Rotsun Returns!-Roadkill Preview Ep. 103

Watch the full episode on MotorTrend:
If there has been one car in the Roadkill fleet that absolutely never fails to fail, it’s the 1971 Datsun 240z rust bucket known as the Rotsun. From the beginning, the Rotsun has let Freiburger and Finnegan down over and over, whether it be at autocross events, drag races, shootouts, or even 24 Hours of Lemons. However, it’s the one car the guys can never quite give up on even though it’s fulling deserving of desertion. Over the years it’s had a variation of power plants, its latest being a junkyard turbocharged 5.0 Liter V8 pulled from a fox body Mustang. Now on this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan attempt to get the Rotsun back up and running after years of neglect, by finally fixing its independent rear suspension issues and attempting to drive it to SEMA. Will the Rotsun fail to fail? #Roadkill #Rotsun

  • the views that roadkill got here on youtube make youtubers celebrities, literally... i just picked 3 random episodes i see 10m 16m 54MILLIONS VIEWS, one of the biggest marketing fails i have encountered. no problem, i will sign up for your 14 day free trail and watch the remaining episodes i havent seen on your webiste, when im done i will unsub so that i dont get charged after 14 days and will never look at your website ever again, only because youtube has more content that i will ever need to consume, talk about going outside of youtube, outside of my comfort zone to watch something... people dont even watch movies anymore, they watch youtube.... something that made roadkill big, and you stabbed the hand that fed you... can anyone mention me any other show that did such a move? or is roadkill the first?

  • LoL.. Not getting enough subscribers to MToD? Lets put teasers on youtube! Guess what there's so many other options now. Lots of great content producers, still making money off youtube content. Really enjoyed Roadkill over the years, but by the time you left youtube it was just another car show...

  • Stupid amount of rust damage to the whole structure of the car - more mindless stupidity by a pair of pros who, without the need for whole ‘internet funny clowns routine’, really do know their stuff. They both must cringe every time the director says ‘action’. :-)

  • With 6.42million followers, would it be possible to get TRvision sponsors to support the channel instead of paying motor trend for one awesome show... or get a contract with Amazon? I just know I love Road Kill but I’m not paying for any more tv subscriptions than Amazon or Netflix but that’s my own issue. Anyhow, the hosts of Road Kill are a great combo and getting to see Randy test drive once in a while is really awesome fun to watch... Great show, great hosts... and wish them the best
