My imagination is running wild with speculatory ideas involving spray glue all over the exterior of a car and a few people with sacks of rice...you can imagine the hideous outcome. So please, tell me!
rice doesnt refer to rice itself, but to the fact that most of the cars that are "riced" are japanese. hence, riced out american cars (wannabes) are a joke because they arent even japanese. like those dumasses in mustangs w/ big wings on the back w/ altezza taillights...what idiots...
riced out cars basically are determined by the modefied style to the body of the car. alot of riced cars i run into have only body mods and no engine mods, which makes the car only for looks, and basically useless when it comes to racing. i run into those occasionally and destroy them in street racing. its a joke, and really not even funny.
the mods include: clear tail lights, big wing, custom paint job, HID lights, fog lights, general extreme style body kit, black lights, neon lighting under the car, lowering, etc.
personally, i only make engine based and driving performance mods (when i can afford them), as i race semi-pro, so looks dont mean much when u drive to win. of course, my car looks damn good anyway...so theres not much need to mess w/ it.
