Would TAR be any different if TAR debuted in 1980s or 1990s?

I reckon so! The editing would be different and same with the countries visited.

Interesting question. In the 80's, yes, there would be a few differences in Europe.
-Germany was East and West prior to the wall coming down in 1989
-Prior to 1991, Croatia and all its neighbouring countries were part of Yugoslavia
-Russia probably would never been an option, being the USSR also prior to 1991

Can't immediately think of examples in other parts of the world

So how long carry-on cameras that TAR has been using since its debut has been around?
Whatever.

What was reason that TAR introduced Elimination Station from TAR 11-17? Did some drama happen in TAR 10 Elimination Station (owing to diversity of the cast) that the production felt that Elimination Station would be good?
Whatever.

Could a team use the Express Pass to skip/win the Fast Forward-clue?

Becca & Floyd had an Express Pass when they chose to do the Fast Forward. If you skip it with a Express Pass, you automatically get a 4-hour penalty, if I'm not wrong.
Whatever.

There's no 4-hour penalty but it's specifically prohibited in the rules according to Becca & Floyd.

Perhaps if they had given the EP at FF, the FF task instructor would have rejected it.

That idea of a 4-hour penalty for EP'ing a Fast Forward has been around since Season 17 and keeps popping up on Wikipedia. Where the heck did it come from? It doesn't even really make sense.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

Could any team use express pass in intersection and face off (double battle) tasks, when the EP have been introduced since Season 17, no intersection task placed there, intersection was occured in leg 5 and leg 8 of TAR Australia 1, but at this time, EP already used

I believe the EP in Australia 1 was good until the second Czech Republic leg, meaning it would be irrelevant for the second Intersection and the first Intersection was literally just so the team of four could pick up stuff to deliver to an orphanage which...a regular team could do anyway.

Whatever.

I don't know where to post this, but..

Has anyone tried to use these performance index formula in Excel? It doesn't seem to work out for me. It ends up in a number just slightly higher or lower.



This is from http://datameetsmedia.com/who-dominated-amazing-race-29-computational-approach/

Also this domination index formula:



If anyone solved it, please tell me how to type the formula in Excel so I can calculate TAR team's domination index! Thanks!
Whatever.

I think the performance formula listed is wrong (based on the articles explanation). Because if a team finished 1st, their performance would be 1-(1/#) or something less than 1. I think the correct formula is 1-[(placement-1)/(teams-1)]

It worked for me. Thanks.
