Speed debuted two possible new shows

With the pinks guy as the host.
One was seeing if two 1/4 mile cars can handle severe abuse without blowing up.
The other was a game show where 3 people tried to guess a cars 1/4 mile time after the driver listed the engine, HP, and other misc facts about the car.
Anyone else see them?

the one about guessing the ET's was DECENT not great, but the blow it up think was completly retarded. it was boring seeing them go run after same run with the same cars and nothing happening but brake fade.


figures that the guy from pinks would come up with this shit.

A few things annoyed me about the "name that time" show. 1. The loser host kept saying "now that's a burnout" after every POS did their burnout. 2. Idiots that would not answer questions about their car when contestents were trying to guess what ET they would run. Are they supposed to guess how fast your POS car is from the paint color? WTF? 3. Why would they tell the contestents to show their times to the crowd? Who cares if the crowd sees what they wrote after the host announced over the PA what they wrote. Kind of a cluster F IMO.

Other than that it was pretty cool The concept is good but they just need to handle it differently

I think they may want to work on the titles a little bit.
