NEW IDEA!greenspun.com : 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 !....it was always some sort of mechanical prob that cost the pull in all 3 heats!
