White Zombie crashes in Netflix "Fastest Car"

Recommended Posts

Found a new show to me this weekend on Netflix, "Fastest Cars" the show pits a super car against home built sleepers. I was happy to see the electric Datsun 1200 White Zombie on episode 7 i think, The instant torque and weight of his electric car would give just about any super car a run for its money. Well things didn't go as planned leaving the line, about 60' out the Zombie started to spin and took a hard left into a very nice 72 Mazda RX2, both drivers wrre ok, both cars are repairable but what a bummer. Hope to see it back on the streets soon, heck it may be fixed already for all I know.

Yeah its been out for months only Datsun on the show.  I thought the way John the owner of the white zombie was a bit heartless toward Abel's RX-2 which was an all original car expect the suspension and engine.  Its sad seeing two cars like that both go out, especially after john said he was gonna go easy on launch.  This type of thing can happen when your on the track and I get it just felt like John didn't really care much since even before the race started he was trash talking on the mazda. 

 

Friends of Abel were able to get a GoFundMe account to help out since Abel wasn't even going to repair the car since his family came first.  its being repaired as of right now but it will never be the same.  like the saying goes "its only original once".

Well, if you race your car....chances are it'll get damaged, lucky he didn't get killed, could have been worse....

They where racing on an old airport runway, not a prepped track, and he kept his foot in it when the car started getting out of shape. Big mistake. 

Just abort the run and save the car and yourself. And in this case, the other guys car.

You say John was heartless about what happened.  The fact is he is emotionally prepared for WHAT can and will most likely happen on the track.  Hes been racing for many many years with white zombie.  Im sorry to say, the owner of the rx2 should not of been tracking his car if he was that concerned about it getting damaged.  Shit happens on the track.   Ive seen a few people say john showed no emotion and didnt care.  Thats not the fact. People forget this is a tv show,  they are going to edit it for the drama as well.  I know john feels bad, but at least hes not crying about it.  He will fix his car, like he has before and it will be back.

When you track your car,  be prepared for a wreck to happen. Cars break loose all the time.  Cant handle the heat,  stay out of the kitchen. 

 

Also if you pay attention, john asked for the outside left lane, citing that the car could break left if something happened, instead they gave it to the giant diesel. He knows his car and what can happen, yet the show didnt listen.

...w KO on this, if you race, legal or not, track, airport or not, good chance something bad will happen. Fortunately,no one got hurt.

John was driving like a goddamn idiot and deserved to get his ass beat. He said it himself, he needed to be careful with the throttle, he freaked because Abel holeshotted his car and he knew it was basically over. I feel terrible for Abel, he was going to win that race, no one was catching that rx2. Bottom line, you go up in smoke, you get off the throttle.

Be honest with yourself, why should he get his way just because, they drew straws. The wreck was no ones fault but Johns. I get the impression you don’t know who Abel Ibarra is, he was the king of the NIRA circuit for years and held the quartermile import record for years as well, he’s far more experienced and qualified to be on a track than John. Cars do break loose frequently, but it was arrogant and dangerous to stay balls deep in the throttle when he was already done.

So you say. Once it comes loose there's not much that the driver's input does. Rear axle might as well be welded. Once it comes loose and begins to turn it's almost un-recoverable. You weren't in the car. Stop finger pointing. Shit happens.

You get off the throttle, not try to drive it out. He is not Willy Borsch

How do you know if you don’t even know who Abel Ibarra is, nor have you seen that car run. Notice how he never talked in detail about his setup? He only said top quality parts, best that money can buy. They never showed a good angle on that engine either, could be a cosmo triple rotor under there. John said himself that the mazda was his biggest worry, that he expected it to start running him down by the eighth, thus he needed a holeshot. Abel had boost by gear setup with soft first and second, yet John didn’t holeshot by more that a couple feet and Abel was already running him down inside a hundred feet. I get it, you love Datsuns, John is a folk hero for most Datsun guys...I respect that. However, I’m a fan of good, safe racing with safety over ego...John’s ego exceeded his talent. He knew who Abel is, he knew he’d have to get out a ways to win, ego is what kept his foot on the throttle and took the two actual fastest cars out of the race.

Mike, I respect your Datsun knowledge, I really do. I’ve watched and gone to drag racing events since I was a kid. I’ve seen countless times where someone goes up in smoke, peddles a bit and keeps it under control. I’ve seen it with cars from 500-5000hp, and it’s the same story, back out of it and keep it straight. They weren’t going fast enough yet for it to be uncontrollable if he lifted. The main thing here was lack of skill and knowledge when it comes to running a really powerful torque based car on a no prep surface. My guess is Johns first time on a no prep track was on the show, the way he drove it so hard off the line screamed rookie. That runway has shit traction, a 1000+ hp drag car got smashed on by a rat rod, pickup truck, and ford gt because he couldn’t hookup. That guy got off the gas and didn’t wreck anyone else.

Wow, you’re a little triggered. Take a look at the argument pyramid, ad hominem attack is at the bottom, and almost universally suggests that the person going to such low territory knows their argument is shaky at best.

Since you want to dive in the mud, let’s go. I don’t know you, I guessed you had no clue who multi record holding NIRA champion Abel Ibarra is, you never acknowledged you did. What you did do is ride Johns dick and act like a little bitch for no other reason than someone having a different opinion than you, with the large difference being I actually backed my opinions instead of acting all keyboard tuffguy. I know who John is, I’ve seen the car run, I’m also not his personal cockholster...you obviously have claim to that. I’d bet you’ve not seen zombie waste anything on a no prep track, if you knew the difference between your ass and a hole in the ground, you’d know it’s a whole other animal. Should we dig any deeper in the mud? Maybe you’ll act like a damn adult next time. Another Jackass for the ignore list.

P.S that show is quite possibly the dumbest show I've ever seen.  Even fast forwarding didn't help....

I am sure they wanted variety for the show, but, they did very little to even the playing field. Racing on a old concrete runway and then doing the finally on a dry lake bed is pretty stupid. And having all of the cars run at once is also pretty dumb. 

 

This is a paid for show, Netflix, and not Bozo Garage Shit Fest on what used to be a good channel, so why all the stupid shit? The guy in the Van almost kills himself and the Datsun 1200 hundred might as well have raced on ice. 

 

It was entertaining in the way that watching someone eat shit is.

Ya, I haven't seen a single episode, waiting for the footage of the fuckery in question... nothing available on YouTube yet.

Show is gay af, I’ve seen a total of about ten minutes between two episodes. I just fast forwarded to the end on episode one, and only watched the Ibarra interview sections on the episode in question. I doubt you’ll see the idiocy in question, netfux is nazi as hell about their shit showing up on YouTube. It’s too bad shit happened, I wanted to see two things. 1, how fast that insane little rx2 was, and 2, the inevitability of the fishlipped broad in the aventador get smashed by all three competitors.
