    the problem with street outlaws
    I posted this on facebook a couple years ago and thought maybe some of you on here
    might get a laugh or two out of it.

    Please forgive the jumpy video as my wife is not a pro at it.
    Thanks for watching

    Nice power shifting, though. You're brave!

    I love it, except I didn’t see a large NOS purge out of a firehose mounted in your cowl and there is no exhaust coming out of your front bumper or fenders....

    ha you are right
    would also be great if I did NOT redlight in the video but you cant have everything
    This movie was made for less than 7 million dollars

    I can’t believe the quality on such an obscenely low budget! True art!

    On Street Outlaws it's like they are racing half mile....when it is only 1/8. Amazing how they do that....

    You forgot the commercial break right before the finish line and then a fight with the guy you beat three weeks ago. Also, much posturing, chest poking, and really loud bad cliches about dogs, porches and tears.

    Yes true and it drives me crazy when a car is sliding off the road and they choose to show a view of the driver, then the inside view of a fender then the drivers arms, then the crowd .... jesz just show the car!! We never see the whole car wreck

    Right. Alot of other stuff.
    The stupid directors think cars must be too boring to watch go all the way down the track for 4 seconds so they must add a hundred different camera angles that make it less exciting!

    You're also missing 47 guys in black hoodies crowding around the starting line.

    Funny video, well done.

    Don't forget the drama,

    "Honey, the kids are starving and the house is about to be foreclosed on." she says.

    prominent person on the show, "Sorry, but I have to buy this X part for $20,000. to make my car 3 tenths faster."

    Yeah, and it is supposed to be "illegal" street racing yet, the show where it is. Most cops know where every nook and cranny is in their town.

    I refuse to watch those stupid scripted "reality" shows.

    Kind of like the reality shows, they are anything but real! It is the professional wrestling version of drag racing!

    About the only thing I will watch is the No Prep Outlaws.
    No stupid back stories, very little FnA, and lots of racing.
    Most of them have sponsors with deep pockets, but it's still mostly racing.

    And I like racing...

    1972Mach1 Just some guy.....

    Yep, I've been watching and enjoying No Prep Kings. All racing, no B.S. (almost)...........The original Street Outlaws and the offshoots just got to be too much, especially after they all started making money. Clowns with fast cars acting tough....the old episodes with squealing tires and F1 sounds were the funniest.

    with 300k plus in alot of those cars, they should be fast. I think it's funny how at the start they all had open trailers, now they have multi car stackers.

    I'd still like to see them put a number on it and see how close they can truely come to hitting it.
