Default Street Outlawz

On the new episodes of Street Outlawz that aired last Monday there was a silver Trans Am 4th gen and a red Camaro 4th gen that was part of the Kansas City call out.. I was all excited and all smiles.. Well let's just say they embarrassed all 4th gen owners in the world when the Trans Am got freight trained and the damn Camaro couldn't even make it off the line.. What a let down...

Nah, I don't believe for an instant that they were told to lose or pretend to break down.
The trans am just got beat, plain and simple.
And the red Z-28 had something break somewhere from the trans to the rear.
That kinda thing happens from time to time.

Nah man. FR8train slays em, guy knows how to drive. As for the red Z28, poor guys car broke... I'm sure discovery instructed/paid the fr8train a big chunk of change to blow the tires off on purpose so the 405 would look good. I did feel a little embarrassed though sitting around with my girlfriend and being like hey!! 4th gen that's like mine! Then her laughing in my face as they both lost

You all are dumbasses. Fr8train couldn't run with those cars if his car dead hooked. All the racing on that show is real, not scripted.

Agree.
The slower members of the 405 are at the very least very low 10 second car's.
Fr8train probably has a pretty quick car, but he was clearly out of his area here.
And there's no shame in losing to the car he lined up with.
Get's a thumbs up from me for trying.

I dont watch reality tv. What were the setups on the 4th Gen's? What did they run against? Gotta love people bashing on cars that are almost 20 years old...

Fr8train has proven to run mid 8's.

Fr8train has been high 8s. Plus the car leaves really soft, it's not efficient in the 1/8th at all. Probably a 5.80s car, racing cars that go 5.30s or better. P

What's your point on how old the cars are? The fastest street car on tv at the moment is a 3rd gen Camaro Kye Kelly.. Age ain't nothing but a number..
