The De-Construction episode was by far the best. Chaos Crew should make the semi-finals, purely becasue they bodged the best vehicle yet.....The Muncher

I agree on that same episode, it wasnt well matched but the problems they ran into made for a great run, 2 well designed machines ending up close at the end. both came out with realy minor buggs, i think the driver/operator position in the claw vehicle in the de- construction episode was poor, but other than that truly my favorite episode.

Hi Guys, We really appreaciate your comments on what you felt was the best episode so far. One point about the comment regarding the driver/operator position, the driver was in charge of the vehicle and a seperate operator (myself) was in control of the Muncher arm and jaws using the hydraulic controls located on the right hand side of the machine behind the drivers cab. This was not very clear to see in the program. You may find a few piccy's on my own site at http://www.user.globalnet.co.uk/~garfirth/ and a number of links.

If you want any detailed photo's of the machine e-mail me from the website.

The very best to all you guys Stateside

HEY JUNKYARD WATCHERS!! Clearly i think the best show was when they had to make a boat that goes into water, and can get it way back out of the water and drive to victory, that was the funnest show to watch! keep the show fun and enjoyable, thx guys!!

The battle between the Chaos Crew and Beach Boys was my favorite. Spike is just plain nuts. I thought I could weld. I never would have attempted to make that last weld. I hope the Crew gets in the Semis on a special dispensation clause. Either that or they become the poster children for K.I.S.S. At the very least, they should be shipped lock, stock, and barrel to the US for next season's challenge.

My favorite episode would have to be the walker from last season?s final. Partially because it was such an arcane concept, I wouldn?t even know where to start. The fact that the contestants got it to work was just amazing! On top of that, the fact that the winners jury-rigged their contraption together with a *BELT* on the race course made it just about the coolest thing I have ever seen.

I think the best Epasode is with the Little cars,and when the Red one went around like 7 more times with no visable Petrol...That was SOOOO FUNNY!

favorite is the wind mill, started us into thinking of making a windmill on our own,found some nice book , and liked the egg beater type. just saw the fire boat and was sadden being from chicago i wanted the nerds to win , my whole family uses a palm pilot, and a bit geeky too.will hope one day for the USA to take home the trophy one day. thanks for all the new ideas that challenge the mind.

My favorite 2 episodes were the steam car and the building demolition. The NERDS and the Chaos Crew are the 2 best JW teams ever. The muncher was awesome and the NERDS steam car worked like a treat.
