    Sounds very good, but how would these points be calculated?

    I think it should be considered in to the complexity of the build. Like the panel should have categories that they give ratings in a scale of 1 to 10. Like Build quality, Style, Fluidness, Originality. Just have it factor into it somewhere

    I had an alternate idea after thinking about this thread again today. I think it would be far more interesting to do collaborative projects between two builders with similar styles and tastes, but maybe not similar work habits. It would be a far more interesting way of building a tighter community, something a competition otherwise might not inspire.

    Ah, very good point. Competitions can force people apart, especially if they're dead set on one side. Collaborative projects would definately be the better option.

    I agree that would be very cool, but that being said some people do not have anyone nearby to collaborate on a project with (although I'm presently trying to get my friends more interested in it.) Plus some people may not be comfortable with meeting someone they've only ever met online.

    The collaboration wouldn't really need to be done all at the same location.

    That could get crazy in a hurry... Having one person do half the mod, then ship it to someone else for the second half.

    That said, I'd love to give it a try, if there's anyone out there interested in collaberating with a newbie like me.

    Ah I see what you mean now. I just wonder how well that would work, I'm sure the clash of ideas could result in some strange looking mods...

    That's why they do the planning together, and agree on everything.

    Ok I understand now. Sorry for being a bit oblivious. Yes it would be a very interesting competition, but not one I would like to attempt, because I like to work on my own schedule, with a "when its done" due date.

    The collaboration concept is a great idea, which I've totally coincidentally embarked on--my latest project is in collab with another poster at the abit forums, but it brings a whole new perspective because he cares about things like case pressure and fan filters, which forces me to rethink things that I don't typically care about.


    Here's another idea: American Hotrod, American Chopper, American PC shop?

    Its just a show title. I'm not entirely familiar with world television, but I haven't seen UK Chopper or Aus Hotrod from the same production company Learning Channel/Discovery Channel as the Biker Build-off.
