And alot more fun than sitting in the sun just watching them go down the strip. But everybody thinks a little different. Time isnt the only issue . It'* all about how you present yourself to get the most bucks on a race and then getting there first,
I have to say that was very well put.

Yes the cars ran different times, but all the car length and bottle stuff was gay. Your show wasnt about the cars, but about who could cheat each other the best at the line. That just how I feel.
That is the stuff that makes the race even that much better. Convince the opponent of one thing..and show them another. Even the cartoon network shows you that.

Thanks Blk2000SSEi and Bill you said it in one sentence. Alot of my build is geared for that culture. What could be more intimitading than a car with no model badges other than GXP (hardly anyone knows what it is) pulling up on you with windows you cant see in at nite, front end dropping to the ground, rear jacking in air,(all while cars in motion) with the throaty Northstar growl and the laser lit purge throwing liquid nitrous. Most fart pipe owners just back off their engine and pretend to be preoccupied .......drifting back out of your view.......and I liiiiiiiike it! Not that I would actually race them on a public street

That kid that lost was'nt just out motored, he was outclassed and deserved the spanking he got. As mentioned he had to chance to back out but his pride allowed him to be ignorant. Then whined enough to get his car back. I was very entertained by the show and it was actually one of few that didnt looked all staged.....you could see the FEAR in his eyes. And the WOT crew running out on the track to get car and comments>>>Classic.

I hope you realize there is no cheating going on. This is the art of illusion. If you think this is cheating and stealing... you still have much to learn.

That kid had the same chance an LN3 would have against a highly modded series 2 L67. To think he was cheated before he started to cry about his car is kidding yourself.

Nothing in life is fair... that'* not simply a saying...it'* reality.

the thing is, its not really a drag race WHEN YOU LIE AND CHEAT SO YOU CAN STEAL A CAR AWAY FROM SOMEONE ELSE. The guy did have a chance to back down. I am not just talking about this episode. The whole show is about cheating.

^X2

Just to clarify it, everybody that'* on the show has the chance to back out. Also not saying I'm a bad guy or any of the WOT crowd is a bad guy but, who honestly remembers the good guys. Not that often for me anyways. The bad guys or the guys that do it the best (which may be the bad guys to some people) are always the ones that get remembered the most.

Nice timing Mr.Bean, didnt mean to offend, just explain what it'* about.

Blk2000SSEi I will get yer DVD in the mail Monday or Tuesday when I go in to get my mail. Believe it or not... there are no services in E. Jesus, Its a tiny hamlet in the hills of NE Pennsylvania near enough to the big cities for the modern life but far enough to avoid all the BS of town living.

Craig Ii really enjoyed the show and seeing the car and the club "at work" and cant wait for the next episode.

That was a pretty good episode. I'm a Chevy fan, and my brother'* a Ford fan. I told him the Mustang beat the Honda, he got all over me about it, until I told him it was a SBC :P .
