Not fake and thats the problem I personally have with it.
99% of the time these guys are on the streets.
These guys are well known and real and not actors.

My problem is the street racing.. and the fact that they keep claiming these are the fastest cars on the street anywhere..

The fact that none of these cars except farmtruck is even semi street legal and they are all flat trailer queen race cars yet they still think they are street cars.

8 second 100% complete and functional interior and tagged/registered cars on the strip get my respect.. these assclowns dragging gutted race cars on the street do not.
the racemaster guy did say that later on. but the opening shot said undisclosed public road. and then later it was the airport. maybe some editing was messed up or they just messed up.

All these "shows" about people doing illegal stuff are somewhat interesting, but you raise a good point. Can't some attorney just subpoena the whole show as evidence? I mean, how do you deny you were making moonshine, or racing cars or whatever, when a whole television series was aired?

It's not just the illegal activity that bothers me its the message they are sending out to impressionable teenagers. It's sad that the one dad said about his son getting into street racing was he couldn't say anything because he does it.

We had a similar situation here a few years back when a 18 year old had a Mustang that was built by his drag racing father for him that got into a street race with a Viper. They topped a hill and the mustang rear ended a CRV that burst into flames Killing one girl and seriously burning the other girl. The boy only got two years for the crime.

I saw it. Looked staged. Kind of an interesting show though. I guess it's just because of the continual suspense of them possibly getting caught and thrown into jail.

Unfortunately not staged I would not have such a big issue with it if it was.
These guys are well known down here and while street racing asshats they are legit.
I have an issue with discovery making them into heroes and telling the world that street racing is ok by proxy regardless of the disclaimers

Ive actually seen that farm truck on several videos online and youtube.

Its a legit truck.

Im sure street racing is big there and that part is real but this is reality TV something in this show is a bit "exaggerated".

I will continue to watch

Its not on trueTV it's on discovery... not quite trailer trash TV.
LS1Tech and 1320 has street racers that have been up there during the filming and swear it's being filmed exactly as it happens.

Yea i feel that its legit. Just you know how reality TV can be, people will "act up" when the camera is around. Just sayin some of the things said, and the fights and arguments might be a bit blown up do to the camera but no matter what i do like the show.

True, I don't even think about street racing. Today I saw this education clip called red asphalt. Right now I feel like and I know it's not worth that. After that video it just hit me. It's not just on the news. I am pretty much in shock. That video was beyond graphic, it's real. It's not a video game, it's not some NCIS show on TV. It's real, it just hit me like a brick wall today. I thought going fast would be cool and all that, but, I feel like I don't even want to go over the speed limit. That video made it a reality. It's not worth it.

What "builds" you mean completely gutting a car of everything that makes it a streetcar to the point they need trailers to move the cars then saying that they have the fastest street cars in the USA... Pfft I'll pass.
I'll stick with Houston's 9 second cars with full interiors and tags.

Maybe some 9/10 second Houston cars need to "DRIVE" up and show them what street cars are ALL about.

What confuses me is they evidently have a local drag strip where I saw last night the kid wanting to break onto the list was trying out his car. I don't understand why they couldn't do their racing at the strip instead if the street... They are a bunch or morons in my opinion.

And why on earth would people go up there and be a moron street racer when we have 3 tracks setup for this exact thing.

Felony street racing is oh so attractive.
down here you get caught it's a felony and they take the car.

I hate that Discovery is trying to glamorize street posers like this.
You got a fast car.. thats GREAT.. take it to the track where it belongs or to sanctioned events where you wont be going to jail or risking lives for your jollies.
