Default Who would want to see FM vs BEGi on Pinks?

Well, I see both companies trying to out do each other. I think it would be fun to see the FM-II 3071 vs the BEGi S5 Kit. Finally put it all to rest. Bring out the big turbos on the flagship kits (on otherwise identical 1.8 BP miata's.)

That would be the best Pinks episode ever. Also cool would be either FM or Begi vs a muscle car shop, you know, so there is actually a fair domestic vs import episode. Perhaps this topic should be created on the m.net forums as well.

best episode ever was when the two busa drag bikes ran.

Heads up, no bullshit, just straight racing. How drag racing is supposed to be done.

Bah. I don't want to see FM or BEGI racing for Miatas when both companies already have a bunch of Miatas. I'd rather see them racing to see who's shop gets burned down. Put some real **** on the line.

Don't think it would be cool Pinks style. Would rather see it in the style of that show on ESPN (can't remember the name) where both competitors start with by taking a pull in bone stock cars. They then get X time to make all the modifications--4 hours or something. After that they take a run again. Then the drivers switch cars and take a run in their competitors' cars. Then they get back in their own cars and make a final run for all the marbles.

Would like to see it occur on a "real" track though--maybe a standing 1/4 which then leads to a hot start around for a lap.

Got it
PIPES Power. Ingenuity. Performance. Speed. Efficiency.


Both teams get $X and $Y to set up their cars. Say $6000 worth of hardware at current retail and 8 hours to install and tune. And they switch cars for one session. More fair than sandbagging, I mean Pinks.

Still makes my giggle just thinking about it. It is really a seriously annoying show, but its better than nothing. I hate to admit it, but its the only show I really watch on TV. I just wish it was a 1000 so they could of got a new host. Someone who keeps his ******* shirt on....., or a girl.

Competition would definetly need to be something more than just the 1/4. More like the C&D tuner competitions that FM went to. Love the idea of limited budget and build time.

I watched him dump that bike about 5 times in a row. Recorded the later showing after watching it the 1st time. Best thing he was talking up how experienced he is on bikes. "this could have happened to anyone" crap. Admit it baldy, you dropped your pants and showed the nation your Ken doll crotch to everyone in America by dumping that bike.
