    Just out, Season 2 of The Fastest Car is out on Netflix! Episode 1 has a '92 Talon in it or is advertised as such!
    Nice to see one of our own on this show!
    Just an FYI if you happen to have Netflix.
    Does anyone know who's DSM it is???

    I'm surprised you haven't heard of Tom Noonen's 8 second DSM.

    There was a Colt on season one running a 4g63 as well. Thank you for the heads up. Hopefully the 1G moves on! If you have not already, check out hyperdrive on Netflix. Fun skills show and has some bad ass cars.

    The show is horrendous and you learn virtually nothing about the cars. All they do is play up the rich/poor guy/girl driver drama with a 10 second race at the end. Such a waste, but congrats to Tom and his daughter for getting on tv. Tom does go into more detail on the ecmlink forums if anyone is interested in more details.

    The show in general could’ve been so much better. But again it’s awesome to see a DSM get recognition

    The AWD Honda got her by a half car at the end. That little car backhalfed hard to catch her. It was close and I thought Adrianna had it in the bag!

    Hint... if you fast forward to the races and skip all the garbage you can watch a whole season in a few minutes. I agree with vegas, that show SUCKS.

    The final for season 1 was a "drag race" on sand. Why not a runway? Stupid...

    Neat that she was on there... I wonder if that is the spot Sam Morrison would have been in if she made it on the show.

    Considering how fast it came around at the end it made it look like she was standing still.. I was expecting the race to be entirely fake until I read the link forums and the hp of that tin can. Too bad the show had to break its own rules to run the civic.

    Which rules are those? (I'm not very familiar with the show, but I did want this episode)

    IIRC, that Civic has been a full second quicker in the 1/4 than Tom and Adriana's car. The show adds in drama where it normally wouldn't be but I thought she drove it well. Neat seeing familiar faces and a DSM on TV.


    EDIT: NM, just found Tom's post about it on the ECMlink forum:

    "The civic is a 1300hp track car. By the rules it wasn't supposed to be on the show but they had no replacement. All cars were supposed to be garage built street cars. Tagged and insured. The whole concept of the show is if you were out cruising around in your garage built "sleeper car" and ended next to a super car at a light with a clear road ahead, how would you do against it? A track car that can't even drive around on the street doesn't fit the concept. But when there is no replacements and the show needs a 4 wide race then the rules get thrown out the window. All in all it was an amazing experience and I'm very thankful my daughter got to be a part of it.

    The rule actually stated that all participants vehicle must be street legal for the state it is registered in minus emissions modifications. That was rule one. Aside from that rule there was also a safety rule the civic was not in compliance with. But again the show mattered most and they simply hoped everyone would have the integrity to follow the rules they issued. They apparently didn't have any experience dealing with Hondas from south Florida...
    The civic simply wasn't streetable at all. Didn't even have an alternator. No one wonders how a full on track only drag car will do against a stock super car."

    I have huge respect for her family and that 1g, they both really performed.. I was so rooting for her to win I actually became verbal in the last few seconds. I will believe Tom's account of the race, it just felt like that last half was faked for video based on mph suddenly gained but we are also talking hundreds more more hp and hundreds less pounds in weight.
