    Has anyone watched SLIPS?

    Has anyone watched this? Basically you put your car up to be potentially taken. There's 3 packages:
    Speed
    Cornering
    Combo
    Then comes the race, 1 lap, winner takes loooooooosers car.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I think its pretty crap. The basis of the show is good, but all the mods are the same for every car choosing the same "performance" package (all packages inc alloys which the biggest I've heard is 16", and a body wrap).
    Speed - induction kit, s/s exhaust manifold, ecu remap
    Cornering - ARB, sports suspension, drilled and grooved brakes
    Combo - induction kit, lowered suspension, brakes

    If I was the "mod" master, there'd be a hell of a lot more done.
    So, what's your opinions?

    Its on a very random channel called VIVA. I only came across the show after I got an email from R-TEC Auto Styling.

    Oh yes, on a very very very tight budget. I was thinking of turning a potential mk3 1.6 16v sport into a track car. I'll do the combo package at home, with a bit of the performance package, then take the cornering package from them.
    What do you lot think?
