A ricer is someone that not only owns a vehicle imported from Asia, but a person that knows very little if anything at all about automobiles and speaks or acts as if they are hardcore racers (usually drag racers). Typically ricers will put stickers all over their cars to imitate professional racecars that have sponsor stickers. A ricer will often modify their car with simple and easy to install parts that may or may not be beneficial, and claim outrageous performance gains without fully understanding how or why that part affects their car. An example of this could be someone installing a cheap 3" intake pipe with an open element filter to replace the stock intake piping and air box, not knowing that a 1.6L engine that only produces 125hp can not create the velocity needed to produce good torque or horse power with such a large pipe, also neglecting to understand that the filter is pulling hot air from the engine compartment. Another example of ricer behavior is joining discussions with people that have experience and knowledge on certain topics and arguing about that topic without even understanding what they are arguing about. Ricers do not understand how silly other people think their actions are and typically do not learn anything about racing, eventually growing out of the fast car phase in their lives and move to other hobbies.
