Have we spoke about this show yet? If so, just humor me. I am at work and have nothing better to.
Any of yall seen it? They build some of the coolest things. If you haven't seen it 2 teams of 3 with an expert in the field they are competing in have one day to build whatever the project is. Most efficent wins, ie fastest, farthest etc. It takes place in a HUGE junkyard somewhere, England I guess, and they scavenge all sorts of crap.
They have had a couple where they used motorcycles. Once a BMW? was used to make a boat. It was mounted in the inverted roof of a van. Motor and shaft drive used as a inboard/outboard motor basically and the rudders were attached to the front end of the bike via pulleys. Nice fast little boat to transport people. Of course, the competition sunk their pontoon boat made out of barrels, if I remember correctly. Then the bike/boat came around and picked up the competition.
There was also one where they used a ZX11? motor to power a home made offroad buggy to race around a track.
And of course both won!
I think it would be badass to be on the show competing.
Man, I need to get out more!
