Default Street Outlaws - Discovery

Search turned up nothing.

So, watched the season premier of the worst show on television.
http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/street-outlaws

Based in OKC "real life fast and furious" - The first 'race' almost ended horribly when the mustang goes off the road after losing control and going into the grass. After the first 30 minutes of them talking about 'finding places to race' and 'avoiding police'.. I realized that there are really dumb people in this world, and they are being filmed by the Discovery Channel.

They have a 'list' of the best street racers, and its a bunch of shouting and 'calling out people' One dad "Monza" is encouraging his son to start street racing. I weep for the future. This could seriously be on TruTV. Glamorizing and encouraging people to do not only highly illegal street racing, but putting countless lives in danger. So many scenes of 'stop light' racing in heavy traffic.

The worst part is... Thunder Valley Raceway is in Noble, about 15 miles from where these idiots were racing. Why not take these cars and go to the track?

The BEST part was... My Monte Carlo crapped on the 'old pickup' at Thunder Valley. That truck has been around the drag track for years.

So, Discovery, what's next.. Naked and afraid meets Street Outlaws?

I caught it last night. The funny part, where they are racing at the end. If you notice in one of the in-car shots and maybe one outside at the end of the "street" you can plainly see a set of red/blue lights flashing on a patrol car lol.

Apparently one of the members has already died.

I can't believe that collection of **** boxes is the 'best around'....half of them can't make it 60ft without it breaking sideways on them.

Have you ever driven through OK? The fact that any of them move under their own power is impressive enough.

I had to turn it off, the scene where the old truck comes up on the camaro that "wants some" was way too much for me.

And I'm supposed to believe they all got away from the cops... when the camera man is right there filming a cop. So the cop is all "OH can't take the camera guy he wasn't doing anything". get the **** outta here.

Cameras in "chase cars" Then the two knuckleheads in the truck laughing about the fact that the smoked some camaro. That idiot azn guy all "BAHHH AHAHAHA" in the passenger seat.

I just don't understand how / why discovery thinks it needs to do this crap. I tried to see if I could recognize where those guys were trying to do all the racing. Landmarks. Looks alot like south okc / around shields.

10 guys on this 'list' racing each other for the 'spot' on the list. Just go do Thunder Valley.

I imagine it was after he saw the footage of his life, sort of like this but suicide at the end

Anyone have a link to watch online?

I'm not into the street racing thing but have friends that are familiar with it. They know some of the cars and the people. I haven't watched any of it but I can't imagine that its not completely staged.

For Discovery Channel insurance reasons it must be staged.

I watched two minuets, mostly what I got is that NASCAR is to complicated for these guys because they turn, even if they only turn left, to scary. Also they expect the audience to be completely retarded, dumb enough to believe that secret street racing involved towed light towers and gen sets and tents. This is more "The bored and toothless" than "The fast and the furious". Also, I had no idea you could make the F&F look like a true art piece, but they have.

It is staged, you can see the pixels!

The "airstrip rental" with generators and flood lights... yeah which street racer bought all that to the event?

Watched it last night and even though it made me feel dirty inside, I liked it. Nothing funnier than a bunch of rednecks taking themselves too seriously.

Anyone still watching this? It's like a drug that I can't stop! Least it comes on after Fast N Loud.

I couldn't believe that one guy actually went to a track to test his car.

This show is ridiculous, but like Pondo said, it's a train wreck and you cant look away. It's clearly staged, since they would be rolled up in a heartbeat at their homes if it were real.

I love how Chuck the mustang guy said he would rather miss a few house payments so he could have money to street race with. Too funny.

One of the big problems beyond the obvious is these "fastest street racers in the nation" spend a whole hell of a lot of time in trailers. If they are all trailer queens, all anyone needs is $xxx,xxx for a 3 year old NHRA Promod or better yet Top Fueler and OMG I"M NUMBER 1!!11!!!

Has to be a street car, daily drivable or it's just a average regional drag car.

Basically. I do chassis fabrication for a living. We have built actual street cars that would hang with those cars without issue. We did a small tire 25.2 mustang with a billet big block and 3 stage nitrous setup. That thing was absurdly fast.
