Interesting Idea, But Still Reality TV

Author: BlueVistaGT from United States

This show caught my attention on Speed Channel just yesterday. I was not aware that it had originally aired on February 22, 2013 - I have some catching up to do.

Although I'm not a redneck, I'm the proud owner and fellow enthusiast of a 2006 Mustang GT with too many modifications to mention here. This show has some of the nicest examples of sixties era iron, Charger's, Camaro's, and Mustang's, out there that are not just trailer queens. These guys actually race these machines, including a restored and massaged pickup truck or two, on a 1-mile road coarse against modern imports, i.e. Audi's, Subaru's, S-2000's, Miata's, BMW's, etc... So far, I've seen a modern Camaro race against an import, and noticed they also have a modern Boss 302 in their stable of many cars. I have yet to see the modern Boss 302 race the course, but judging from popular car magazine results and the fact that it matched or exceeded the performance of a modern BMW M3 on a road course, I can't wait to see it in action.

Any car guy will enjoy this show if only to see all the beautiful examples of vintage American iron on the track or even to watch the actual or staged results between the imports and domestics. In most cases, the major mistake of the rednecks is to flaunt tons of horsepower in their '60's era cars without actually focusing on modern suspension parts on these cars - the results are predictable. If suspension is ignored, no matter how much horsepower you add, you gonna lose.. Less weight, more horsepower, balance, the right brake pads, and a reputable suspension = faster track times. My personal setup is a Steeda Stages 1/2/3 G/Trac suspension with Fays2 Watts link as a baseline.

The bottom line is that the rednecks would do just fine with simply a modern Boss 302 and modern Camaro SS to take on all import challengers. Their modern suspensions are world-class and with moderate upgrades such as track pads and/or minor bolt-ons, would be very difficult to beat on any track.

P.S. I am not a redneck

Good Old Fashioned 'Merican Fun

If you're into sissy crap like dance movies, and love stories then you'll probably think it's "drivel". Let's face it, if you're that guy you don't know how to have fun anyway, and ya ain't got no business watching muscle car shows in the first place.

The cars get a little repetitive some times, but it's still fun to watch American Muscle rip it up on a road course. The host and commentator are pretty funny when they're paired up during the races. There's not much "drama" involved in the show, which is another plus in my book. Basically just a bunch of guys and gals out having a good time burning up the track.

Bottom line: If you like classic American muscle, like beer, and wish it was legal to run Prius' off the road then you'll like the show!

The Best TV With Cars Involved Since Top Gear!!!

Author: racercinemaproductions from Canada

RU Faster Than A Redneck? Is the show that recently caught my attention to watch and it is a Good Show and It's interesting that there is not much information about this show and there is by far no search results on Wikipedia.

The plot of this show is there are Drivers that have to race against Redneck drivers and there are 3 rounds and they have different numbers of laps the first round is 1 lap long and then the second round is 3 laps long and drivers have to race against rednecks with more powerful cars and before the race starts the driver has to choose the Redneck driver that he has to race against and if the driver is good enough then he moves on the final round where they have to race against a NASCAR Driver, A Stuntman or any professional driver and the Redneck Driver in this round drives the most powerful Muscle car and if the driver wins then he wins a prize of $10,000.

This TV Show is a must-watch show the reason you must watch the show is not because of the Rednecks the main reason you must watch the show is because of the Good Looking cars and I enjoyed this show and If you are a fan of cars you must watch this show I highly recommend it I give it 7 stars out of 10 because it has good looking cars.

This show is awesome, I'm re-watching it.

This is one of the most entertaining shows I've seen, I wish they would make another season. To the guy "Tomlonso" who hates this show. His is a veteran ballroom dancer, per his other review. No wonder why he doesn't like this kind of stuff, ha-ha.

The modified muscle cars on this show are some of the coolest car you will see anywhere. It gives you some good ideas on what to do next to your own car.

Some of the redneck drivers don't seem all that good, especially since they are running at their home track, but you have to give the inferior import cars a chance somehow.

Absolute drivel

Author: Tomlonso from Kalamazoo MI
26 February 2013

People pitting their cars against each other to see whose is best has happened since the first time two cars met each other on the road. Automobile racing attracts more spectators than any other sport. So a show where American Muscle cars of the 1960's and 1970's are raced against all comers seems like a good idea.

On paper.

There is a difference between being a redneck and being an ignorant fool. There is a difference between being proud of American made cars and being an idiot. There is a difference between trash talk and mindless drivel. John Reep and his gang of drivers remind me of the guys in High School who were always sneaking out behind the auto shop to drink and smoke a cigarette and are now holed up in a broken down trailer out in the woods somewhere.

When this show is on, find something else to do. Like tuning up that '65 Mustang sitting in your garage. Even watching Oprah would be better than this.
