The best way to enjoy a car is to drive a car. Only the driver can truly feel this sensation, the joy of applying pressure to your right foot and getting a direct reaction as you rev it through the RPM’s knowing you are solely responsible for the power and sound it produces only to shift milliseconds before redline. Only the driver can directly feel the feed back from the steering wheel as he goes through a turn, and only the driver can truly feel as one with machine. After all the driver truly is the secret ingredient in the workings of a car, because if it wasn’t for the driver you would basically just have big electric generator. The driver is the key element to making the car an amazing car or just a basic car, for he has the ability to apex the turn correctly, apply the correct amount of throttle, shift at just the right moment in the power band, and apply the correct amount of brake. knowing when and how to exploit these elements of a car separate the Ricers from the true enthusiasts. I believe bridging the gap between ricer and enthusiast comes from within ones self, the feeling they get when they drive their car, and the passion behind driving their car. for instance if you are only concerned about how many likes you get, magazines you get featured in, and the increasing the value of your car based solely on its popularity. then this would make you a ricer. Someone that is a truly passionate enthusiast would be more interested in the performance of his car, improving driving techniques, driving the car on canyon roads or track with out fear wrecking the car because after all the passion is in the build, and the feelings you get when you stiffen your chassis, add more braking power, or increase power. going out and driving the car after adding some new modification can be a very rewarding thing.
