and a crx or civic, can't remember but it was in all out, and it did amazing, I stopped watching so not sure how far he gotThese were the pinks episodes with import cars-
1. red turbo civic coupe vs. black pontiac trans am - trans am won
2. pink turbo civic hatchback vs. white turbo rx7 - rx7 won
3. pinks all out - gray rx7 made it to final 16 then lost
I agree, ALL-OUT is better in that regard. I think PINKS ALL-OUT should be the show by default, and cut the regular PINKS out of the picture because negotiating lengths is gay :thumbdownAll-out is better. Its a single-elimination race with something like 16 different cars. Also, they have a rule that if you arent within a tenth or 2 of your qualifying time you get DQed. That prevents the sandbagging and makes people have to run their car all-out every time.
I'd think that only the losers would regret losing their rides on national TV :lol:LOL...Yeah. I never liked how they would bicker and whine when negotiating conditions of the races.
I sometimes wonder if afterwards those guys regret going on national TV and acting like a bunch of crybabies.
Was there a lot of "sandbagging"?Well i went to the taping here in NY this past weekend. it was freezing cold, but it should be a good episode. It airs in march. It was a 67 chevelle was an 82 Supra. And lets just say, while the chevelle allways had it off the launch, once that huge turbonetics turbo spooled up, the supra won it by a couple of car lengths. needless to say we finaly have an import winning on pinks!
