95% of the time someone s up their ride. Just like that stupid ass show Whips. What a moronic thing to start calling a car. Whoever came up with it should be shot. Probably the same retard who coined the term "bling bling". Tv, that's what it should be called. " Tv, for es 24/7/365 who don't know a g thing."
Oh, and in the old days, the alterations to cars wasn't as so severe so you had a more level playing ground and no one crying about NOS or let me check that engine, give me 20 lengths, etc etc.

I think the show is alright. Sure there's a lot of whining on it but, I find it hilarious to watch it. Plus sometimes there are good races where something doesn't break and it's a really close race. Although half the time it gets to be ridiculous but it's all good.

I have watched the show for a couple of seasons. It isn't who has the fastest car, its all about negotiating and sand bagging and drama. I watched one episode with an RX-7 with a turbo. I caught a glimpse of a dash mounted boost controller. The driver could change the max boost in seconds before the race and become faster if the negotiation went the wrong way. And the latest thing is to lift if you are winning or losing so you can ask for the car lengths you want. One of my favorites was the honda guy that had nos and agreed to take it off in trade for lengths. At the end of the show he admitted the nos did not work.

Ive seen some good races, some bad races, some down right stupid races. I think it should be heads up "run what ya brung" kinda deal. None of this lengths BS or not spraying or whatever. All you ever hear on there is excuses it seems, like no one wants to own up to the fact they are going to lose their car cause its slower. Im sure paul walker would be pysched on the show, he likes racing for pinks.

I think the only problem with the show is, the fact that the people who get on there are the ones who want their 15 minutes of fame and they lose the race because they were to worried about how they look on camera.

lengths are car lengths given to the opposing team in drag race to give them either a better chance against a faster car or to lose more quickly because they don't realize that you lose more traction the further you get down the track.
