What will they think of next?

Jet engines? From junk? Color me impressed. You could definitely see that the Auto Amigos had much more control of the jet on the second run. I was kind of disappointed that the Dirty Drivers never really got up to full speed.
Does anyone else think that the machines have gotten really complicated the last few years? Jet propelled trikes are a far cry from a hand pumped diving suit or a turnip launching trebuchet. Though I am looking forward to the laundry launchers in a few weeks.
Anyways, just hoping to spark some conversation. Adios.

Actually, I don't think it panned out quite as they expected. I mean, I'm surprised nothing blew up or apart, especially considering the first run slagged the thrust vanes and burnt off all the paint. It was a good challenge, but next time I would hope they seed the yard a bit better since it seemed like they blew far too much time scrounging. :\ I mean, we want to see the plume of flames shooting out the back on the FIRST run, not the very last :D
