I got to see this one. At least now I know a bit of the ling :D

Seriously though, my son kept on saying "Whoa!" every time they had a launch! He thought it was the cooling thing in the world. However, I think he thought the cato was cooler :p

Yeah, the "Cow-to" was pretty spectacular. That whole episode is pretty amazing. All three are, actually. My boss still has my video from when I taped them the first time they aired back to back to back. I need to get that back from him.

My favorite is still the Big Daddy with the big green motor...

I know some of the guys personally who built the Big Daddy.

It was powered by three AMW M1850 Green Gorilla motors along with three CTI J400SS motors although the flame and smoke from the M motors blocked out the black smoke effect from the three J's.

It also has an interchangeable motor mount for single EX O motors as well.

Neil McGilvray, of the Udder Madness group with the Big Cow, was quoted on the show as saying "What could go wrong? It's a rocket." His other well known saying is "when rockets go right they are cool, when they go wrong they're really cool."

The Big Cow was super cool.

I've actually said somethig similar to my wife. I told her that on one hand, I can lanch a rocket high into the air. On the other, I could blow something up.

Where is the downside??? ;)
