Default Rant about the Speed Channel.

In the last two days, I've seen numerous commercials for that stupid useless 'pill' you put in your gas tank (proven BS by the EPA) and Zmax (which the FTC has been after for BS claims for YEARS).

I'm getting fed up.

Carol Shellby puts his name on zmax so its gotta be good

Up here in the cold most of speeds comercials (not all) are blocked with satalite ads so theres only one or two zmax ads and none of the pills ads.

i have never heard of these pills, i assume from your rants that it just a gimmick, like fuel injection cleaners and gas saver in bottles.

.......and that Turbulator ad is driving me to rage also.

These ads pay for the shows we watch but they insult us with crap

We should all kick in a Grand and advertise our Club.
