Discovery Science Documentary - Building The Ultimate Racing Car
Josh Borne had the unique opportunity to provide Discovery Channel engineering advice on a colossal wheelie machine build when two Detroit garages, Monkeywrench Racing and Voodoo Choppers, went head to head for a one-of-a-kind build off challenge.
Borne used his engineering background and experience from Kettering University and General Motors to help contestants create the ultimate machine. Monkeywrench Racing and Voodoo Choppers were tasked with merging two motorcycles into a single four-wheeled vehicle in an effort to win $100,000. The garages goal: to wheelie the longest distance down Michigan's historic Grosse IIe Municipal Airport runway. Training for this task took place on beautiful Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan. Of course protective gear was generously provided to the hosts and contestants by Josh Borne's sponsor, Scorpion Sports Inc.
