I just did my audition for MTV's "My Ride Rules" in Dallas. I think I smoked it. I was the only one that they asked to come back and fill out more waivers. I laid out a dude in an SRT8 challenger "Road racer" { sic: STOCK!} who did his burn out and left his traction control on...lol82361

Good luck!

Not a fan of the neon light in the bumper cover...or the bra. But, if that's your personality, then leave them since that's part of the show...and judged awarded points.

He probably put those one just so he would stand a chance in the show. They don't let on any with subtle taste, and when they do it's always a classic.

That truck looks like a subtle classic.











:suspense:


Also I like how big the Challenger (or how small our cars look) by comparison...lol

if you joined the GCC (gold caliper club) you might have just the edge to win (if you make it)

redline and stealth gray were built in low numbers. Thunder gray in VERY low numbers.

Silver is only the fastest color if Stealth Gray isn't in the race.....

Sorry i havn't commented....Actually the hood bra is hiding substantial rock chips and a small dent. For $59, its cheaper than a hood right now. The show is really based upon personality, and presence on camera. Per their request, I laid out the guy in the SRT8 Challenger who claimed to be a roadracer. He was kind of a dick. Claims, heads cams, etc etc on a what I thought was a really stock looking challenger. Kept talking about his Beemers, and MB's he owns. He said he has 12,000 miles on it, His SRT8 is about three years old, now I have about 130,000 miles on my V, I said on camera, "12,000 miles, have you even learned how to drive it?" He told me he has harder miles in his 12k, than my 130k RIGHT! Apparently you don't me very well. On camera, I'm like "Sooo... you replaced the most efficient heads Chrysler offers with an upgrade for 5k? Being that you did your smoke show with your traction control on, I think you didn't do crap, you just wrote the check." Then they asked me what I thought of the "Dallas cowboys" club...Now I'm a huge New England Fan, and NE just beat the cowboys that week, I just walk over to my trunk and put on my PATS cap and said, "That's all I have to say (installing cap), Brady Said it all..." I was the only only they did not allow to leave after the burnout, I had to sign more releases, so I'm feeling pretty good about it...I left about 100 ft of smoke and rubber on the filmed exit, right after roadracer laid about 5 feet. So that alone should make the promo..lol..who knows, but it sure was fun promoting and representing GM Muscle.

I don't watch MTV, so definitely let us know if you find out when it will be on. It will be nice to see a V on tv that is the right color. :stirpot:

I have seen that. That's were they have 4 people and they drive each other's cars to see which one is better. I have caught a few minutes of the same episode like 5 times.

Good time to get some sponsors for the engine and paint (dented hood), and do some name dropping on the show!

This #24 Conoco/Phillips CTS-V really pulled hard all day long, and we're really proud of our team that we've put together.

Hope you can get the new engine going, fix the paint, etc for the MTV show.

Also... better get a short shifter and change up some bushings otherwise, its gonna be a clunky ride when everyone else gets in there. LOL

mrmojo95
11-22-11, 01:21 AM
Yeah I'm early christmas shopping for myself right now, engine mounts, cradle bushings, power str line, adds up quick...oh snap..wonder if I should get tires or keep em smooth for dramatic drifting effect...lol
