I dont know where else to post this.
Ive watched these guys since they were shady tree. I always kinda had faith of whatever in the show and them untill now.
But I think its kinda funny for sam and dave to advertize porducts like this.
what are you thoughts on Zmax

thank you for the facts on zmax glad to see that these companys are made accountable for there claims
CRANK&CHROME will have to defend itself sounds like politics.

i love this part
<<According to the FTC, the CRC L38 test is a standard auto industry tool to measure the bearing corrosion protection properties of motor oils. In February/March 1997, an independent laboratory performed two CRC L38 tests of zMax for Speedway and Oil Chem. In those tests, motor oil treated with zMax produced more than twice as much bearing corrosion as motor oil alone.>>
did i read that right or is this crap actually more corrosive than Oil alone?
shame shame shame. :-(

it would be nice if all the companies that made and promoted products like these had to prove their claims to an independent and impartial council before being able to sell to the public.

Remember, guys.... this is how they pay their bills. A company provides an info packet for whatever they're trying to sell, and they pay BIG $$$ to production companies to advertise it. Just because you see them show it; doesn't mean that they necessarily endorse the use of it. But I do wish that the producers had put a little research into it before they told the guys to sell it.
Just my opinion; but I may see something on the show; but before it goes on or in MY car (my baby) I do the research so I can make an informed decision. Just like gasoline.... you may like Texaco, I may like Gulf.... it's all up to the individual. (FYI I don't like Gulf...LOL)

very true thought about that too. But are times that bad that they NEED to advertize things like this?
Im just surprised thats all i guess :-)

I'm not happy they are endorsing those products either. It insults the intelligence of their viewing audience. It's still my favorite show, but it just gos to show you, money runs everything. They should just say NO to the snake oil salesman though..
