exactly on the lights come on an "illegal race" wit all those lights thats bs and the road looked either full of rubber or prepped before the race….

just like they beat dallas its all about the show if they lose then the show looks bad so its bs….


and yea the fast and loud was a little dumb at first but they have been them selfs the whole time they don't look like there trying to act like in street outlaws

Yeah, I like fast and loud more
they are more real, but sometimes their taste is a lil wack
but back to SO, BS on the street racing, I can bet my left nut that its a closed road and the police r in on it.

Before the big races they went out to look for some "new" road to race on and when race night came looks way different from the new road they had scouted new fresh road and when they show up looks like the same road they been racing on plus all the burn out marks were not there lol

It may have been staged, but it did capture the stupidity that goes on at street races pretty good. Same crap used to happen at the ones I went to which is why I quit going there and just went to the track. Safer, legal, less physical violence lol. I couldn't believe when Steven jumped the light the first time he said it didn't matter lol. It's called red lighting it at the track and you are disqualified.

I like this show, but there is nothing "reality" about it. Common sense would tell you that all of the racing is done on closed courses.

It would be next to impossible to get all the cars PLUS the production crew out to some public road and stage races. And even if you could, the liability involved would be through the roof. Nobody would be stupid enough to produce such a show.

And all of the "confrontations" are pretty contrived and clearly scripted.

But I still find myself watching...

your right about that they have to do it in a closed road which they could do it another way wit less camera crew…. but in that case they should be called
Race Outlaws it would of made more sense and wouldn't make it look fake cause they race on closed streets so its not really illegal street racing like they claim so much

I only watch because it comes on after Fast N Loud and nothing else is worth switching channels for...

One thing that was never mentioned is the reason the two guys that dropped out of the top 10, or did I miss that part. Also the guy that passed away, did they mention if he was sick or something?

They said the reasons you drop out are if you die, sell your car, or decide to quit racing. The whole show seems staged. Fast N Loud is definitely the better show of the two and I would love to win that Bandit car. My dad had a 1979 10th anniversary Bandit edition just like that, he had to trade it on a station wagon, what a sad day that would be. Glad I'm having kids and get to keep my toys.
