Default Street Outlaws on Discovery Channel, Flips El Camino

Anyone watching Street Outlaws on Discovery Channel tonight? Alot of this is filmed in Moore, OK. These are the normal track guys. You all may recognize Sean with his dog Louise in the Farm Truck.

Flip in his El Camino in his Big Block Gen 5 is racing in this episode too.

Bummer, I knew he did die recently but didn't know how. I seen the video of them making the Hearse driver do a burnout with Flips body in it. I'll see if I can dig it up. Kinda Funny.

I agree, it's just another show. I guess I'm just a bit more excited about it because it's alot of it's filmed right here near me and I know several of the vehicles and I've met several of the guys before. Not that they're famous by any stretch, but you know whutta mean.

Anything produced by the Discovery channel bunch is too full of hype & BS for my taste. They produce some of the stuff for the military channel too, which isn't always factual, but I guess they figure why ruin a good story with facts !

Thanks for posting the burnout video, Larry!
I missed this thread somehow until now.
I watch Street Outlaws every week! I don't care if any or all of it is scripted, I enjoy the show!
So sad to hear of Flip passing away.
RIP Tyler Priddy/Flip

I won't go as far as calling it scripted, but it is for sure is produced, let's put it that way. Most of the guys come up with their own stuff. The races are real, but yes of course the roads are shut down by law enforcement and they are signaled when to roll up, and yes the cops are told what to say, like get the hell outta here etc. Sadly, I think Flip was the most genuine and best sense of humor. Sean and AZN are pretty funny too, but you can tell they're working on it and playing it up. Flip was just being Flip. Season 2 will not be the same without Flip. They start filming Season 2 this week or next week. They've already captured some footage they'll be using for season 2. Season 2 will be even more competative. There will be more cars ready this time. Lots of guys are pulling their cars back out and getting them running to be on the show, and alot of guys are doing things to their cars to meet Pilgrims Studios requirements to race, like cages and stuff of that nature. Now that Pilgrim Studios and Discovery know the type of show will be a success I think it might be a longer season next time, and maybe even a 2 hour finale. I'd expect it to be better but you know how it is, to be good for TV, it will probably be even a bit more produced or scripted and that might hurt it more than help it. We'll see.

Its absolutely pitiful that we have stooped to this kind of trash for tv shows !! No wonder we have so many idiots walking amongst us . Would it be so hard to come up with programs with decent content ? WP

I can sure see why it's not for everyone but I watched all of Season 1 at least a couple times each episode and will for sure be waiting for Season 2. I have been called an idiot many times, so maybe I really am.

Agreed, but some people can't look at stuff like this w/out wanting to be just like them. Its called copy-catting .

I used to illegal street race in Southern Cali in the 80's. Alot of what goes on in this show is EXACTLY how it was in those days. All the trash talking, getting nose to nose in their face etc. Car's breaking underdogs winning etc. So I related to alot of it, and it brought back alot of memories. Am I going to copy cat? NOWAY, but I've been considering going fast again for a few years. You can bet the show did cause an itch and I'll be buying a cam, intake and carb for a vehicle real soon. I don't do 9's and 10's but I'll sure be back in the 12's and with today's technology, maybe even the high 11's. So if that's copy catting, then I'll claim to guilty. We also have a track about 25 minutes away and I usually go to the track as a spectator. Hopefully before the track shuts down for the season I'll get to make a few passes. If not, Spring will be soon enough.

That sounds like fun on the track . I use to run a couple of fuel altered roadsters till I got a face full of methanol on a engine blowup . That was the end of that ! Luckily no fire involved !
