    Default Hyperdrive on Netflix

    Anyone watching this? Just started binging it yesterday. Pretty awesome to see a variety of cars on the show.

    It's like American Ninja Warrior for cars haha.

    Kinda cheesy at parts but OK so far. Still not sure what to think of Bisbing as a commentator.

    Poor Annie May (or whatever her name was). Imagine making the trip, selling off part of your business, just to fuck it up. Oof.

    Yeah, the South African girl whose dad sold his tow truck to get her into this competition right?

    That was a tough run to watch. So many cars have gotten fucked up by the water levels.

    I watched it last night as well. First car, that 240sx was awesome!! Built perfectly for the course minus the water obstacle. The funniest part was that old guy in the Corvette, bragging how he won 64 races, this and that, he won't lose. Turfs it in the first obstacle and then crashes into the pillar, then his post interview, I didn't die LOL.

    2nd episode it looks like they ditched the driving through water obstacle cause of so many cars getting fucked. And changed it to a water cannon spraying a ton of water in the air and if your car is quick enough to beat it before it hits your car.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Yea felt genuinely bad for her. But also, she's 22 but did anyone else get the impression that she's like... super young?

    I expected more from the the Corvette guy as well; maybe the nerves got to him.

    She looked more like 14 to me and had a great run before the car gave out. I think everyone in the crowd was rooting for her.

    That 21 year old Brazilian kid is nuts. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does in the later stages.

    Most innovative so far has to be the Huracan haha.

    Yeah, they do. One guy busted an axel during his run and got time afterwards to fix his shit up for the next race.

    she came back and they let her finish her lap. Makes me wonder if they actually tested stuff like the water cannon.

    The difference is that some of these guys are racers, not drifters and this show is all about drifting. This is why all the racers got knocked out pretty quickly.

    Mercede's guy opening the door was just stupid, not even sure how they picked him for the show.

    I like it. I'm on the 5th of 10 eps, but I find myself wondering about the cost. Hope it's not a one-and-done series, but it seems like it would be a crazy high cost just to get the course set up - the lights, the lot, etc. I mean the cost of that leveler alone had to be huge.

    Watched it. It was pretty good. Totally satisfies the inner fast and furious in me but I felt the competitors got a bit ripped off. They were totally unprepared for the obstacles because netflix told them nothing. The water killed so many cars and could have been avoided by 25$ in ABS piping.
    Track was totally favored to drivers with drift experience so the corvette guy with autoX history had no chance ROFL.

    Some of the obstacles were cool and how people choose to tackle them. Hilarious how much the teamwork brokedown on the equalizer/ teeter totter thing. The rails on the other hand just fucked up cars unnecessary.

    The South African girl was really heart breaking but the special attention they gave here was a bit much. Hopefully the producers had a kind heart for her behind the scenes.

    Here is the view point from one of the competitors. I don't feel bad since he lied to be on the show, but it shows how some stuff happened behind the scenes....

    Anyway, fun to watch, hope they do more, maybe with different terrain.

    Can't believe people did this with no prize money/etc. on the table. In fact, they PAID to be there.

    I watched 1.5 episodes, fast forwarded the "fluff" (back stories, host commentary, etc. that nobody cares about) When that girl dropped her pink mic, the cringe factor was too high for me to continue watching haha. Just a little too cheesy for me I think.
