Surprised none of you watch Cleetus.  I don't watch any other channels really except his.  I absolutely love the Leroy videos.  Helped get me through last year of having a broken car and not racing myself lol.

Those guys have managed to get to trending youtube top 10 on new video launches which is absolutely amazing for a car channel about racing, tuning and building cars.

I've never watched any of this stuff. Maybe I need to do a channel of my own and show what it takes to do it right. Nobody cares enough about details which drives me crazy and makes me dig in my heels even more.

Bad obsession Motorsports cares. Trust me.

Love This Old Tony. His random dad jokes are on point.

I've watched a couple of the Cletus videos. Not quite my cup o tea. A few are interesting but most are just too much "patriotism". Feels like they are using patriotism to get clicks. I know he's really a patriotic guy it's just too over the top for me.

MUST WATCH BOM of you haven't already. Every single episode. I genuinely envy someone discovering the channel these days. 20+ episodes of amazing.

Cant watch bad obsession in detail, it seems like they go out of their way to make things more detailed and difficult than it needs to be.
I do watch Cleetus a lot and his channel's amazing. What he's done with leroy in the past 2 years and his channel is really pure genius.

I was wondering how he would top that build but he's deff going to with the jet car project.

I remember bad obsession mentioning that they are going out of their way to do complicated things just to showcase their abilities and give others ideas on how to solve problems.

I remember watching 1320 videos of Texas 2K street racing haha, way before Cletus.

If you guys haven't seen it, you should check out 3d_magic_mike's instagram.  While I love the stuff Bad Obsession is doing, I really love the innovation on Mike's build.  I was absolutely blown away by him 3d printing a die for stamping sheet metal.  I saw that and shouted out "THIS IS GENIUS!!!"

I haven't had cable in 15 years.... but then again I was working for the first .com companies in my mid 20's haha.  I watch a few of these shows like Tavarish and Rob Dahm....  It's just entertainment and my kind of REALITY TV!

There is some stat I read that every 1,000,000 views these guys are making $6-7K/mo.... which doesn't include all the free crap they are getting.  Cleetus McFarland makes 2-3 videos per week and each one gets 750,000 views+.  Let's say 8 videos on average per month.... x 750K view= $36-42K per month income!  That is some loot!!!!  Plus all his toys are writeoffs.

I'd hate to see his 1040. All those sponsorship type items count as income.

Been watching Tavaris and I like him.  I've been rolling though his shows in the garage while working on projects.  Watched some Cletus episodes and liked it at first and then he started to really get on my nerves so I'm kinda done with him.  I'll probably catch a few episodes here and there.  B is for build is decent too but I got kinda bored with him as well.   

Still, non of them compare to BOM.  While they go overboard, I feel like I learn things from them and they do a good job explaining why they do what they do, no matter how over the top it is.
