Did you see this? **Might be a repost**

Did you see the Honda get wooped on Pinks the other day? Even without the nitrous the F-body was owning the Civic. The only time the civic won is with 20 car length lead. It was pretty Bad.

Re: Did you see this? **Might be a repost**

its a pretty retarded show if they would do it right it would be FAR more fun. They buy the cars from the people before hand so its not really losing your car...

they either do that or they make you sign something saying after you win the car you have to give it back~ cant remember someone on svtperf.com said his friend was on there and they made them do something retarded like that.

I figured it was just a fake drama thing they decided to screw around with.

Still, some of their shows on there are nice. Especially on HD.

a guy's uncle on corral went on (it was the white nova that raced the orange camaro) and he said he got to keep both cars.

He sold the civic back for 300 bucks b/c the kid's dad threatened to buy him a Z06 and f-body dude didn't want him to have a real car. But then the civic kid sold the civic and is buying a Z06 neways.

Re: Did you see this? **Might be a repost**

Ok, forget the 300 bucks, here's the whole rundown.
The owner of the TA said on camaross.com:

http://web.camaross.com/forums/showthread.php?t=437572

Put down 520 (which is normal for a 600hp car), head gasket was fine, they did some slight tuning though.
He DID cry
But they didnt sell it for 300, dude with the TA says, he had money to replace his trans plus alot more. He said he wont say the amount because the kid had to be taken to a clinic for an emotional breakdown after the show.


The main thing is the race was supposed to be for mid 10's cars, the kid ran his mouth about how fast his car was "ran mid/low 10's" but never ran it on the track. The TA was good for 9s on motor, but they detuned it to 10.5 off the juice by pulling alot of timing and setting the 2 step to around 2300rpms instead of 4500. The civic was good for 10.9 at best on slicks, but the guy sucked at driving it.

He even said "I lost 3rd gear" but the TA team says 3rd on the civic was fine.

The TA DID loose 2nd gear, because of the trans brake was held at stageing for way too long and built up heat because the civic kid took too long to stage. On a 3 speed car, 2nd gear is kinda important.

And the asshat did sell the car, and is getting a Z06 (I dont want that kid driving a corvette)


Check it out at the camaro site for the ta's view, just be ready to weed through 20 pages of stuff.

Or go here:

for the honda version lol

Here's a reply from Jeff (TA driver)
