The final race seven mile wide was cool but it's on dirt. Therefore you would've needed an all-wheel-drive sleeper. Where was an STI would be in its natural environment?

Watched the first episode. I found it entertaining due to the Paul Walker link with the dude in the Ford GT - nice backstory.

Agree that most of the "sleepers" should not be labeled as such.

Haven't been inclined to watch a second episode yet.

I watched the first two episodes. Is it me, or are the supercar drivers the least douchey characters in each show? Oh well, but of course
I'm sure they play up the whole "chip on my shoulder" and "underdog" aspects of the other people...

I thought the guy with the Sonoma was ok until he had his meltdown, what an idiot.

So after watching the first episode from start to finish I just watched the first 10 min or so of each episode to get a sense of the characters and their cars and back story. Then FF to the race.

Honestly few of the cars were actual sleepers except for the minivan and delivery van.

I think the premise of the show was ok but I don't think it was completely thought out.

I've seen the whole season now. The way to do it is watch the first couple minutes of intro for each car & owner, then skip to them lining up for the final race. The whole thing takes about 20 minutes that way. And then, it's not too bad.

Who remembers the guy with the chrome lambo punching it like 3 seconds before the light turned green.... A little antsy?

LOL...I was hoping it would be a good race and he had secretly modded his lambo with some performance bits.

Unfortunately he was a bit too eager...and unfamiliar with using the launch control.

Judging from the way the trailer was cut, we don't actually see anyone crash. It's all aftermath?

i finished it.

i'm usually down to watch a show with a bunch of car races, so i don't feel it was a waste of time. but i really wish they broke away from this stupid reality show formula of giving everyone a damn sob story so you root for them. i would have rather they focused on what mods were on the cars, what kind of numbers they were putting down, etc. in the prelude to the races.

i won't give away the ending but at least the person who won wasn't one of the people who irritated me
