Here is a checklist that will reveal that you might be a ricer!
There is a very fine line between class and style when it comes to modifying your car, both in terms of performance and styling and being an outright ricer (Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements).
Here are 8 embarrassing sighs that you might be one:
- Super loud exhaust
You never want to be that guy rolling up to a car meet with such a loud exhaust that people expect to see a straight-piped hypercar making an entrance. Instead, they find out that it's an old rusted Honda Civic...Don't make your car louder than it needs to be.
- Race Driver
You get those "ricer" guys who constantly think they're on a race track, bouncing off the limiter wherever they drive.
- Colour Matched
You won't believe this one, but some ricers even colour code their outfit with their car colour...pure cringe!
Remember the song by Ludacris that was the theme song of 2 Fast 2 Furious? Take a listen to those lyrics and you'll understand the anthem for ricers, these guys need as many air vents as possible on their rides.
- Weight Reduction, Bro!
Don't get us wrong, racecars benefit hugely from reducing weight, but when you do it purely to get that "racecar" look, you might be on the wrong path of righteousness.
- Spoiler Alert
Spoilers are a rather controversial topic. A good old wing at the back of your ride can be beneficial and look good, but there is a fine line between assisting in the visual aesthetics and completely overdoing it.
- Sticker Bombing
We have spoken about this many times in the past, and there is nothing wrong with representing the brands you love. But, come on, when you can hardly tell what the base colour of your car is anymore, enjoy that bowl of rice!
- Attention Whores
Always keep in mind what the purpose of your car is. It's to make you happy and express your taste in cars. The problem comes in when you make your car as flashy as possible to try to impress as many people as you can, regardless of the mods themselves. You're actually not impressing anyone, you're just making your self look like a complete tool...
