They asked us to build a 50s Formula racer, and all we had was a motorcycle engine.
24 hr project.

I got to race this one, and won.

Thats some seriously Mad Max **** right there.

Assuming I don't have access to international broadcast TV, when/how can we view this series? That looks like a hell of a lot of work and a hell of a lot of fun, good show sir!

Not aired yet. We were told it's slated for October.
I'll post YT links when it airs.

For the record, the tracks on the first vehicle has close to 1400 welds.
It was exhausting.

Crab car. Two drivers, two steering wheels, all six wheels steerable.
We built this one in 24 hours, too.

4X4 off-road racer. Tow hook was included as an inside joke.
24 hour project.

We used an old 4X4 truck we could get our hands on.

Another Renault engined trike.
We finished this one in 24 hours and raced it on dirt.
This was probably the scariest thing I have ever ridden (driven?).

Then, they said they wanted a speed boat.
With a 2 stroke motorcycle engine....
In 24 hours.

So, given the puny engine, I thought the only way I could get some meaningful speed would be with a hydrofoil...

You know, sometimes I feel like I have accomplished something in life... but then I read a post by Soviet.

Edit: LOLZ!

You can obviously see how the inner workings of my brain work. Also, Soviet has been posting some gnarly wiring stuff lately so I don't think I'm entirely off base in regards to ingenuity and build quality.

But yeah, whoops.

lulz

I propped everything. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing how the boat turns out, will absolutely watch this show. I'm guessing it's something along the lines of Junkyard Wars, and I LOVED that show.

I hope that thing freaking flies!!! You should send pics of it to Mike Rowe and tell him you built it from scratch out of your head.
