getting sick and Fucking tired of this.

Mlsrar, Your ride seems pretty quick and I'm glad to see someone actually modify a Japaneese car to make it quick. I dont think you would be able to beat my 98 Z28 LS1 though. Just for the record, I do not wear a mullet and I have never touched a cig (and never will).

Do you have any pics of your ride?

SSTJumbo - What you are hearing is the blow off valve from a turbo system. No, that's not rice. Turbo = power. It's not a shift kit. And he probably has full 3" exhaust which is why it's loud. Ricers would just put a 3" muffler to make the noise but not spend the money to do the whole exhaust cat-back. That Nissan or Honda you saw is owned by someone who cares about power and not looks.

Characteristics of a ricer: painted hubcaps, stickers, unmatching paint around the car, fart can/muffler(not full exhaust), big wing, excessive neons, flashing things...

I have a 4-cyl Nissan 240sx. It's a nice car it beats most other Asian 4-cyl cars stock. I dont go around thinking I'm the shit. I'm planning some stuff for it first of which is an engine swap either from a skyline or a JDM 180sx. After that I can put a new turbo and piping and go up to 300hp. There will always be a car faster out there so there's no point in going around thinking I'm the shit. But I like it when I press the gas pedal and it pulls me back in my seat. I dont have rims or hubcaps and I dont care. All I care about is to have a fast car.

It's different when people mod their cars for looks and when they do it for power.
