    Question Junkyard Jamboree Tractor in RSR?

    A rather interesting find, really. I was there on June 19 (the day before this video was posted) and both tractors were there, but did not tip. THIS video, however, has a regular sized non-tipping tractor. But then next to it, it appears to be a MJJ sized tractor replacing the other tractor.

    Anyone know anything of this? It's around the 2:45 mark.

    If you notice from the video you posted those tractors are not working at all. They have been having problems with them since last year. Since they are not a major component to the attraction its one of those when we have parts to fix things. I have seen them in all four states: working, not working upright, not working on back, and missing. Its only been a year and these two tractors seem to move more than the vehicles do.

    I noticed this the past couple of times I went on it the past 3 months. They pretty much use MJJ tractors to fill in for the big ones since they have been having problems with it. I was there 2 days ago and the big ones are back but not flipping over yet.

    Did not the Micechat team say that John Lassiter, the Pixar folks and WDI came in and fixed those issues?
    No worries, stay calm, one question. 
Do you happen to know how to fly this thing?

    This has never happened to me. I was there yesterday and both normal tractors were there, but still didn't work

    Was there last night, both big tractors were there, not tipping though. Doc was working though inside of the shop, and the mist was also doing its thing at the finish line.

    I rode last week, and it was nice to see Doc working again.
    The mist at the end was new to me, it has never worked on many prior visits.

    It's a bit funny to see the MJJ baby tractor in there. I hadn't noticed it on a recent visit.

    Looks like it is from Mater's. I like the size variation though. Looks like its far into the field.

    When I went Friday the car we were in lost the race but the audio said we won. I wonder if their car said that too.

    Supposedly some of the AAs have been fixed, as well as the mist screen, while the tractors AA's are supposed to be replaced in the next couple of weeks.
