Yah it's like any other reality show these days. 90% of it is scripted/staged.

I remember seeing a thread on SVT Performance talking about the show and BoostedGT was answering some questions. Short story, the guys are paid, supposedly not very well, the races do happen but are staged, and the whole "back roads, dodging cops" scene is fake.

Imo the only car on that show that is closest to an actual street car is Boosted's Cobra, and I'm not saying that because it's a mustang. He runs E85, small tires and could probably legally drive the car across country if he wanted to. And maybe Farmtruck, they actually do show it driving down the highway in traffic.

Well considering it's obviously fake street racing and definitely staged, that part loses interest.

And as much as I hate racing in just a straight line it's even more boring to watch on tv lol.

Yeah some is staged but they do actually race and are licenced to close down a street and race otherwise they would be taking video of a crime And would of been busted already. And they claim fastest street raced cars not fastest street cars. Boosted gts car is a street car per say. He spun his **** last episode lol.

Yea staged and obviously on closed areas with permission, and then I also hate all the drama behind it. I'd rather watch F1 or LeMans. Hell I'd even watch Nascar first lmao

I'm pretty sure Big Chief or whatever his name is claimed on several different episodes that OK as the "fastest street cars in America", but whatever.

Putting all the reality show b.s. aside, those guys do have some fast *** cars, which require a lot of building and tuning, which I can appreciate.

There's a difference between street cars and street raced cars and he says street raced cars. But I can see where people would shun on the show but it's just entertainment to me. Like watching boosted gt and see the different mustangs on there. And btw Jeff Lutz in the 57 Chevy drives his car across country to drag strips for drag week every year and he's on the show ususaly with chief and murder nova in the shop.

Yeah thats kinda why i watched it, staged or not like seeing scream off the line. Its more about seeing the different rides for me. Its no different than watching fast and furious im pretty sure those scenes are staged lol

"Fast" can also be subjective.

I would prefer a car that can take corners over one that does a straight line.

They don't really try to hide the fact that those races are performed on closed roads, with the local governments approval and cooperation. They were doing that in OK even before this show began.
Lol.
I've never seen a "street race" where they set up light towers and have an ambulance standing by. And all of those guys have their trucks and trailers there, like they are at a NHRA event. I even saw a cop car in the background of one of the races last season!

Really, their "claim to fame" is that they race on, mostly, unprepared surfaces.
The best part of the show is Farmtruck and Azn. At least their "extracurricular' races seem sorta legit... Kinda.

Overall, the show is pretty weak, but those guys do have some fast cars.

I'm sure they've done it off camera as well. I mean who would video tape all that if it wasn't legit/legal, would have to be stupid lol.
