Post some pics Herc! Let us see!The controllers the were using was an Xbox wheel mounted in a nifty housing with a seat and TV. I took a seat out of a car from the junk yard made a mount for the wheel and pedals. I can plop it down in front of my 47" TV. I kept the seat track so I can adjust my seat to how ever I want it.
The editors did a pretty decent job with this interview I was at the filming for that segment and it was awful.The Big Star/Small Car segment, though not all that impressive driving-wise, was really good. ...and not because of the girl, but because of her interaction with Rutledge and it seeming like a genuine and interesting conversation.
Because the producers asked them not to until they had aired this episode, just to stir up controversy on this and other forums. Remember that all press (throw internet buzz into this) is good, even when it seems bad.Okay, now the Ford Focus racecar is a "Production Car."
Jeez, if Ford was gonna do this, then why delay the announcement by a few weeks? Saved us the hassle of bitchin' at each other over whos right and who's wrong. Also, would've been a great promotional tie-in of sorts (I mean, they constantly try to throw the Ford Raptor into situations on Ice Road Truckers.....)
Don't make me  image you again.Because the producers asked them not to until they had aired this episode, just to stir up controversy on this and other forums. Remember that all press (throw internet buzz into this) is good, even when it seems bad.
NO PLEASE!Don't make me  image you again.
why y'all gotta be a hatea?Don't make me  image you again.
When has any corporation ever thought up a rationale idea?
"I know.....let's have one of our works drivers flog our race-prepped overpriced econoboxes on a bad rip-off of a British TV show that ranks 17th in overall ratings on some basic cable network, get in on a lap time board nobody cares about, rattle some no-name sites with controversy, and THEN we'll announce Joe Schomoe with $100K to burn can get the same car as Tanner Frost drives!! How great is that idea?!"
Mere driving by "drivers" Ken Block and Travis Pastrana in some podunk rally event attracts more attention than TGUSA!!
Cause I hate the idea that if your gonna promote something and not even offer it for public consumption, then why even bother?why y'all gotta be a hatea?
Ironic part is, they only started to release the FJ Cruiser in Japan just last year!! To replace the Hilux Surf....and then shipped here where they barely sell. 14k+ FJs sold last year = not many sales at all. Wonder why they bother with that one?
Oh well, didn't mean to derail the thread. Carry on!
