The teams have to make 5 kilogram of noodle to receive the next clue.

Sorry, I did not translate carefully. The teams have to make noodle from 5 kilogram of ingredients (including water). As a result, they only need to make about 15.

The motorbike task was basically the TARAu/TARPH sand dunes/clue under a basket task, except much more physical and dangerous. I didn't get the drone part though since they just had to follow the road/path, didn't they?
The drone is supposed to lead the teams to the right direction. I think because it was not safe anymore, the producers decide to get rid of the drone.
Edit: Some teams thought that they need to catch the drone to get the clue.

Also, here is how I interpreted the dirt bike challenge. Let me know if this is inaccurate:

The teams have to 'chase' the Sting bottle that flew away on a drone. The 'story' being presented is that the bottle flew away, and then hid itself somewhere on the course, as if it was alive. But, besides the drone flying away at the beginning to show this story, they didn't ACTUALLY have to chase it. The task itself was to find it hidden.

Oh! That makes sense. It's actually kind of fun and cute and definitely a nice product placement task.

The drone is supposed to lead the teams to the right direction. I think because it was not safe anymore, the producers decide to get rid of the drone.
Edit: Some teams thought that they need to catch the drone to get the clue.

But then again, since some teams thought they had to actually chase after it, then it's definitely not the safest task. Especially when they're going up and down those hills. Though the non-driving team member could've been the lookout if needed.

I haven't looked at this version for a while, I saw the first two seasons and I remember a funny woman who was an absolute disaster with some American guy.

Looking at the two episodes here, it's definitely tough.  I appreciate the climbing and a bit of danger with bikes (as there was on the Canadian version recently).  Climbing up a ladder is definitely much harder than just rappelling (what the US version normally does).  Also hitchhiking with trucks than just using taxis or buses.

It's interesting to hear the explanation of the end of the first leg, I assumed they had been told it was a non-elimination and so just checked in together.  So only one of those two teams could be eliminated in the second leg?  I assumed the drones were just meant to guide them in the direction they had to go, I had no idea it dropped a bottle.

Amazing how TAR has been having a dry spell, and now four seasons are coming out at nearly the same time!

Which is the 4th?  I know there's this, Canada and Israel.

I think he means how 31 just ended. Australia was recently announced but that's it for now.

The teams having to walk up the mountain at the start of the Leg and then hitchhiking gave me the Pekin Express feels. It was actually kind of refreshing watching it on a TAR  :clap2:

Are the two guys on team Green not related to each other? I assumed "Vũ" was their shared family name, and I thought one was using "family name last" style while the other was using "family name first" style.

No, Chu is also a common family name in Vietnam, so I think Vũ's family name is Chu.
