I cant help but laugh at the butthurt over this show
The main key is, None of those shows are based out of OKC.
No I dont have a 1000hp car , but I do have 2 cars that have way more than whats streetable power. And Im decent at getting the power down.
But a good driver is able to control and get down power to the ground for the most part, instead of romping on it. You know your car and what the limits are going to be trying to drive it on the street. Especially since these guys are somewhat considered "pro's" on the street.

my classifieds feedback
So, a few weeks ago I decided to look around for another car to play with. This next car had to be different than what I usually drove since Im getting older and have been thru most of my 'phases'. I thought. When OSA member tRidiot got his new black/black/black 370z a few weeks ago I saw that thing and wanted one baaad but just couldnt justify putting out the cash for one and still be able to afford all the other fun things I want to do this summer, so I decided to look for a 350z. I decided on the Z cars because I wanted a RWD car like my Supra plus I wanted to start out with a car with no turbo or supercharger presently on it. Ive owned a few Z cars in the past but I wasnt crazy into them even though I really liked the 350 generation of Zs when they first came out. So I went looking for one. I looked at a shite bunch of them over the last few weeks but just couldnt find 'the one' even though a couple came pretty close, no black/black like I wanted.
A buddy who I mess around with doing car audio installs calls me up about a car he bought on a whim a few weeks ago with the intent to flip like he does alot of cars but he ended up needing some really quick cash to go to the real estate deliquncy auction the next day so he was selling a couple of cars as quick as he could and he remembered me calling him looking for a 350z. But what he had wasnt a Z car. Luckily for me though it ended up being its fancier cousin, and it was black/black- an 04' Infinity G35. I got it way under book because he was so desperate for cash. The car came with some of the usual 'light' aftermarket mods done by the guy he bought it from- upgraded cams, new ECU w/tune, CAI, headers&exhaust, adjustable suspension/coilovers, a nice double DIN HU w/all 6 new Bose interior speakers and a massive amp mounted in the trunk with a 12" sub in a custom built box, decent looking 'Z' 20" chrome wheels (gladly it didnt have the ubiquitous black rims on it) on brand new Hankook Ventus V12 Evo's (255-35-zr20s/285-30-zr20s), etc. I bought it 'to help my friend out' (that was my justification to the wife!). Maybe I'll do more mods, maybe I wont. For now Im really just enjoying driving the damn thing. Its not going to be a racer, and gladly its not a FWD. Its also not a total wuss, it actually runs pretty freakin fast, for what it is. Whatever it is. I havent figured that one out yet.
Keeping to the OP. Im an idiot I guess because I like to watch these shows like this one in the OP. Reality? Maybe, maybe not, but its pretty close to what I have witnessed here, in California, Nevada, etc.

"Alright alright alright...".
And I'm talking about the douche's who will pull up beside you at a light & start talking about their mods & how much boost they are pushing. When I had my import I thought it was bad, but once I bought my TA it was even worse. Everyone with their parents hand me down civic with a cold air & fart can thought they were the fastest thing in Tulsa.
You should link to your E46, I'm geniunely interested.
I should have known better though, you're obviously in tune with the whole scene and have a firm grasp on driving safety. Is your real name Walter Sobchak, btw?

Its funny, I have lived around here my whole entire life and have never heard of guys like these. A list of the "best" street racers? What a joke. If you have a car that is like that then take it to a real drag strip and race there. That is what people with cars like that do. How about Thunder valley? And the way that one dude said that racing is more important than making his house payment. What a moron. If it is true those are some of the dumbest people in the state. And what threw it over the edge is "farmtruck". Are you kidding me or what? There is no way that a truck of that size would come close to hanging with some of those hot rods. I don't care how much power it has they would be too heavy to give them what they need. I know enough about racing to know that is a crock. And on the end of it is said that one guy tragically died and that the show was dedicated to him. He probably ain't really dead.
Farmtruck is legit. http://youtu.be/zcPHHEea3lE You're welcome to call him out for the #10 spot.
Yes there are generators and lights out there and yes there are cops blocking the roads off for the tv show. Discovery is a little smarter than you're giving them credit for. But the cars are real, the "list" is real, the racing is real. Spots on the list are changing hands on the races you see on tv.
As for Tyler: http://www.turnerfh.net/PastObituary...7-68e72c7bda68 That's real too.
