NEW IDEA! : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I suggest Robots that Fight to the DEATH!............. Just Kidding....I love it when those veins pop out of your forehead.

My idea is is just....discussing the show. I think it's more interesting that way.

What I was wondering...since I missed part of the shows that they are airing right now....and dont' worry..I'm not gonna say...why only one host....yadda yadda yadda. I'm well aware that they are showing the season 1 My Question is about the Experts. From what I heard....they aren't exactly experts in that particular field....I thought they were introduced as just regular guys who are joining the team to help them out. Am I wrong? Just wondering if I missed something.

I'm going from memory, having missed it Monday night, but from what I recall (somebody please correct me if I'm wrong) one of the experts was a power-puller builder/driver while the other was an agricultural engineer. Any one aggree/disagree??

One was a champion power puller driver. I'm not sure if he built them as well. He was a truck driver during the "day".

The other was a university lecturer in farm equipment.

in that particular series.......with somewhat different approaches to diffentials and wheel configurations......when both machines were runnig propperly....they were matched dead even ! was always some sort of mechanical prob that cost the pull in all 3 heats!
