Arrow Ricers and Racers

I can't count the number of posts ragging on ricers. C'mon, some people look at a Focus and assume, no matter what is done to it, that the driver is a ricer.

Whatever you drive is whatever you drive. If someone wants looks, let 'em have looks. If someone wants performance, more power to 'em.

For instance, my car has no performance mods yet. Currently installed is a sound system and white faced gauges. I have a sound system because I had it in my last vehicle, and just switched it all in. I have gauges because they were cheap, and easy to do.

For me, I mod my car because I enjoy reshaping my car, no matter how little, to portray me. I bought a Focus because it was cheaper than anything else new. I've grown to like the car, partially because of how it drives, and partially because of the mods that I can do with it. It's inexpensive to work on. It's easy to work on.

So quit raggin' on the ricers. Maybe, like me, they don't make enough to be a racer.

Peace

not being a "racer" doesnt make you a ricer. infact, sometimes racers are ricers. but that's just my $.02

Only people that get mad for saying ricer or calling something rice are ricers themselves.

Same here! Interior and exterior mods are first on my list!

I understand where whc_emt is coming from though. I want my car to look like a car off of fast and furious, but does it make me ME a ricer? Mods come slowly due to income here and lots of people fix their cars up to their likings, regardless if it is fast or not so why???? I guess its cool as long as you don't take it to the head huh?

IMO you are only a Ricer if you have a shotck or only no or minor mods (intake, muffler ext.) that only add like 10HP added up, over all and about 3k in system and apperance and think that you can beat anything on the road
