Default Street Outlaws vs Fast & Loud the Mega Race

Anyone been watching this? I got hooked and watch it all the time. Does anyone really believe that Big Chief and his crew could actually build a 4 sec 1/8 mile drag car in 8 days then haul it all the way to LA to boot? Trying to figure out where they are going with this, and why all the way to Fontana? Turned out to not be much of a race after all the buildup. I'm betting Chief uses this new car as his street car since he mentioned that he isn't going to race the "Crowmod" on the street anymore?

Hate myself for getting so friggin hooked on this show.

i feel like Fast and Loud lost alot of his unique "soul" when Aaron left. aaron had all the creativity in the builds, richard just became money hungry.

that said, i was pretty happy when Chief walked their asses down the drags.

i can see them building it in 8 days. they most likely took most of the build time getting the parts they needed. then it was a matter of slapping it together. it really was a recreation of his old car after all.

as far as racing on the street, there was a big issue with NHRA and cheif "street racing". they would not let jason race NHRA if he continued to race on the street and i know he has really gotten into the racing circuit more now. im assuming they eitehr worked something out since its not really street racing or he really isnt going to race on the show anymore. guess we will see! cant see him not racing on the show though

but yeah Ken, im hooked on both shows lol

I don't know when the Mega Race shows were filmed, but I do know he revealed the new car at the PRI show in December. It IS going to be his new street racing car. They are doing away with pro-mods on the street and at all the no-prep races, which has become the new thing to do it seems like. All that will come to light in this season of the show. I think Fontana was a Discovery thing having something to do with the weather or something.

I had an opportunity to go to a list race this Saturday night but was already committed to help my buddy with his midget at a POWRi national race instead.

The car was already built and a proven chassis.., they threw the old parts, door and a new front clip on it to make it look like the old crow body. They didn't have to do much.. when we raced the Armageddon event in OKC last season, Promods won the event under "street car" rules. People weren't happy, and the no promod rule started being enforced.

I just listened to their latest podcast from last week this evening. They both had 105 days from when they agreed on the rules to complete their cars and for Richard to have been able to get his license to drive the car. That's why Chief was so pissed.

I enjoy watching the Midwest guys, gas monkey not so much.

I think Richard was disappointed when Jason didn't shake his hand after the race

Word on the bookface is that the crowmod is getting a different engine for nhra racing.

That was some serous rotational G's.

Glad to see the Midwest crew win, but the deal with Richard seemed pretty rude. Especially knowing that no track is gonna let him make a full pass without a NHRA license.. So what's the point? Should have taken his money and shook his hand.

I think old Gas Monkey garage is gonna go down hill fast with out Aaron there now.

I seen the episode with the rules also. Richard didn't follow the rules they had set at all. But honestly I don't really care who they'd have put in their car I still think Big Chief old multi colored car would have took him either way..

I think big che if wouldnot be near as good without the old Pennsylvania man helping him. Jeff Lutz is impressive with his drag week wins and fabrication background.

The new crow is one bad mother. I feel bad for the GMG guys that have to work for Richard. I never liked him before and now I can't stand him. On their newest podcast Shawn said RR was yelling at the production crews and flipping out about how bad he's going to look.

If you like the show on TV you need to be listening to the Chief and Shawn show.

Did you notice the little comment they made about the new Crow being faster than the Crowmod?.....

love both shows! However gas monkey wont be the same without Aaron he was the brains of that shop. Im hoping he gets his own show tho. I also mainly watch street outlaws for Asian and Farmtruck they make the show worth watching.

As for the "street racing" I've been out with my boyfriend here in MN and the show isn't real street racing. Real street racing doesn't involve lights with generators set up haha
