I saw part of it. I think it will be a good show lots of big $$$$$ cars i did not see any sleepers the farm truck made too much noise to be a true sleeper.Most of those cars were 8 sec cars I would guess.

it looked like they trailered to the street races, so are they just race cars that race on the street, or ?? cars that they trailer to a street race and just call them street cars, and fasted in the states, ?? hum I have seen some very fast street cars out east. that they truly do drive on the streets,

I saw the whole show, but i wasn't too impressed, because of the danger involved. Most of the cars had no safty equipment at all IE: roll cages. I saw some trailered cars, but in reality i don't think they are 8 sec. cars at a track, and like Bigray said put a real race car up against them and they would be skunked in most cases.
But it's just a TV show and it will probably go over pretty big due to the like of knowledge of most of the viewing public.

My question is everything they are doing is REALLY illegal and yet they are filming it, using real names and showing businesses with ties to all the illegal actions. Could this not be used against them legally by law enforcement :?: :shock:

It's kind of ironic to see this sort of reality based program showing street racing, yet having the news media screaming about illegal street racing. Something is very wrong about having this type of program on TV. I suppose showing gang members selling dope and killing other people isn't too far off for the mentally challenged people that present this type of programming and the equally challenged viewers.
