Disclamer: While I am not a fan of the way the show is produced, I do like the cars that come out of the show. All of the following comments are directed to those that are involved with the editing of the show. Once the cars are in the build up phase, I will start with complementing the builders and stop bitching about how they are keeping the show from being what it could be, a showcase for builders, like biker build off.


Just got finished watching the first episode. How much of that show is staged? And whats with not being able to take that box out? So you have to keep that area of the dash stock? I understand the show is all about selling the sponsors stuff, and I don't mean product shots like most shows, but these guys whore themselves out. I am not saying I would not go on the show to showcase my skills, but it is just a little heavy on the ads. Like in the last season where the blaser only got 160 horse power and they dumped in some sponser oil and got 150 more horse power.

without saying too much (im not aloud to).. i will comment on a couple points.

within the on air show "rules" (and i use this term very loosely....very) it states that the "sync" system must remain in the car at all times. therefor we were not aloud to mess with the head unit or sync system in any way...kinda sux to be honest but, those were the "rules".
ill say that its funny you asked "how much of the show is staged?" after the first episode. ill just say...flag #1.

when it comes down to it...its all about the dough for those people AND THATS IT. as far as our skills getting showcased, i doubt that will happen. all i can hope for is that people see the car at one of the flex shows and on the tv show, respect the amount of work to time ratio, be impressed and want to get some serious work done.

i appreciate you checking the show out (i didnt watch it ) and i can tell by your questions and comments that we are on the same page.
ill say this much...when the show is a rap and i have the car back in my possesion with paperwork signed over and all...the truth will be told.

please stayed tuned and let me know how you like our progress.


ps. a big hint is in the thread title...please re-read.

Just watched the first episode.

Rules, lol. And I thought when that idiot from Staten Island explained the rules that she meant Sync had to be in the final car, not remain in the car the whole time.

And the Funkmaster bringing up what he did was real uncool.

watched the first show. Congrats dope for going through the whole process. How did you end being on the show? Did they contact you or did you have to submit an entry or something?

Can't wait to see the final car.

Yeah man. How the **** are you supposed to come up with a GOOD car layout for the car in only 5 mins. Getting in too much detail would be kind of stupid.

Anyway, I also thought the Sync was supposed to be in the car in the end result of the car. Oh well... The focus sucks
