    SPOILER ALERT!

    I usually enjoy this show. Tommy Christmas and crew seem like a good bunch of guys. Last night's episode ends with him racing a 72 Challenger he built, against a Hellcat - just so happens it looks just like mine so I thought this was gonna be cool. The 72 wins by a half a car because the Hellcat ran in the 12's?? I was so pissed, couldn't believe it.

    Anyone else see this? SMH

    I watch a lot of car shows but that one is unwatchable....just sayin.

    Stay with Bitchin' Rides; that crew has talent and they live Mopars.

    I like Fantom Works and Legendary too. Usually an entertaining show but this race was lame. I'll check out Bitchin.

    I was hoping to see the Crowmod in action on Street Outlaws-stayed tuned for Fat and F...the only saving grace to the show is the daughter Jess is cute.
    No reason to be pissed-it's a show-even a poorly driven manual hellcat should be able to clock 11's lol...

    Well, kinda pissed but that's what I was thinking, should have been in the 11s. I'd like to see the Crowmod too.

    That car back in the day when I grew up was so bad. Now the Hellcat wins that race no problem. I watched it because I seen the mention of the Hellcat. I know its a show but its a Hellcat bone stock will win easily. That was just for the show . Change drivers and Hellcat wins easily lol.

    Hey Bo,

    How is your race season going so far this year? I hope you're getting out there and having fun. I haven't seen any posts from you in a while.

    I watched the show and was entertained. It's what I expected, they wouldn't show a stock Hellcat beating the car they'd put all that time and money into.
    I've done almost the exact same race myself with my 2016 A8 auto and my 71 Challenger with a stroked 440 (512). My 440 has no funny gas, just a simple stroker build with CNC Stealth heads and a comp hyd roller cam, 727 with 3.91's, open headers, full interior street car. Best it's ran is 11.71. Best the Hellcat ran the one time I had it out was 11.53. The track is around 4000'. I have M/T drag radials on both cars. I had a buddy run my 71 and I ran the Hellcat. I beat him all three times we raced each other but it was close. The last race I drove the 71 and he drove the Hellcat, he'd never sat in the drives seat before this. He didn't get the drag radials warm enough on the Hellcat. He spun off the line, I didn't, and he never caught me. We both ran low 12's that time. Hellcats are very beatable with today's speed parts you can build up old muscle cars with. Hellcat's are unbeatable in style, comfort and drive ability, not to mention dependability. I had to work on the 71 when I got it home, drove the Hellcat home.

    What did you think of the Dart build? I thought the time was terrible for a stroked and blown small block but he did spin a lot. That should be a low 12, high 11 second car also.

    Can't go wrong with Fantom Works--I worked with the owner, Dan Short, for a few years during his government service with the "Nightstalkers". Great guy with an extreme attention to detail in everything he does.

    All the shows that flip cars, like Wheeler Dealers hide the labor costs when they report profit, like tall Ed works for free...such a joke in real world but when you get $75k an episode then all the numbers are whacked.
