    Zooming in on Tea Bags, mugs of tea, lots of ‘proper job’ and pan out from grease filled finger nails. There’s that’s 90% of it taken care of sorry for the spoilers.

    Cheers, nearly missed it!

    surely he’s done his underwater safety training before getting in an F1 boat?

    good spot, got Ch4+1 lined up to catch it from the start. Hopefully more like ep1 of his series, less like James May’s Yawn Stories πŸ™‚

    The mrs is gutted, that powerboat section was only filmed down the road, she’d have had him round if she’d have know he was so close.

    Friend of mine was at the glider club in Lee on Solent where they filmed one of the programmes. He drank a good few cups of tea with Guy aparrently…

    I like how the cost of the measuring equipment is always given as a sign of expensive = good.

    No scientists, no calculations, not floatating shit.
    Paddle tyre and flat out balls to the wall shit. πŸ˜€

    Watching it now, the powerboat is nuts, I used to watch those idiots racing around Bristol harbour!
    Love the scales, freebie trumps expensive gizmo!

    More importantly, what conveyor belt for next weeks episode?

    That was properly mad!

    That was proper mad, only thought I have is, if the ski had have been wider and a bit flatter it may have planed easier/further. Just a thought coming from a long boarder background.

    Still mental tho

    It did seem a bit odd that the record allowed you to fit skis etc to your bike? Surely, it should just be a std bike? (allow a paddle tyre that’s it) Other wise, whats to stop you just making effectively a jet ski?

    It’s not allowed to float when stopped.

    well drill a couple of holes in the jetski then!

    I watched worried that the ski on the bottom of the bike looked a bit too much like a big one of these.

    Not the sort of thing that you want a high speed interface with.

    Has to be powered by the driving wheel of the motorbike. Not a jet of water.

    Only seen the start, but pretty disappointed about being able to glue a ski onto the bottom of the frame rails. πŸ™

    No different to using a specific front/rear tyre IMO, its not like it affected the bikes ability to function as a bike.

    Them’s the rules, they stuck to them.

    Didn’t enjoy it as much as the last episode (which was excellent), mainly because Mythbusters did a very similar thing last year. Not sure how far they went, but it was pretty far, and without a paddle tyre!

    Really surprised he wasn’t wearing a buoyancy aid, he was hitting the water pretty hard!

    Guy is nuts…….but Travis is just bat shit crazy balls…

    Nitro Circus have been hydroplaning for a while too. Without a ski, or paddle tyre.
    Possibly with more success too…

    Edit, too slow. Again.

    Nitro Circus use the ‘grande cajones’ branch of science. the bigger your balls are, the higher/faster/stronger/longer you go.

    I did like the way the developers of the hydrofoil just said “there’s too much going on here to work out how/if it will work” better just give it a go.
    What I didn’t understand is why they didn’t trial it more in shallower water where the bike doesn’t sink down to 30 metres (maybe they did but it wasn’t shown). Surely this is more about technique than anything else?
    I imagine he’s had a lot of these things to do over the past year and just didn’t have time.

    They did – in the dug out bit long before they went on-site – it was in the programme.

    yeah, but they did it like three times and it was over 10 metres and he only got it right once. They should have done it in an Olympic swimming pool.

    Why didn’t the bike have some sort of transmitter on it? I thought a float on a bit of rope was a bit low-tech.

    johndoh

    Well yeah, I assumed they had more than three attempts but didn’t show them all – it would have been a bit boring… πŸ˜‰

    i did think even a decent strobe light would have helped things. And whether leathers were the best choice of safety kit.

    He’s got a Rourke Fixie then?

    Dunno… but he has got one of these.

    I’ve been in it that lake and can confirm it is freeeeeeezing (if you are fully clothed and it is January) so don’t blame him not going in loads of times…
