My crimson frame is ever so slick,

with a stimulant swish I might give you a kick.

My number 13 shell might give you a chill,

don't over use me because I'm a real heart-kill.

WHAT AM I?

BONUS RHYME:

Some might say that I'm quite extreme, they're probably right my species is mean.

HINT:

Maybe i'll give you a chill because I'm often chilled...

  • $\begingroup$ Hi I'm new to the puzzles exchange, do I only give the answer when someone has answered correctly? $\endgroup$ Oct 19, 2016 at 14:29
  • $\begingroup$ You will most likely get answers soon, you will then be able to confirm or infirm the propositions. If you don't get answers for a day, you can then post hints toward finding the answer (it usually can go up to 5 hints). If even then no one find the answer, then you can provide it yourself. $\endgroup$

Are you

Red Bull? The one that gives you wings?

My crimson frame is ever so slick,

Red can.

with a stimulant swish I might give you a kick.

Gives you energy. Caffeine is a stimulant and a bull might kick you.

My number 13 shell might give you a chill,

So, this was tricky, but EngineerToast got it rolling with aluminum can which is in the Boron (13) group and the aluminum itself is cold.

don't over use me because I'm a real heart-kill.

Too much Red Bull and you'll probably die... lol. Too much caffeine could damage your heart.

Some might say that I'm quite extreme, they're probably right my species is mean.

Red Bull sponsors a lot of extreme sports, a bull is considered aggressive.

I didn't get the title, but it's clever.

Per Cutter, MCC is another way of writing MC^2 as in E = MC^2 or energy and Red Bull is an energy drink.

Are you...

Alienware 13

My crimson frame is ever so slick,

The gaming machine in red is definitely slick

With a stimulant swish I might give you a kick.

The hustling sound when it boots up gives gamers a kick

My number 13 shell might give you a chill,

This might be referring to the cover with a chilling 'Alien' themed shell

Don't over use me because I'm a real heart-kill.

No extreme gaming. Not good for your heart in long term.

And MCC is...

Mission Control Center
