    RU Faster than a Redneck

    Watching Car Wars on Speed Channel and I saw this commercial....



    Look really interesting, saw at least a couple BMWs, a Gallardo & STI racing against some Domestic Muscle (Old & New)

    Thoughts, discussion, anyone planning on watching it, etc.

    Ehhhh - I hate all these overly contrived shows that Speed does. And since they lost F1 I literally haven't watched that channel since the last race.

    I'd be interested in domestic vs euro showcases, but this seems a bit too, well, redneck for me to give it any attention. The fact their promos show cars getting jacked up and drivers getting slapped around doesn't help at all.

    Should do well with a certain segment of the NASCAR demographic tho, which I'm sure is all they are really after.

    Interesting concept albeit a bit stereotypical. I'll give it a shot.

    Rednecks are all running 600-700 whp Year One built resto mods, basically modern race cars with clasic bodies. we are talking big Brembo and Stop Techs brakes, coil over suspension, aluminum control arms and more ridid chassis than any production vehicle is coming of the production lines with today.I am going to see if I can get my C BS on the show....my guess is they don't like an equal playing field.

    FYI, Year One built cars have won the Optima Street Car Invitational Race three out of the last five years. These Rednecks are piloting rocketships. These are the fastest street cars in the world, I was invited to Road America qialifier last year but had mechanical trouble a few days before event. Gonna try it again this year with the C BS.

    Saw Mary Pozzi & her Camaro in there (1st appearance at 1:30), she's kinda a big deal in the domestic aftermarket world. Her car's setup for auto cross, so it's def not cranking out the big HP like some of those cars

    The event caters to a broad range of vehicles, there are autocross events and high speed events, the lower powered more balanced cars with great drivers fair well against some of the big power cars with average drivers however there are a dozen or so super high powered cars with great drivers so every year the main event comes down to those cars. Another interesting fact about the event is they do not allow R compound tires....this is a true street car race.

    Interesting... If it wasn't for the detrimental weight, I'd expect GTRs + Turbo P-Cars to dominate with their AWD systems. Guess it really comes to the best performing car that can be built on street tires combined with a brave & skillful driver. Are there any other rules besides the tire tires? Like no roll cage, stripper interiors, etc?

    Street tires, and only one set for event and something like a 25 mile drive on the street is pretty much all I recall.
