Default The New and Improved Are You a Ricer Quiz

HERE IT IS. A list of warning signs that YOU might be a ricer.

*DuPont gave up trying to figure out the shade you were asking for.
*Your mod list includes stereo equipment, shifter handle, MOMO steering wheel, PIAA driving lights, exhaust tip, but no REAL engine parts.
*A chameleon lizard undergoes fewer shade changes than your custom paint scheme.
*Your rims and tires are so large, that you have to install the tire / wheel from underneath the car because it simply won't fit in the wheel well going in from the side.
*The dealer laughs when you bring your car back in for service under warranty, and you've only had it 6 months...
*Your tires / rims stick out from the lip of your car by more than 1".
*Your paint job is from the WRONG end of the color spectrum.
*You installed spacers on your STOCK wheels and tires to get them to stick out past the fender.
*You see cars like yours in a Shriner'* Parade for Children and clowns are driving them.
*You bring an empty Maxwell House coffee can with you to compare size when you shop for an aftermarket exhaust system.
*You push your car through the staging lanes. That way, maybe you can break into the 16s by keeping the motor cool between runs.
*You add a super tall rear wing, and a hundred pounds of aftermarket ground effects, neon and stereo yet you gut the interior and yank out the rear seat for weight savings.
*Your rear wing AND your rear window have a third mount brake light...
*The back lighting in the gauges in your A-pillar gauge pod work long before the actual gauges are hooked up.
*You cut 4 coil springs and scrape the chassis on the ground. Sparks are cool when you corner at normal traffic speeds!

*EVERY car in your class has a turbo pushing double digits worth of boost.

*You want the 'wastegate' sound, but don't want to install a turbocharger system.
*You think Nitrous Oxide on your Hyundai Sonata puts you in the same performance league as the *Chevy Corvette.
*The automatic version of your car runs 2 seconds slower in the 1/4mile.
*If the 1970 Plymouth Daytona Superbird has a smaller spoiler than your car does.

*If you think that horsepower is far more important than torque
*If you have ever claimed that switching to a cone filter has given you more than 5 HP.
*If you have ever considered installing more than one set of fog / driving lights.
*If you claim that the aftermarket cold air intake system you just installed doubled your horsepower or took 2 or more seconds off of your E/T.

*You lean your seat so far back when you are driving, that everytime you hit a bump, its your back and not your butt that hurts.
*You have hydraulics and sixteen switches on a car you claim runs low 10s on the street and corners better than a Porsche.
