Ayyyyyeeeaaah! That Lexus?!? in black in the second to last photo is sweeeeeet! Wide wheel base but thinking that "car/thing" might lift right off the ground at higher speeds. Maybe the oversized wheels would keep it on the ground...guessing the 4 wheels weigh more than the rest of the car!

It's the total and complete contradiction. A "look at me" car using cardboard to say "LOOK AT ME!!!!!!!!!!!". I could cover my Saturn in aluminum foil and no one would care. But this, this is a work of art!

Yeah they are like over 1000 HP, I heard in a 6cylinder? but that would be shocking if it were true. But those things are like hell on wheels, watch a video of one O.o scary
