So how many of u all watch pinks.I love the show but I hate the bull that they try and pull on there. Like the people that bring cars that are under 10 sec and they say they got a 10 sec car and they blow the other dude away.I think that they should have to do a pass all out with a camera pointed on the gas pedal to make sure they dont lift, and be timed just like bracket racin and if they break out of that time they loose the race. They could be a lil easy on em if they get like a few hundreds of a sec under, but that just my 2 cents please tell me what u all think,

Couldn't agree more. And I dislike the constant reruns of the same episodes and the fact that episodes are not labeled correctly, at least in the Guide on my Dish system. But the concept is good, and they've made constant improvements, like going from 'best out of 3' to 'best out of 5'. This show really emphasizes how much of the race is in the negotiations. Like the new 'Pinks - All Out', too.

I can't stand the host, for the life of me I don't know why someone hasn't ******ed slapped him all over the track. starting procedures seem to have improved, they need to get rid of the porno/cheapo soundtrack, negotiations should be limited to 6 car lengths or less, sandbaggers could be caught with a tattle tale tachometer. Basically, the show sucks but I watch when nothing else was on, turkey day if I remember right. Dan

pinks

i want to watch this,but i feel like taking a shower after because of all the s--- i get showered in.first of all i haven't seen any stupid drivers attending this show.
1.before coming to show go to local strip get 3 time slips(average time)
2.find two cars of close as possible times.
3.put the time slips of equal et's in a drum and draw on show who runs next.
4 please stop telling the guy winning that you oh mighty god are now leaning toward the other guys request.it's not your car and sound stupid .buddy this is racing run what u-brung not an awards show.i could give my car to charity and at least get a receipt for it.
5.anybody cheating by(not telling the truth should lose his vehicle and that would end this crap.

sorry for my rant .but i think we'll get some more sensible suggestions from my peers.i'll follow this thread as it goes thanks.justin. :thumbup:

What you basically described is Pinks - All Out. Mucho better format, liked watching that. Rick's a dick, but he's a rich dick now - so what. What irks me is all the people that show up " we just got it together last night, don't know what it'll do" and you can tell because they have all kinds of dufus problems. ***, like you didn't know you were on the show until yesterday.

Lose the bald headed dimwit and use a tree........and timers.

Change the name, because it has been shown that they are not losing their cars.

Drag racing is generally good racing and these clowns are just making a mockery of it..........Don Garlits must be shaking his head.

pinks

There was a show where a guy from ky raced and won the other car.
However,There was a side bet for two grand to get your car back if you lost.
So you guys are right because at the end of the show,The guy I know
let his wife drive the loser's car down the track and then sold the car back to
the loser for 2,000 cash.

I watch the show if I'm not doing anything else, but I agree the host needs to lay off the tough guy act (did anyone else see the clip of him dumping the bike on the return road a while back). I know 2 different groups of ppl that have been on the show. the first group only had a few weeks to build a car, the driver only made 3 passes prior to the show and never sprayed it, They lost and ended up buying the car back. The next group went and played the game, their opponent was a d#&k and he ended up losing. After the race he sent one of his buddies over to see about buying the car back, and my friends said sure as long as the other guy comes over and apoligizes. The other guy wouldn't do that so they took his car home with them and parted it out, it was a nice falcon with a big block. I havn't watched the show in probably 4 months so I have no idea what the new format is.

Definitely dont agree with turning it into bracket racing :nono:
Pinks did suck at the beginning (however the concept was cool) and they've come a long way since.
Pinks All Out is far more refined and fair and does drag racing justice.

i think they should use the tree lights, so no one complains the other guy jumped. they should do one race all out, and bet money, lots of money. but then there will always be problems.

leave it as is....... lets see what the new year brings.

Early shows sure did suck and poor quality. Some real turd cars got on the show some how. 1 pass and the motor is kicking rods out?

They could lose the cheesy music.

:D

Without a tree - dumb as the idiot host. I'd rather watch rererereruns of Home Improvement - at least you know it's fiction !!

Ought to use a .4 pro tree, but then Rick couldn't get in every launch shot flapping his arms like a pigeon.

Tried watching the show, can't stand it. Too much BS, too much arguing, has to be absolutely nothing else on the tube before I'll watch it.
