Also "going for the gusto"?

The gusto has been got. This is the pinnacle of the parking lot build

This. This is amazing. A parking lot build that took 5th overall.

You guys are incredibly impressive. This is inspiration for other "Come Together" style builds pulling in folks who wouldn't be able to do this alone or due to time demands in their life.

It's like Southpark underpants gnomes go racing.

  1. Steal underpants.
  2. Build car.
  3. Something.
  4. Profit.

Maybe it's the sleep deprivation talking, but I keep failing to write anything that can properly sum up my feelings about this build and my first time at the challenge. This thing was awesome, insane, and exceeded my most optimistic expectations with its' overall performance- thanks for letting me be a part of it!

Had a great time with everyone knocking this out. For reference, this is what happens to the weight distribution when you remove everything rear of the tank and add a 6 point cage.

That is suprisingly similar to our thorough checklist.

Ghettocet racing

Car did surprisingly well. Beat 5 other cars in XP and was only 1.5 seconds off ftd.
