V8 to the Rescue:Edit

V8 to the Rescue was a new segment introduced in series 4. It features the presenters using a V8 engine to, intheir minds, fix a common problem. So far they used it for a see-saw, kebab rotator, and bowling machine. All of these have failed. The segment was featured at the end of the episode.
