    Default Stormchasers on Discovery Channel.

    Anyone watching this season? Love the show, but now they have a group of chasers that own, "TornadoVideos.net" with them and these guys seem to find all the tornados in state.

    However, they're a bit to geeky for me.

    TIV II is a beast of a machine, but damn the thing is a piece of shit.

    Discuss!!

    HH<---Actually wants to go storm chasing. Maybe we can get a small, "VHLinks Storm Chasers" group up sometime in the future? ------------

    Im game! Me and my cousin have always wanted to go tornado chasing.

    I love that show though. I watched it all the time when i lived with my parents (they have directv and I have basic cable now). I was kinda dis-appointed when they built that monster TIV and werent able to film any tornadoes.

    Good show!

    I got a kick out of the locations they were at. One team in Iowa, my home state. And another in Oklahoma, my current state. The Oklahoma team was actually pretty close to my locale. Bartlesville is about an hour north of me. Having spent most of my life in states prone to tornadoes, i can gladly say that i have never seen one in person.

    I think I'll check it out now. I had seen the commercials for it before, and now that a few of you have seen it, I think I'll check it out.

    I can't quite get my head around the idea that the TIV will get swept up in a tornado and flung about two miles, coming down in a crumpled heap of sheet metal. Perhaps that's why people tune in.

    LOL! You might be in for a rude awakening when you discover that 99.9% of stormchasing is driving all day and seeing nothing...even for the guys that know what they're doing. That show has edited most of the busts obviously because it wouldn't make for a good tv show if all you saw were people sitting around bitching. Trust me.

    How about Destroyed In Seconds? Time Warp is fairly cool as well. They use a super slow motion/high def camera to film everyday things, to impressive effect. You'd be surprised how cool juggling, skateboard tricks and balloons filled with water exploding can appear when viewed with exacting detail.

    I don't doubt that there's alot of stuff we're not seeing as far as the show goes, but driving isn't a big deal for me. And besides with a crew of VH Linkers in the car, the drive would be a blast, TRUST ME!!!

    I wanna do it!!

    I love the show, but if I was Sean, I would ditch Josh and go with Reed. Josh couldn't find a tornado if it landed on him.

    That new TIV is a royal POS. It is obvious they didn't have an engineer design that thing. If they had, they wouldn't be breaking axles, having tires fall off or frying brakes.

    Just read on the Discovery.com message boards that they completely rebuilt the drivetrain of the TIV2. It was just completed recently and should be good to go for next year.
